SURNAMES: FOSTER
We have traced my husband's family to the early 1800's in Jackson Co., in Washington Township or Franklin Township. On one of the census records a "Job Foster-Revolutionary War Pensioner" caught our attention. He was listed before Samuel Foster whom we assume is his son...but don't know for sure. We are trying to find out more about him--his children, wife, date of birth and death. We found his application for a pension in the National Archives. He served in the 9th Virginia Line under Col. Campbell. The Pension Application was filed in Scioto Co., Ohio in 1818. In 1902 a decendent wrote the Archives asking for info about Job Foster. The letter indicates he died in Jackson Co. in the 1840's. Any information about this man would be wonderful! Linda Foster, 3220 Green Meadows Dr., Indian Head, MD 20640.
