    12. [S204] The History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio, (Name: Warner, Beers & Co., 1884 Chicago;).
      GEORGE FOSTER (deceased) was born in Mill Township, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, October 15, 1820, and was a son of Henry and Lydia A. (Pool) Foster. the former a native of Ireland, the latter of Virginia, of German descent.
      This statement indicates that Lydia A. Pool was born in Virginia which is borne out by other sources, but also says that she was of German descent. This is probably incorrect, since Pool is not a German name and other sources indicate her parents were from Ireland.

      "Mary Foster was married in 1841 to Robert Breeze Ogden in West Virginia." (Note: we know this to be true from the Ogden family bible that they were married on 20 May 1841) "Her mother was Lydia Pool, who married Henry Foster." (Note: we know from the Wesley and Rebecca Foster family bible that a Lydia Pool married Henry Foster 24 Sep 1813 in Ohio and also that Lydia's birth date was given as 12 Feb 1787. Henry Foster was listed as being born 24 Jun 1775)
