Henry was born on July 30th, 1863.
His parents names were Mary and William.
He was born in Dearborn Michigan
Henry married Clara Bryant on April 11th, 1888.
They lived happily together and had a son named Edsel.
Edsel married Eleanor Clay, had a son Henry Ford the second, and later inherited the Ford Motor Company.
Ford’s first car was the Quadricycle. It has four wheels.
For the Quadricycle’s first test run Henry took it out in the middle of the night.
At first people were not buying the quadricycle because they didn’t know who Henry was.
But, there was a solution..
Ford needed more publicity so he built a racecar, the 999.
Henry raced his car against Alexander Winton’s car the Bullet
He had hired a man named Barney Oldfield to
drive his car.
They were racing 5 miles.
The 999 car took 5 min. 28 seconds, the world record time, beating the Bullet.
Henry’s friends helped him turn a wagon shop into the Ford Motor Company.
Henry made a new car that costs $850.
Another racecar was built to give Ford even more publicity.
He drove the car across a frozen lake, a mile wide, in only 36 seconds.
Ford made the model T in his experimental room.

“It will take a hundred years to tell whether he helped us or hurt us, but he certainly didn’t leave us where he found us.”, says comedian Will Rogers, when the Model T was in style.
