History of Fosterburg, Illinois

Oliver Foster, b. 1779 reportedly founded the town of Fosterburg. Oliver was m. to Hannah Eldred and according the info on FindAGrave, they had 10 children. A descendant of Oliver and Hanna's dau Emira, b. 1807 in Montville, ME. is filing an application for membership in the DAR. We need a birth certificate that shows the names of both Oliver and Hannah. There is one online that shows only the father Oliver Foster. Does anyone have any official documents that show that Emira was the dau of Oliver and Hannah? I would sincerely appreciate any help as we are at a brick wall plus. Thanks, Carol in Arizona

Carol-

I go to the Edwardsville Library to do my research and
checked this out for you. There is a small book that was
done on this family.There was also a family file done by
someone. Here is a little info I found.
Emira Foster b. 10-17-1807 d. 6-30-1851 buried in
Fosterburg Cemetery. She married William Heath
marriage license issued 10-9-1894 Bk. 6 Page 12 Cert. 475
After William died she remarried Zachariah Harris on
2-15-1838. Now according to the file done it show Emira
and Wm. Heath having 5 children and her and second
husband having 6 children. In the book there are copies
of different records and the only birth record on Emira
is probably the one you saw with only the father's name.
If you need any more info on this family let me know and
I will be glad to look it up for you.
The book and file are done on the whole Oliver Foster/
Hannah Eldred family.
