Re: Silence Foster m. John Clapp abt 1700 MA
I've been doing research on the Fosters in south central Mass and wondered if you could help with info on:
Joseph Bradford Foster (b. Warren MA c. 1823, m. 5 APR 1848 "age 25" to Mary Eliza Puffer of Monson, MA). Joseph's parents were Abigail Bradford, sister of (7) Otis (6 Perez, 5 Perez, 4 Perez, 3 Samuel, 2 William, 1 William) and Sherlock Foster (b. 1786, m.(2 for him, 1 for her)int. 18 SEP 1819 Warren MA, d. 25 FEB 1836 Warren, MA).
Also on (4) Michael Foster (3 John, 2 John 1 John), 2nd husband of Mary (Jackson) Bradford. All I know is that Michael was from Wrentham, MA, had 12 siblings, and was married to Mary on 24 OCT 1764. Mary's (b. 15 MAY 1732 in Wrentham and buried in the Holland MA cemetery next to her daughter Mary "Polly" (Bradford) (Jacobs) Houghton) first husband was (5) Perez Bradford. I want to know if Michael is related to Sherlock and Joseph above and, if so, how.
Since I am named after Joseph's daughter Mary Ann, it's very personal.
Thanks, Anne Foster (Harris) Bacher
