William M. Foster
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1839
New Jersey, USA
Death: Dec. 24, 1889
Atlas
Pike County
Illinois, USA

His parents were Reuben Foster and Catherine M. Thomas.

Civil War Veteran - Co. D. 75th Reg't Ohio and Co. H. 6th Reg't US Vet Vol. Inf.

He died from tuberculosis.

It is not known if he was buried in this cemetery. The record of his death at the courthouse does not list a place of burial. Since his wife was buried here, we are assuming he was as well.

A descendant, Leta Prater, of Pleasant Hill, Pike county, Illinois, obtained a gravemarker for him around 2009.
