Death: Jul. 18, 1905
Custer County

Daughter of Perry Foster of Davis County, Iowa and Sarah Ellen Comer of Grinnell, Poweshiek County, Iowa.

News Article from Custer County Republican 20 Jul 1905:

"Last Thursday as Mrs. Perry Foster, accompanied by three of her children, were returning from Westerville to Ansley, Fanny, the four year old daughter was fatally kicked in the head by the horse they were driving. Mrs. Foster had been to visit her mother near Westerville. On their return the breeching of the harness broke and let the buggy onto the horse, which caused it to kick.
Little Fanny was struck in the head and rendered unconscious. The physicians at Ansley were unable to relieve the patient and she was taken to Omaha where she died. Her remains were brought back to Ansley Sunday night and her remains were laid to rest in the Ansley cemetery.
The funeral was preached at 2 o'clock by Rev. J.R. Wood of Mason City.
For several years, until two or three months ago the Foster's had resided in Broken Bow, where they are well known.
Fanny was a bright little girl and was the delight of all who knew her. The parents have the sympathy of all their many friends in Broken Bow."
