Elijah Fox, father of Sarah Fox-Lee-Williamson and the source of a lot of frustrated searching on my part and that of several other researchers in the family, can be safely assumed identified now.
Based on Autosomal DNA matching, I have linked at least 62 of us together. 28 of those are descendants of Elijah’s daughter Sarah, and 3 from Sarah’s sister Adaline as a cross-check.
The rest are from other known children of William Fox and Frances Paine. We have 7 confirmed matches from their son Moses, 7 from their son Daniel, 9 from daughter Nancy, 3 from daughter Rachel, 1 each from daughters Mary and Sarah and 1 from son WIlliam Childers Fox.
William is presumed the son of Hugh Fox and Nancy Bridges and we have several matches leading back to William’s brother James and 7 leading to his brother Moses.
I feel like this is a lock at this time. I have not followed all the paper yet, but there is so much here that it just feels like solid evidence.
