Hello Rob, Bob and all,

I was going through my data on the Fox family and ran across this page of
data (below)which seems to apply in your discussion. I cannot account for
the full veracity of the data, but it was part of a large collection of
William D. McCain of Hattisburg, Mississippi which was published in 1975. He
is a descendant of Henry Fox and Anne West.

Best regards,

John Fox
Winston-Salem, NC
