Name:   Edwin Andrus Galusha

From:  The Naperville Sun, Naperville, Illinois
Date:  Thursday, April 24, 1941

Edwin Andrus Galusha, youngest of the three children of Jacob Andrus Galusha and Pamela Kennecut Foote, was born in Winfield Township, Du Page county, on his father's farm near Warrenville, Feb. 20, 1851, and departed this life April 19, 1941, at his home in Naperville.

He began school in the Warrenville academy, and later attended several private schools for boys, it being his father's hope that he enter Lombard University in Galesburg, Ill., but owing to the elder Mr. Galusha's failing health he did not go to college but left school to be with his father and brother Ezra on the farm

On Dec. 8, 1875, he was united in marriage to Miss Elvira Scofield of Wheaton, and to them were born seven children, six of whom, a son and five daughters, survive their father.  Their son George passed away in July 1931.  Mrs. Galusha passed from this life on March 28, 1935.

Soon after celebrating the golden anniversary of their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Galusha and his brother came to Naperville to establish their home, and, except for a year in Alabama on his uncle's plantation, soon after the Civil War, and two years in California on relatives ranches prior to his marriage, Mr. Galusha has always lived in this vicinity.

For this reason, no comments upon his long life and very many admirable traits of character are necessary, nor could they add to the esteem in which his memory will be held.

After services at the home Monday afternoon, he was laid to rest on April 21, 1941, in the Warrenville cemetery, where all of his departed near ones have rested since pioneer times.
