I'm crowing in joy. I know all of you know the thrill of finding that
I've been 'chasing' my gggrandfather 9 years, through claims of premature
death, a photographic record proving life through ca 1915, and of a
family that seemed to move on a whim.
I posted a note 13 months ago in the Crawford County Inquiries on a blind
search (he'd been across the Mississipi in Iowa).
I'm listing this with all these lists as he is known to live in all these
So I've more cousins and a found grandpa:
I still have more things to look at, but just found the obit. of Wm. C.
Fox.... and YES it is the one and same. I have 2 obits from different
papers: here goes.... the first part is the same in both, then I will do
the second parts of each......
"William C. Fox was born in Augusta County, Virginia, in the year 1839,
and died at his home in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Sunday, September 23, 1923,
after an illness which had confinedhim to his bed for six months. He was
a Civil War Veteran, having served in the 14th Regiment West Virginia
Volunteer Infantry under the command of Col. Jacob Smith.
After the war, he removed to Iowa where he lived at McGregor for many
years. A number of years ago he removed with the family to La Crosse,
where he was well known in G.A.R. circles
His is survived by his wife, a son, Tillman of Bunnell, Florida, and a
daughter, Alice of West Virginia. There are also two stepsons, Orville
Wilder of LaCrosse, and Merrill Wilder of Preston, Minn.
The funeral services were held at the home Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. F.
C. Dixon officiating. Burial in Oak Grove Cemetery."
(first paragraph is same.... "Wm. C. Fox was............. under command
of Col. Jacob Smith"
"He was wounded in his hand so that the hand could never be used
efficiently afterward. [one of the clues I listed to help narrow the
After the war he removed to Iowa were he lived at McGregor [IA] for many
years. A number of years ago he came with the family to La Crosse where
he was well known in G.A.R. circles.
He was a police officer at Oak Grove Cemetery for a time and in that
capacity made a large circle of acquaintances.
He is survived by his wife [Martha "Alice" Scott Wilder Fox], a son,
Tillman Fox of Bunnell, Fla. and an unmarried daughter Alice Fox of West
Virginia. There are also eight grandchildren. [Actually, he had a couple
ggrandchildren then] The funeral services wer held at the house Tuesday
afternoon, the Rev. F. C. Dixon officiation. Burial in Oak Grove
so, Crystal, how's that........?
I have been to his gravesite, which is beneath a tree (as I remember)
next to his wife, Martha, my great grandmother. His stepson, Merrill,
mentioned in the obit is my grandfather, by Martha and first husband
George G. Wilder. Good ol' George is the guy I am looking for ... he left
Martha soon after the birth of my grandfather, Merrill in 1882......
might you have any hidden info on George and Martha? Or did you not know
of the marriage to Martha?
These obits are in Martha's Bible which my aunt has, and I recently saw
and made copies of some pages. I think that she may have a photo of Wm.
but I did not copy it..... I can ask her and get a copy if you want. Let
me know if you want to speak of contact anyone that knew him...... I was
thinking that some living relatives now knew him, but seeing that he died
in 1923, that limits it...... I have an aunt (with the Bible) born in
1908, so she remembers..... another living aunt is probably a few years
younger (guessing going on 85-90?) and she lives in Preston, MN>so if you
are in that area, I will give you her contact info. (The aunt with Bible
is in CA)
Well, I must go read more....... I am so excited to provide you with this
information....... and more as I find it. I would be thrilled to find
info on George Wilder! So we are not blood relatives, yet connected by
the marriage of my gr.grandmother Martha, to your gr.gr?grandfather, Wm.
Keep in touch, this could be fun! I will make copies of my info to send
Last night was a VERY happy night!

To understand the living one must commune with the dead.
I am looking for anyone who would have information about ancestory of Thov
Kjosa (Toveson, thoveson, thovson) and sons Halvor H Kjosa, Thove (Thov?)
Thoveson, and a daughter who stayed in Norway as I understand.
Also, I am looking for a John Johnson whose wife died circa 1875 - 1880 and
he married again. Children I know about are Ole (who also used the surname
of Camehaus (only spelling I have actually seen - could be Kjemhus), Frank,
John F, and daughter Isabelle (b. in St. Olaf 5/14/1883. Isabelle is my
grandmother and did not talk about her family so I am piecing what the
family knew together and this is as far as I've gone. They were in South
Dakota in 1898 to 1903(about), Ole homesteading and stayed. John F. died
and John and Isabelle went to Idaho for a time. She came back and married
Garhard Kjosa in South Dakota.
Any leads (especially on the Johnsons would be greatly appreciated.

My g-grandfather, Joseph Ringer, lived in McGregor in 1860. He enlisted in the Civil War there, and was sent to 2nd Kansas Cavalry. If you are researching the 1860 Clayton Co. Census, and see his name listed with a head of household, please let me know. I don't think he had his own place, but lived with, and worked for someone else. Thank you.
