CHARLES M FOSTER

Contributed by Linda Pattschull on 6 Apr 2001

This picture was in my Grandmother's things. Her name was Emma McKerian Foster b. 9-29-1892.  She had only one sister Florence Puryear Foster b. 1896.  Their father was Charles M. Foster and mother Lourina Puryear Foster. Emma was born in Nashville, Tenn. 

 

I have books that belonged to Dr. Charles M. Foster that had his name in them and said "My fathers books 1892 Florence Alb."  I have been trying for some time to connect Charles to George W. Foster.  Any help would be appreciated.
