Telling my family's stories
Elizabeth Church was the daughter of Morey Harrington Church from Vermont and Mary McCrossen a Scot born in Ireland. She was born in New York and lived in Livingston, NY where she met Ephraim Foster. They moved to Michigan where they married and their children Edgar, Ida and Decker were born; Elizabeth’s sister Rebecca lived with them as a school-teacher for a while. Not very much is known about Elizabeth as she died at 36, when her children were under twelve. Her granddaughter Caroline Foster, writing about her father Edgar said that “by [Elizabeth] he was taught to love God”.
