I'm looking for any more information on my 4th great grandfather William Foster who is in the 1821 census for Drumbo, Annagelliffe, Cavan, aged 70,  living with his daughter Mary Foster (m Richard Dancey).- (the family is actually entered under the name Darcey not Dancey as it should be). Mary Foster/Dancey head of the household, & by then a widow, was aged 41 in the census, and also had her nephew William Foster aged 10 (so born about 1810/12), living with them. Mary still seems to have been alive in 1837/39 - there is an entry for Mary Dancy in Drumbo in the 1837 or 1839 Valuation Office books, but no Fosters for that area. I'm particularly interested in tracing the nephew, William. and possibly the death of his uncle William. I have no other Foster family details. It's even possible the Fosters came from Monaghan. as my Dancey's had connections there.
Any help appreciated thanks
