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.

Janet Foster Marshall
Reginald Foster
Hi Bill my name is Janet Foster Marshall. I'm a direct descendant of Reginald( b.abt.1595). What Im trying to figure out is how I get to Sir John of Northumberland. I know Reginald's father was Thomas and his father was Cuthbert but I'm not sure of anything after that. I was wondering if there was some information that you could pass along to me to help. Thanks so

James Foster Jr.
Hi Bill, on Elsie Foster's memorial where her children are listed,you have noted that James Foster Jr. is married to Anne Torrentine.
However on your Ancestry family page, she is noted as married to James M. Foster. Do you believe James Foster Jr. to be the same person as James M. Foster? I would very much like to find the James Foster who is father to William Denny. The guardianship papers prove it is not James M. Foster.
Do you think it is possible that we are dealing with 2 separate Torrentine women one named Anne and perhaps a sister named, Sarah. I have found no proof of this. the marriage license and Denny's death certificate just do not match up. So it remains a question.
Thank you for your thoughts and help, Judy Church

Kennedy "CAN" Foster Jr
CON was the name on Charlotte's death certificate so that's how I spelled it. Thanks for the additional info. Do you know where Kennedy is buried, I would like to link them?

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
