Ozro Blanding Foster, life and times.

O.B. seated with Ida Porter on trip to New York c. 1915

While this started out as a means to preserve a small recollection of O. B. Foster, my great grandfather based on a 1930 bio by Ida Porter and some additional stories I remember hearing as a child, I have discovered the story of John Walter, another of my great grandparents, as told in 1945. And thanks to the capability of the internet I was able to discover considerable new information on my other namesake, great grandfather Lare Dean. I have also traced my cousins Mayo and Rockwell families. And produced a brief exploration of my ex-wife family.
