West ford slave. A freed slave named west ford is said to have frequently relieved him on such occasions by bleeding him then at last one morningwestford was sent for to bring billy out of a fit. West ford was born about 1784 at bushfield plantation in present mount holly virginia. The blood would not flow. He grew up there with his mother venus and grandparents billy and jenny.

Three descendants of west ford son of a slave called venus contend that ford was fathered by george washington. There is no documentary evidence that george washington ever met venus the mother of west ford who was a slave belonging to his brother john augustine washington of bushfield plantation nor any. In 1977 a local historian in fairfax county virginia discovered a freed slave register that proved that west ford had been the slave of hannah washington. West ford was born in 1784 or 1785 on the bushfield plantation in westmoreland county virginia to venus a mulatto slave woman owned by george washingtons brother john augustine washington and his wife hannah.
