About Virginia Lafayette Fox

n 1856, Fox resigned from the navy, and married Virginia Woodbury, daughter of Levi Woodbury of New Hampshire, a judge and leading New England Jacksonian Democrat. Mrs. Fox's sister married Montgomery Blair, thus connecting Fox to another prominent political family. Until the secession crisis, Fox remained in Massachusetts as an agent of the Bay State Mills in Lawrence. The crisis, however, brought him to Washington, where he unveiled a plan for relieving the federal garrison at Fort Sumter. President James Buchanan rejected his proposal, but Lincoln's inauguration gave Fox a second and more favorable opportunity to present his project.
