These are the Foree entries in the 1850 Trimble Co., Ky Census:
1 Foree, Cordelia 32 F Farming R.E. $2,680 b. KY
Sarah 13 F KY
John 12 M KY
Mary 10 F KY
Affia 8 F KY

48 Foree, William 39 M Farmer 2,500 KY
Foree, Jesse 88 M VA

77 Foree, H. 55 M Farmer 3,000 VA
N. 53 F Farmer 3,000 KY
Violett, P. 25 F KY

488 Foree, John H. 49 M Farmer 1,584 VA
Frances 43 F KY
Jeptha 24 F (?) Carpenter KY
Silas H. 22 M Farmer KY
Thaddeus 21 M Bricklayer KY
John 18 M Farmer KY
William 16 M Farmer KY
James W. 14 M KY
Mary A. 12 F KY
Theodore 9 M KY
James F. W. 6 M KY

These transcriptions are taken from the book "1850 Census, Trimble Co., Ky" by Donna Stark Thompson 1985.

Here' who I believe they are:
1. Cordelia Ricketts Foree is the widow of Calvin Foree who was b. ca 1785, Prince Edward Co., VA & d. 1843 in Trimble Co., KY. They married 5/16/1835 in Henry Co., KY. Calvin was the son of Jesse Foree 1761 VA-1851 Trimble Co., KY. Jesse was the son of Peter Foree and Marie Gaudwin.

48. Here is Jesse Foree, age 88, listed in 1 above and his son, William H. who married Catherine McIntosh.

77. I believe H. Foree is Hezekiah Foree, 8/10/1794-8/30/1860. He married Nancy Violett 3/23/1833 and they are buried in the Foree Cem. in Trimble Co., KY. Hezekiah was the son of Jesse Foree (#48).

488. Nancy Violett's sister, Frances, married John Henry Foree 12/10/1823 in Henry Co., KY. I believe this John H. to be the son of Silas Foree 1766-1859 Henry Co., KY. Silas was another son of Peter and Marie Gaudwin Foree. I don't know whether all the children listed are his or whether they include some grandchildren or nephews, etc. It seems strange that two are named James.

I'm still having trouble hooking all the Henry Co. Forees up with their ancestors. Has anyone done a tree on them?
Thanks. Julia
