Death of Mrs. Caroline Nash

Sunday, December 27, marked the passing away of Mrs. Caroline Foster Nash, one among Havana's oldest and most respected residents. Mrs. Nash has been in very poor health for several weeks past and her death was not unexpected by her many friends and relatives.


Mrs. Caroline Foster Nash, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oren Foster, was born in Havana, Ill., April 17, 1838, and her entire life was spent here and in this vicinity. She was married to James Nash on July 17, 1864, and was left a widow by his death which occurred some four years ago. She leaves to mourn her death two daughters, Mrs. Clara Spencer of this city and Mrs. Charles Hosford of Henrietta, Texas. Besides these of her immediate family, she leaves two brothers, Judson Foster of Plainville, Kas., and George Foster of Lincoln; two half brothers, Anson and Rufus Low, and one sister, Mrs. Jacob Wheeler of Springfield, Ill. She was a consistent member of the Christian church in this city and in her life has been an earnest and devoted woman. Her life will be greatly missed and her departure mourned by many who shared her friendship and love.

The funeral occurred from the Central Christian church on Tuesday afternoon conducted by Rev. O. C. Bolman and the remains were laid to rest in Laurel Hill cemetery.
