  1. Nellie Fox married to my g.uncle, James Fred Page - born 04.1.1887 - died 06.16.1968 in Henderson County,Tenn. Nellie Fox died 09.16.1917. Their children were Willie Page, Estie Page, Amos Marlin Lozo Page - born 12.18.1912 - died 01.19.1971, Oscar Wesley Page - born 10.11.1916 - died 01.02.1924.

  2. Hi there...George Carter Fox was my great-grandfather. I've done a fair amount of research on and I've also paid for the DNA testing there. I still live in the general area and if I can help I will. I've not been able to trace the male Fox line back beyond William Buchanan (making a guess that Samuel was his father).

  3. I am tracing my lineage back and, in the Fox line, end at Alice Fox Knight (1896-1941). Her obituary indicates that she was born in Rushing Creek in addition to living and dying there. She rests in Hendon cemetery.The only other Fox in the Hendon cemetery listed online is Almedia Fox (1865-1913), who is said to have been married to William Hardin Fox (born in 1865). I would love any assistance taking this further through the Fox family line. Thank you!
