Searching for information on EL Keith born about 1860 in Texas and married April 5, 1884 in Hunt County, Texas to Vilulen T. (Tulia) Foster. They had 7 children, George Henry, b. 1885, Nicholas, b. 1887, Abner, b. 1891, Otto, b. 1895, Homer, b. 1899, Burnel, b. 1901 and the only daughter Beatrice, b. 1906. I'm searching for his parents and siblings.

I think that Vilulen T Foster is the same person Vitula Foster, born abt 1861 in Hunt County. Her father was George R Foster, born in Alabama. I don't know any information on EL Keith. But this post helped me find more details on her. thanks!

"E L Keith" is a typo although I have observed "Alexander" spelled "Elexander" on more than one occasion. Via prior postings, I believe your primary interest to be surname Foster? Your analysis of Vitula is correct and supported by 1930 CA-San Bernardino-Ontario-District 46-Image 27. Mary A. Holliday age 59 was enumerated as sister-in-law to E. S.(L) Keith with "Vitulie" as part of the household. Data on your tree indicates you are aware Mary wed John W. Holliday. Add 1900 Indian Territory-Cherokee Nation-Township 20-District 30-Image 7, 1910 Hunt-Precinct 2-District 120-Image 12, and 1940 CA-San Bernardino-Ontario-(36-70)-Image 25 and you'll have Mary's entire census references. On 1900 Indian Territory, she/husband were neighbors of Alexander Keith's family. Recall seeing her mother also in 1900 Cherokee Nation but failed to record notes. Believe her mom's maiden name was McVey? That's part of California Death Record for Rufus Foster and also Mary Holliday (25 Jan 1943).

Yes, I am frustratingly seeking information on the Fosters. I added all of the information from the first post to my tree last night. Thanks for all of the extra information. I am especially trying to trace Vitula Foster Keith's father George R Foster, but my dead end is when he and his brother William (my ggg-grandfather) show up in the 1850 Census in Hunt County, Texas. Thanks.

Not much help in that effort. Perhaps probate, 1867 Voter Registration, Civil War enlistment, and/or land records will provide clues of their parents? Some forms of WWI Draft Registration Cards include father's birthplace.
