Descendants of Charles Fox  
 

Generation No. 1

 

      1.  Charles1 Fox1 was born 1814 in Ireland, and died Unknown.  He married Amanda Gilbert1, daughter of Ozias Gilbert and Eliza Goodrich.  She was born 1822 in New York, and died Unknown.

 

Notes for Charles Fox:

Charles Fox was born in Ireland in 1814.  Book A, Alien Reports of St. Lawrence County, New York State contains data showing he applied for Naturalization as a U.S. citizen on 12 February 1840.  Personal information in the report indicates he was born in Ireland C. 1815 and had an occupation as a farmer in 1840.  Charles had arrived in the U.S. in 1827, when he would have been about twelve.  The report has a column titled "When Admitted (as a citizen)," but only a check mark is in the appropriate column rather than a specific date.  The check mark is probably an entry to repeat a date immediately above, which date was 17 September, 1844.

 

Since non-native minor children became citizens when their parents were naturalized, it would appear that:

 

A.    Charles' parents did not opt for naturalization after emigration, or

B.     Charles may have emigrated from Ireland to the U.S. by himself, or with other unknown family members.

 

A wide-ranging search has, to date, failed to surface more information on Charles' emigration.  The reader should understand most immigrant arrival records are in no way complete.  Further, if Irish citizens wished to emigrate to Canada, there were no prohibitions against this in the early 1800s.  And once in Canada, only the St. Lawrence river had to be crossed before landing in New York State.  Certainly few records were kept of such events.  Though it is not at all clear Charles came to St. Lawrence County from Canada, this is a possibility.

 

The only other record in hand regarding Charles Fox is the 1850 U. S. Census Report for New York State, St. Lawrence County, Norfolk Township, Page 298, Entry 12, Family 109. This shows Charles, aged 36 from Ireland and Amanda, aged 28 from New York.  Also shown are William, aged 4 and Ozias Fox, aged one both being listed as from New York.

 

From other family records, it is known Charles and Amanda had other children, i.e.,  Hiram, born1851 at Raymondville, NY, in the Norfolk Township.  Daughters Kathleen and Clara were born to the couple, but other specifics for them we do not know.

 

 

     

Children of Charles Fox and Amanda Gilbert are:

      2             i.   Katherine2 Fox, died Unknown.

      3            ii.   Clara Fox, died Unknown.

      4           iii.   William Fox1, born 1846 in New York; died Unknown.

      5           iv.   Ozias Fox1, born June 16, 1849 in New York; died 1857.

+    6            v.   Hiram Dwinell Fox, born March 12, 1851 in Raymondville, New York; died January 05, 1932 in Wichita, Kansas.

 

 

Generation No. 2

 

      6.  Hiram Dwinell2 Fox (Charles1) was born March 12, 1851 in Raymondville, New York, and died January 05, 1932 in Wichita, Kansas.  He married Elizabeth F Baldwin November 15, 1879, daughter of John Baldwin and Martha Osborn.  She was born February 05, 1860 in West Branch, Cedar County, Iowa2,3, and died January 13, 1935 in Wichita, Kansas4.

Obituary of Hiram D. Fox, Wichita Beacon, Wichita, Kansas (January 6, 1932)

 

City Employee for 15 Years is Dead

 

Hiram D. Fox, 80, Dies Tuesday After Illness Extending Over 3 Years

 

Hiram D. Fox, 80 of Wichita for the past 22 years, died at his home Tuesday, following a stroke of paralysis suffered last Friday.  Mr. Fox had suffered two light strokes during the past three years, but his condition was not considered serious until the third stroke Friday.  He was conscious up until a short time before his death.

 

Mr. Fox was born in Raymondville, N.Y., March 12, 1851, and moved to Wichita in 1904.  For 15 years he had been sidewalk and pavement inspector for the city, and was known as one of the most careful and painstaking employees the city ever had.  "Work had to come up to specifications," old time employees of the city, men who had worked with Mr. Fox, said yesterday.

 

He was a member of the Friends church and a member of Masonic lodge No. 99, A.F.&A.M.

 

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Fox, and three sons, Norman G. Fox, of Tulos, La., C. Raymond Fox of Tucson, Ariz., and J. Leslie Fox of Wichita, manager of radio station KFH.

 

Funeral services will be held at the Gill mortuary Thursday at 10 am and Masonic services will be conducted at the grave.

 

Notes for Elizabeth F Baldwin:

Obituary of Elizabeth Baldwin, Wichita Beacon, Wichita, Kansas (January 14, 1935)

 

Mrs. Elizabeth Fox Claimed by Death in Wichita Sunday

 

Mrs. Elizabeth Fox, 76, died Sunday at 3:15 a.m. following a short illness.

 

Her death occurred before her son, J. Leslie Fox, formerly manager of radio station DFH but now with station WJR of Cleveland could reach her bedside.  He hurried toward Wichita by plane when his mother's condition became critical.  The plan was due at 2:15 a.m. but did not reach here until 4:30 a.m. owing to bad weather en route.

 

Mrs. Fox had resided here for the past 30 years.  She was the widow of the late Hiram D. Fox, formerly with the city engineering department.  She was born in West Branch, Iowa.  During her long residence in Wichita, she had made many close friends and was widely known and liked by everyone who had made her acquaintance.

 

Three Sons Survive

 

In addition to her son of Cleveland, she is survived by two other sons, Raymond G., Tucson, Ariz., and Norman G., Tullos, La.  They were en route to Wichita by train Sunday.

 

Funeral services will be held at the Gill mortuary Monday at 1:30 p.m. Dr. C.O. Whitely of University Friends church will officiate.  Burial will be in College Hill Memorial Lawns cemetery.

 

J. Leslie Fox was one of the radio pioneers of Wichita.  He helped found KFH and remained with the station until long after it became a part of the Columbia chain.  He left Wichita a few years ago to join the staff of a station at Nashville and from there went to Cleveland where he is advertising manager for WJR, one of the best known stations in the county.
