I the old tax record of Buckingham Co. VA, now in the State Library, Richmond, VA, in Dist. # 2, is found names of: Joseph Ford, William Ford. These are carried on the tax books as of Prince Edward County, VA, and always spelled Ford until about 1800 when the name is spelled Fore. Later in KY, the name is spelled Foree.
