WOW!  This is such a random post that I have to laugh at myself! Ira Harris posted the below on the HH mail list this morning:

Virginia State Library

Patent Book 17, page138

Don't know why .....but I decided to google to see if there was information on this Thomas Foster and found a website that I liked a lot:

The lady's name is Laurie and she has a very nice map on the site showing where the various Foster men lived in Amelia County.,,,,I just wanted to save this thought and here it is.
