Josiah Foster married Mary Ann Curtis

Josiah Foster married Mary Ann Curtis in @ 1772. I have no idea where he was born, who his parents were, or where they were married. But Mary Ann Curtis' father, Zachariah Curtis (1719-1805)came to Bennington County, VT. Zachariah died in the Town(ship) of Dorset, Bennington County, VT, on May 14, 1805.
Josiah's name appears on various Curtis family records in Dorset, but no land records were found there for Josiah.
We also note with interest that Josiah reported the births of children born to him and "Marian" in the Town of Mancheser, Bennington County, VT: Deborah Foster b. Feb. 11, 1773 (probably a "late entry" for a CT birth), Leonard born Jan. 17, 1775 "in Manchester), Rosannah b. Sept.19, 1777; Marian born Feb. 15, 1783, & Ransom b. August 9, 1785, in Manchester.
It is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack, but I would greatly appreciate hearing from someone who can tell me more about this family. MaryLu in Minnesota
