"Last Civil War Veteran Dies in Charleston

Andrew Jackson Foltz, 94, Last of Boys in Blue from Coles County


OAKLAND, Ill., May 7 - Andrew Jackson Foltz, 94 years old, last Civil War veteran of Coles County, and a former resident of Oakland, died at 5:30 o'clock, Tuesday evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Albert Gerard, in Charleston. His death was attributed to a paralytic stroke.

Mr. Foltz was born on October 5, 1846 in [Page County] Virginia. He was a small child when his parents, Noah and Mary Kite Foltz, came to Oakland where he had spent most of his life [this is incorrect]. For the past few years he had resided with his daughter in Charleston.

In September, 1877, he was married to Narcissa Parker and she preceded him in death in November 1925. Nine children were born to the marriage, five of whom are deceased. Those living are as follows: Mrs. Gerard, of Charleston; Mrs. Rose Kuykendall, of Kansas, Ill; Mrs. Mamie Shives, of Oakland; and William Foltz, of Upton, Arizona. A brother, Grant Foltz, lives in Oakland, and a sister, Mrs. Margaret Wilson, is a resident of Shenandoah, Virginia.

Mr. Foltz enlisted with Company K, 11th Regiment Pennsylvania Cavalry. In 1938 he attended the 75th encampment of Civil War veterans in Gettysburg, Pa."
