After living four score and eight years, William Finley, father of J. H. Finley, the carpet cleaner, died Thursday evening at the residence of his son on Mead street.

Elizabeth Foglesong
Dayton Journal – April 12, 1855


A young girl named Elizabeth Foglesong, whose parents live near Peru, Ind., and who has been living with some friends in this vicinity, drowned herself yesterday morning, in a pond about five miles below Dayton. The water in the pond was stagnant, filled with moss, and not more than three feet deep. When found, she was lying upon her back, her sun bonnet drawn over her face, her hands just under the water, and her feet close to the shore.

The causes which induced the [illegible] are entirely unknown. On Monday evening she seemed to be in good spirits; but on Tuesday, not quite so lively as usual. About 8 o'clock in the morning, she put on her bonnet, and left the house, as was supposed, to visit a neighbor. In passing along the road, some of her friends called to her from their houses, but she returned no answer. Her absence having caused apprehensions for her safety, search was made, but the body was not found till Wednesday morning.

She was engaged to a young man in the neighborhood, and was understood to have been on good terms with him at the time she destroyed herself.

An inquest was held by Coroner Richards, and the facts above stated were elicited by the examination of witnesses.

Dayton Journal – April 14, 1855

We had a visit yesterday from a young man who resides near Peru, Indiana, and is well acquainted with the parents and family of Elizabeth Foglesong, whose death by her own act, we were pained to record on Thursday. The parents of Elizabeth formerly resided in this vicinity, and she was related to several of the most respectable families in the county. She is described as possessing much personal beauty, and a remarkably cheerful, happy disposition. She came to visit her friends some time last summer, with the intention of returning home in the Fall, but a courtship and a marriage engagement induced her to delay her return till she could do so as a bride, and in company with her husband. But the marriage was deferred from time to time, even after the day was fixed and all things were ready, until, receiving intelligence from home that two of her married sisters, with their families, were about to leave for Kansas, she determined to go out and see them before their departure. A friend of the family came in, and it was arranged that Elizabeth should return with him on last Wednesday morning. Her preparations were all made on Monday, and she was in her usual spirits during the day. At night her lover visited her and remained until a late hour. The next morning at breakfast, she was gloomy and depressed, and soon after left the house to accomplish the destruction of her life.

The belief of her friends and neighbors, as we gather from several sources, is, that the unfortunate girl had been betrayed, as many have seen before her; that she had abandoned the hope of inducing her lover to fulfill his promise, and fearful of appearing in the presence of her mother, whose scrutiny might detect her real condition, she drowned herself in that stagnant pond. It is a sad history, but it is one which is becoming far too common in our land. The fate of him, who of old "betrayed innocent blood," might in many cases be a fitting conclusion of the life of the betrayer of woman's confidence and the destroyer of innocence and virtue.

We have learned some few facts no heretofore stated, in regard to the suicide. The unfortunate girl was visiting her uncle, Mr. John Hiser; it was from his house that she sat out on her fearful errand. It was supposed during the whole of Tuesday, that she would return, and it was not until Wednesday morning that fears for her safety were expressed and search made to recover her body. The very pond in which she lay was passed by Mr. Hiser on Tuesday evening, and he noticed the pieces of rotten wood floating about the spot near which the body was found next day. Search was first made in the river, when Mrs. Fleming, one of the party of neighbors, determined to go up to the place at which Elizabeth was last seen, near a railway crossing, and discover if she could, by foot prints in the dust, which way the girl had gone. She found tracks, followed them to the pond, which was a short distance off, and discovered the clothing of the drowned girl above the surface of the water, which was not over two feet deep.

The parents of the deceased girl, both of whom are quite advanced in years, and strongly attached to their daughter, are now expecting her return home. How great will be their disappointment and their grief, when the intelligence of her death, and the circumstances attending it, shall reach them?
