Comment on derivation of name of Stanford, KY

Vonnie Kolbenschlag writes:
Is the name of HWY 206 not "Sanford" but "Stanford"? (Ans: Yes, of course. That typo is now corrected. - EW)

As a short form of Standing Fort that Logan built as one of the earliest in Kentucky.

Dan Trabue and his brother had the job of supplying early forts with food, ammunition and letters from Virginia. Logan's Fort was one of the largest. From Logan's fort, Col. Casey, a brother-in-law, migrated to this area and built his fort. Logan and Casey were married to Montgomery sisters, women who endured living in forts and raising children in this frontier settlement. - Vonnie Kolbenschlag
