 The Ford Motor Company (FMC) mainly inspired the migration of many of our ancestors from their southern native home of Arkansas in the 1920's, including our very own uncles John, Albert, and William Ellis, who worked at the (FRFP) Ford Rouge Factory Plant. For those interested, the option of a morning guided tour of the (FRFP) in Dearborn, MI, would be educational, sentimental and nostalgic.
