The Parents of William

Williamís Early Years

Bill Fogan apparently never married. At the time of the 1901 census he was 28 and living in the same house as his widowed mother and worked as a mason for the Forrest company, earning 200 dollars annually (per 1901 census). Some ten years later, he had a bedroom on the upper floor in the James Forrest household.

His First World War enlistment paper (in the photo album) describes him as florid of complexion with brown eyes and hair, standing five foot nine inches tall, and enlisting at the late age of 40 years. His younger brother John also served overseas in the same war.

The Final Years for William

DIED- William Fogan, suddenly at the home of his brother, John Fogan, Newcastle, where he was visiting. He had been making his home with his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. James T. Forrest. He was a mason and was employed with Mr. Forrest. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. James Fogan, Newcastle, and a veteran of the World War. Three brothers and three sisters survive: John, James and Robert and Mrs. Forrest, Newcastle; Mrs. Harry Smallwood, Moncton, and Mrs. A. C. Langmaid, Boston. Burial was in the Miramichi Cemetery.

William died on a Monday at age 49 and was interred at Miramichi cemetery by Rev. McLean.
