I have been in contact with , one of my distant cousins this last week trying to find information on the line of my GG Grandmother Margaret Foster Funkhouser who married Abraham Brodbeck Funkhouser in 1824, Green Co., IL.
She has given me information that Margaret's Parents were: James Foster b. 1775 Allegheny Co., PA. and
Barbary Lawrence (Americanized form of Lorenz) b.1777 Frederick Co.,VA. They both died in Dearborn Co., IN. Burial place unknown .They had issue of nine children: Margaret b. 1799, Elizabeth, Lowry b. 1802,
Isaac, James Jesse, David, John, Nancy b. 1814, and Anne. This has been verified.(Probate file in Dearborn IN.)
Some researchers have the father of James Foster (1775) as George Foster born about 1756 in Pennsylvania or Maryland and died about 1800. James' mother is said to be Nancy Agnes Lowrey (Lowry) born about 1756 in Pennsylvania or Maryland and died about 1820. None of this has been confirmed and both burials are unknown.
And last George Foster (1756) is reported to be the son of James Foster and Elizabeth Espy. That is all she had on this line but she is working on verifying it.. Do you have anything you can add to this information? ANYTHING might just be the clue we need. Nancy
Later I received this e-mail from another cousin.....
James Foster's father is Jessey Foster (not George) and his mother is Nancy Lowry. I have documentation of this. It comes from the bible of Jacob Foster, he is the oldest son of Thomas Foster/brother of James Foster. Also, I have just recently verified that James and Thomas have another brother named John H. Foster.
Does anyone have additional information? Nancy
