FOSTER - I have a puzzle and nothing but a dead end on one of my lines. There were at least seven brothers and sisters in the SW Mississippi area during the late 1800s.

These Foster siblings were: Fanny Foster m. Monroe MORGAN, George Foster, Joseph Foster, Nan Foster m. _____________BULLOCK, Samuel Foster, Vick Foster married Frank BUTTON, Delton W. Foster (1860-1937) m. Lelia M. EADY. Who were the parents of these children? Where did they come from? Where did they go?
Delton W. Foster and Lelia Eady Foster are my ggrandparents. There is a family rumor that perhaps Delton was born in Winnsboro, Louisiana, and that he and Lelia married in Franklin County, Mississippi. Proof? I have none. Delton and Lelia were the parents of: Maude Foster m. Clifford TILLMAN, Lula Foster m. Alex DAVIS, Otis Foster m. Ophelia LOFTON, William Foster, Addie Foster m. John SUMRALL, Albert Foster m. __________ MOORE, Lonnie Foster m. Rhetha ___________. Some of the children of Delton and Lelia can be found in Lincoln and Lawrence County in the early part of the 1900s.
This is all that I know about this Foster family. Please if you have any information to help me find out more, E-mail me at WYL244@telapex.com.
