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.

Mary S. White
You might also want to link Onia with his 2nd wife, Mary Sharp Foster White (33300492). You have him linked with his first wife, Marian F. White and their daughter, Lena -- as well as his and Mary's daughter, Frances Debnam White Anderton. Marian, his first wife, died shortly after giving birth to Lena and Lena died soon after her mother. So sad!
Thanks again -- Gayle Weiss

Onia White
Please link Onia A. White (33300605) with his father, Cyrus C. White, Find a Grave # 47411441
and his mother, Paulina Perkins White, #47411489 who are buried in the Perkins Spring family burying ground, Bohannon, Mathews County, VA -- just down the road from Providence Cemetery where Onia is buried. This is where Paulina was raised - at the house at Perkins Spring -- right next to the Bohannon Post Office.
Thanks -- Gayle Weiss

The matter of correct location of burial site has surfaced again (POCAHONTUS FOSTER STONE w/o D B). Hopefully, you will recall our previous venture down that path of investigation.

As I invested considerable time in this beloved family, I would appreciate your adding the family photo to the correct memorial 117708403 located
and photographed by yours truly at Pleasant Grove, Hydro, Smiths Grove, Warren County, Ky.

Your professionalism is always appreciated.

Foster Cemetery, Mocksville, NC
I went down Cornatzer Road, Mocksville, NC to get the photos for you but could not find a family cemetery. You might want to see who lives in the houses next to the 1058 Cornatzer address and ask them personally if they know where the gravestones are located. It looks like it's someones personal home there. If they cannot photograph for you and would permit me to go over, I would be happy to do all the gravestones that are there. You can PM me at,-mocksville,-nc_rb/#/homedetails/1058-Cornatzer-Rd-Mocksville-NC-27028/68709722_zpid/

There is a Foster Cemetery on NC 39 between Ingleside and Epsom.

RE: Other Foster line
I believe you are correct. The lines split before 1635 when my immigrant came to Virginia. I find it interesting that both those lines ended up in Franklin County and only a few miles apart.

RE: Foster Family Cemetery
There are a couple of different Foster lines in Franklin County. Wade Hampton Foster is not one of mine. However, I did find this:
