Grave marker for Jared Foster, Opdyke Cemetery, Jefferson Co. IL
Mr. Perrin, above, has a couple of conflations in his piece. John Foster, who may be called Sr., though it isn’t clear he used this himself, was great-great-great-grandfather to the Jonathan who was Jared’s father. In between were Samuel and two Williams. John, born 1618, was the original immigrant, and settled in Salem, Massachusetts, the state in which the Fosters lived for several generations.
