Some time later the father bought two hundred and eighty-five acres oaf land in the southwestern part of Jackson township, and there the family made their permanent home.

He died February 18, 1875, leaving his widow and five children, John B., George, Sarah Ann, William and Amassa. The widow remained on the farm for three or four years, and then spent the rest of her days with her children, her death occurring in 1888."

Noblesville Ledger, 26 Feb 1875, page 1. Scan received from Hamilton
East Public Library, 18 Sept 2017.
Last week, as our forms were on the press, we made room for, and published as a rumor, the death of Jesse M. Foulke, from internal hemorrhage. The report was but too true, and it is this week our painful task to confirm it. Mr. Foulke was about seventy years of age, and had been in feeble health for several years. During his attendance at court as a witness in the recent trial of his son, he was so weak as to be scarcely able to stand up in giving his testimony. And immediately after returning home he was attacked and Thursday of last week died. Mr. F. was a native of Pennsylvania, and first settled in Ohio, from whence he moved to this county settling on the farm where he died, we believe. He was esteemed as one of our best citizens, and his death is regretted by scores of warm friends throughout the county. We have been unable to get any reliable data as to his life and services, and would be obliged to any one acquainted with the facts to furnish them for use in our columns.

Rumored Death of Jesse Foulke.
It was rumored on the street Thursday evening that Jesse Foulke, father of Amasa, had expired at his home during the day of hemorrhage of lungs. We hear this as our forms are going to press, and have not the time to investigate as to its correctness.
