PEEKSKILL, N.Y., June 1?
Dr. J. Russell Foshay, a physician here for thirty-five years, died today of a heart attack in near by Ossining as he was about to enter a church to attend a wedding. He was 67 years old. Dr. Foshay was born in Peekskill, the son of Nelson G. and Amanda Wessells Foshay. He received an M.D. degree in 1909 from the college of Physicians and Surgeons Columbia University. He served his internship at the French Hospital in New York. He was Westchester County Coroner for two Terms, beginning in 1912; former president of Peekskill Medical Association, a former member of the Westchester County Board of Health. Dr. Foshay leaves a widow, Mrs. Isabella Pierce Foshay; a son Harry N. Foshay, and a brother Douglas N. Foshay of Martinsville, N.J.

I found the following biography in a book titled "Biographies of Westchester County". I am still looking for the Obit for John F. Foshay to go with his wife's Emma whose obit is already on the site.

This gentleman, a member of the firm of Foshay & Brewer, dealers in hardware, coal and lumber at Mamaroneck, is one of the most enterprising business men of the place, whose well known character for promptness brings in a substantial and permanent success. He was born September 11, 1835, in the village which is still the place of residence.
His father, John Foshay, was born near White Plains, this county, passed the most of his boyhood days there, and when he was still young his parents moved to Orienta Point, Mamaroneck township, where as a farmer he passed the rest of his life, dying at the age of eighty years. In his religious principles he was a Methodist, and for several years was a trustee of the church.
Politically he was a Democrat, but was never in public politics. He married Mary Ann Brown, a native of Rye, this county, and a daughter of Nathaniel Brown and Levina Brown; and she died when about sixty-four years of age, a zealous and faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
Thomas Foshay, of French descent and grandfather of the subject of this sketch, was also a follower of the agricultural pursuits, and died at the age of seventy five years.
Mr. Foshay, our subject, was an inmate of his parental home until of age, when he engaged in the grocery business here in Mamaroneck. Continuing in this, with good success until 1881, he sold the grocery, and, forming a partnership with Rueben G. Brewer, engaged in the hardware, coal and lumber trade. The enterprising spirit, the habits of promptness, and the virtue of integrity of these gentlemen insure them a driving business. Mr. Foshay is a director in the Mamaroneck Bank. Politically he is a Republican, and in religion a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
He was united in marriage with Miss Emma C. Mosser, of New York, and they have two daughters."

Here are the obits for John and his wife:

MAMARONECK - A Good Man Passes Away
On Thursday morning passed away one of the old and reliable landmarks of the Town of Rye and the Village of Mamaroneck, John Ferris Foshay. For sixty-five years he had lived in Mamaroneck and for forty-four years had been prominently identified whith its interests. Born in Mamaroneck he began business for himself at the age of 21 and though he did not accumulate great riches rapidly, his business ventures were conservative and successful. His first venture was in the grocery business being
associated with John Davenport. The firms first business was in the same building (Main St., Rye Neck), where the solid citizen ended his business career two years ago by retiring from the firm Foshay and Brewer. He later bought out the Davenport interest in the business and then removed to the building on the Mamaroneck side of the bridge, and recently used as the Post Office
building. He then branched out in the bakery and confectionary business and for a number years did the largest business in that line of any firm in the town. Having disposed of this business, he with Mr. Reuben G. Brewer organized teh firm Foshay and Brewer coal, lumber, hardware and mill work, which has been eminently successful. This firm succeeded Messrs. George Hains & Sons. The name of the firm has always been synonym of fair dealing and integrity. The senior member was a gentleman of peculiarly kind disposition. Affable, just and indulgent, he enjoyed the full confidence of every one that knew him. He was a gentleman in all that the word implies, one of those truly grand, good men whose acquaintanceship we crave, and whose confidence we prized.
Wedded to his home and those he loved best on earth, Mr. Foshay never sought publice office. He preferred the companioinship of those who were near and dearest to him to the glamour of public life and office. Mrs. Foshay's death was due to paralysis which overtook him while on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. M. J. Hall. His wife died some six years ago and those nearest the grand old patriarch knew he never fully recovered from that bereavement. He is survived by two daughters, Miss Louise Foshay and
Mrs. M. J. Hall; one sister Miss Mary A. Foshay; and four brothers, Messrs. Nathan, Edward and William Foshay, of Mamaroneck and Mr. Israel Foshay of Noroton, Conn. Mr. Foshay was a Director in the First Natinal Bank of Mamaroneck and a member of Sheldrake Council of the Royal Arcanum: The pall bearers were all members of the Arcanum: Messrs. Thomas C. Palmer, Curtis G. Peck, Wm. Sanger ( of New Rochelle), and Louis F. Brennecke. The Rev. F. B. Upham officiated at the service at the residence at two O'clock. Interment was in the family plot in Union Cemetery.

The Port Chester Journal, Thursday April 29, 1886
Mrs. Maria Foshay, wife of John Foshay Sr., died at her residence on Tuesday about 9 o'clock, at the age of 60 years.

(Eileen's notes: This lady was the 2nd wife of John Foshay Sr. Her burial was in Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, NY. The stone says "Ann Marie wife of John Foshay". She was born February 16, 1827 and died April 27, 1886.)
