Foster Family

My ggreat grandparents were James Thomas Foster (Sept. 1, 1870-Nov.29, 1927) and Isabelle Singleton Athey (Moore).
They were both born in Collin Co. Texas and were married between June 1900-Dec. 1901. They had 12 children (3 died as infants or small children). They were Henery Moore (by Isabell's 1st marriage), Mary(died at age 1), Evie, Art, Jody, Wesley, Marion(died as an infant), George, Ivie (died as infant or small child), Willie Belle, Bessie, and Harvey.

Shortly after ther marriage they moved to Simms, Bowie Co., Texas then to Collin Co. in 1908, Midland Co. in 1910, back to Bowie Co. in 1911, then finally settled on Foard County aroun 1920.

James worked at one point on the Johnson Ranch for Speck and Duff Vance. Isabell deliverd babies all around the country side.

If anyone has any information on this family I would really appriciate it.

Their daughter, Willie Belle, was my great grandmother.
