There are 19 Ford family members buried in this vault built about 1829. Nathan Ford (1763-1829), brother to David, chose the location on the Oswegatchie River, in what was then a picturesque wooded spot, with the front of the vault facing the river and the back facing present-day Lincoln Avenue. The vault has been vandalized a lot over the years and the door to the vault is now permanently sealed. A great deal of mystery and legend surround this vault, among other questions the fact that 3 people buried there died before the erection of the vault. Where they were buried previous to that is unknown, as well as how and when they were moved. For more history on the vault refer to Ford Family Vault on Find a Grave website. Also see Anne Cady’s website for more photos.
