|KE Tuttle||Wilhemina Woody|
Thank you for looking for the grave of Wilhemina S Woody Foss.
Wilhelmina S Woody married John Foss after the death of that man's wife, Aura Ann,and marriage/moving out of state by his daughter, Jane Rebecca Foss Kern.
John was elderly and hired the widowed Wilhelmina to care for his house and cook for him. John's son and family were appalled that he would have a younger woman under his roof without any other persons. John settled the issue by marrying the younger woman and she would benefit by having his pension after his death, being allowed to live in the house the rest of her life. She went back to using her previous name and was supposed to be buried next to her first husband.
John Foss was one of the oldest men signing up for service in General Grant's Army. Wilhelmina was one of the last living widows of a Civil War.

My grandfather went to Clifton and showed the graves to his children. I visited the cemetery in 1973. I seem to remember having the grave pointed out to me. John is buried next to his first wife and love, Aura Ann; Wilhelmina by her first husband. Both are listed in our family books as at the IOOF Cemetery.
Thank you for your efforts. We will have to look at this from another angle or maybe another close by cemetery.
