Foster Stephen Collin

Foster, Stephen Collin (1826-1864), an American song-writer, was born in Pennsylvania, and was in business at Cincinnati. Of his earlier songs, which were of the kind known as negro minstrelsy, Uncle Ned, 0 Susanna, and Old Folks at Home are examples. At a later period he produced others, which were coloured by the saddened circumstances of his life. Among these later songs are Old Dog Tray, Willie, we have missed Yon, and Come where my Love lies Dreaminy.
