My great grandfather, James E. Foster, was maried 3 times. His second wife would have been my gr. grandmother. She died when my grandfather was only 4 years old. The family lived in Clinton, KY my mother believes, and moved to Missouri shortly after my gr. grandmother's death. My gr. grandfather then married an Elsey Dunlap in Charleston, Missouri. Mother says that grandfather told her that Elsey treaten my grandfather and his sister like house servants and made them do all the housework, laundry and cooking. She said one day, grandfather got tired of it and when Elsey told his sister, Beverly, to cook dinner, grandpa told her she was not doing it. Elsey then slapped grandpa, grandpa pushed her down and packed his belongings and left, never speaking the Elsey or his father again, he was 17 years old. When his father died, he was very wealthy but only left my grandpa $1, mean old man! We don't know my gr. grandmother's name, mom thinks it may be Elizabeth or Delores, she died in 1896. Email me with/for info!
