Daniel A. Foss

Daniel A. Foss, a resident of the north village, died at his home last Saturday night of acute Bright's disease. He was first stricken with pneumonia and passed the critical point in that disease only to meet death from the latter trouble. Mr. Foss was a veteran of the late war, seeing three years of active service. He was a member of Co. F., 9th Vermont. Mr. Foss was a charter member of Aaron Keeler Post, G.A.R., and held the office of Quartermaster in that organization. Although a native of Lamoille County, he enlisted for Hinesburg. He has been a resident of North Hyde Park since his discharge from the service in 1865. Mr. Foss was a gruff, but kindly hearted man, and an upright, honest, hard- working citizen. He was 56 years of age. The funeral was held Tuesday, and was in charge of Aaron Keeler Post.
