FORD, Joshua Edwards, missionary, born in Ogdensburg, New York, 3 August 1825; died in Geneseo, New York, 3 April 1866. He was graduated at Williams in 1844, and at Union theological seminary, New York, in 1847, and in that year sailed for Syria, under the auspices of the American board of commissioners for foreign missions. His first station was at Aleppo, where he was also forwarding agent, postmaster, and banker for several other stations. He spent six months there, and when the Turkish mission was formed was transferred to Beirut, where he remained for four years, and then removed to Sidon. He went to England in 1861 to present the claims of the Syrian missions, and in 1865 returned to the United States on account of illness in his family. He edited several books in the Arabic language, and wrote a work in that tongue, entitled " Fasting and Prayer."
