10-17-1858 Henry FOGELSONG m. Sarah E MOHLER
Death records of sons Chas & Geo confirm this parentage.
I'm assuming you have all census. The correct name is always a plus!

1900 Henry is in Stark Co IL b 12-1827 MD Ger Ger; divorced.
Also sons Francis & Geo res. 1900 Stark IL
Henry's dau Jessie FLYNN [Mike] also d Stark IL
1910 Henry is living with Jessie/Mike, and is now widowed.
He prob d 1910-20, and possibly bur same cemetery as other members of the family. Sarah could be anywhere.

1860 MD cenus the family is listed as VOGELSONG.

I don't know if this is your Henry, as it doesn't list ages etc.
3-2-1887 Henry - Addie REMINGTON
3-2-1892 Henry - Ellen E COLLINSON
3-4-1885 George - Edna ALBRO

If this is your Henry, Sarah may have d 1880-1887, and he was divorced from Ellen????

Obituary of Maude Foglesong

A telegram came Monday announcing the sudden death of Maude Foglesong at Wahoo, Neb., where with her mother, Mrs. Edna Foglesong, she had been visiting for the last three weeks. They left Nebraska with the body yesterday morning for Toulon, and it is expeted to arrive here on the passenger from the west this morning. The body will be taken to the home of Michael Flynn, where it will rest until Thursday, when the funeral services will be held from the Congregational church. The hour for the services had not been set at the time of going to press.

Miss Foglesong was born in Toulon about 19 years ago, and spent nearly her entire life in our city. She was a graduate of the Toulon high school.

For the last six months, she has had employemnt as saleslady in Bond Bros. store at Kewanee, but visited in Toulon for a short time before her departure for Nebraska.

For several years past she had been in declining health, but few thot the end to be so near, and the news of her death came as a shock to her many friends here. Her elder sister died about two years ago.

Her father, George Foglesong, and her grandfather, Henry Foglesong, left last night for Rock Island to meet the mother on her sad journey home to bury her child.
