Jonathan Foye-Barrington, Strafford, NH

Thought it was time for me to list some of my Foye family members starting with my great-great grandfather.

(1)Jonathan Foye b. circa 1800, Barrington, Strafford, NH m. Dec 1820, Strafford, NH, Susan Stokes b. circa 1800, NH

(2)Jonathan and Susan's son:
Benjamin Stokes Foye (my great-grandfather)b. 10 Jan 1826 Dover, Strafford, NH, d. 14 Jan 1902, Barton, Allegany, MD, m. 25 Apr 1851, Lisbon, Maine Eunice Adeline Jones b.27 Jun 1833, Standish, Cumberland, Maine d. Nov1902-Mar1903,<Barton, Allegany, MD>.

The children of Benjamin and Eunice:
(1) LeRoy Foye b. circa 1859, Savage, WV
(2) Leander Ellsworth Foye b. circa 1861, WV
m. Mary Ann Bradley
(3) Edward Insley Foye(my grandfather)
b. 19 Nov 1868, Barton, Allegany, MD,
d. 23 May 1955, Smithfield, Fayette, PA,
m. (1) Annie Isabel George b. 25 Jun 1871, Barton, Allegany, MD, d. 7 Mar 1945, Smithfield, Fayette, PA and m. (2)16 Aug 1950, Oakland, Garrett, MD Edith A. Pringle b. circa 1877
(4)Benjamin Frank Foye
(5)Blanche Foye b. 15 Feb 1878 d. 12 Mar 1889.

I have put together a large book of pictures (many 8 x 10s) of these family members and their children. I have many of the names of the children of those listed above. Too much to type right now. If you are interested in anyone listed, just ask. I will do what I can to share with you.

I sent a book to Lonaconing, MD (it is about 2-3 inches wide) of many pictures and letters by my great-grandfather where they are going to be on display in their new library. Some of the letters go back to the Civil War. The book includes pictures of their homes also.

A point of contact there is Mr. James R. Klipstein, II, 310 Part Street, Cumberland, MD (301) 724-3275 (Georges Creek Promotional Council-Historial items for new public library at Lonaconing, MD. The letters mention many people in that area. You can tell him you are interested in the submission by Peggy Brooks. You can ask when it will be on display. It is too thick and expensive to copy.

Some of the letters were written by family members from Medford, Mass, St Joseph Missouri, Barton, MD, Smithfield, PA, Garrett, PA, Piedmont, WV. It includes Quit Claim Deeds of Benjamin Foye of Lawrence, Essex, MA (1848) There is a letter from a Frank L. Randlett of the U.S.S. New Ironsides in the Charleston Harbor. He has written Benjamin Foye as Uncle. It may be that Frank's mother was Benjamin's sister but I don't have the name of a sister at this point.

Hope this helps someone out there.
