Notes for Franklin Wheeler Fox: FRANKLIN served in the American Civil War. He was a very skilled mechanic, being at one time Foreman of a wheel shop in New Haven then later in Rochester, New York. Also was a Cabinet Maker.
The following information was provided by TIMOTHY ROBERT HEUSER Jan. 5, 2002. I found in the "Genealogy Notes 2nd Edition, May, 1989", written by: JOHN ROBERT MARCELLUS II, a record of ARTHUR FOX. The record is as follows: "ARTHUR married EDITH PORTER in Bridgeport, Connecticut in October 1887. (1/2 bro.)". I am not sure, but I believe ARTHUR is the half brother of FRANKLIN WHEELER FOX and WALTER TOWER FOX?
