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.
Looking to answer The Question "Who is buried in those unmarked Plots ?

Foster Family Cemetery
Any ideas why several assumed burials in the Foster Family Cemetery cannot be found? Many markers are old and cannot be read but there were more recent Death Certificates showing burials in this cemetery and there should be tombstones there which have not been found. It seems family members decided to have the burials elsewhere due to this old cemetery being so remote and not cared for.

D F Foster

I received your proposed change in his name on his memorial.

Many errors are occurring on memorials due to inaccurate "Edits." Please provide a verifiable primary source (such as a book, will, obituary, birth/marriage/death certificate, or family Bible record) for any changes/links on these memorials.

Thanks for your help!

Glendon Monroe Foster
Thank you for sending me the names of the parents of Glendon Monroe Foster, Memorial # 116687064. The names I have on the memorial are the names that were listed on the death certificate (as transcribed by FamilySearch). I have added a notation in the memorial with the information you gave me for the names of his parents. If you know where the parents are buried, please send me the information and I will link Glendon to his parents. Thanks!

Thomas L. Foster
Hi Bill, I think this is a duplicate for Thomas Foster #141369803. She does not have his wife's name. But has some good pictures. Maybe the two sites need to be combined. Just though you would want to check it out. Thanks Judy
