HISTORY: From this time on (1635) Richard is spelling his surname as FOSTER. He is considered the Father of most Foster's in the Southern United States today (2001). Other Foster's also came to East Coast and started their lineage in America. Some Foster's went to the northern Colonies and for the most part their descendents stayed north. Richard came to Virginia and his descendents are the beginning of the Southern States Foster's through his son Robert.

However, all Foster's relate back to Richard of Flanders in 1066 AD who came from Flanders (northern France) to England. 

Richard came to America at the age of 16. His rank in his father's family in England must not have been as the first or second son or he would have remained in England to inherit his father's estate. He was probably a 2nd child and saw adventure in sailing to America and getting a fresh start. Available records do not indicate that he came as an indentured servant to anyone. We do believe his passage was provided by a Bartholomew Hoskins.

His father (Robert) in England was living the life of a Knight in the good section of society as had all his progenitors since the Battle of Hastings in the year 1066 when William the Conqueror took over England. The brother-in-law of William was named Richard of Flanders. Richard was the son of Baldwin V. Soon after the battle he became known as Richard De Foriester. One of Richard Foriester's sons was Sir Hugo Foirester. He fought with King Henry I, as General of the English Army. Sir Hugo was Governor of Etherstone by right of inheritance. After successfully defeating the Norwegian King Magnus in 1101 AD Sir Hugo Forrester was appointed Chief Lord of the Royal Forest. Sir Hugo was a person of  great eminence during the reign of King Stephen.

In the Battle of Hastings Richard of Flanders was only age 16 but was knighted for his valliant services to William the Conqueror and received large land holdings in northern England and Scotland (Northumberland County, Bamborough (Bambough, Bamburgh) in Northumberland; land also known as Adderston (Henderston). The Forster's lived here for 12 generations in a position of honor as many were Knights to the Kings of England. Our Richard Forster (Foster) was a descendant of King Henry I of  England.

The descendants of Forster, Forrester or Foster had privileges, education and opportunities.  And thus the Forster lineage lived for the next 500 years.

HISTORY: James Richard Forster/ Foster (b. 1619) came to America on 10 August 1635 from England on the ship "HMS Safety". Recent research has caused most descendants to now believe though most records call him Richard Foster some records refer to him as James Foster. Se we now call him James Richard Foster.

WEBSITE: (10 Dec 8002) http://www.geocities.com/lunalaniz2000/DescendantsofRichardForster.htm Says that Richard was born about 1643 in Hampton or Gloucester County, Virginia and died in Abbington Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia.

Our immigrant Foster's father was Sir Robert Forster, who was born in 1587 Durham, England. His only son was Richard Forster, born 1619. Forster was changed to Foster upon reaching America, a more English spelling of the name. The following is an account of Richard with his journey to the New World. Richard Foster Immigrated to Virginia in the ship "Safety". The ship sailed from England on the 1st day of August 1635. He was 16 years old when he came to Virginia. Susan Garnett, who later married Richard Foster, was found living in Elizabeth Cittie in Virginia on 16th day of February 1623, with her parents, Thomas and Elizabeth Garnett. In 1624/25 a muster was taken of the Inhabitants of Virginia. In "Thomas Garnett and his Muster" show Thomas aged 40 and Immigrated to America in the "Swann" in 1610. His wife Elizabeth was aged 26 and came to America in the "Neptune" in 1618. Their daughter Susan was aged 3 and was born in Virginia. Ambrose Griffith and Joyce Griffith were on the muster with the Garnett Family. _Ambrose Griffith was aged 33 and came to Virginia in the "Bona Nova" 1619 and Joyce Griffith aged 20 came in the "Jacob". Richard Foster settled in Elizabeth Cittie County, Virginia and married there and was granted 250 acres of land in Lynhaven Parish in Lower Norfolk Co., Va. on 26 Nov 1653 beginning at the neck of the broad Creek running South, South West near a swamp, thense West etc., for transport of Dorcas Foster Senior, and Dorcas Foster Junior, Richard Foster, Richard Street, and Henry Williams. Later In 1655 the family removed to Gloucester County, Virginia where Richard Foster received 200 more acres for transport of four more persons: Ellen Foster, Mary Foster, Sarah Davis, Robert Bynum, Fra. Bignall. This land was at the head of Southard Creek on the Severne, in Mackajack Bay, in Gloucester Co., Va. Robert Coleman was granted land that adjoined Richard Fosters land on 18 March, 1662. As the nation grew, the Foster descendants migrated south into the Carolinas, Alabama, Georgia, and finally Texas; as well as East into Tennessee, and from there, launching themselves to the wind.

Says that Richard Foster was born in 1619, Essex, Durham, England. That he served in the House of Burgesses 1655-56. He also stated that he married three times: Susan (Elizabeth?) Garnett, Abt 1652 in Hampton County, Virginia. Then he married Anne (Foster), Aft 1652 and married Susannah Garnett, aft 1653. He died in 1691, Gloucester, Virginia. "Sailed to America on the Safety in 1635." 

This may be the "missing link" ancestor to tie our Foster family into the royal lineage of Richard Foster / Forster (born 1619 in England). My questions remain as to the "proof" that this Richard Foster is really connected to the immigrant Richard Foster / Forster.

This reference causes me to believe a "Richard Foster" was in North Carolina while our Richard Foster was in Virginia. Foster, Richard 1622?- Dictionary of North Carolina Biography. Volume 2, D-G. Edited by William S. Powell. Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 1986. (DcNCBi 2)

DEATH: The death place may be Abbingdon Parish, Glouchester, Virginia, USA.

Questions and Possibilities:

Though I haven't found the right Sarah Biggs married to John Foster yet, I do suspect that for Sarah to

be the mother of Richard Foster born in Whitchurch, Hampshire, England in 1723 that it is possible that

John Foster is in Hampshire England and has married a local girl by the name of Sarah Biggs. Can't

prove that yet. glf

In searching the IGI records for christenings (births) in Hampshire, England around 1700 I find several

Sarah Biggs. In fact for the 100 years prior to Sarah's birth I find the county is full of Sarah Biggs entries. glf

If John Foster is the father of Richard then it is possible for John to be in England in 1723 where his son

is born. It is also possible that his wife is from there and gives birth there. Can't find a John Foster

marriage. glf

John was born in Gloucester, Virginia in 1653 to 1670 and dies in Essex,Virginia in 1733.

