Give a brief description of the inhabitant. The man. The legend. Do we know any significant details about these guys? If yes, great! Include that here. If not, then this can just be ignored.

Thomas Foster. Origin: Loyalist
Thomas Foster was granted 100 acres of land on Long Island on 8 September 1789, and was exempt from paying quit rent on the land for 10 years, which leads us to believe he was likely a Loyalist. His land is bounded by the property of Hugh Dean, General McArthur, the sea, and a salina.
Thomas Foster and wife Mary had a daughter, Elizabeth, born on New Providence 27 June 1792. We did not find any earlier records of the surname “Foster.”
