Long Description:
This small family plot is in the corner of a cattle field. It should have been fenced off, but wasn't. Instead, the gravestones have all been pushed over. Some have been leaned back up against trees. According to FindAGrave there were 4 interments in the Foster Cemetery, and not likely to ever be any more! The first burial was of a 2-month old baby.

I do not suggest that you go through the barbwire fence like I did. Your visit photo can be taken from the road. You may park at N36°27.681,W94°09.495 at the side of the road, Mariano Road.

Earliest Burial: 7/13/1861

Latest Burial: 3/6/1885
