    The Fox Sampler of the Family of Nathaniel and Kitturah (McFarland) Fox
    The photograph on this page was provided by Joleen Streit, a descendant of Nathaniel and Kitturah [McFarland] Fox.

    Jodie Streit [Mary Joleen "Jodie" (Marks) Streit], a descendant of Nathaniel Fox and Kitturah McFarland, kindly provided this image of this sampler that was passed down through her family and is in the possession of her mother. She dates it to between 1833 and 1836.

    The first 2 lines are of the upper case alphabet (A-Z). It then lists family members and their birth dates:

    "Nathaniel Fox Was Born June 1, 1805; Kitturah Fox Was Born June 10, 1812; James M. Fox Was Born July 4, 1831; John McF Fox Was Born May 4, 1833"

    The last 2 lines are the lower case alphabet. It is signed NFK, who is unknown but theorized it possibly could have been a relative of Nathaniel's mother, Mary Carver King.

    This is a document featuring 65 generations of descendants of Godwulf (born circa AD 80) to Dennis Brumm. Through the Fox family genealogy, much of which was provided by researcher Jodie Streit, plus some research I did backing it out from the royal family of England (to which the Fox family is connected, including Norse legends which can never be proven, this is the furthest back my database goes. It is not posted to be taken as "fact" in the earliest of generations/ (Note: this document is in .pdf format.)
