Va., where he had since been a deputy constable. Besides his wife, Mary Headley Fox, he leaves one son, Herschel Fox, of Akron, Ohio; one grandson, Sanford Luther Fox, of Pursglove, W. Va.; three brothers, Taylor Fox and William Fox, of Kirby, and Daily Fox, of Los Angeles, Cal.; and two sisters, Mrs. George W. Patterson, of Waynesburg, and Mrs. Jane Walters, of Spraggs. A brother, C. C. Fox, of Morrisville, died three weeks ago. Mr. Fox was a member of the Westover Methodist Protestant Church.
