Can anyone tell me what happened to John R. Foster who was born in Lawrence Co., IN, 1847/48, the son of Fountain F. Foster and Nancy (Carlton) Foster? I think there might be a connection to my Fosters.

My g-g-grandfather was John Foster who was married to Eliza Jane Troxell (b. 1847). They were married in Grant County, IN, in 1865. Children: Cedion (a male - not sure of spelling), David Elwood, Ruele, Lola Mae, and Fountain.

Fountain is not a common name. Could there be a connection to the Fountain F. Foster from Lawrence Co.?

Also, was Fountain F. Foster born in NC or KY? I've seen it both ways.

Would love to hear from anyone with information. Feel free to e-mail.

Thanks, Phyllis
