Hello, looking for any information on the family line (ancestors and decendents) of my Robert B. Foshee, b: Mar 1845 Edgefield, SC., he married a Margaret A. ? abt 1866 in South Carolina. Margaret A., was born July 1845 according to census records. Robert B. Foshee served in the Confederate Army in Co. B. 1st South Carolina Artillery in the Civil war and I have a journal notation from Sept. 1, 1863 where he was listed as "slightly" wounded and that he was Col. Rhett's orderly. I show him listed on the 1870 census as a farmer in Edgefield, SC; Gregg Twp.; Graniteville, again on the 1880 census as living Edgefield, SC; Shaws Twp. also listed as a farmer. As per The Augusta Chronicle Newspaper "List Of Voters" page 6, dated Nov 17, 1889 he was living in the 5th Ward of Augusta, Georgia. I found him on several "List of Voters" postings by the Augusta Chronicle Newspaper living in the 5th Ward of Augusta all the way through 1899. In the Augusta Chronicle an article listed under "widows" under Article entitled "PENSION LIST FOR RICHMOND COUNTY" on page 6 dated Dec 13, 1910, I show his widow, Margaret A. Foshee as being accepted to recieve his military pension.
I have their children listed as:
1. James David Foshee b: June 1867 in SC d: Oct 4, 1933 in Augusta, Ga., buried Westview Cemetery in Augusta.
2. Eugene Foshee b: 1869 SC d: Bef 1880 SC
3. Nettie O. Foshee b: 1873 SC d: Jan 5, 1946 Augusta, GA.
4. Mattie Talleulah "Lula" Foshee b: Oct. 15, 1875 Shaws Twsp, Edgefield Co., SC d: 28 Oct 1960 Augusta, Ga. burial Westview Cemetery, Augusta, Ga. (My grandmother)
5. Sallie Foshee b: 1878 SC d: bef. 1933.
Any information on this family greatly appreciated, I would like to find Robert B's ancestors and siblings.
Thanks in advance,
Brenda Mills Drews
