Last name: Foster

I speak with an Irish accent when I have a few drinks, and my beard gets red unlike the rest of my hair. I have an extreme liking to the movie Boondock Saints and the song The Blood of CuChulainn. (East Texas)
There is another definition of Foster: which is the German word FURST: meaning foreigner or someone from "over there yonder" or far away..........its also a common French name: De Forest: (not referring to trees) referring instead to far away or foreigner.........
So when its found in old Anglo Saxon regions its more than likely the Germanic version: kind of means Guy who Lives up on that Hill far away....or guy from a foreign or strange place.........

My grandfather was originally Albert Foster of Cadillac Michigan. He was adopted by the Rairdon Family at the age of ten and moved to Minnesota. His father was John Foster and his mother was Bertha Foster formerly known as Bertha Mooney. Anyone here from that area in Michigan or have ties to it? I would like to find some of his extended family.
