George Foglesong

OBITUARY.
[communicated]
Died, in this town, on the morning of the 6th inst., after an illness of ten days, Mr. GEORGE FOGLESONG, in the 48th year of his age. In the death of this excellent man, our village, where he has resided for twenty five years, has been deprived of one of its most valuable, and public spirited citizens; the poor have lost a friend to whose heart the claims of distress were never presented in vain; and the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which he was a leading and worthy member for more than thirty years, has been bereaved of one of her brightest ornaments. In his life, it may be truly said, the transcendant excellencies of religion shone forth with peculiar luster, and by all who knew him his memory will long be cherished, with affection. A little more than two weeks previous to his death, he was called to mourn the loss of the wife of his bosom, who like him departed with the blessings of society upon her head, and the comforts of religion in her heart; thus speedily has the providence of heaven called him to reunite in the paradise of God, with her who was the partner of his sorrows and his joys in this world. Five children are left to weep and lament at the loss of their earthly parents and many connexions & friends with them commingle their tears; but they sorrow not as those who have no hope.” His funeral was attended by a large concourse of citizens, and an appropriated sermon delivered on the occasion, by the Rev. D. D. Dyche from 37th verse of the 37th psalm.

“Our friend is dead – dead did I say?
O! no he lives in everlasting day;
In purest climes with all the blest,
He lives in everlasting rest.”
