Research Notes

  • from researcher Jodie Streit: Henry may have had only two marriages. According to "The Fox Line", Bulletin of Gen. Society of Old Tryon County., North Carolina, Vol XII #1, February 1984, by H. E. Hubbard, children of the first marriage (Mary Kendrick) were Henry Fox III, Joseph and Unity. Children of the 2nd marriage (Mary Claiborne) were John and William.
  • According to researcher Johnella Boynton, a "Fox Hound," he (also?) lived in Brunswick County, Virginia.
  • Dec 2013 - "the 'DNA' evidence is compelling that neither William Fox, who married Sarah Avent, or  Lt Col Richard Fox is a son of Henry Fox
