Me :-))

William FOSTER was born somewhere- nobody seems to know just where. HELP!
He moved to the Niagara Region of Ontario- just across the border and
settled with hundreds of other Loyalists there.
He may have lived on the east coast of Canada in New Brunswick or Nova
Scotia for a few years.as there are a lot of other FOSTER Loyalists there.

The majority of Loyalists in the area came from "Bucks County
Pennsylvania." if that helps at all.

For the directionally challenged, Louth Township is right between Hamilton
Ontario and Niagara Falls Ontario on
Lake Ontario. It's famous as a wine and fruit growing area.
