John Kendrick FOX and Margaret Jane CARTER were married on 20 June 1827 in Rutherford County, Tennessee.6 Margaret Jane CARTER was born on 18 January 1814 in Tennessee.16 She died on 16 June 1911 at the age of 97 in Jackson County, Tennessee. She was buried in Rash Cemetery, Jackson County, Tennessee.

Margaret may have been a few years older than what she told the census taker. Doubt that she was thirteen when she married, but she probably was very young.

John Kendrick FOX and Margaret Jane CARTER had the following children:

Rachel FOX6,24 was born on 14 November 1832.6,16 She died on 18 June 1908 at the age of 75.6

Rachel never married. The 1900 census gives her birth as May 1833. She was living with her sister Nancy Rash.

Mary FOX was born about 1834.6,16

iii.

Jane Margaret FOX.

iv.

Meredith FOX16 was born about 1836 in Tennessee.6,16

An Arthur is listed as age 20 with this family in 1860. The age may be off since Rachel was listed as 22 and she was in fact 28. There was no Meredith found.

Arthur A. FOX24,25 was born in January 1840 in Tennessee.24 He died on 19 June 1911 at the age of 71 in Jackson County, Tennessee.25

1880, Jackson Co, TN, District 12, Hh 9
Arthur Fox age 35 [born 1845]
Raytchel Fox, age 48 [born 1832], Sister.
They lived next door to Meredith A. Fox, a first cousin.

In the 1900 census, Arthur A. is listed as a brother-in-law to Thomas Rash who was married to Nancy Fox. Arthur has not been listed in other compilations of this family and the birth doesn't work out with other children, but he apparently does belong in the family.

I found a possible Death Certificate for Mr. A. A. Fox who died June 19, 1911. He was apparently 71 years old and Single. He died of Heart Trouble and was said born in Jackson Co TN.

There is a death certificate for Ben B. Fox that could be this man. His age was estimated as about 82, or born 1837 [he wasn't quite that old] and he was said to have been married at the time of his death, 13 Feb 1919. Newton Fox was the informant and didn't know the name of his father but said his mother was a Carter. He was supposed to have paralysis of some kind - he was sick about two weeks but had no doctor. He was buried Fox GraveYard.

His grave marker gives a birth as Dec 1838.
