James Foster was born around the yearly 1800’s to a Choctaw Indian mother named Ate-man-she. She spoke no English and refused to wear the dress of the white woman. James married Malinda Mildred (“Milly”) Womack who then gave birth to Ellen Foster about 1826 in Mississippi. Ellen married Lee J. Campbell around 1843 in Jackson Parrish, Louisiana. Lee J. was born around
1818 in Mississippi. Lee J. Campbell and his wife, Ellen along with a five year old son, Aren, appeared on an 1850 Census in Jackson Parrish, Louisiana. This is the only time Aren is ever found so it is possible he died as a child. Lee and Ellen appear on the 1860 and 1870 Census in Lamar County, Texas along with their children: James Madison, born 848; Ephraim F., born 1850; Elizabeth C. (Paddock), born 1851 Milly A., born 1852; Sarah Jane (Kirkendall), born 1855; Dortha, born 1856; and Amanda (Lenochan), born 1860.
