The Foree/Fore families of Shelby and Henry Counties, KY were all descendants of the "Widow Faure," French Huguenot woman who arrived in Virginia aboard the ship "Mary Ann" in 1700.
Her oldest son was Pierre Faure, who arrived at Jamestown, VA Feb 1701 aboard the ship "Nassau" with a wife and one child. They settled on land granted to Huguenot refugees along the James River in a settlement called Manakin Town.
He had several children, among them a son Pierre (Peter) Faure/Foree, b. abt 1709 in VA, who went to KY after the Revolution along with 7 of his children (he had 13 children from two marriages; was widowed when he lert for KY). Fort Ruddles Station, where they were staying was attacked by Indians in 1780. Peter was killed and his children were captured and taken to Detroit. The sons eventually made their way back to KY, one daughter, Keziah, married a British officer and lived in Canada and New York. A letter written to her by one of her brothers, Joseph Fore, in 1826 survived and reveals some of their history.
Among the sons who returned to KY was Peter (Pierre) Foree (b. 1745 VA, d. 1844 KY) who eventually married Sallie Pryor. They were the parents of William Foree, father of Judge Foree.
A tremendous amount has been written about this family. The names of the wives of the the first two Pierres/Peters are sometimes interchanged, so I have not mentioned them.
