Looking for any info for Bishop Cyrus David Foss. Bishop married Mary Everts Bradley in Salisbury, Ct on March 25, 1856. They had 3 children, Mary Garretson Foss, born July, 1857 at Chester, NY and Frances Taft Foss, born Aug 27, 1861 in Brooklyn, NY. Mary died Sept 7, 1863 apparently in childbirth. Her son, Cyrus William Foss was born on the date of her death, and died Oct 8, 1863, living just one month and one day. Bishop Foss was the first Methodist minister in the State of Connecticut. He, as a Bishop, was President of Weslyan University, Middletown, CT inaugrated on Oct 26, 1875, and served until June 22, 1880.
It is not known if he remarried. or any further on his daughters.
Mary Everts Bradley was a sister to my gg-grandfather. I may be contacted via my email address.