Does Sarah ever migrate to Virginia? Do they have any additional children. Does Sarah die in England? glf

Questions - John Foster shows 8 children with nearly duplicate names with different birth years. Not

possible. glf

Also, John's spouse is unknown.

John has a brother by the same name of John born 7 years earlier? He has a spouse Sarah Biggs and

one son Richard Foster born in Whitchurch, Hampshire, England in 1723.... too late a birth for any of

these two John's? Both John's would have been in their 60's to be the father.

MISC_NOTES: Questions and Possibilities presented by Gary L. Foster that still need clarification (9

July 2005).

 

In searching the IGI records for christnings (births) in Hampshire, England around 1700 I find several

Biggs entries. In fact for the 100 years prior to Sarah's birth I find the county is full of Sarah Biggs

entries.

If John Foster is the father of my Richard Foster (born in 1723 in Whitchurch, Hampshire, England ) then

it is possible for John to be in England in 1723 where his son (my Richard) is born. Maybe it is also

possible that his wife is from there and gives birth there.

 

John and Sarah had the following children:

MISC_NOTES: I am currently (15 July 2005) going on the assumption that Richard Foster (born 1723)

had a father named Richard (born 1695) who left Virginia about the age of 20 as a single man or took

with him a Miss. Ransome to the families homeland of Whitchurch, Hampshire, England in about 1715. I

assume he lived in England with his wife and eventually his son Richard (born in 1723). I believe his

wife died in England or perhaps back in Virginia.

MISC_NOTES: (30 Jul 2005) I have now researched the microfilms (covering birth, marriage, death,

moving into or out of the parish, poor persons, tax lists on manor houses for Whithurch, Hampshire,

England and can not find any evidence that a Richard born in 1693 in Virginia every lived or married or

had a son named Richard born in 1723 in this parish.

MISC_NOTES: (3 Aug 2005) I believed Richard (1695) had returned to Virginia with his son Richard

(1723) prior to Richard (1695) re-marrying to a Sarah Fox in about 1733. In approximately 1746 Richard

(1723) marries Susannah Rand in the Isle of Wight. Soon both Richards join the other Foster family

members in Matthews County and live and work and die amongst them. glf

Richard married (1) Elizabeth RANSOME about 1723. Elizabeth was born about 1700 in , Prince George, Virginia, USA. She died in 1776 in Bristol Parish, , King George, Virginia, USA.

Richard Foster (born about 1695) in Virginia marries an Elizabeth Ransome from Virginia

and leave for England. There they have a son named Richard (born in 1723_ in Whitchurch, Hampshire,

England. Then they move back to Virginia and live first in the Isle of Wight County of Virginia. I believe

time will prove out that they lived on land owned by the Ransome family. Their first son was born and

named Beverly Ransome Foster. After the maiden names of both grandmothers.

The next 4 children were born in Ware Parrish, Gloucester, Virginia on land given them by the Ransome

Family. This is the reason I am guessing at as too why Susannah Rand and Richard Foster used the

Ransome name so frequently in the nameing of their children and grandchildren.

 

The Ransome family were some of the very first to settle in Elizabeth City, Virginia as Elizabeth

Ransome's grandfather Captain Peter Ransome was born in Mobjack Bay, Gloucester, Virginia in 1620.

The City got it's start shortly after 1607 which was the founding of Jamestown, Virginia. Peter Ransome

was responsible for transporting many people to Virginia from England. The English crown rewarded

him with thousnds of acres of land for this service. Peter and subsequently hs heirs had choice lands

for their inheritance. This wa a common thing to marry into and use the Ransome name in the naming

of their children. Peter had a son named Captain Richard Ransome that may have been responsible for

taking Richard Foster and his bride Elizabeth, his sister to England and back. glf

Bottom of Form 1

_I am posting this message as being of possible interest to those researching the children of William

Foster and Ann Booker. There has been some question whether Johanna Powell was the child of

William Foster or a second husband of Ann Foster's, possibly Thomas Powell. I think I can settle the

matter. It was not Ann Booker Foster who was married to Thomas Powell, but rather her daughter,

Johanna Foster. It is my belief that Johanna was, indeed, the daughter of William Forster and Ann

Booker; and that she was born in the intervening two or three years between when William made his will

and when he died, which explains why she was not mentioned in William's will. The proof of Johanna's

relationship to Thomas Powell is found in the will of Elizabeth Foster Hubbard, the wife of Benj. Hubbard,

and daughter of William Foster and Ann Booker. Elizabeth identifies Johanna Powell as her "sister and

wife of Thomas Powell". The executors are Booker Foster, Brother, and Wm. Craddock. The will is

located in Amelia County, VA will book #3:224, dated 30 November 1783. I am particularly interested in

this relationship, as I descend two ways from William Foster and Ann Booker: (1) via Johanna Foster

and Thomas Powell via their daughter Fanny Powell and her husband Phillip Adams - their daughter

was Susan Wood Adams; and (2) via their son Booker Foster who was the father of Joshua Foster. He,

Joshua, married Susan Wood Adams. I'm interested in exchanging information with anyone researching

the Adams, Foster, or Powell lines, especially the possibility of a marriage between John Adams and

Eliner Powell. My email is hkfuller@juno.com. Hal Fuller

Top of Form 1 William Foster and Ann Booker - Amelia Co., VA mid 1700s,

Posted by: Hal Fuller (ID 8825) Date: May 11, 2002

_Those who trace their ancestory to Ann Booker and William Foster of mid-18th century Amelia County

VA may have wondered, as I have, who were Ann's parents. Some accounts say Edmund Booker, Sr.

was her father; other lists of his children have omitted Ann. For what it is worth, I have obtained a (typed

not original) copy of Edmund Booker's will. It identifies an Ann Booker as his daughter.__The will is

dated November 10, 1757, It was proved by oath in court held for Amelia County, Virginia, September

28, 1758. The transcribed copy I found was in the DAR library, in Arkansas Genealogical Records for

1957-58, Vol 39, Reg. No. 45929, pp 195-96, submitted by Virginia Belcher Breck, of Little Rock,

Arkansas. I will try to track down an original Amelia County will book citation.__Names included in the

will are his wife Jane (news to me), sons Edmund Booker, John Booker, Edward Booker, daughter Ann

Booker (to whom he leaves "two negroes names Dinah and Delpha with their increase"), and daughter

Rebeka Overton. Of course, it need not necessarily be our Ann Booker, mother of Booker Foster, but

the timing is about right. However, I have seen some estimated birth dates for the children of Ann

