Christopher A. Foster, son of Alexander, was a near neighbor of Thomas Hays, who subsequently married his daughter Keziah; they were schoolmates. Mr. Foster was a farmer, later a merchant at Cowansville and was prominent in the public affairs of his locality, serving as justice of the peace (fifteen years) and school director.

He was a Republican in politics and Presbyterian in religion. He married Isabel Morrison, daughter of William and Margaret (Barnes) Morrison, of Armstrong county. Mr. and Mrs. Foster had children as follows: Keziah J., wife of Thomas Hays; Phoebe, who married Matthew McGarey, of Butler county (both are deceased); Elizabeth, wife of C.W. Jordan, of Cowansville; Sarah B., deceased, wife of William Luton (he resides on the Thomas Hays farm, "Haysville"); Nancy, who died when fifteen years old; and Mary A. and Alice, who died in infancy.
