Obituary

James A. Foster, an old and respected citizen of Waterbury, died last Thursday at the home of Edward Foster, his adopted son, of old age. He was in his 77th year and has been in feeble health for some time. Mr. Foster was at one time a well known lumber dealer in the vicinity, and owned and operated several saw mills. For a number of years he lived in Dowsville and did an extensive lumbering business. His wife died a number of years ago. There are no children living except his adopted son, with whom he was living at the time of his death. The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. L. K. Willman.
