Thanks for such a quick response to my reply. The name of your GGG grandfather intrigues me. My GG Grandfather was William J, his son was William Henry, Wm Henry's son was Augustus. Quite a coincidence if they are not connected. I do not have my info with me, but it seems that in early Alabama marriage records I found on Ancestry.com, that there was another Foster/Parker marriage within a couple of years of my GG grandparent's marriage. Do you have any further info on Augustus William that I could use as clues to extend my family search? Thanks again for your response.
