Aged 63y 2m 15d "Father we miss thee"

DIED ISAAC I.FOSTER - At River Falls, Jan 9th after an illness of fifteen days aged 63 years.
Mr. Foster was one of the pioneers of the Northwest. having settled in Prescott in 1851. Since that time there have been few men in this St. Croix Valley, more alive to its interests, more active in all public matters, than he. Possessed of more than ordinary ability, with keen insight, sound judgement. a large experience with men, and a love of justice which no personal feelings could swerve, he was one whose counsel was widely sought and whose advice was weighty and influential. He was of kindly and social nature, disdaining all hypocrisy or deceit, and the imperfections which are common to all our lives, he was too truthful to conceal. His earthly life closed and it can be truthfully said of him, what is the best tribute that can be paid to any one , that the sincere respect of friends and the tender, sorrow of relatives accompany him to the grave. Prescott Journal 1-15-1869

We regret to learn of the dangerous illness of I. I. Foster, Esq., of River Falls. Congestion of the lungs is the malady and it is said there is little hope of his recovery. We trust this is a mistake and that we may again see Mr. F. among us as vigorous and healthy as of yore. Prescott Journal 1-8-1869
