Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in New York City, I grew up in New Jersey where I still reside. I started researching my family in the early 1980s after my two daughters were born. Between my family and my wife's family, I have information on more than 80 surnames. Since many of my family lines have ended in brick walls, I enjoy helping others by visiting cemeteries and posting photos on this website. The photo is of the gravesite of my Foster ancestors buried in Waitsfield, Vt.

RE: Foster - Derby Center Vermont
Hi Steve,
I am not sure who has records for Derby Center. Please note that I have not fully surveyed the total cemetery. It could be that Pattie was buried in another plot and I have not found it yet. Or perhaps, since she seems to be the last to pass in the family, that her inscription was never put on the stone*. I also noticed that many stones in the cemetery are overgrown. When I get a chance, I will go back and continue searching.

Foster - Derby Center Vermont
Please see the Find A Grave memorial for Henry E and Persis in Derby Center, VT. You requested a photo of Pattie Foster, but I have not found her - yet. I have added Hiram, Kingsbury, and infant children.
Thanks, Rebecca
