About Thomas Arthur Foster

Thomas Foster settled in 1760 in the area which became Hyattstown, Maryland.

The Foster Family first settled on the bleak hills of MA, near Myrickville, where the bones of many of our forefathers sleep.

About 1760, Thomas Foster, with a member of his neighbors went to the

sea-coasts and loaded their few belongings on a sailing vessel of the style of that time and started down the coast to the new settlements of Maryland. He entered the Chesapeake Bay and pushing up the Potamac River he settled near the present town of Hyattsville, Prince Georges County, Maryland.
