was born in Ohio, May 1, 1830. She was the
daughter of William and Anna McClintock and came
with her parents to this state when a small
child. At first they settled near Vermont, but
in 1849 removed to Eldorado Township where they
made their home. She was the oldest of nine
children of whom only three survive. They are:
Mrs. J. N. Foster of Eldorado Township; Mrs. H.
H. Smith in Schuyler, Nebr. and Mrs. Rebecca L.
Hills of Wichita, Kansas. The deceased was
married to William D. Foster, May 29, 1851.
Eight children were born of this union. The
living are Mrs. Francis Smith, Tindall, MO.,
Mrs. Anna M. Wetzel of Colchester and Holmes,
L.C. and Harry of Table Grove. Mrs. Florence
Bottenberg, Richard R and Martha L. preceded
their mother to the life beyond. Besides these
children, there were 34 grandchildren, 27 of
whom are living and 56 great grandchildren, 53
of whom are living and who must mourn the
passing of one whose loving interest has meant
so much to their lives.
Mrs. Foster was
converted early in life, and with her husband
became charter members of the Sugar Creek church
in 1857, where she served God faithfully, Mr.
Foster being a devoted elder and faithful
supporter of the church. When in 1892, they
removed to Table Grove, they again became
charter members in helping to form a new church,
the Presbyterian, for the worship of God in this
place. Here her last years have been years of
loyal service to God and loving ministry to
others. Little wonder then that the Great Reaper
found her smiling and looking him in the face
she was so happy. For to depart and to be with
Christ and with those she loved was very far
