This may be the Foster family in 1910:

This may be a marriage record for Henry:

Maine Marriage Records, 1705-1922 about Henry Foster

Spouse: Bertha M Clark, age 22, b. Charlotte

Marriage Place: Guilford
Registration Place: Sangerville, Piscataquis
Father: Robert Foster of Sangerville, b. VT
Mother: Martha Roster, b. Albert Co., NB
Spouse Father:        Edward A Clark, b. Charlotte
Spouse Mother:        Rosalinda G Brown, deceased

This marriages matches fairly well with Alice May Foster's marriage.

And also with this marriage:

Maine Marriage Records, 1705-1922 about Andrew H Foster
Name:        Andrew H Foster, age 21, Woodsman, b. 1889 St-Johns, NB
Spouse: Nettie Ingraham, divorced, age 34, b. Palermo, Me.
Marriage Date:        22 Aug 1910
Marriage Place: Dover
Registration Place: Dover, Piscataquis
Gender: Male
Father: Robert Foster of Sangerville, Me., Woodsman, b. Alma, NB
Mother: Martha Rostin, b. Alma, NB
Spouse Father:        John Balcom, b. Branch Mills
Spouse Mother: Unknown

Alma is in Albert County, New Brunswick, so that matches. I'm not exactly sure how the Bennett name relates to this family, but there is a public tree on ancestry.com that has more info on this family. Hope this helps. Annie
