John Ford House (January 9, 1827 – June 28, 1904) was an American politician and a member of the United States House of Representatives for Tennessee's 6th congressional district.


House was[1] born on January 9, 1827 near Franklin, Tennessee in Williamson County. He attended the local academy and the Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky. He graduated from Lebanon Law School in 1850, was admitted to the bar, and commenced practice in Franklin, Tennessee.


House moved to Montgomery County, Tennessee, and was a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives in 1853 and a presidential elector on the Constitutional Union ticket of Bell and Everett in 1860. He was a member of the Provisional Congress of the Confederacy from Tennessee. During the American Civil War, he enlisted in the Confederate States Army and served until paroled in Columbus, Mississippi in June 1865. He was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1868. He was a member of the Tennessee state constitutional convention in 1870.[2]

Elected as a Democrat to the Forty-fourth Congress and the three succeeding Congresses, House served from March 4, 1875 to March 3, 1883.[3] He was not a candidate for renomination in 1882, and resumed the practice of law.


House died in Clarksville, Tennessee on June 28, 1904 (age 77 years, 171 days). He is interred at Greenwood Cemetery.[4]
