      There were Foggys in New London vicinity as early as 1870, since the Atlas of that date showed land in Section 3 northwest of town owned by William and John Foggy.

      Adam L. Foggy (1870-1964) was boon at Lomax, Illinois, the son of Adam and Elizabeth Lomax Foggy. The Lomax family gave the town [in Illinois] its name. Adam L. Foggy [Jr] married Addie Davis (1876-1972) of Wayland, and their children were Lomax, Robert, and Elizabeth Houghton. In 1922, [the] Adam Foggys moved to town, buying the home of Dr. Ritchey on South Pine Street, where they lived for nearly fifty years. Lomax Foggy married Miriam Rhineheimer, and they have lived on the Foggy farm northwest of New London since 1920. Their daughters were Virginia (Mrs. J. A.) Stockton, and Mary Lomax (Mrs. Elmer) Keuhnle. Robert Foggy married Birdie Nugen (1907-1959), and their children were Nancy (Mrs. John) Smith and Robert Adam III (1940-1952). John, another son of Adam and Elizabeth Lomax Foggy (sic: son of James and Margaret Afflect), married Elizabeth Kleinfelter, and lived northwest of New London.
