Spelling of name Hosford/Horsford
Posted by: Frank Carver Date: June 24, 2001 at 08:09:24

According to what I have been able to learn, William Horsford was the immigrant to the new world. He spelled his name with an "r" in the middle. Somewhere down the line the "r" was dropped.
Does anyone know who and when this spelling changed?
