I was pleased to see that the Londonderry Sentinel picked up my post about Stephen Collins Foster (1826-1864), who was the pre-eminent songwriter in America in the 19th century and whose family came from Londonderry. His great-grandfather Alexander Foster (1710-1767) emigrated from Londonderry around 1728 and his brother Morrison Foster (1823-1904) was a member of the Scotch-Irish Society of America. The post was on 1 January and the article appeared in the Sentinel on 6 January.
