Hi Jan, My name is Liz Moore and I have researched this family since the 1990's. This is because of the connection to the Myrick's.
The John W. Foust that you are refering to. I have a being born October 1838, but I don't think anyone knows the correct date of birth. His death certificate says he was 91 when he died. The informant of the death cerificate info, was Spinks Richardson.Death Cerificate says his mother was Mary Stutts and that Father was Unknown. (Unknown to Spinks Richardson) Born North Carolina Burial Lone Cedar Cemtery. (Which is correct)
John W. Foust married 1st. Terrie Matilda Smith They had two children. 1. Mary Hester Foust born April 20, 1861 2. Aaron Thomas Foust born July 1863.
Terrie Marilda Smith Foust died in 1864.
He married 2nd Mary E. Myrick daughter of James Calvin Myrick. John and Mary had 4 children 1. Lou Allen Foust born Jan 1874 2. Lucy Foust born 1875 3. Adolphus Foust born May 1878 4. John C. Foust born Feb 1880. Mary E. Myrick Foust died after the birth of John C. Foust.
On September 12, 1881 John married Anniue Curtis and they had 4 children 1. Mary H. Foust born June 1883 2. Celia Foust born 1884 3. Katie Foust born July 1888 4. Madge Foust born 1890