Booker and William Foster starting as early as 1750, when she was still a Booker, according to her

father's will. But, what is eight years, in the grand scheme of the mid 1700s?__Another typed will in

the same collection is the will of Frances Booker Stokes, sister of Edmund Booker, Sr. A typed notation

following the body of the will (added by Virginia Belcher Breck??) lists the wife of Edmund Booker, Sr. as

Jane Clement with a date of Oct. 7, 1745, which I take to be their wedding day.__This might mean that

she was a second wife and possibly not the mother of all his children, as at least one son, Edward, was

old enough to inherit land in 1758 -- meaning that he was born before 1738.__Another note says that "

Their mother --(the mother of Edmund Booker and his siblings) must have been a "Widow Marshall"

before she married a Booker, as Frances Stokes speaks of "Brother William Marshall". This of course

does not track with generally acceped thought that their mother was Rebecca Leake. Another marriage

perhaps? A half brother, or brother-in-law? Thoughts, anyone?

 

William and Ann had the following children:

76 M i. Thomas FOSTER was born in 1732 in , Caroline, Virginia, USA. He died in 1796 in , Amelia, Virginia, USA.

Thomas married Prudence WORSHAM in 1752 in , Amelia, Virginia, USA.

78 F iii. Elizabeth FOSTER was born about 1736.

Elizabeth married Benjamin HUBBARD on 2 May 1756 in , Amelia, Virginia, USA. Benjamin was born about 1736 in , , Virginia, USA.

WILL: On 27 August 2005 Gary Foster received an e-mail from his DNA Cousin William Foster of North

Carolina. His email address is; William L. Foster [iwasa43fan@alltel.net]_Good Morning Cousin! I just

received a copy of the Will and Estate inventory for James Foster son of John Foster & Ruth -?- &

Grandson of Richard and Susannah Foster. I was assisted by Joan Graves in Charlottesville Va. Will

was recorded at the Albemarle County Courthouse 1795,Probably written years earlier since it refers to

William reaching his 14th birthday and at James' death 1795 William was over 20 and already married to

Sarah Lay daughter of Obediah Lay. Will is Rather interesting reading. He recognizes his wife as

Nancy . His son William (My Ancestor) was mentioned , Daughters Susannah, Isbell, Polly , and a son

Christian . Previously his second wife had been only referred to as Elizabeth by other family

Genealogist and I had never heard of a son Christian (Possibly Major Christian). I wonder if Nancy was

actually : Nancy Elizabeth or Elizabeth Nancy Parish. I've always noted many of the middle names of

males were sometimes never mentioned nor remembered by family just a generation or two later.

William did later name a daughter Nancy , another Mary "Polly" ; a third Lucy , a son Tilman and his

youngest son William. Tilman later named a daughter Nancy, another Susannah, and a daughter Sarah

after Tilman's mother Sarah Lay Foster. James's estate and distribution is several pages and mentions

Negroes so it appears he did have possibly 5 servants .

WILL: Your research notes on the WEB site are impressive regarding what you have found. Including

the refernce Maps for where the Colonial Fosters were is great. When you visit the Salt Lake city

Library again (Sept ?) please look into John Foster and one of his marriages as your line possibly is via

John's son Richard I believe. Everyone list more than 3 sons of Richard and Susannah but never is

anything other than Robert , John and Richard as having descendants. We are slowly nailing down the

lose ends and crossing these "Genealogy Brick walls"

WILL: Good Luck in your research visit to the files. William

BIOGRAPHY: This information is taken from the immigrant James Richard Foster research by Dr. Billie Foster.  It is repeated here to see if any clues exist to prove the relationship for sure between these two Richards.  (James Richard Foster b. 1619 and Richard Foster b. 1723)  Later information shows that this Richard Foster's passage was paid by Bartholomew Hoskins, ancient planter, and both him and Richard migrated to Lower Norfolk County, VA where both became prominent members of the social and political society. Capt. Ed Dittmer, retired naval officer, was the first to cast doubts on Richard being the immigrant and placed James Foster of Gloucester County as the most likely immigrant. This revelation was met with little interest by most researchers since it broke the tie with English royalty. However, there were several researchers, including Miriam Wood Dye of Memphis, TN, Gerneva Foster Dennis of Abilene (now Chicago), and myself who required more than "tradition" to accept the 1635 immigrant as our immigrant. We offer the following information for your consideration:

Richard Foster of the 1635 HMS Safety was transported by Bartholomew Hoskins. We have documentation that Bartholomew married, in England, Dorcus Foster, widow with two small children. Bartholomew was called father by Richard. (March 2, 1639/40.)

Conclusion - Richard of the 1635 HMS Safety was the son of Dorcus Foster and an unknown father and the step-son of Bartholomew Hoskins. We must assume that it was this Richard Foster who migrated, with Bartholomew Hoskins, into Lower Norfolk County, VA.

We do know that Bartholomew Hoskins and Mrs. Dorcus Foster had children and one was a daughter, Dorcus, who married a Richard Foster (from Hoskins family history). However, it could not have been the 1635 Richard Foster as she was only 5-6 years old when Richard called Bartholomew father and besides Dorcus was his half-sister.

Conclusions - There were two Richard Foster's found in Lower Norfolk. The second Richard Foster could have been the Richard Foster who came to Virginia in late 1630s or early 1640s and was a lawyer.

He has been reported as Richard Worster. He was the Clerk of the Court, etc and signed his name as "ffoster" which looks like a "W." Now, both Fosters were literate as indicated by many documents.

There was at least one other Richard Foster in Lower Norfolk. He was found on Bennetts Creek on March 25, 1653/4 and signed his name with an"X", i.Ed., he could neither read nor write. So, this separates him from the above two. It could be he who married Ann Jackson and fathered a child before marriage as shown in Lower Norfolk records.

There was another Richard Foster (Deed Book B, Lower Norfolk Co., VA, p. 51) at an inquest concerning the death of Jacob Bradshaw on April 11,1647. This Richard was also illiterate and signed his name with a mark "ff." He could have been the same illiterate Richard Foster (above). However, his mark was "ff" and not "X."

Conclusion - There were three and possibly four Richard Fosters in LowerNorfolk who are potentially our immigrant: (1) Richard Foster of the Safety, step-son of Bartholomew Hoskins, (2) Richard Foster, the lawyer, (3) Richard Foster, who may have married Anne Jackson whose mark was "X" and, (4) Richard Foster, the Witness, whose mark was "ff."

