The death of Foster WHITLOCK, aged about 65 years, occurred at his home,
two miles west of Dix, Wednesday night, of pneumonia. He was a soldier
in the Civil War and was one of the best citizens in the county; his neighbors
and acquaintances speak of him in the highest terms. Mr. WHITLOCK was a valuable
member of the M. E. Church and a member who will be greatly missed.
His wife and 13 children survive him; Mrs. G. M. RUSH, of this city, is a daughter.
The funeral arrangements have not been decided on as yet, but will be announced later.
I didn't see anything more about the arrangements.
