Few of the early settlers and old-timers in this section of the state were better known or more highly regarded than Mr. A.W. Foye who passed to the great beyond Tuesday morning, October 11. Of these men, Mr. Foye was a splendid specime - sturdy, vigorous and strong, generous and able, a man to be feared and admired, respected. He was a sociable man. By his side until May 1898, he had the trusted and loving wife. He lived with his daughter, Mrs. George Evans. Four sons survive, James M., Albert W., William and Charles. He was born in Gardiner, Maine, July 16, 1829, the youngest of 11 children. He went to Illinois in 1853 and in 1855 to Blackhawk County, Iowa. He married Margaret Buffinton in 1856. They had 8 children. In 1858 they moved to Missouri staying there for a couple of years and then returning to Iowa. They remained there for 11 years and then, because of failing health decided to come to the coast. They came to this area in 1871, settling on a splendid farm tract at Tualco, which he owned to his death and which he took up as a homestead. The homestead embraced a little less than 160 acres and will be divided evenly among the four surviving sons. Funeral services were held at the Odd Fellows Hall in Monroe Thursday afternoon and a large concourse of friends of the family were present to do honor to the remains of the sturdy pioneer. Interment was held at the Odd Fellows Cemetery.
