In Reply to: Albert Fogg--Camden, New Jersey--early 20th century by Jerrilynn Eby of 915

Skimming through "Samuel Fogg, 1628-1672, His Ancestors and Descendants," by Phyllis O. Whitten, nothing jumps out at me from the thousands of Foggs cataloged there. If you are interested in Fogg genealogy, it's the best available. (I have no stake in the book; I'm just an enthusiastic user.) Mrs. Whitten lists lots of Alberts and lots of Foggs living in Camden, NJ. There are even a couple of Alberts living in Camden in the early 20th Century, but none of the write-ups mentions the Old Dominion Sulphur Company or a pyrite mine.

The closest I see in Camden is a father-son-grandson set of Alberts. I've pasted the father's and son's write-ups below as a teaser. Since the book is available on CD as a PDF file, there may be errors in the OCR'ing, so if this sounds interesting, buy the CD. As suggested by the abbreviated lineages, you get a trace back nine generations.

b. Apr.21,1852; d. Apr.21,1919. m. Caroline Seran Blue, b. Jan.28,1854, Dorchester, N.J., d. Dec.3,1921, Camden, N.J., dau. of Lehman and Ann Caroline (Seran) Blue. (Lehman was a ship builder.)
Albert was sent to work on a farm when quite young for his room and board. He lived in Camden later, and in 1887-8 was an ice-deliverer. Then he was a commission merchant in Camden; in the fruit business in Philadelphia. He moved
to Ocean City, N.J. where he was interested in real estate.
Obituary notice: "While celebrating his 67th birthday with friends at his home in Ocean City, Albert Fogg, a retired commission merchant of this city, died of heart trouble. For 40 years he was a commission merchant at 2nd and Dock Street.
He retired five years ago, and for the two years lived at Ocean City, where he owned several hotels and the Ocean City pier.
"He lived in Camden many years, and was active in politics. He was a member of Tremble Lodge, F. and A.M., and Camden Lodge of Elks. He is survived by his widow, a son, Randolph, and a daughter, Mrs. Mahaffey, wife of Dr. J. Lynn Mahaffey, a Camden physician." (dated April 22,1919)
