Joseph L. Fox

Joseph proved up two quarters very near Wages in 1916, and Mrs. Joslin wrote in December that the Fox family had sold it - were to have an auction December 20, 1916.

Miss Alice Fox was a teacher in District 32 in 1917.  This is about fifteen miles northeast of Wages, so she might not be related.

He might be the Joseph L. Fox born February 1882 in Iowa, in 1900 living with father William M. Fox in Frontier County, Nebraska.  This Joseph in 1910 Frontier County was married to Jennie M. Fox, 29, and they have Vernon 4 and five-month Ethel M..  Father William M. 61 is with them.

In 1920 Joseph and Jennie are in Madera County, California, with Vernon, Ethel, and have added Leroy 6 and Glen 2.

Probably William is buried in Arbor Vitae cemetery in Madera County - 1848-1925

There's a Jennie Yocum in 1900 Frontier County - her mother's maiden name was MAYO -She was a granddaughter of Hannah Mayo - and it looks like her widowed father William Yocum is with them, along with Hannah's children, including Laura C, Mary L. and James G. Mayo. Hannah's oldest son John had Mary, William, Herbert,  Freddie, Harvey C. , and Irene .  .

  Ida E. Mayo Yocum is buried in Bailey Cemetery, Fulton County, Illinois - December 17, 1861 - August 25, 1881 - children Jennie May Yocum 1880-1960.

Jennie's California record has her born October 3, 1879 in Illinois, dying in Merced County October 11, 1960.

So Jennie came to Wages near her cousin Herbert.
