I also am a descendant of the Fordhams from Ga. My great-great grandfather was Ira Fordham, born 12/20/1823, in Ga. There are no records of any other family members coming here from Ga as all known Fordhams here are descendants of Ira and wife, Priscilla Dean, who was from Alabama.

After returning from the Civil War, Ira bought land in Jackson Parish, La, where he farmed and raised 5 sons. Four of his five sons were ministers.

I have been trying to trace Ira's lineage. Is he possibly in your records?
