Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 412, West Point Township, White County, Indiana

"WILLIAM E. FOX was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania, February 12, 1843, and is one of twelve children born to WASHINGTON and MARY (KENNEDY) FOX; six of these children are living - DAVID, WILLIAM, GEORGE, PERRY, LYDIA, and MARY. The father of WILLIAM was born in March, 1817; was a lifelong farmer, and now lives in Greene County, Pennsylvania; WILLIAM's paternal grandmother is also living. When twenty-three, WILLIAM removed to Livingston County, Illinois, where he resided ten years, and in March, 1876, came to his present location. In August, 1861, he enlisted in the Seventh Virginia Infantry; he took part in the battle of Romney, West Virginia, and was the first member of the regiment to be wounded; he also participated in the battle of Antietam, and was mustered out in March, 1863. On November 4, 1869, he was married to EFFIE G. ROBINSON, by whom he has two children - ESTELLA and JOHN J. MR. FOX now resides on GRAND PRAIRIE, four and a half miles southeast of Wolcott, on a farm of 320 acres, all under cultivation and fenced, with good buildings and improvements. He is an honorable and esteemed citizen."
