Am searching for any information about William E. Ford, who we know was born in 1763. A letter written in 1900 by one of his descendants, says he was born in northern Ireland, but that takes in quite a bit of territory. We know he died on August 17, 1826, in/near Stillwater, Saratoga Co., New York, and is buried in the Stillwater Baptist Churchyard there in Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York. He married Nancy Edmonds in about 1790, after he had come to the colonies.
According to the letter, he immigrated sometime before 1776.
He is supposed to have bought land first in Saratoga County around Bemis Heights probably in about 1785.
