Leroy A. Foster
"Leroy A. Foster was born in Lagrange county, Ind., on May 31, 1872, the son of Lewis and Julia Gage Foster. He attended local county schools. He married Maude Hemminger and they had two children, Ralph and Merrill. Foster taught school for three years and later set up an abstracting business with his two sons. He prepared for his legal career by reading law under F.J. Dunter of Lagrange and was admitted to the Indiana bar in 1895. He established a law practice in Lagrange which he maintained until his death in 1934. Foster wrote under the pseudonym Nicolas O'Tyne."
