As far as I can find, both Oscar Jr and Oscar Sr were only children. Oscar Srs parents were named Anthony Forster (born in Germany, 1928 - sometime between 1900 and 1905), and his mother Alice nee Meyer born 1850 in France.
Oscar Sr and Nora Forster are both buried at the same cemetery. I can't find Nora pre-marriage anywhere though.

Have you contacted them with that info? It sounds like through that they could maybe find some living relatives somewhere, maybe on his mother's side.
Everything in my posts is just my opinion unless it's a quote. ||| please don't quote my posts outside of this site without my permission.
I'm no longer very active on WS due to lack of time, if you'd like to keep in touch feel free to PM me though.

I don't know how likely they are to be able to find his mother's family just from a maiden name and date of birth, I would wait to notify ME until there is some viable next of kin, or even a relative that might know who next of kin would be. Especially since Nora Lewis isn't an extremely rare name (plus, Lewis may not even be her maiden name, who knows).

I was massively wrong, the deceased's father was not an only child - he had older siblings all born in New York
Eduard Forster (b. 26 Mar 1874)
Antonette Foerster (b. 27 Apr 1876)
Cassillia James Forster (b. 11 Aug 1878)
Casse Forster (b. 05 Feb 1881)
Julian Forster (b. 12 Apr 1883)
There was also a sister Alice, who on 25 Jul 1897 in New York married a James Emmet (son of John Emmet and Annie Alchorn).

I will contact next of kin for CA cases and then notify ME.. I have permission to contact for my ME's in CA. Me's are overloaded and just do not have the time to go thru leads.. that's what we do for them.

I have I think found Alice in the 1900 Census as Alice Emmet, living with her husband James and 2 year old daugher Jennie Emmet, who was born in 1898
Jennie is therefore the deceased's first cousin. I will keep looking for her in records, but I think as she is likely to be deceased, and even her children may be deceased, it will be difficult to track anyone down. I think the difficulty is also that Oscar Sr and his only surviving sister Alice had a 10 or 11 year gap in age.
By 1905, there are two more first cousins: Eva Emmet and Robert Emmet. In 1915, Eva was 4 and Robert was 3.
