Fox family

  • CA PANB MC341
  • Collection
  • 1864-1979

This collection consists of a small notebook or diary in which Fannie Fox recorded information about the Fox family's trip by car from Fredericton, New Brunswick to Flanders, Ontario via Montreal, Kingston, Toronto, London, and various points in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Oregon (1925). There are also genealogical notes on the Fox family, a postcard dated 1920 from Fannie to Stella, and a copy of a 1979 letter from Stella Fox to Heidi Hughes Little pertaining to Tommy Hughes, a child of the Middlemore Home who was adopted by the Brunswick W. Fox family. The letter also refers to Tommy's younger brother Ernest Hughes, who was adopted by a family on the north side of the St. John River opposite Fredericton, and to a third adopted child, Roland Summers.

Lastly, there is a daybook, dating from 1864-1867, which records purchases made at a general mercantile establishment located at Dumfries or Poquiock[Pokiok?], in York County. The name of the proprietor is unknown. The business sold household goods, foodstuffs, clothing, hardware, yard goods, lumber, shingles, and other merchandise. The daybook was used as a scrapbook, probably in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs have been moved to the Photograph Section (P94).
