Freeman Ruggles Foster1

M, #1668, b. 14 April 1816, d. 14 April 1898
     Freeman Ruggles Foster was born on 14 April 1816 at Rutland, Worcester Co., MA.1 He was the son of Heman Foster and Lucy Stone.1 Freeman Ruggles Foster married Lucy Henry Francis, daughter of Caleb Francis and Rebecca Ball, on 3 June 1840 at Barre, Worcester Co., MA.1 Freeman Ruggles Foster died on 14 April 1898 at Rutland, Worcester Co., MA, at age 82.1
     From an obituary: "He was eighty-two years old to-day. With the exception of five years, he has lived in Rutland. He is son of Heman and Lucy (Stone) Foster. and was born in the Zach. Carpenter house, now owned by George C. Putnam, in the western part of the town.

"His father, Heman Foster died when Freeman was but a boy. The children were placed with different families. Freeman lived with Hazen White in the old guard house, which stood near the old barracks. He attended the district school and earned his own living from the time he was eight years old. At the age of sixteen, he went to Shrewsbury to learn the shoemakers' trade, working for Edward Pratt. In those days boys were obliged to give a year's time while learning the trade, receiving only their board. Returning to Rutland, he worked at his trade about thirty years, making boots and shoes for firms in surrounding towns. The material was brought here and finished product returned to them.

"After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Foster lived on a farm in that part of the town called New Boston, where they remained until thirty-three years ago. when they removed to their present home. on Main street, in the center village. Mr. Foster has held several town offices, holding the offices of Treasurer, Collector of Taxes and Constable for sixteen years; Overseer of the Poor, three years; Assessor, five years; Auditor, four years. The latter office he held last year, refusing to be considered as a candidate any longer. During the early part of his service as Treasurer and Collector, the office was let out to the lowest bidder, and the compensation ranged from $450 down. Mr. Foster did the work for $150, which was the salary established by the town, after abolishing the auction system.

"Mr. Foster relates an incident in reference to the auction system, at one of the annual meetings. The auctioneer accepted a bid of $16, and after it was struck off, two claimed the bid. The auctioneer declared he would accept lower bids, which were made until it was brought down until one man agreed to collect the taxes that year without any salary. The other bidder immediately agreed to pay the town one dollar for the privilege, which bid was accepted, and the taxes were collected without any cost to the town. In the beginning of Mr. Foster's term as collector. bills were paid once a year. In the fall, when taxes could be collected with much less work than under the present system of paying bills monthly, as under the yearly payment, those to whom the town was indebted would turn the account toward their taxes, and this would also leave an amount of money on hand, which could be put out at interest for the benefit of the treasurer. About eight years ago the auction system was abolished, and a stipulated salary voted each year.

"Mr. Foster has been able to work up a good sized wood-pile in spite of his age, and was seen on the street nearly every day the past winter, no matter how severe the weather was. The Free Public Library has been kept in Mr. Foster's house the past twenty-five years. Mrs. Foster filling the position of librarian, and Mr. Foster assisting her some in the discharge of her duties. The day was spent quietly at home. Letters were received from his children expressing a desire to be with him on the eighty-second anniversary of his birth."1
