FOSTER, HENDRICKSON posted by Doug Showalter on Monday, November 8, 1999

I am seeking information on John J. FOSTER [b: 1793/98/99, MD] who married Fanny HENDRICKSON in 1822 in Harrison Co., OH. She was a sister of Solomon HENDRICKSON of Fox Twp in Columbiana Co. John J. FOSTER and his brother, Frederick Levi FOSTER [b: abt 1792, MD] appear in the 1830 census of Columbiana Co. in Washington Twp, along with "Widow" FOSTER. Siblings [likely] William FOSTER, Daniel FOSTER, and Aaron FOSTER may have come to OH with them from Harford Co., MD. John and Frederick bought land in what became Carroll Co., OH, beginning 1825. By the mid1830's these brothers left OH, and finally settled in McDonough Co., IL. I have more information on these families on my genealogical web site, whose URL is listed below. I appreciate any help. Thanks.

OADES, PARKS posted by Maynard Oss on Thursday, November 11, 1999

Rebecca William(s) PARKS b. Apr 6, 1832, unknown site, d. Oct 1, 1908, Clay County, Minnesota. From research I have determined by mor-mor-mor lived in Harrison County for a period of time prior to moving to New Orleans. In New Orleans she met my mor-mor-far [Francis Thomas OADES, Jr.] and they were married ca. 1853. In the 1881 Canadian Census for Ontario she lists herself as 'Welsh'. In one letter from my aunt, she states Rebecca had the middle name of William(s) because her father's name was William(s) Parks.
