Narrative for Israel Foss b c1772-1773

Today I began putting a narrative together for Israel Foss. I like to use the format from the series “Maine Families in 1790”. I like being able to read the sources as I read the narrative.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as nice on wordpress as it does in MS Word.

Israel and Betsey had 13 children. I think that documenting them in this narrative will be my focus for the next several weeks. For this week I have only added their first child, Charles. I am a descendant of Charles and Sarah (Davis) Foss.

Foss, Israel

Israel Foss, b at Machias ME, c 1772-1773 son of Benjamin and Sarah (Mitchell) Foss of Scarborough ME and Machias ME.
