About Annie Corsina George (Fox)

Annie Corsina Fox was an eighteen-year-old Australian girl who had been orphaned and was living with an uncle when she became enamored with Henry George. The uncle, a prosperous, strong-minded man, was opposed to his niece's impoverished suitor. But the couple, defying him, eloped and married during late 1861, with Henry dressed in a borrowed suit and Annie bringing only a packet of books. The marriage was a happy one and four children were born to them. Fox's mother was Irish Catholic, and while George remained an Evangelical Protestant, the children were raised Catholic. On November 3, 1862 Annie gave birth to future United States Representative from New York, Henry George, Jr. (1862–1916). Early on, even with the birth of future sculptor, Richard F. George (1865–September 28, 1912), the family was near starvation, but George's increasing reputation and involvement in the newspaper industry lifted them from poverty. Their other two children were both daughters. The first was Jennie George, (c. 1867 - 1897), later to become Jennie George Atkinson. George's other daughter was Anna Angela George, (b. 1879), who would become mother of both future dancer and choreographer, Agnes de Mille [5] and future actress Peggy George, (who was born Margaret George de Mille).
