While looking for information on a different Albert Henry Fox, I came across something you had already found.

"Fox, Albert Henry

Albert Henry Fox was born near Bellvideere, Ogle County, Illinois, April 30, 1862, where he resided until eight years of age, when he moved with his parents to Clarion, Wright County, Iowa. On August 25, 1886 he was married to Miss Jennie Pearl, and to them have been born 5 children; Raymond C., age 17, Ellen M., age 9, Etta M., age 7, Warren R., age 4, and baby Verna age 15 months. All of whom are left with their mother to mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father, who has gone on before. Mr. Fox came to Harrington six years ago, where he joined the Knights of Pythias and Forester lodges, the members of which have most kindly and faithfully taken care of him through 13 months of sickness. He was first attacked with pneumonia, followed by blood poison complicated with an hereditary blood disease, and when on the 8th of March, he was stricken with shingles, the intense suffering caused by that disease was more than his weakened constitution could withstand, and at 8 PM March 24th he went to sleep and quietly passed to the great beyond where suffering is no more. Many times during the last days of his sickness he talked about what “the boys,” meaning his lodge brothers, and especially Dr Gunning were doing for him. (Citizen-Mar 24, 1905)"
