The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, June 22, 1905

MRS. CAROLINE FOULKS of English Township departed this life on Sunday, June 18, 1905, after a brief illness with typhus fever. On account of the contagious nature of the disease the funeral was private and interment took place in the Brownlee Cemetery on Monday. Memorial services will be held later on, upon announcement.

CAROLINE ELIZABETH SEVERN was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, on December 16, 1842. She with her parents and family came to Iowa in 1856. On December 4, 1870 she was married to WILLIS B. FOULKS. To them were born eight children, four of whom died in infancy. Those who survive are SADIE, JOHN, VERA and JAMES, the youngest being in his twenty-first year. MRS. FOULKS had been for many years an earnest, faithful Christian. She possessed a pleasant disposition and made warm friends of all with whom she became acquainted. She was devoted to her family and her highest happiness came in being helpful to others. Two sisters, MRS. DAVID DAVIS of Knoxville and MRS. C.S. MCMULIN of Albia, and a brother, JAMES H. SEVERN of O'keen, Okla., are still living. All of the sorrowing relatives have the deep sympathy of the many friends.
