John Foster Booth married Mary Jane Bonner. They had John Joseph Booth, Thomas Samuel Booth, Clara Booth and Annie Booth. Apparently John Foster Booth may have left the colony. Mary Jane died and all the children were put in an orphanage. Clara died in orphanage. I am unsure where John and Thomas went. Annie married Youens.
