The Fore family will be next noticed. The first Fore known to the writer was Joel Fore;
he was an exemplary man, and a good quiet man, unpretentious, and strictly honest- a man who
seemed to measure every work, and practical in him management in every day life; he married
a Miss Finklea and raised a considerable family, sons and daughters. Five of his sons, Thomas,
Daniel, Willis, Stephen and Alfred, were best known in the county. John, Joel and James,
three others went west.