Now which, if any, was our immigrant? One of these Richard Foster's married Dorcus Hoskins and received a land patent in 1651 for the transport of himself, his wife Dorcus, and daughter, Dorcus, Jr. He probably was Richard Foster, the Lawyer, as Richard, the Step-son was in England during this time (more on this later). This Richard Foster was probably the Richard Foster who was a member of the House of Burgass and was called first Lt. and then Capt. and then Major Foster and followed his father-in-law, Bartholomew Hoskins, and brother-in-law, Richard Hoskins into North Carolina. We can eliminate him as our immigrant. Richard Foster, step-son of Bartholomew, was in England from 1648 to1654. He could be our immigrant. Then there are the illiterate Richard Foster's. They are possible candidates, however, not likely as we must assume that our immigrant was literate as he came from a knighted father, Sir Robert Foster.

There was a Richard Foster who received 200 acres of land in Mackjack Bay (later called Gloucester County, VA). This land joined Col. George Ludlow, who was in the records of Jamestown and Lower Norfolk Counties. Now, Richard Foster, step-son of Bartholomew Hoskins was in England until 1654 and the land was patented on April 1, 1655. Could this have been the Richard Foster who patented that land? Could this have been Richard Foster who married Susan Garnett and became our immigrant ancestor. We have no proof or even an indication that it is so - the land or the marriage.

So, considering all of these Richards, the step-son is the most likely, "IF" our ancestor immigrant was a Richard Foster. If we assume this, then all the records in Lower Norfolk that deals with Richard Foster must concern the others. If this be so, then what was our immigrant doing from1635 to 1655?

Even the doubters disagree with, is the more likely Richard Foster, our immigrant: (1), (2), (3), or (4). I (Bill Foster) guess I am the most deviant of them all, along with Capt. Ed (I cannot speak for Miriam or Geneva), as we do not believe that a Richard Foster was our immigrant.

Our candidate is the James Foster who was living in Kingston Parish, Gloucester (now Matthews) County, VA and was a neighbor of John Garnett. The Foster's and the Garnett's were closely associated and intermarried several generations. Robert and John Foster, brothers and assumed siblings of Richard Foster, bought land in Essex County in 1692 close to a James Foster. Although circumstantial, it is compelling evidence that Robert named his first sons, Robert and James and not Richard (Richard was his fourth child, after John). We present this information to you for your consideration and to elicit your comments.

Robert Foster, his brother, Judge of the King's Bench. Thomas' daughter married Thomas Brooks." "The Fosters were a branch of the ancient family of Etherstone in Durham County. Thomas and Robert were the grand-sons of Alexander Conyers, Earl of Bucan, who was descended from Roger de Quincy, Earl of Winchester, Magna Charta Baron, and from David 1st, King of Scotland. King David's father was Malcolm III, who married Margaret, daughter of Edward, son of Edmund "Ironsides Saxon" King of England, descended from Alfred the Great. King David's grand-father Duncan I, was murdered by Macbeth; and this royal line goes back without a break to Fergus II, King of Scotland, A.D. 404 - giving the Fosters a Royal Ancestery. " This makes the Fosters eligible to the "Order of the Crown".

It has been accepted for years by most researchers that the immigrant of the Southern Fosters was a Richard Foster, son of Sir Robert Foster and Miss Isham, who sailed from London on August 10, 1635 on the ship, Safety, arriving in Virginia in the fall. That he first married an Ann and then a Sussan Garnett and became the father of two known sons, Robert and John of Gloucester and later Essex County, Virginia.

MISC_NOTES: I have researched all the birth, marriage, death, poor people, land owners, moving into and out of Whitchurch, Hampshire, England from 1600 to 1800 and find no evidence of my Richard born in 1723 of coming from this area. There was a John Foster who had 7 children all christened in the local church at Whitchurch. I no longer believe my Richard was born here. I will concentrate my efforts now in Colonial Gloucester County, Virginia. glf

MISC_NOTES: Lived 72 years.

MISC_NOTES: Robert L. Jackson says that the father of Richard Foster (1723) is Robert Foster(1660-1670) son of Richard Foster (1619) (the immigrant ancestor). I would like to believe this version but Robert Foster is possibly too old (53 to 63) to father Richard in 1723 and some researchers say Richard Foster was born in White Church, Hampshire, England? It is also suggested that Richard's wife, Susannah Rand was age 5 to 10 when she married and that she waited 15 more years before starting to bear children? Something is wrong with the marriage date. Also, note the difference of 6 years between 1st son Beverly Ransom Foster and next son, Peter G. Foster. Are we missing some children? glf

MISC_NOTES: Gary Foster (2001) I need to see if I can prove the possiblility that the Richard Foster, 1723 born in White Church, Hampshire, England ties into this Thomas Foster from the same place in England. As of (15 August 2005) having just viewed many microfilms at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah concerning all Foster's that could be found in WhitChurch, Hampshire, England it is my conclusion that I cannot find any proof of Foster's living in, moving out, being christened, married, died, buried or being of the poor folks. It almost appears that only a few Foster's ever lived here and those names are recorded in the "Research Project" for Richard Foster & Susannah Rand on my website at http://foster.surnames.com/foster_research_project/research_source_checklist_richard_foster_&_susannah_rand.htm

Richard married Susannah RAND-RANSOME about 1747 in , Isle of Wight, Virginia, USA. Susannah was born about 1723 in , Isle of Wight, Virginia, USA. She died before 26 Nov 1794 in , Surry, Virginia, USA.

(As of 1 June 2006 we are still not sure if Susannah was a RAND or a RANSOME.) glf

here says that due to all the times the name RANSOM is used by both of the sons--Ransom and Peter, I believe that this woman was NOT a Rand. The name RAND does not appear anywhere in the pedigree.

With Southern naming patterns using the surnames of the women--sometimes for many generations, where are the RANDs? No one has yet been able to produce a document of any sort which would connect a Susannah RAND to a Richard FOSTER. (27 Jun 2001)

    Alexander Conyers, Earl of Duncan, had a daughter named????._She married _____Fo(r)ster. Their son, Thomas Foster, had a son Richard. Richard had a son, John. John had 3 sons who came to VA and settled: Joel Foster who settled on the North River in Matthews County, VA, Harold Foster who settled in Brunswick County,VA, and Richard Foster (grandfather of Sussanah Ransome Foster) b: abt 1703, married Sussanah Rand and settled on the North River in Matthews County, VA.

