The Galesburg 'Register and Republican' of Saturday, November 1st, contains the following:
Miss Belle FOSGATE, daughter of the late Mr. Blanchard FOSGATE, whose death and burial occurred this week, also died yesterday and will be buried from the "First Church" at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. It will be remembered that a son of Mr. FOSGATE, a young man, also died only a few weeks ago. The death of Mr. FOSGATE and Miss FOSGATE are attributed principally to excessive grief, and are therefore particularly sad. Mrs. FOSGATE, two sons and a daughter are now all of the family that remain.
Mr. Blanchard FOSGATE was a brother of Mrs. Louis JORGENSON of this city. Miss Belle FOSGATE, the young lady whose death is announced in the above paragraph, spent a portion of last winter in this city, and was well known to many of our young people. The circumstances surrounding the death of Miss FOSGATE are particularly sad, and will cause regret in the heart of every one who knew her.
