      AMASA FOX is a prominent farmer of Hackberry township, Labette county, Kansas, who has been located in the southwest quarter of section 35, township 34, range 20, almost continuously since 1869. He was born in Wayne county, Michigan, in 1828, and is a son of A. Fox.

      A. Fox was a sailor and ran on the first steamboat on Lake Erie. He married Sibyl Bell, who was born in Vermont, and they reared five children. Those living are: Daniel, who resides in Chetopa, Kansas; and Amasa.

      Amasa Fox lived in Wayne county, Michigan, until he was twenty-three years of age, and then located in Kane county, Illinois. There he was engaged in farming until 1869, when, accompanied by his wife, he journeyed to Labette county, Kansas, by wagon, - the trip consuming four weeks. He located in the southwest quarter of section 35, township 24, range 20, in Hackberry township, which has since been his home with the exception of about three years spent in Washington. He was actively engaged in farming for many years, but at the present time rents his land. He was a very successful business man and laid by a handsome competency.

      Mr. Fox was united in matrimony with Martha Rumsey, who was born in Delaware county, New York, in 1834, and is a daughter of E. S. Rumsey, who was born in New York and was a farmer by occupation. Mr. Rumsey married Chloe Du Bois, also a native of New York, and they reared 20 children. Those now living are: Annis; Margaret; Ebenezer; James; Martha; Mr. Fox's wife, Emma; and Harrison. Mr. and Mrs. Fox have had seven children: Luella, deceased; Francis I.; Charles E.; Daniel W., deceased; Katie; Ernest; and Lue. In politics, Mr. Fox is independent. He and his wife are Methodists.
