Evelyn Ella "Brandy" Almond was born about 1927/8 ("age 41" Aug 1969).  Robert Battle reports that Evelyn was born in the Bronx, [[New York]].

Sometime before 1952, she moved to the Los Angeles area.  [http://www.geocities.com/jodiefosterph/us050800.html This article] states that Lucius "...already had three kids from a previous marriage.  In 1954, he met a pretty young woman named Evelyn "Brandy" Almond at a fencing club and married her impetuously during a trip to Tijuana, Mexico."  They had four children, the oldest being Lucinda Courtney Foster born [[Oct 26]], 1954, and the youngest being the actress Jodie Foster.  They divorced, both remarrying other people and then divorcing, in the Los Angeles area.  It has been stated that Brandy was a film producer, although it's also possible that she merely worked for a film producer.  These connections possibly explain how both Buddy and Jodie became child stars.

An article in ''She Australia'' [http://www.geocities.com/jodiefosterph/she050198.html excepted here] states that Brandy and her live-in lover Josephine Dominguez "Aunt Jo" brought up the four siblings, and that Alicia Christine Foster was called "Jodie" after her mother's lover "Jo. D."  This article is evidently quoting this statement from Buddy Foster's biography of his sister.
