Ontario County Journal 23 June 1911

At 7:30 o'clock on Wednesday evening at his home on Chapin street, occurred the death of John G. Foster, aged 76 years, following five months illness from Bright's disease. Deceased was born at Aurora, Aug. 22, 1835, the son of a Quaker minister. He came to Canandaigua 45 years ago at the close of the war, and up to within a year of his death was actively engaged at his trade of carriage maker, he being a particularly skillful mechanic. He married Miss Adelia Ryan, Jan. 20, 1857, who, with three sons, Charles and John, now in Alaska, and Bert Foster of Rochester; and one daughter, Mrs. Jennie Thurston of New York City, survive. Deceased was a veteran of the civil war and served in Co. G, 8th N. Y. Heavy Artillery. Funeral services will be held at the home at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and Rev. G. R. Dye will officiate.