    Note: if the above is true then the Foster Family connection to Richard Forster / Foster b. 1619 (immigrant ancestor) is in question. glf

    Sussanah and Richard Foster had two sons: Peter (m. Ann Hall) and Richard (m. Elizabeth Jordan Hall). The women were sisters and daughters of Robert Hall and Nancy Johnston who had eloped from England and settled in VA. Peter and Ann were the Parents of Susannah Ransome. From this information, I believe William Harold Foster's parents were Richard Foster and Elizabeth Jordan. I have not confirmed this information but it came from a good source. Eventually these families go through Franklin County, NC.

    MISC_NOTES: Also, I believe William Harold Foster's parents were not Richard Foster & Elizabeth Jordan but were Beverly Ransome Foster and Elizabeth Coman. That still makes William Harold Foster and Susannah Ransome Foster 1st cousins. Peter G. Foster had two brothers, Beverly Ransome Foster and Richard Foster. The children of these three brothers would all be 1st cousins to each other. glf

    SOURCES: The Governor's Island: Gwynn's Island, Virginia During The Revolution by Peter Jennings Wrike (1993)_Hardcover, 166 pp._$19.95_$1.00 Sales Tax for VA residents__In 1776 the Royal Governors of Virginia and Maryland, with an armada of over 100 British warships, troop transports, supply ships and refugee vessels anchored off Gwynn's Island, Virginia. For almost two months the two governors, British troops, marines, armed sailors, loyalist regiments, and the African-American Royal Ethiopian Regiment confronted patriot forces. The island became the Governors' Island. This lively book details the campaign by Virginia's Lord Dunmore and his British allies on the Chesapeake Bay in 1775 and 1776. Dunmore led military, naval and civilian forces of almost 3,000 persons from Williamsburg to Yorktown, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Gwynn's Island and eventually Maryland. Dunmore's forces threatened the Bay's commerce and its inhabitants' freedom. British reinforcements of men and arms gave Dunmore the capability to subdue Virginia and other colonies. American patriots opposed Dunmore and waited for the right circumstances to attack. The book is well researched with maps of the area in 1776, British and American fortifications, ship illustrations and battle diagrams. British, Loyalist and American units and participants are contained in detailed appendices. A comprehensive bibliography, endnotes and an index complete this scholarly and readable story.

    DEATH: Died at age 27. Was a Revolutionary War Soldier.

    BIOGRAPHY: The History of Spartabunburg County BY Dr. J.B.O. Landrum, Chapter XXII, The Foster Family, descendants of Robert, Richard, and William Foster. CHAPTER XXII THE FOSTER FAMILY Descendants of Robert, Richard, and William Foster.

    WEBSITE: See Website for more information: (4 October 2005) http://www.geocities.com/~pamreid/hos2.html

    BIOGRAPHY: Robert Foster emigrated from Amelia County, Va. in 1783, and settled on the waters of

    Tyger River within the present territory of Spartanburg County. His wife was Miss Sallie James. He had seven sons, viz: Thomas, Robert, William, John, James, Ransom, and Moses. Thomas and Robert were residents of Greenville County , and died in that county. William lived and died near Bethlehem church in Spartanburg County. He married Miss Exie Wingo. James married Patience Benson, daughter of Wm. Benson, whose wife was Eleanor Key. He lived near the historic Fort Prince, and he and his wife are buried near by. Mr. Benson died away from home on one of his market trips. Ransom was a soldier in the war of 1812. He married a Miss Tanner. Moses died in Spartanburg County and his family removed to Alabama. He and Ransom were twins.

    before the war, and later, during said war, as captain of Co. B, 22nd S. C. V.

    BIOGRAPHY: Among the children of William and Exie (Wingo) Foster was Colonel Robert W. Foster ,

    who resided near Holly Spring, who was a man of more than ordinary intelligence and information, and

    who from 1848 to '50 was a representative from Spartanburg District in the State legislature, and was also for several years colonel of the 36th Regiment, S. C. M.

    BIOGRAPHY: Among the children of James Foster was Eleanor*, who married Andy Foster and

    removed to Georgia, where he died in 1897; Jane, who married Zachariah Wingo and removed to

    Georgia, settling on the Chattahoochee river, Forsyth County, where he died; Eliza, who married Albert

Casper, Elias Stephens, Hampton Posey and others. He connected himself with Bethlehem church early in life and has been a deacon of said church since 1866; is a useful man in his church and community both by precept and example. He has very often been a delegate from his church to the associations to which it has belonged, and is an earnest advocate and contributor to all the benevolent objects which come before it.

    BIOGRAPHY: Before the civil war between the states he was commissioned by the Governor of South Carolina a captain of the militia (May's old field), the company which he commanded being a part of the 36th Regiment, S. C. M. He served seven years as a commissioned officer, which, under the law, made him muster free, but at the outbreak of said war (or even a few months before) he volunteered in the Spartan Rifles under Captain Joseph Walker, which was one of the first companies to leave Spartanburg for the army. While serving in Virginia he was transferred (1862) to Co. D, Palmetto Sharpshooters, commanded by Captain A. H. Foster. In both of these companies he held the position of sergeant. He was in nearly all the battles in which his company was engaged. Was always at his post except when prevented by sickness, and was at the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse.

    BIOGRAPHY: After this he returned to his farm, where he has lived for sixty years or more. He has never aspired to public office, but, by reason of his fitness for the position, was nominated and elected by the Democrats of Spartanburg County as coroner for said county, which position he held for four years.

    BIOGRAPHY: By his marriage, referred to, he has three children; James Alexander, married Miss Emma, daughter of Virgil Rogers; John G. Landrum, single, and Mary Patience, single - a graduate of Limestone College.

    BIOGRAPHY: Richard Foster, a first cousin of Robert Foster, emigrated from Virginia to Spartanburg District and settled in the Bethlehem neighborhood about the time that Robert came. He was married four times. Among his children were Spencer B. Foster, who was a deacon and prominent member of Bethlehem church. He was also captain of a militia company before the civil war and was for a time the captain of the old Tyger band which belonged to the 36th Regiment, S. C. M., his favorite instrument being the clarinet, which the writer, in his boyhood, delighted to hear him play. He was the father of Richard and Martin Foster; the former losing an arm at the battle of Frazier's Farm, Virginia.

