Can anyone help me with : FOREACRES - FOURACRES- FOURAKER- FOREAKERS- FOREAKER
There are other ways this name has been spelled but these seem to be the most common.

I am tying to locate the parents of: ZILPHA / ZYLPHA FOREACRES, and her sister, NANCY FOREACRES. The story has been handed down that the girls were born in England and came to America as servants to a Capt. James (Jim) Walker. Zilpha is listed in the 1850 Nassau County, Florida as being born in South Carolina. Zilpha's date of birth was about 1800. Nancy her sister was born about 1802. It is believed that Zilpha's first son, Nathan b. 1820, was born in the Fargo, GA area. Zilpha married David Lang son of Richard Land and Sarah Benson. For many years the Fourakers lived in North Florida in Nassau County. I have found a Jesse Foreacre in the 1830 census but I have no idea if there is any connection between the sisters and Jesse.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you
Roger
