I am looking for a William M. Foshee born
1823 in Alabama. He moved to Louisiana and
married Samantha Dixon in Sabine Parish in
1856. He had children from a previous
marriage. We do not know if he died in the
civil war or what happened to him.
He may have settled in Calcasieu Parish. He
had children named Marvin, James, Louise,
Fred, Elizabeth, Elgy, and Green Warren. Elgy
and Green were Samantha's children.
We don't know anything about Elgy. My great
grandfather was Green.
Looking for information on gggrandfather James
Madison Foshea. He was born around 1950 some say
in Louisiana. Came to Texas as a young man.
Changed the spelling of name to Foshea. Someone
said his dad name was William. His Children
were George William. Susan Allison, Maria Ealean.
James Jefferson ( my grandfather) Mary Loyd,Francis,
MFP., Lydia Janett, Robert Abby.

have a great great grandfather named William Foshee.
Should have read my message more than twice.