    William Foster, "Mill Creek Billy," first cousin to the first two, also from Amelia County, VA, lived on Fair

    Forest Creek. He had nine children, viz: Moses, who married Polly Hurt; Ransom, who married a

    daughter of Robert Foster in Greenville County (uncle of Captain Moses Foster); John; Jinsey, who

    married Jesse Wingo, father of Wm. J. Wingo, a well known merchant who died in Spartanburg in 1895

    or '96; Maiden who married Paschal Wingo, father of Rev. I. W. Wingo; Deliah, who married Burrell

    Wingo, father of Robert Wingo and grandfather of Hon. John O. Wingo, Greenville County, SC, and

    Stewart Wingo, Merchant at Spartanburg; Oney, who married Abner B. Foster, Annie, who married

    Isham Hart; and Malinda, who married Asa Cunningham.

    BIOGRAPHY: The entire families of the Foster connection in Spartanburg County have always been distinguished for their piety and high order of law abiding citizenship. No where have any people been found more patriotic, true and loyal to their county's best interest than the worthy sons which belonged to these families. No brighter example can be produced as an evidence of this fact that the case of Joseph Foster, son of Moses and Polly Hart Foster. in one of the battles in Virginia, during the civil war, he was shot through the head with a mini ball. The ball ranging below the brain entered near the eyeball and made its exit behind one ear. His recovery was one of the most remarkable occurrences in the history of surgery. From this dreadful wound he recovered in a few months and reentered the service in Virginia, and had not been there long when he was cut in two by a cannon ball in an engagement on Blackwater. He was a member of the company of Captain A. H. Foster, Palmetto Sharpshooters. James J. Foster, whose death we have already mentioned. was killed but a few days before the surrender at Appomattox. George Steading, brother-in-law of Captain Moses Foster, was killed below Richmond in front of Fort Harrison. There were several others of these families killed and considerable number wounded during the civil war. the last one that could shoulder a musket marched boldly to the front to defend his county's rights in her hour of greatest peril.

    BIOGRAPHY: *This was the first lady ever baptized by Rev. John G. Landrum. At this time he was pastor of Bethlehem (Baptist) Church. On the same occasion he baptized David Bray. Sr., and Malinda Foster, who afterward became Mrs. Asa Cunningham.

    WEBSITE: (4 Oct 2005) http://www.geocities.com/~pamreid/bib_rec.html by Pam Reid Foster-Barnett Bible Description This Bible has been in the possession of my family for a very long time. It belonged to my great-aunt Myrtle Foster Reid. She gave it to my mother and my mother passed it along to me. It was really this Bible that first got me interested in Genealogy. The Bible lists family records for William "Mill Creek Billy" Foster and his wife and children. It also lists records for Joseph Barnett, his wife, Lucy Wade and their children. There are also records for Micajah Barnett, son of Joseph and Lucy, his wife and their children.

    No one in my family knew who the Barnetts were. We had no knowledge of any connection with the Barnett family. So, I began a mission to find out who they were and why their records were in my Foster Family Bible. __It wasn’t very difficult to find Barnett ancestors of Joseph Barnett. However, the mystery wasn’t solved, as they had no information linking our two families. The information about the Barnetts that is contained in the Bible was very exciting to the Barnett researchers, since this was the first source they had found for actual birth dates of some of the earlier Barnetts. Of course, they were also anxious to figure out why records for the two families are contained within the same Bible. As of yet, we haven’t been able to do this. If any of you have information that would help us solve this mystery, please get in touch with me <mailto:pamreid@dc.jones.com> . We really want to how these families intertwine. __A little about the Bible: The bible is in very poor condition. It is actually falling apart and is coming unbound. Many of the pages are crumbling. __The bible appears to me to have been rebound at some point in time. This rebinding appears to have been a "homemade" job. The pieces of cardboard that form the front and back covers have scribbling on them and are covered with thin pieces of leather sewn into place with heavy thread. The old and new testaments appear to have come from two different bibles. As indicated from the copies of the old and new testament fly leaf pages, these two bibles have different publishers and different publication dates. Since the flyleaf page for the new testament is loose, it is possible that the page is from an entirely different bible. However, the styles of print and language used in the old and in the new testaments are completely different. This would indicate that two separate bibles were bound together. __Most of the Foster pages have come loose, but at least one is still attached to the Bible. Both of the Barnett pages are still attached. The only writing in the bible other than the family records recorded on the blank pages is the name "Malinda Foster" written on the top of one of the Genesis pages.

    Note for: John Herod Foster, 24 APR 1773 - 28 SEP 1850

    From Website at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~westxan/np63.htm#iin5281 __Many

    sources list his middle name as Harwood, however I have faith in the research of Ray Sasser, listed

    below giving the name as Herod. Some sources: LDS and Nancy Foster. On his father's death, as

    eldest son, he inherited the estate and remained there until his death. He was first married to Sela

    Lightfoot in 1795 and had one daughter, Nancy Harwood, before marrying Sally Braswell. _- _From

    Ray Sasser: "John Foster's middle name was "Herod," and he seems to have been known to family and

    friends simply by that name-"Herod"-and not by the name John, though official documents usually use "

    John." There are other people in Brunswick, not necessarily related to Braswells, with middle names of "

    Herod." Why it was popular, I don't know. If the name derives originally from a family named "Harwood,"

    this would not surprise me, but by the nineteenth century in Brunswick County, the given name was

    always "Harod."

    _Another interesting name in Brunswick County that modern researchers like to alter to fit modern

    ideas was the middle name of "Hutson"; people like to change it to "Hudson." That name also pops up in

    the Braswell family tree."

    James Foster was the only one of the sons that acquired a superior English education, and was for

    many years the best teacher of the section of country in which he lived; he was proverbial as the best

    arithmetician of the county. He studied the classics one year under Mr. Gilliland, in which time he read

    Virgil, Ovid and other authors; but he never taught them, as there was but little demand in those days for

    higher education. __James Foster taught school in Abbeville County, SC, on the Saluda River, for the

    period of three years, and at the breaking out of the war of 1812 he volunteered and went to Charleston,

    where he remained until the close of the war. After this he married Ann Turner in the year 1814 and

    settled on the waters of the Pacolet River, where he died in 1863, in the 77th year of his age. By his

    marriage with Ann Turner he raised a family of seven children, viz: Jane H., with of _____ Turner;

    Hannah M. wife of Rev. Bryant Bonner; Thomas Foster, William M. Foster (Major), James T. Foster,

    Rev. William M. Foster, one of the sons above mentioned (familiarly known as Major

    Bill), is a native of Spartanburg County. He was born July 28th, 1825. His father being

    an educated man and an excellent instructor in the schoolroom, he obtained a fair

    English and classical education, and was himself a successful teacher for a number of

    years. __Being a young man of bright promise and more than ordinary intelligence,

    his name was announced by his friends in 1858 as a candidate for the legislature to

    represent his native district. Being a captivating speaker and well posted on all the

    issues of the day, his popularity soon spread abroad and he was elected along with

    other popular candidates of that period. His colleagues were O. E. Edwards, B. F.

