Drury Foster SR. son of James

Drewster or Drury Foster I was born abt. 1767 probably Bedford Co, VA, and died after 1850 in Giles Co, Tennessee.  He married Mary Pratt, dtr of James Pratt and wife Mary, she born abt 1770 in VA. They were married 6 April 1786 in Bedford Co, VA.
The first record of Drury occurs under the name Drurester Foster with his April 3, 1786 marriage record to Mary Pratt in Bedford County, Virginia.  Witnesses, to this marriage were John Dowdy, Ezekial Dowdy, John Foster, Abner Foster and his parents, James and Mary Foster.  The next record of him occurs in a 1787 Virginia Tax list, where he is listed as being between the age of 16 and 21 years of age, having no black slaves, one horse and one cow.  He was listed as not tithable.  In this same tax record in Bedford County are listed James Foster, John Foster and Abner Foster. 

The next record we have is of a Drury Forster (Foster?) in Warren County, Kentucky in 1810.  There were a large number of Fosters that settled in that Warren County which later became Allen County, Kentucky.  It appears that by 1819 Drury Foster had moved to Sumner Co., Tennessee where he appears on the tax record. 
        Sometime between living in Sumner Co., Tennessee (1819) and Giles Co., Tennessee (1824) he may have also journeyed back to Bedford County, Virginia where he and Mary are listed in his wife’s family estate land transaction.  In this fortunate record is a listing of all the brothers and sisters of Mary (Pratt) Foster along with a few nieces and nephews.  This land grantor record of May 27, 1822 to James and Lucy Woodford (a sister to Mary) and Joshua R. Brown from Joshua Pratt, lists the following relatives; John Wilkes and his wife Judith, Drury Foster and his wife Mary and Hugh, Joshua, Jane and Polly Pratt infant heirs of Jesse Pratt deceased.  This record confirms that the name Drurester used on the marriage license to Mary Pratt in 1786 is the same person listed in 1822 as Drury.  What is so interesting about this record is that the names “Drury Foster & wife Mary” were added after the original document was pinned, which typically means that this was added later by a couple not physically present at the time of estate land transaction but in another location (perhaps in Kentucky or Tennessee?).
        The next record of Drury Foster appears in 1824 with his purchase of some 141 acres in District 14/15 of Giles County, Tennessee Then his name appears in the 1836 Tax List of Giles County, Tennessee, District 14.  In the 1840 Federal Census Record of Giles County, Tennessee we find a Drewry Foster age 70 to 80 years of age (our Drury would have been 73), a woman age 70 to 80 years (Mary Foster would have been 70), a woman age 40 to 50 (unknown), a woman age 30 to 40 (Rhoda Foster would have been 33 years of age) and a young boy age 5 to 10 (Woodford Perry Foster would have been 7 years of age).  In the 1850 Federal Census Record of Giles Co., Tennessee we find Drury Foster (age 83), Mary Foster (age 80), Rhoda Foster (age 43) and Woodford Perry Foster (age 17). 
                It is believed that Drury and his wife died and were buried in Giles Co., TN.

      Lucy Foster was born in Virginia probably in Bedford County.  She journeyed with her parents to Warren County, Kentucky when a young lady and eventually to Smith County, Tennessee where she met her future husband, Thomas Grisham.  An interesting story has been handed down through the generations and preserved by their family researcher, Will Smith of Hillsboro, Tennessee, sheds light on Lucy’s personality.  At a neighbor’s barn raising in Smith County, Tenn. around 1809 or 1810, Lucy was attracted to one of the handsome men involved in the barn raising.   In order to determine if this was the man for her, Lucy sliced a boiled egg in half, removed the yolk, filled the cavity with salt and then ate the whole egg, salt and all.   She then went to sleep and dreamed that Thomas brought her a bucket of water to quench her thirst.  When she awoke, she took this dream to mean that she was to marry Thomas Grisham.  Lucy had a reputation as a “faith doctor” claimed she knew how to use folk medicine to cure warts, headaches, etc. 
     Thomas Grisham was a veteran of the Battle of New Orleans in 1815, where he served with Capt. William Griffin’s 14th Regiment, Detached Kentucky Militia.  For his service during this conflict he received land grants near Lynnville, Giles County, Tennessee.  Ironically his father was Drury Grisham, whose descendants include William Jefferson Blythe, a.k.a. President Bill Clinton.  Thomas is remembered as a man who never cursed or used foul language in any form.  However, one day when he went out to get water from the drinking tank, he spotted a calf drinking from the family’s water supply.  He became so enraged that he began kicking the calf.   Shortly after, he became so violent that the family had to build a cabin to retain the changed Thomas.  They were so fearful of his behavior that not even the door to the cabin would be opened to feed him but instead women would slide meals to him through a slot that was cut in the logs with an added shelf.  Occasionally the men would unchain the door and clean him and the cabin as they saw necessary.  One of Thomas’s children having pity on him one day thought they would make him more comfortable by placing a nice feather mattress in his cabin.  The next morning when they went to check on their father they found him sitting next to the shredded mattress blowing feathers through the air.  He died shortly thereafter, on March 10, 1838.
     Lucy continued to live on the family property until 1844 when she sold this property and moved to Tishomingo County, Mississippi.  For reasons unknown to her children she managed to sell this property below market value to John Biffle for $350.  In 1854 these children now living in Tishomingo County, Mississippi sued John Biffle, et. al. for rights to the land claiming their mother had no right to sell the property without their consent.  Lucy died while living at Burnsville (Tishomingo Co.) Mississippi at the approximate age of eighty-three years.   It is not known where she was buried.
It is thought by a few researchers myself included, that a James Forrester (Foster) married a Rhoda Walton in Barren County, KY, and that this James was a son of Drury and Mary.  Also the following James Foster could be either James SR the Father of Drury, or James Jr the brother of Drury or Drury's son James.
