I believe your Robert Foust was listed in the 1920 census of Tennessee.
Foust, Robert
Age: 53 Year: 1920
Birthplace: Tennessee Roll: T625_1728
Race: White Page: 4B
State: Tennessee ED: 10
County: Anderson Image: 0255
Township: District 9
Foust, Robert Head of household male white age 53 married Born Tenn. Occupation farmer
Foust, Martha J. Wife female white age 49 married Born Tenn. Occupation house work
Foust, Eva S. Daughter female white age 26 Single Born Tenn.
" Mary M. Daughter female white age 21 Single Born Tenn.
" Walter V Son Male white age 19 Single born Tenn.
" Pern Son Male White age 11 Single Born Tenn.
Lamb, Benn P. Grandson Male White age 8 Single Born Tenn.
Recorded birthplace of all the above show both parents born Tenn. Recorded all could read and write. Son Pern was in school.
SSDI has Walter V. Foust born 5-15-1900 died 2-27-1991
SSDI has Pern Foust born 9-11-1908 died Nov 1941.
The 1880 census of Anderson County TN has a Samson Foust with a son Robert age 13. You can look at this family by going to WWW.familysearch.org, click the search tab and either search the census or input the name and search all records. If this were my family, I'd look for other information regarding Samson. It appeared to me that he was the only one in Anderson Co TN with a son named Robert on the 1880 census- of course, they could have been in another county.

This family was in both the 1910 and 1920 Anderson County, TN, censuses and in 1910 was in District #5. Robert was born abt. 1868 in Anderson County, so I presume that they lived in Anderson County all of their lives.

According to ancestry.com, there are 2 Robert Fousts in Anderson County in 1920. One is Robert and Martha J. (age appropriate to be the right Robert. The other Robert is Robert L. and wife Maudie. Robert L. was 29 years of age. Is it possible that Robert and wife Martha J. are the same as the Robert and Maggie you are referring to?

I found additional information regarding Robert and Maggie on the Anderson Co TN census of 1920. He is listed as Bob Foust age 56, Maggie age 53 and children- Nelda?, Abner?, Rufe, Martha, Mary, Leon,May, and Nita.
The would indicate that there are 2 Robert Fousts in Anderson Co. TN born within 3-4 years of each other. Using the 1920 census, the birth year of Robert who married Martha J. fits the 1880 census of Robert, son of Sampson/Samson Foust. This may not be so. What documentation do you have that shows Robert (Bob) as the son of Sampson/Samson?

Subject: Robert Foust/TN

My wife and I believe that one of the Robert Fousts in Anderson County
in 1920 is the younger brother of my wife’s great grandfather, Isaac
McClellan Foust. Robert Foust and his brothers, their mother and their
stepfather are listed in the 1880 census for Knox County, district 5, NA
film number T9-1265, page 241A. Isaac, age 18, and Robert, age 14, are
living with their older brother Absolum, age 21, their mother (Eliza)
Jane (Kirkpatrick) Foust, age 49, now apparently married to William
Garrett, age 27. The father of Absolum, Isaac and Robert was Isaac
Foust, born about 1832. The date or place of their father’s death is
not known.

The existence of Isaac McClellan Foust’s brother Robert was further
confirmed in the obituary for Isaac McClellan Foust appearing in the
Knoxville Journal and Tribune of April 30, 1920, page 3, column 1.
Isaac died on April 25,1920. The obituary mentions two brothers, Robert
Foust of Edgmour (Edgemoor), Abb Foust of Knoxville and one sister Mrs.
Margaret Garrett of this place (Clear Springs, Tennessee). Margaret
Foust married John Garrett on May 11, 1871 in Knox County.

The 1920 census in which the Robert and Martha J. Foust family is found
only identifies the enumeration district as district 9 of Anderson
County. I do not know if the community of Edgemoor was in District 9.

We suspect that the Robert Foust listed as being married to a Martha
Jane Roach on 16 August 1891 in Knox County is probably the Robert Foust
who is the youngest son of Isaac and Eliza Jane Kirkpatrick Foust. At
this point, we do not have any corroborating evidence.

I have quite a bit of information about the ancestors of Isaac McClellan
Foust that I would be happy to share with anyone interested in this
family line.

You could be correct. Here is what I found when I looked up the info on your Foust family.
1860 Knox TN census p 181
Isasc Foust 28 M farmhand from TN
Jane 28 F TN
Rachel 7 F "
Jane 5 F "
Absolom 2 M "
Georgena 8/12 F "

The following information found on www.familysearch.com
William GARETT Self M Male W 27 TN Laborer TN TN
Jane GARETT Wife M Female W 47 TN Keeps House TN TN
Abner FOUST SSon S Male W 21 TN Laborer TN TN
Isac FOUST SSon S Male W 18 TN Laborer TN TN
Robert FOUST SSon S Male W 14 TN Laborer TN TN
Census Place District 5, Knox, Tennessee
Family History Library Film 1255265

I assume the "Abner" listed above is Absolom.
