Iam researching the "Foster" family from Birmingham AL. My mother was born Aug 25, 1946 to Nellie Sturdivant 15 yr old bf and Andrew Jack Foster bm (age not known at time). my grandmother Nellie lived at 530 or 531 N 41st place at the time of my mom's birth, Andrew J Foster lived next door or in that area. Nellie raised my mother around the age of 5yrs old or so in Louisville, Ky as last name of Foster (she was born a Sturdivant) Nellie died around 1957 from diabeteic comma. My mother got a chance to meet her grandmother (Carrie Foster) when she was 16 yr old, when she came to visit, through her aunt Orwill (Jessie Sturdivant who was the family historian and also she kept up with my mother's paternal family, she showed my mother Carrie Foster's obituary before Orwill died (a few months later of brain cancer). Andrew's mother,and one of his sisters, but no words were ever exchange to her knowledge). Andrew's mother's name was Carrie Foster, from her obituary she died Dec 26, 1981 . She lived at 500 43rd St. North. She was member of St. James Methodist Church. Andrew was listed as living at that time, along with 5 other brothers and 2 sisters.
