Grandfather, Claude Foster, 1906-1982, Wetumpka, AL, Father, John Ellis Foster, b. 1927, Wetumpka, AL, d. 1999, Chicago, IL. The earliest Foster is my 2x great grandmother Sue Foster (1858-1921), Tuskegee, AL. Not sure if Foster is Sue's maiden name or married name, The first mention of her is as a servant on the Holdersby plantation in the 1880 census

Is there any Foster's from Canada in this group. Looking for information on Isaac Foster 1800-1880 Wicklow County, Ireland.

I am not from Canada, but I do have Foster links with people in Canada. My links and their links go back to northern Ireland and then to the Scottish border (both sides).

I am from Quebec, Canada. My ancestor John Foster came in the early 1800s from Scotland (some say England, but the our oral history says its is from Scotland).

I am researching Isaac Foster born about 1801 in County Wexford. He died 1837 and is buried in Carnew, Wicklow. His widow Margaret Roach and children came to Canada in 1849 from the Coollattin Estate.

This may not be an appropriate question for this group, but I hit a brick wall years ago and really need some help. I know for certain that my ggg-grandfather was Henry B. Foster and was born in PA in 1830 and died in Iowa in 1860. Now with DNA tests I show strong links to FostersForsters in Lancaster, Fayette and surrounding counties of PA in the 1700s. I am connected by DNA with many people to David Aaron Foster 1750-1817, and his father David Foster 1718-1762. Some of the DNA links to these two people are as high as 45 cm which tells me they are probably third cousins once or twice removed. David Aaron Foster had a son names Henry Foster 1797-1881. He married Magdalena Barricklow 1798-1840. They had a son name Henry Foster 1829-1860. I am positive this Henry is not my Henry (different wife and kids etc). However many of my strong Foster/Forster DNA links are to people who show this Henry as their third great grandfather. Also, I show strong DNA links to the Magdalena Barricklows family, again as high as 45 cm. This tells me that Henry and Magadelena are probably my 4rth great grandparents or 5th great aunt and uncle. Does it appear to DNA experts in the group that I am wrong about this? I have been stuck for years now and cannot make the link with other paperwork. The DNA evidence is strong, but the Henry Fosters are not the same people. Can anyone help? I hope I was clear! LOL

For those in Foster Group 7 who claim we descend from Sir Thomas Forster whose tomb is in St. Dunstan's, Hunsdon, who descended from Thomas Forster of Adderstone (Etherstone), does anyone have documentary evidence that links our Richard Foster, the immigrant to Virginia on the Safety in 1635, to these UK Forsters? I have not been able to locate any or to locate the source of this legend. I appreciate your help with documentation of Richard of Virginia to his presumed father in England.Thanks so much, Sara

Legend and hear say have Richard from the Safety to Va as a son of a Robert Foster ---this is an assumption but false as Richards mother a Thomas Foster who died and left Mirah Isham Richards mother a Widow who remarried a Bart Hoskins who Richard recognized as his step father . Hoskins paid for Richard , his mother and Richards Sibling transportation to Colonial Va . Thomas Foster was a member of the Fosters / Forsters of Hunsdon Hertfordshire England Descending

William (Bill) Foster - Do you know if any of the descendants of Sir Thomas Foster go to northern Ireland in the 1600s and then to Lancaster, PA in the early 1700s?

Hi, My father was adopted and was born in 1932 in Maryland. I don't have his OBC, but his birth record in the Maryland Archives that ties to his OBC shows a Robert James Foster as his father. I did a Y-DNA, 111 markers, on my father and his haplogroup is R-M269. Some people I've reached out to through Ancestry said that the Foster's came from Virginia and migrated into Maryland. I haven't been able to find any definitive information about my dad's father and I'm not sure if he is a Foster or if they put a fake name on the record. There is one Robert James Foster on the 1930 census, but the name is then Edward James Foster on the 1940 census. Are there any Fosters with this haplogroup from Maryland or Virginia? Thank you and have a great day!

Are any of the DNA Results known to be associated with Stephen Collins Foster (famous song writer in the 1800's)? I believe that it has been established that he descended from Alexander Foster (abt 1710 Ireland -1767). One of Alexander's sons, John, migrated to Wilson County Tennessee in the late 1700's. I believe that I may have descended from these Foster's. To date, there are no Foster matches for me in the Project (I'm in the unmatched results). I am trying to determine if that is due to the lack of someone submitting their DNA or if it is showing me that I'm not a "Y" descendant of this line.