    Kilgore, J. W. Miller and James Farrow. He was again elected in 1860 and 1862,

    which terms covered almost the entire period of the civil war. __But in a few months

    after the outbreak of the civil war between the States he raised a company of young

    men for the Confederate service and was chosen as its captain. This company

    became Co. C, 9th Regt., S.C.V., commanded by Col. J. D. Blanding. At the

    reorganization of the South Carolina troops in Virginia, Captain Foster was elected

    major of the 5th Regt., S.C.V., which office he held unitl the end of the war. __After

    he had reached the age of fifty years an over-ruling Providence opened the eyes of

    his understanding. He began to work for the Master from the day of his conversion,

    and connected himself with the Baptist church at Cherokee Springs. Having

    impressions to preach he was soon afterwards ordained to the Gospel ministry, and

    has to the present time been a faithful worker in the Master's cause. __In the year

    1887 he was chosen to take charge of the People's High School at West's Springs,

    Union County, S.C., and later he was elected commissioner for said county, and

    served with efficiency for two years. __Returning to his native county he was again

    honored with a seat in the State legislature in 1890, and served in this capacity for one

    or two terms. He has now retired from public life, being well advanced in years, though

    well preserved. He is now devoting much of his time to writing and publishing, through

    the county press, poetry in verse, which in course of time will be collected and

    compiled and which will reflect additional credit to his excellent character and

    intellectual abilities which he has so well sustained throughout his entire life.

    Besides James Foster (son of Major Billie), whose character we have already reviewed, the other

    brothers to whom we have referred, viz.: Jones, Elijah, Moses, Garland and Calvin, also claim our

    attention. __Of these, Elijah removed to Tennessee. Calvin, a very promising young man, died in the

    city of Philadelphia, where he was attending medical lectures. Jones and Moses (called Pacolet Moses)

    resided on the Pacolets (rivers). William H. Foster on the South Pacolet, and Mrs. Polly Younger, at New

    Prospect, are the surviving children of Jones Foster. Among the children of Moses Foster were William

    H. Sr., John and Mrs. Hunter. Garland Foster resided on the plantation where his father settled, which is

    as stated, the present home of Mr. Ed Foster. He married Miss Moss, by whom he raised a large and

    respectable family of sons and daughters, all of whom have either died or emigrated to Texas, except Mr.

    Calvin Foster, near Campton, S.C., Mrs. J. W. Simpson of Pendleton, S. C., and Mrs. Mary Foster, who

    married James Foster. __These brothers were all good and substantial citizens, "whose word was

    their bond." Garland Foster was for a long number of years a deacon of Mount Zion church, and was

    BIOGRAPHY: Confederate Settlements in British Honduras. By Donald C. Simmons, Jr., McFarland &

    Company Inc., Publishers, 2001. Also family stories by Hope Johns Norman. Abstracted and

    summerized by Brenda Boyt.__David W. Foster left his home in Louisiana and took his family to

    Toledo, British Honduras in 1867. Why British Honduras and why then? It seems that British Honduras

    (now known as Belize) sympathized with the Confederacy during the Civil War and did extensive trade

    with them in military hardware and supplies to ports all along the Gulf Coast until May of 1863 when the

    U.S naval blockade stopped the flow. Southern refugees were arriving in British Honduras as early as

    1861, but in the final years of the war there was a great influx due to the increased suffering throughout

    the war-torn south. After the war, during Presidential Reconstruction, for a brief time it appeared that

    things in the south might not change much from the time before the war. That all changed soon after the

    Republicans won the congressional elections of 1866. The Republican Congress implemented "Radical

    Reconstruction" in the latter part of 1867 and throughout 1868. White Southerners who had no intention

    of being reconstructed saw it as the end of any hope for self-government, thus prompting the "era of

    group migration" to British Honduras and Brazil. Hope Johns Norman, great granddaughter of David W.

    Foster gave some family history on the subject; "Dr. David Walker Foster took his family (and perhaps

    some other residents?) to live in British Honduras. Things were in utter turmoil in south Louisiana.

    Louisiana was devastated. From the tales I heard as a child, one could not work unless you signed an

    oath of allegiance to the Union. It was called 'The Ironclad Oath'. DWF refused to sign it and left his

    practice and home." Another family story says that the Foster family left on a boat from Galveston,

    Texas. Many Southerners did sail from Texas and David and Melissa's daughter Hope, was born in

    Texas in 1865, but their son Ernest was born in Opelousas, Louisiana in 1866 which leads me to

    suspect that perhaps they went to Texas to get away from the war or to try to find passage to British

    Honduras from there, but they obviously went back to Louisiana and probably left for British Honduras

    from there. We may never know how the Foster family made their way to British Honduras for sure.

    Even though New Orleans was the main hub for leaving the states, it was common for vessels to be

    chartered all along the Gulf Coast. Sailing vessels were preferred by many over steamers because they

    were cheaper, but they were also smaller and slower. Some weren't supposed to carry passengers, so

    those wishing to leave sometimes were forced to either stow away or be picked up somewhere down

    river once the vessel cleared port. Needless to say, there wasn't a list of passengers in cases like these,

    so that may explain to some extent why the Foster family hasn't been found on any passenger lists so

    far.__According to "Confederate Settlements in British Honduras" David W. Foster was in British

    Honduras by July of 1867; "In a bold move to ensure successful settlement of the colony and deter

    further criticism, the lieutenant governor entered into a contractual agreement with James Putnam and

    four other Southerners. In an exchange for a large grant of Crown land the individuals would recruit

    Southerners to settle the colony. Under the terms of the contract, signed in July 1867, Putnam, along

    with David Walker Foster, William Abel Howard, Maunsel White Chapman, and Robert Lears Weir,

    agreed to introduce fifty planters and laborers along with their families into the colony within two years

    and at least two hundred other persons within five years. Putnam and his other associates were to settle

    immigrants on the lands given to them by the Crown or on other 'lands within the said district or region.'

