Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & raised in the Smokie Mountains & foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina & South Carolina. My Ancestors are the Pioneers who settled the Carolinas: North Carolina Counties such as Anson, Caswell, Davie, Davidson, Rowan, Forsyth, Iredell, Surry. First Immigrating to Colonial Maryland,Pennsylvania & Virginia. My Fosters Immigrated in 1635 to Colonial VA from Hunsdon Hertfordshire England.
*****My Genealogy research started with my Mother Sarah Braswell Foster's Parents families of Braswell & Ratliff in the North Carolina County of Anson where I was taken to family reunions as a child and visited family cemetaries in Anson County North Carolina. My Grandmother Susan Elizabeth Ratliff Braswell could go on for hours about family history.I was able to learn related families such as Degge/Diggs, Hinson/Henson, Jernigan, Dunn, Gulledge, Boyets, Keen, Pistole,and Travis.
*****Later I developed an interest in family tree research & I was able to research my Father William L. Foster's Parents families of Foster and Minnick ,Davis, Combs, Orrell, Markland, Zimmerman, Tucker, Rumbley and others who settled the North Carolina Forks of the Yadkin River at OLD Winston Salem-Clemmons in FORSYTH COUNTY and ajoining OLD ROWAN (NOW DAVIE AND DAVIDSON COUNTIES NC)after moving in from Colonial Md, Va & Pa then on to Ky, Tenn, Mo, Ind & Tex.

Foster transfers
I believe family should be with family so I've transferred your Foster family into your care. If I missed any please let me know. Thanks.

You are correct - Martha & Margaret were the twins of Francis Marion 'Frank' Boyett and Margaret S (Maggie) Shankle. Pam

RE: Hezekiah & Alsey Emeline Franklin
It has to be my relative than..... I am so excited I came across this information. Do you know if Alsey is buried in missouri. A lot of them seem to be in Dover. However I can find her anywhere. Thanks again for the info.

I would say the stone is in the right place with the grave, and someone put the wrong cemetery of the D.C.
