 Sarn Ford   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Sarn Ford had probably not an actual village but there might very well have been some quays and landings at the brink with some few cabins around.
It is well known that Saruman used Sarn Ford for carrying tobacco out of the South-Shire.
In the War between Elves and Sauron in the Second Age year 1700, Sauron lost a great battle at Sarn Ford after the arrival of the Numenorians and retracted to Tharbad where he had forces standing.

This ford (along with the ferry at Buckleberry and the Bridge of Stonebows) would form the easternmost perimeter of Shire defenses.
Even though the ford is about 25 miles OUTSIDE of the Shire, it could be expected to be garrisoned in an emergency to deny passage into the Shire to enemy forces.
Without the use of this ford, enemy troops have to slog along the foothills of the Hithaeglir (either going south from Rivendell or north from Dunland) to arrive at the West Gate.

 Orc Sign by AuntKimby
Sarn Ford was still two full day’s march away across the Red Downs, and Pippin fervently hoped that they would not arrive too late.
The orcs spotted near East Sarn Ford were almost certainly scouts; the larger group of 300 is still hopefully several days’ journey on foot from the borders, which gives us a bit more time than we originally thought.
At the moment Merry sounded the Horn-call, Pippin and his troops were perhaps twelve miles from Sarn Ford, having covered more than two-thirds of the remaining distance from their previous night’s camp by traveling at a punishing pace since before daybreak.

 Mellonath Daeron : Attested Sindarin Plurals
A number of discarded names for the eventual Argonath, like Sarn Aran, Sarn Torath, Sern Aranath, Sairn Ubed (WR 2 I, note 5; IV:7), are indeed interpretable on the genitival pattern: 'the stone of the king', 'the stone of the kings', 'the stones of the kings', 'the stones of denial'.
Is Sarn Gebir analogous to Sarn Torath or to Sarn Athrad?
In Sarn Gebir, sarn is singular despite the plural cebir, and thus apparently a noun 'stone (as a material)' rather than 'stone' as an adjective.

 The Barrow-Downs Discussion Forum - Ruin of Doriath - Final Part
Thus the Ford of the ambush is unnamed.
As unlikely as it seems, Tolkien intended the Ford of Ascar to be in the mountains, very close to the source of the river, and yet did not indicate this on the map.
A Ford build from shingle-isles and with a high and step bank on the one side does not strike me as impossible for a short river (not more then 75 miles) in the mountains that swelled Gelion in a way that it was uncross able south of the confluence.

But when the night came the Lord of Morgul approached the ford, he spoke forgotten words of power that made the even stout hearts tremble in fear.
On September twenty-eight, the kinship still dwelt near Sarn Ford, too weak from their confrontation to travel long distances the rangers decided to wait for news to reach them.

 Encyclopedia of Arda: Southfarthing of the Shire
The southern quarter of the Shire, between the Three-Farthing Stone in the north and Sarn Ford in the south
Even more telling is the story of the final departure Merry and Pippin from the Shire, long after the War of the Ring in IV 63.
In Appendix B to The Lord of the Rings, we're told that they '...handed over their goods and offices to their sons and rode away over the Sarn Ford, and they were not seen again in the Shire.' It seems very likely from this that Sarn Ford marked the Southfarthing's southern boundary.

 GW Online : The Lord of The Rings : The Fellowship of The Ring : 2. The Trust of Arnor
Many of the Dúnedain fell or were driven mad by fear, yet not even a single Wraith fell to their skill, testament indeed to the dark power of the Nine Riders.
Exhausted though they are, the survivors ride hard in pursuit of the Nazgûl, hoping that there are enough of their brethren still before the Wraiths to bring them to battle.
In this, if in little else, the Dúnedain are fortunate, for the battle near the ford has divided the Nazgûl, hopefully giving the Rangers the advantage they need to defeat the Nazgûl and preserve the Shire from the Ringwraiths' intrusion.

If they don't reach Sarn Ford soon, they may decide to come back after us." He doubted it, but as long as there was that hope, Sondo thought that he would have an easier time keeping up the morale.
But the fact is, it's taking longer to reach Sarn Ford than I had thought, and we're running low on food." Reggie said nothing, but his look clearly implied that he was waiting for more.
His outlook was bleak, for just the same as he had not known how far away Sarn Ford was, so also did he not know how far away from home they were.

The Rangers assigned to the ford may have numbered in the tens or dozens, and perhaps were briefly reinforced as scouts and sentries fell back to the Baranduin to warn the main body of the approach of the Nazgul.
Night was waning on the twenty-second day of September when drawing together again [the Nazgul] came to Sarn Ford and the southernmost borders of the Shire.
Boromir's account of how the Lord of the Nazgul defeated his force at Osgiliath indicates that even a small army of several hundred men probably would not have prevailed against the Nazgul at night, when they were all together and led by their captain.

Sarn Ford had hardly deserved the name; the water had come up past his waist and the rocks were covered with mud.
He was just south of the branching to Tookbank, near the little Took Creek that wound its way through the southern lowlands to meet the Baranduin west of Sarn Ford.
A pot-bellied little Shire pony stood listlessly in the traces, sweat-stained flanks attesting to the effort the poor beast had made to pull the wagon from the ford's clutches.

 The One Ring: The White Council :: View topic - The Annotated LotR - Strider
According to Christopher Tolkien's Index to Unfinished Tales, "Sarn Ford" is a partial translation of the Sindarin Sarn Athrad, "Ford of Stones." UT, p.
According to UT, Sarn Ford was the site of a battle in S.A. In that year a fleet sent by the Númenorean King Tar-Minastir came to the rescue of the Elves of Lindon under Gil-galad, who were defending the line of the river Lhûn against Sauron's armies.
Apparently Sauron's retreating forces were caught by their pursuers at the Ford, and "Sauron was driven away south-east after great slaughter.

 Entmoot - Nazgul horses
Nazgul may have crossed the Isen in the morning of 18 and it is specified that the nazgul came to Sarn Ford by evening 22 (about 115 hours).
If he gave as detailed thought to the dates as you say, then why does he nowhere mention the fact that the Nazgul are riding mearas, it would seem to be a rather necessary point to explain the speed of the Nine.
There is also the fact that somehow the Nazgul are negatively affected by water and are stopped by water, yet at the same time cross the fords of two large rivers without pause or mishap.
