   Name: Samuel Foster
   Born: c1784
  Place: prob Abbeville, SC
   Died: 13 Aug 1845120 
  Place: Warren Co., IL
 Buried: 
  Place: Cedar Creek Cemetery120 

Samuel's gravesite includes a War of 1812 marker.[120]

I'm not convinced that Samuel Foster's father was the often-cited James Couples Foster. I simply haven't seen strong evidence of it. There is a document159 that has been in circulation for decades which purports to have been originally written in 1861 by James's son Alexander Foster and later revised (1915-1916) by his son, Robert Andrew Foster. It does mention Samuel's family. The typewritten copy I have includes handwritten corrections. The authenticity of this record is, in my mind, questionable.

Nevertheless, there is no dispute that Samuel's son, John A Foster, was born in Abbeville District, SC in 1818 and that they were closely related to James Couples Foster, as becomes evident when looking at the early census records (below). James C Foster is said to have been born in Ireland in 1753. He was the son of another James Foster.

Samuel was married at least three times. The tombstone at the grave of his last known child, Samuel Hamilton Foster, states that his parents were Samuel and Nancy Foster. We cannot know, however, if Nancy was the mother of all Samuel's children. He did marry twice more in his later years in Warren county, Illinois, having no children with either wife: Margaret Lusk on 4 Oct 1839 (she died two years later) and Mrs Eleanor (Struthers) Pollock on 17 April 1849 only four months before he died.

The early Fosters of Abbeville District, South Carolina appear to have been members of the Lower Long Cane Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church.


Jane Foster 1809-1896 She married John Campbell McCrery in 1829, Abbeville Dist, SC. Find A Grave Memorial# 73919132.
Margaret B Foster 1811-1886 I've seen her referred to as "Belle" so I suspect that was her middle name. She married Hamilton Hill in Abbeville Dist and secondly to Thomas Arthurs, 1845, Warren county IL.
Mary C Foster c1813- She married Landy G Shoemaker, prob in SC. He died there c1845. Mary died before 1878.
James Foster c1814-1868 Married first to Susan Giles 1840 Warren county IL and second to Mary McMillen 1867, Warren co.
William A Foster 1815-1855 Married Jane McDill. He died in Henderson co IL, 1855.
John A Foster 1818-1893 See the webpage for him.
Martha L Foster -1849 She married in Warren co to Jonathan Mulnix 1839 and died there in 1849.
Samuel Hamilton Foster 1827-1877 Appears to have been called Hamilton. See below for more information.

Samuel and his family arrived in Warren county, Illinois on 18 May 1837 after 8 weeks travel.157

Will of Samuel Foster, 1845

I've had a copy of this in my files for 20 years or more. Finally (in 2007), I've taken the time to transcribe it. Samuel's gravestone says that he was 61 years old at death. That puts his birth rather squarely in 1784.

I Samuel Foster of the County of Warren in the State of Illinois do make and publishe this my last will and tistament [sic] in manner and form following
that is to say
first it is my will that my funeral expenses and all just debts be fully paid
second I give devise and bequeth to my beloved wife Eleanor Foster all the property that she brought with her and all she has not brought that belongs to her.
third I give and devise to my son John Foster the East half of my land both timber and Prairie to his heirs and assigns forever and the half of my other property after my debts is all paid.
fourth I give and devise to my son Samuel H. Foster the West half of my land both timber and prairie his life time; and at his death I allow it to be divided among the rest of my children also I allow him the the half of my personal property after my debts is paid. If Hamilton lives with John I allow John the use of Hamiltons land for helping him
and lastly I hereby constitute and appoint John C McCrery and James Foster to be the Executors for this my last will and testament revoking and anulling all former wills by me made and ratifying and conforming this and no other to be my last will and testament
In testimony [sic] whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 11th day of August 1845
             Samuel Foster

Signed published and declared by the
above named Smauel Foster as and for
his last will and testament in
presence of all who at his request
have signed as witnesses to the same

I had puzzled over why Samuel would assume that his son, Samuel Hamilton Foster, might want to live with his brother despite being given half of his father's real property. And it was curious that Samuel assumed that "Hamilton" would have no heirs to pass the property on to, and that the land would automatically revert to John. Harriett Reynolds, who I had opportunity to meet later in the year, provided the answer in her February 1988 letter to me.

[Samuel Hamilton Foster] was a dwarf, a carpenter and tailor. Mainly a tailor. He always lived with John or my grandmother Margaret B. Arthurs. He's living with the Arthurs on the 1860 census.

We know now, of course, that dwarfism does not, in and of itself, prevent someone from having a family. The mindset of the time is evident in Samuel's will.

