NOTE: There are some dates on these earlier descendants that could be wrong, as I have had many relations giving me different months and years, and they do not always match what I have. Some of the information has been taken from family members and papers from Jane Foster. If you have original certificates of any relations that are wrong on this page, please advise me and I will then correct them accordingly.   Thank you
