Rodney, my Fousts settled between Bethel Methodist Church and Snow Camp (from what I've been told). They are burried in Old Stoner's Cemetary (close to Southern High School) and in the Bethel Cemetary. I would bet their descendants spread out into Chatham and Randolf Counties since it's not all that far anyway. They were part of a large German community that settled in Alamance County. Their names got Americanized (Mohn became Moon) and (Albrecht became Albright). This sort of thing.


Though born and raised around Snow Camp, my Grandfather William Fletcher Foust moved to Graham to work and raise his family. A trait of my Fousts was that once they put down roots, they stayed where they were. Must have been a German thing.
