Robert Foster was born in 1834. After a brief schooling Foster worked in the tin industry and in his uncle's store in Indianapolis. On the outbreak of the American Civil War Foster joined the Union Army.

Foster fought under Lewis Wallace and promoted to the rank of major in June, 1861. He led the X Corps in the Department of Virginia and took part in the siege of Petersburg in June, 1864.

When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, President Andrew Johnson ordered the formation of a nine-man military commission to try the conspirators. The commission included Foster, David Hunter, Lewis Wallace, August Kautz, Thomas Harris and Albion Howe.

On 29th June, 1865 Mary Surratt, Lewis Powell, George Atzerodt, David Herold, Samuel Mudd, Michael O'Laughlin, Edman Spangler and Samuel Arnold were found guilty of being involved in the conspiracy to murder Lincoln. Surratt, Powell, Atzerodt and Herold were hanged at Washington Penitentiary on 7th July, 1865. Surratt, who was expected to be reprieved, was the first woman in American history to be executed.

Foster left the Union Army in September, 1865. He returned to Indianapolis where he held several public offices before his death in 1903.


Robert Foster b1770

Robert FOSTER (great-grandfather x 4) according to the Later Day Saints church records was baptized 03 Jun 1770 at Deal in Kent and according to St Leonard’s church Deal parish marriage registers married Hannah Makeings on the 09 Oct 1791 at Deal in Kent. Hannah Makeings according to her death certificate was probably born at Deal in Kent in 1764.

Married to Hannah MAKEINGS, in Deal Kent on the 9th October 1791 and had the following children:

01 Sarah Ann Foster baptised 26 September 1792 at Deal
02 Hannah Foster baptised 17 September 1794 at Deal
03 Philip Foster born 18 July 1796 at Deal (great-grandfather x 3)
04 Robert Francis Foster baptised 04 March 1798 at Deal
05 Daniel Foster baptised 06 July 1800 at Deal
06 George Foster baptised 24 October 1802 at Deal.

So far we have very little information on either Robert or Hannah Foster but we do know that Robert was a mariner and a member of the Sea Fencibles, a local voluntary defence force who were paid a few shillings each year. It appears that during the Coastal Blockade of 1816 to 1831 (introduced to once and for all end smuggling) prosperity all but ceased in Deal and between 1820 and 1830 there was extreme poverty in the Town. This could explain why both Robert and Hannah fell on hard times and became inmates to the Eastry Union Workhouse where they remained until their deaths. Hannah Foster’s (nee makeings) death certificate confirms she died in the Eastry Union Workhouse on 24 Mar 1838 aged 74 and Robert Foster’s death certificate confirms he died one year later also in the Eastry Union Workhouse on 09 December 1839 aged 69.

Courtview and the Foster Family

George Washington Foster Portrait Foster was born to Robert Coleman Foster and Ann Slaughter Hubbard Foster on November 28, 1806, in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1829, he married Sarah Independence Watkins, with whom he would have seven children. The daughter of Robert and Prudence Watkins, Sarah and her family had lived in Georgia until 1821, when they moved to Lauderdale County. Primarily a plantation owner, Foster's holdings in Lauderdale County alone included 6,281 acres and 100 enslaved people by 1860. His crops included grass seed, cotton, corn, and wheat, and his livestock holdings included horses, mules, oxen, sheep, and hogs. The plantation also produced butter. In addition to Courtview, Foster owned Woodland Plantation in a section of Lauderdale County known at the time as Colbert Reserve, as well as a plantation named Oak Grove near Courtland, Lawrence County. Courtview Courtview is a brick Greek Revival-style mansion that some historians believe was designed by Adolphus Heiman, an architect from Nashville, Tennessee. The front exterior of the home features a Grecian portico supported by white columns. The original interior featured white walls, white woodwork, and marble mantles for the fireplaces. The house had hot and cold running water when it was built because of a fountain that originally stood in the center of the front yard. The family stored water in a tank positioned on top of the house that was invisible from the ground. Rogers Hall Courtview passed to Foster's daughter Sallie after his wife Sarah died in 1887. Following the deaths of Sallie and her husband, Courtview became the home of Emmet O'Neal and his family in 1900. The son of Gov. Edward A. O'Neal, Emmet O'Neal was the 36th governor of Alabama and a resident of Lauderdale County. He was elected governor in 1911, and served two terms. Following the O'Neals' departure, the home was purchased by Thomas M. and Alberta Rogers in 1922. The Rogers family renovated the house and sold it to Florence State Teachers College (present-day UNA) in 1948. Dedicated to local history, the Susan K. Vaughn Museum was located on a floor of the mansion for several years, but was removed in 1968. Many items from the museum are now housed at Pope's Tavern and Museum in Florence. Located at 500 North Court Street in Florence, Courtview is now known as Rogers Hall and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The structure also was documented by the New Deal-era Historic American Buildings Survey program in the 1930s. The UNA offices of University Advancement, University Communications and Marketing, Alumni Relations, and the University Foundation are currently located in the building. Sallie Independence Foster, 1867 Sallie Independence Foster was born on October 28, 1848, in Nashville, Tennessee, and was the youngest child of Sarah Independence Watkins and George Washington Foster. From the age of seven she lived at Courtview, where she returned after a few years of marriage with children of her own. Sallie's best friend during her childhood was Julia O'Neal, the daughter of Alabama governor Edward A. O'Neal.

Sallie Independence Foster and Family Sallie graduated from the Florence Synodical Female College, a Presbyterian school for young women, in 1867. On February 9, 1870, she married Sterling Paine McDonald, who had been a boarder in the family home while he was a student at LaGrange College in Florence the couple would have six children. The family moved to Arkansas for several years, but returned to Florence to visit her family many times. The family moved into Courtview in 1886. Sallie's mother died in January 1887, and Sallie became the owner of the house, where she remained with her husband until their deaths. Sterling McDonald was sick for many years and died on April 4, 1897, and Sallie Independence Foster McDonald died eight months later on December 2.
