We Saw Them People Sell That Land

This image is from part of the witness statements on a late 18th century deed in Amherst County, Virginia.

1. George Gilbert for James Rueker and Isaac Tinsley for J Rueker

2. George Gilbert for James Rucker
Isaac Forestey for I Rucker

3. In some cases, it's hard to take a small section of hand writing and figure out what it says because I personally need to compare it with the rest of the document but my guess on this is it says "George Gilbert for James Rucker ~ Isaac ________ for I Rucker"..... not sure about the first letter in Isaac's last name without comparing it to more of the document. Is it possibly "Forstey"?
