“I was stationed in England at RAF Lakenheath with the 48th Fighter Wing
from Aug 2000 through May 2003.”
“As I understand it, the house he [Christopher Foster] lived in is still standing. I have seen that there are some books on the Christopher Foster ancestry and the migration west. What would be neat would be to have a family day someplace in between or even a migration back to the origin of the family. i.e. Chautauqua County NY, McKean County PA, Washington County NY, Ridgeville Connecticut, Southampton Long Island, Lynn Massachusetts, Ewell Surrey England, Hunsdon Hertfordshire England, Bamburg Castle Northumberland England, and Flanders, France and Belgium.
It is truly a beautiful story of immigration and American life.”
