Thank you for replying. I'm quite agreeable to having my book listed on your web site.
Nethercott, Barbara Balch, ELLA'S ANCESTORS AND KIN: FOSTER - BENNETT GARLAND - FLEMING,
London, ON 1997, ISBN 0-9691843-1-X.
The book covers the ancestors and descendants of the four grandparents of
Ella Foster Balch; Foster and Garland having the most coverage. And I have a few
copies left. Don't know if you want all this info, however, you use whatever you

Hi Al et al,
Just a bit to add in the Foster family - my ancestor, Anna Foster (b.1801),
married Abram Olmstead, and the given name Foster is sprinkled amongst their
descendants, including the Nelson family of Russell Co.
My list of siblings for Anna is as follows:
Archibald Foster - (witnessed sister Jane's wedding to John McAmmond in 1834
- likely named after uncle Archibald Scott ?)
Eliza Foster -
Anna Foster - b.1801 (m. Abram Olmstead)
William Foster - b. 1806 (brother of Archibald Foster acc. "History of the Ottawa Valley" p.68)
Jane Foster - b.1811 (m. John McAmmond)
I didn't know about Robert Sr. b. 1803, but am assuming that he belongs with
this family as a sibling of William, according to Robert Sample?

I found an article tiled : Robert FOSTER and Mary BOOTH also William FOSTER
from County Cavan on http://www.bytown.net/foster.htm
Just a little note to tell you that my husbands great grandparent are
Sarah Ann Foster and Samuel McGregor, Sarah is the daughter of Robert Foster
and Mary Booth and Sister of Robert Foster , who married Margaret Keys. I am
willing to share what little info i have and the decsendants of Sarah and
June 19, 2012:
I have William Foster 1806 - 1871 m (1) Ellen Gordon Nov 30 1830, with 9 children;
Charlotte; Isobel; Mary Jane ( b Aug 25 1831 m William McClinton); John 1832; Ann 1834; Archibald 1836;
Samuel 1838; Mary 1840 and Ellen 1842.
He then married Sarah Pearson Jan 5 1844 and they had Alpha 1844; William 1846; and Benjamin 1949
Most of my info was handed down, so I cannot claim ownership of it. However I am a descendant of the McAmmond family.
My grandmother was Rosanna McAmmond, born July 1,1868 in Nepean, and daughter of Sarah Irwin and Abraham Olmstead McAmmond.
Note: Mr. Ron Milford passed away in 2004. He had done a tremendous amount
of genealogy work and I believe that his family, who are carrying on his work,
can be reached through his e-mail address (included above). ... Al
