About Pierre Peter Faure Ford, II

DAR #: A041010

Pierre Faure II, at the age of 61 in 1776, moved his wife and children still living at home from Virginia to Kentucky where they lived in the pallisaded fort at Ruddle's Gap, Martin's Station along the Licking River.

The fort was attacked by the British and Indians led by Col. Byrd on June 22, 1780 which resulted in the massacre of many of its residents.

Pierre and several of his children were captured and forced to march north to Detroit and Canada. The oldest child, Judith, was sick and couldn't keep up so she was scalped and died.

Pierre died a short time after the attack.

Amongst the children forced to march was Silas Faure, then about 14 years old. According to accounts of Silas, his sister Keziah was carried off to the north by Indians where she met Joseph Wycoff whom she married and later lived with in New York.

Pierre II's older sons, Peter III, Francis, Jesse and Hezakiah were Revolutionary war soldiers who fought against the British in Virginia and North Carolina.
