Jonathan and Sarah Foster of Washington County, New York , and Many of Their Descendants, 1735-2005. An American Family with roots in New York - Margaret Willett Ernest. The author has compiled an extensive genealogy of the Jonathan and Sarah Foster family of Washington County, New York. It traces six generations of Foster descendants from 1735 to 2005 as they migrated throughout the country. Many old New York families are included: Cornell, Heath, Hillman, Kenyon, Roberson, Rogers Tanner, Tefft, Willett, and many more. While it is true that famous people make history books, it is ordinary people who make history. And so it is with the Foster family. As the nation’s lifestyle changed, so did theirs. They began as farmers, then went into more commercial pursuits. They moved westward into new and often uncharted territories. Each of them had their own unique story and contributed in their own way. This genealogy is formatted in the Register style that is recommended by the New England Historic Genealogy Society. Numerous vintage photographs of people and places enliven the text, and a full name index makes research a snap. 2007, 6x9, paper, index, 508 pp.
