GUNNER'S MATE FRANCIS FOY SAILS FOR SIBERIA
Gunner's Mate Francis Foy, well known Saranac Lake man, is on his way to Siberia. He sailed recently from New York. For several weeks Mr. Foy's relatives at Saranac Lake had sought to locate him. A telegram came this week from his uncle, Frank Foy, of Passaic, N. J., stating that the young sailor had called on him before sailing and said that he was bound for Siberia. Practically all of the men of the Pelham Bay Training Station were to make the same trip, so that it is possible that other men from this section went.
