  • Notes 
    • "Nathan Foster was born in Massachusetts and before reaching his majority went to Maine. He located at what was later incorporated as Norway. Was always a farmer. He took a prominent part in all of the town's affairs. His death was very sudden. He went to the barn to attend to his stock and was found dead in the yard, where he had fallen, as was supposed, in a fit of apoplexy." [Foster Genealogy, citation details below]
