Obituary

Mozart Foss

The remains of Mozart Foss, a resident of Barton in his younger days, were brought here from Arlington, Mass., July 23d for burial in the family lot. Services were conducted at the grave and Rev. J. J. Hutchinson officiated.

Mozart Foss was the son of Seldon and Roxie Ann Foss and was born in Middlesex, Vt., in the year 1837. Early in life he came to Barton with his parents and resided for some years on a farm near Barton mountain. In 1861, he enlisted in the Civil war and went from this town. He was wounded in battle and since the close of the war had not been able to engage in any work on account of his health. For the last 30 years he has owned a home in Arlington, Mass., and has made his home there.

He was one of 12 children, the only remaining one living being Mrs. J. F. Overmeyer of Seneca, Kans. Another brother who died several years ago was Harlow Foss who resided in Barton. Mr. Foss is also survived by several nephews and nieces.
