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.

Thomas Foster
I was wondering if I could use the pictures of Thomas' final resting place in my family research? He is a great grandfather of mine and they would be great to have in my records. I tried to get in touch with the person who took them, but was unable. I will give you the credit (I always like to ask for permission).

Thank you,

William Davis/Kean-Meggs Cemetery
Thanks for the info. I will get Findagrave to merge the 2 cemeteries with an AKA in the title. The Stanly County Genealogical Society surveyed the Kean-Meggs Cemetery. One of the surveyors is the Stanly County Historical Librarian. Once they are merged, I will delete my 2 entries or get them merged as I am finding & adding information.

Wonder where the name of William Davis came from. Alsey/Ailsey Kean/Keen is listed in the 1850 Census as a male and in the 1860 Census as a female.

RE: Your Foster family line
Changes done. FYI: Foster Reunion is August 1, 2015 at 12:00 at Unity Baptist Church in room up the ramp on left side of church across from the cemetery. Come if possible.

My grandmother was (John) Crager Foster's daughter, Vestula Foster. My daddy goes, as well as me and my husband.

Sad to say each year we are losing family members. But right now, we have the reunion on the first Saturday every year. Hope you can make it.
