Descendants of Charles Fox
The report was generated with The Master Genealogist (Gold Version) which I personally recommend for proper genealogical collection and publication purposes.
1. Charles1 Fox; born circa 1815 in Ireland (Charles Fox household, 1850 Census, Norfolk, County of St. Lawrence, New York, page 298, dwelling 2, family 2, In custody of Richard N. Fox.) (County Clerk, St. Lawrence County, 48 Court Street, Canton, New York 13617, Alien Reports Made Under the Acts of Congress Relative to Naturalization, In custody of Captain Richard Thornton Fox, 2412 Sterling Point Drive, Portsmouth, Virginia. Hereinafter cited as New York Naturalization Record.); married Amanda Gilbert, daughter of Ozias Gilbert and Eliza Ann Goodrich.
Charles Fox was born in Ireland in 1814. Book A, Alien Reports of St.Lawrence County, New York State contains data showing he applied for Naturalization as a U.S. citizen on 12 February 1840. Personal information in the report indicates he was born in Ireland C. 1815 and had an occupation as a farmer in 1840.
Charles had arrived in the U.S. in 1827, when he would have been about twelve. The report has a column titled 'When Admitted (as a citizen)', but only a check mark is in the appropriate column rather than a specific date. The check mark is probably an entry to repeat a date immediately above, which date was 17 September, 1844. Since non-native minor children became citizens when their parents were naturalized, it would appear that: a) Charles' parents did not opt for naturalization after emigration, or b) Charles may have emigrated from Ireland to the U.S. by himself, or with other unknown family members.
A wide-ranging search has, to date, failed to surface more information on Charles' emigration. The reader should understand most immigrant arrival records are in no way complete. Further, if Irish citizens wished to emigrate to Canada, there were no prohibitions against this in the early 1800s. And once in Canada, only the St. Lawrence river had to be crossed before landing in New York State. Certainly few records were kept of such events. Though it is not at all clear Charles came to St. Lawrence County from Canada, this is a possibility. The only other record in hand regarding Charles Fox is the 1850 U. S.Census Report for New York State, St. Lawrence County, Norfolk Township, Page 298, Entry 12, Family 109. This shows Charles, aged 36 from Ireland and Amanda, aged 28 from New York.
Also shown are William, aged 4 and Ozias Fox, aged one both being listed as from New York. From other family records, it is known Charles and Amanda had other children, i.e., Hiram, born 1851 at Raymondville, NY, in the Norfolk Township. Daughters Kathleen and Clara were born to the couple, but other specifics for them we do not know.
Children of Charles1 Fox and Amanda Gilbert were as follows:
