The unmarried dau. of Lieut. James Foster and Anna Lane, b. of record Mar. 30, 1683 at Dorchester, Mass. She d. Feb 15, 1700/01, ∆ 18.

The date of her death on her gravestone reflects the old pre-1752 Julian calendar date system, now written as Feb. 15, 1700/01 in the modern calendar. Conversion of the date conforms to "in Ye 18th Year of her Age," meaning when she d. she was 17 years old and ∆tatis (i.e., ∆, "Aged," in the XX year of her Age) 18.