Census Readings

The are four Samuels on the 1810 census. The closest match, I believe, is on page 50. There are many more Fosters than I've listed here.

I read the entries on page 48 as follows. It's worth noting that they're cited one after the other. Might James and Samuel have been brothers? Samuel did have two sons, James (1815) and John (1818) and three known daughters, Jane (1809), Margaret (1811) and Mary (c1813), by that time. His future son-in-law, Hamilton Hill, and his father, Benjamin Hill, are also on the same page.

The following are the census entries for the name Foster in Abbeville District, 1830. Samuel is undoubtedly on page 57. It fits perfectly:

   Males
   1 to 5  (Samuel H.)
   1 5-10  (James)
   2 10-15 (John and William)
   1 40-50 (Samuel)

   Females
   1 5-10  
   2 10-15 
   2 15-20 (Margaret B and Mary C)
   1 40-50 (wife, Nancy?)

Daughter Jane married John C McCrery in 1829. He also had daughter, Martha L of unknown birth year.

Other names of interest include:

John A Hamilton, page 56, line 6.
Andrew Hamilton Sr, page 56, line 7
Hamilton Hill, page 56, line 24. He m2 Samuel's daughter, Margaret
John McCrary, page 57, line 2. Probably his son-in-law.

Sarah Foster, on page 46, may have been Sarah (Golding) Foster and the widow of Samuel Sr (d 1825). She died in 1845.

The entries for the 1840 census are opposite to what I'd expect. In fact, I'm convinced that that's the case--James and Samuel were mis-enumerated. James's household matches what Samuel's should have looked like and visa vera. Samuel's wife at the time would have been Margaret Lusk.

If Samuel was indeed the son of James Couples Foster, his genealogy would look something like the ahnentafel below. Stephen Hopkins and his son Giles were passengers on the Mayflower. However, I found the following quoted on several web pages, apparently written by Worth Ray:

This David is often tied to Hannah Hopkins because of a will dated Nov 22, 1734, where David Murray was a testator in the will of Elizabeth Davis of Somerset County, Maryland. Other testators include Nathaniel Hopkins and Hannah Murray. HOWEVER, subsequent research uncovered the will of David m. Hannah Hopkins and the list of children is DIFFERENT than those connected to this David (Samuel, Adam, and David)

And here's an excellent post to the MORROW-L Archives by Bill Morrow.

I have just received info that Hannah Hopkins, (dau of Nathaniel Hopkins d.1739/40 Somerset Co Md), who married David Murray/Murrow, was not the wife of David (50) Morrow shown on page 256 of Worth Ray's "Tennessee Cousins". David Murray/Murrow, husband of Hannah Hopkins died 1746 in Somerset Co Md leaving children: Esther, William, Samuel & Nathaniel Hopkins Murray. Source: page 92, "Colonial Families of the Eastern Shore, Vol 10" by Vernon L. Skinner, Jr & F. Edward Wright.

The children listed under David (50) Morrow were: (100) Rev David Morrow (101) Alexander (102) Old Samuel d.1796 SC (103) Adam (104) John (106) James (107) Sarah (108) William Morrow. Source: page 256 "Tennessee Cousins" 1950 by Worth Ray.

My conclusions are that these were two different men. And I also think that "David Walter Morrow" did not exist, some researchers must have garbled David (50) Morrow and Walter (28) Morrow into one person. Double given names didn't start until early 1800's. Walter Morrow died 1709 in Baltimore County Md. I don't know when David (50) Morrow died. Page 296 of "Morrows & Related Families" 1972 by Dr. J.T. Morrow shows birthyear 1700 deathyear 1780, but no proof is shown.

I think David (50) Morrow's birthyear may have been about 1693, based upon his grandfather David (3) Morrow's will which chides son Alexander (22) Morrow that if he dies without issue (children) his inheritances revert to his siblings. Worth Ray states on page 262 of "Tennessee Cousins" that ..."Alexander (22) Morrow was probably married and a father at that time, but the testator (David (3) Morrow) wanted him to "raise" them and to be sure he had "living heirs" at his death."

So, there would be no Mayflower connection. Nevertheless, here's the "traditional" descent, greying out the disputed Hopkins lineage.

The issue of Samuel's descent may one day be decided by DNA. The trick is to find a patrilineal descendant of Samuel's (a male Foster), test his Y chromosome for markers suitable for genetic genealogy, and compare them with the markers found in a proven descendant of James Couples Foster. That, however, may only prove that Samuel and James were of the same family, not necessarily that they were father and son. A detailed study of the DNA of many known patrilineal would need to be made to make the relationship conclusive. However, to that end, it's necessary to find those living descendants. His son John A Foster, it needs to be noted, had no sons.

As of 1860, Samuel's son, James Foster, had the following family.
