Daughter of Rachel Ann Sugg (1856 - 1922) and Robert H. Ford (1853 - 1892)

Ethel Sugg Ford, born 13 April 1888 at 1718 Christian Street, Philadelphia, PA; died 13 May 1933 in New England Baptist Hospital, Boston, Suffolk, MA. On 15 Feb 1905 she married Thomas Burton Kinraide in St. Stephens Episcopal Church, Savannah, Georgia.

Thomas Burton Kinraide was the son of Thomas Kinread and Hannah Elizabeth Tuttle of Moncton, New Brunswick. (Please see the Kinread-Kinraide Genealogy for more information.) He was born 01 July 1864 in Moncton, New Brunswick and died 29 June 1927 in San Jose, California (age 62), buried along Oxallis Path in Forest Hills Cemetery, Jamaica Plain, MA. Burton Kinraide emigrated to Massachusetts in 1882 and changed the spelling of his surname. According to voter registration in Sandwich, he was naturalized on 18 Nov 1893 . He settled in Waltham and worked in the Waltham Watch factory. One hot night T.B.K. went for a long ride on the street cars. In Jamaica Plain he could smell water, got off and walked toward it. Stopping at a house to ask for a glass of water, he met Mrs. Reid. Her husband was Mr. Gideon Reid, the head of Tiffany's Paris office. She was able to provide financial support so that T.B.K. could spend time on scientific research. By 1900 he was settled in a newly-built large house at 38 Spring Park Avenue in Jamaica Plain with a laboratory. He first invented a series of acoustical forks for measuring sound waves. He later focused on electrical experiments which lead to the invention of the Kinraide coil. This high-frequency coil was used in x-ray photography, and also allowed him to photograph and study electrical discharges. He obtained several related patients between 1899 and 1910.

About 1905 T.B.K. was fishing on Cape Cod when he found some land on Spectacle Pond in Sandwich for sale. He purchased the land and began adding on to the original Quaker building and barn until it had 12 rooms and a screened porch. The separate log cabin came from New Brunswick for a 1910 sportsman's show. The beach cottage began as a 14 x 14 foot widow's walk on the Spring Park Avenue house but was later dismantled and moved to the Cape. Between 1905 and 1920, the family spent the winters in Jamaica Plain and the summers in Sandwich at "the Hermitage" on Spectacle Pond.
Ethel and Thomas separated in 1920 and the children went to live with their mother and grandmother in Newton Center. After Thomas Burton Kinraide died, Ethel married William Thomas Casperson. (see section below.)
