About a year ago he married Miss Maud Alexander, of Scott's Hill, who survives him. The deceased is also survived by his parents, three brothers and two sisters. The young- man's parents, were here and accompanied tha remains to Scott's Hill. Mr. ;Foy was injured in a runaway last 'Monday a week ago. He fell from a wagon and the wheel passed over his stomach.
