I just happened to be looking for a William Ford in Albany County today at the library and came across a listing in the 1790 Census of the State of New York...

Name: Ford, Wm.
Town: Stillwater
Free White males 16 or older -- 1
Free White males under 16 -- 2
Free White females -- 2

I also came across a citation in the "Genealogical Data from Administrative Papers from the New York State Court of Appeals in Albany" book (Abstracted by Dr. Kenneth Scoll)--

...there were no wills for any Fords, but in a case regarding the estate of Warner, John, of Easton, Washington County, 5 Aug 1817, there was mention of an affidavit of a William C. Ford who was testifying that the deceased had a cousin in Stillwater.

I don't know if any of this is helpful to you or not, but I thought I'd at least share what I have discovered....

I myself am tryng to find a William Ford in the Albany area who was born circa 1820 so it is really too early for me to know if there is a connection between these people and the one I'm looking for....
