An American Family History

Anne E. Fox

In the 1830s settlers began arriving in Iowa from Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia. Iowa became a state in 1846.

Anne E. Fox was born about 1844 in St. Clair Township, Butler County, Ohio. She was the daughter of Levi Fox and Eliza Yerkes.

She was five when her mother died of cholera and at the time of the 1850 census. A census notation indicated that she was 'dumb.' Her name was Annaliza in the 1856 Iowa Census. She was 16 when the 1860 census was taken and a notation reads "idiotic."

She was not listed in the 1870 census.

St. Clair Township, Butler County, Ohio was organized in 1803. It included the present townships of Oxford, Milford, Wayne, Reily and Hanover and was bounded on the north by Preble County, on the east by Lemon Township, on the south by the Miami River and Ross Township, and on the west by the State of Indiana.