    Failure to introduce the specified number of settlers as agreed under the terms of the contract would

    make the grant null and void (pg. 31)." This grant was known as the Icacos Grant.__In trying to

    encourage Southerners who were predominantly cotton planters to immigrate, British Hondurans

    promoted cotton as the crop of choice even though it had never been profitably produced there as

    sugarcane had. Despite that, David W. Foster wrote in an article about British Honduras that was

    published in the Livingston Journal in Alabama, June 8, 1867, that several individuals commented that it

    grew well and yielded a "superior quality" of cotton (pg. 65).__David W. Foster and his family settled in

    the interior in the Toledo Settlement. It was located between the Rio Grande and the Moho River and

    was the most successful of the Confederate settlements. At the beginning of 1868 temporary housing

    was erected on the coast while a survey was being completed on the selected site for the settlement

    four or five miles inland. By March of 1868, most of the surveying was finished and families began

    clearing the land and building houses. Housing was primitive as the buildings were essentially thatched

    huts. The settlers experimented with various crops during the first planting season. In "Statement

    Touching the Settlement of Toledo" in the Public Archives of Belize, David W. Foster wrote that

    sugarcane, corn, rice, yams, and plantains were planted by all of the families. Other crops tested

    included beans, peas, tomatoes, okra, cabbage, turnips, cucumbers, oranges, apples, coffee, and

    pineapples. The unfamiliar climate caused considerable frustration in their efforts to identify profitable

    agriculture (pg. 73-74). They soon discovered that sugarcane was the crop "par excellence" of the

    region. It could be planted at any time of the year and harvested at any time as well (pg. 75).__Some

    of the settlers hired laborers from Guatemala and Spanish Honduras in an effort to start up a large-scale

    production of sugarcane, but they soon discovered that the hiring system in place didn't allow the control

    of labor that they were accustomed to by the slave system. The laborers often fled to Guatemala to

    avoid punishment from colonial authorities for violating their contracts. Being in a remote settlement, the

    employers had no recourse because there wasn't a local magistrate to enforce the laws. From a copy of

    the British Honduras Almanac that was included in a January, 1869, dispatch to the U.S Consuls in

    Belize, an appeal from the settlers of Toledo made only three months after the settlement was

    established, requested that the lieutenant governor appoint a "board of police" for the welfare of the

    community. David W. Foster who had been in the colony for some time, was appointed justice of the

    peace for the Southern district only a short time later, and was well received by the residents of Toledo.

    (pg.77-78). It was also noted that he served as the Board of Health Representative from the Southern

    District of the colony (pg. 81).__Many hardships were endured by the settlers, and some found it more

    than they could bear. Rain and insects destroyed crops, and mosquitoes brought sickness. Hope Johns

    Norman also related a story that as a boy, her father remembered often seeing the letter that was written

    to David Foster from Queen Victoria thanking him for his service to the people during a yellow fever

    epidemic in British Honduras (and in later years was burned by David's daughter-in-law Emma, because

    she felt the family was sinfully prideful of that letter). Added to the many hardships and unfamiliar

    environment of British Honduras was homesickness for family and homeland. This caused a real toll on

    the Toledo Settlement during that first year and evidence suggests that as many as sixteen families left

    within that time. Of the original fourteen families to settle at Toledo, only four remained eighteen months

    later--the Pearce, Watrous, Foster and Dexter families--and they were finding the situation increasingly

    critical by the end of 1868 (pg. 76). In an official statement in 1869, local magistrate David W. Foster,

    reported that only twelve families had opened lands near Toledo (pg. 73). Economic hardships weren't

    the only reason for the decline of the settlement. The determination of the ex-Confederates to maintain

    the customs and traditions of the Old South isolated the community and created resentment towards

    them by the non-white population. Who can say if these reasons may have been a contributing factor to

    his decision, but we do know that David Foster moved his family back to Louisiana at some point

    between June, 1870 when his daughter Trust was born in Toledo, and June, 1873, when his daughter

    Grace was born in Ville Platte, Louisiana.

    MILITARY: Civil War Union Army Battle of Springfield

    Springfield

    Other Names: None

    Location: Greene County

    Campaign: Marmaduke’s First Expedition into Missouri (1862-63)

    Date(s): January 8, 1863

    Principal Commanders: Brig. Gen. Egbert B. Brown [US]; Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke [CS]

    Forces Engaged: Southwestern District of Missouri Troops (2,000) [US]; 4th Division, I Corps, Trans-

    Mississippi Department [CS]

    Estimated Casualties: 403 total (US 163; CS 240)

    Description: Brig. Gen. John S. Marmaduke’s expedition into Missouri reached Ozark, where it

    destroyed the Union post, and then approached Springfield on the morning of January 8, 1863.

    Springfield was an important Federal communications center and supply depot so the Rebels wished to

    destroy it. The Union army had constructed fortifications to defend the town. Their ranks, however, were

    depleted because Francis J. Herron’s two divisions had not yet returned from their victory at Prairie

    Grove on December 7. After receiving a report on January 7 of the Rebels’ approach, Brig. Gen. Egbert

    B. Brown set about preparing for the attack and rounding up additional troops. Around 10:00 am, the

    Confederates advanced in battle line to the attack. The day included desperate fighting with attacks and

    counterattacks until after dark, but the Federal troops held and the Rebels withdrew during the night.

    Brown had been wounded during the day. The Confederates appeared in force the next morning but

    retired without attacking. The Federal depot was successfully defended, and Union strength in the area

    continued.

    Result(s): Union victory, although the raid ultimately failed.

    The last daughter was born in Arkansas in 1859 just before the Civil War.

    The SLC Family History Center has a microfische with the Trobaugh Family history on it. Shows

    migration from Germany to Pennsylvania toTennessee. Mass migrations to Tenn came about 1780. A

    second Robt L. Foster appears in Tenn after my Robert left Tenn for Ky. His name appears in above

    Trobaugh history as the husband to Catherine but the dates of birth and marriage show it to be in error.

    My Robert L. should be the correct husband to Catharine if another reprint is ever made. (6-25-94) glf

    According to probate records, Eliza was "in Partm." on 10 March 1864. There is no

    mention of a child, so I believe that the child was either stillborn or died shortly after

    birth. With both parents being deathly ill at this time, it's not surprising if this event

    wasn't recorded.

    This child was born on the 10th of March. The father, John, died on the 13th of March

    and the mother, Eliza, died on the 17th of March, 1964. glf
