Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & raised in the Smokie Mountains & foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina & South Carolina.
I'm one of the Original Participants @ the FosterFTDNA project with tested DNA markers up to 67.
I use Find A Grave as a research tool to connect family members of Families related to my Foster Surname and related Surnames. Foster , Minnick, Markland, Davis, Combs, Markland, Myers, Rumbley Zimmerman, Orrell, Tucker . Also the surnames from my mothers side of the Family Braswell, Ratcliff / Ratliff, Henson / Hinson, Diggs / Degge, Myers, Pistol / Travis, Boyette / Boyet,Keen, others . My wifes family surnames Rice , Franklin, Wallin, Shelton, Tweed, Sevier , Chandler and others.
I believe in linking family members with the tools given to us in the Edit Tab Section. Many of my memorials are created by finding the burial Locations listed on Death Certificates.

RE: Photo Nelson Ratliff's memorial
Glad to do it. Sorry I wasn't able to find his son, Jr. Do you think he's buried in the same cemetery?

Debi pls add this information to the Find a Grave memorial of Dora Foster ( Row # 6 ) Her siblings are buried in row 7 by the way.

I have edited those over which I have control but I do not control them all. I did however post some notes on the memorials so that others might find the information. You might wish to contact the other managers to have them edit their respective memorials. Have a great day and thanks for the info!!! :)

Hope you can help...

I am not sure how closely you are related, but I have been trying to find Walter Fleet Foster. I am not sure if he is living or deceased. His brother is Roland Lewis Foster lll, and his father was Capt. Roland Foster. I last saw Fleet in 1994, in Urbanna, Virginia. I would love to know how he's doing and if he is healthy and happy. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks so much and God bless.
