Dear Ms. Matheny,
Found your message on NM counties site. Our family has ancestors FOSTER of Roosevelt Co., NM.
My husband's grandfather, Gabe Arling FOSTER son of John Franklin FOSTER and Amanda Emmaline CLARK from TX/OK. This branch of the Foster family came to NM about 1910. Gabe was the fourth son of Grandpa and Grandma FOSTER. They had 10 children, only one being a girl. All of this family is deceased. Some are buried at Portales Cemetery, Portales, NM.
John Foster's parents were lived in Wise Co. TX until death. This FOSTER line originally hailed from Wilson Co., TN. We have some records on this family that date back past 1730 in Lancaster Co., PA.
Do you know who William S. FOSTER's parents were? It could have been a brother of John Franklin or a cousin. Would be interested in corresponding with you and comparing notes.
Please e-mail Larry & Dixie Loy at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get started. ;-D
