Sometime before 1952, she moved to the Los Angeles area, where she met Lucius Foster.  [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, all born in Los Angeles County, the oldest being Lucinda Courtney Foster born 26 Oct 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.
