Foster Whitlock
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.
