Title Teacher and Surveyor
Description also evidence that he expected to remain in Manti and that the voters has assurance that he had no plans of a contrary nature. In the very same month President Young visited the colony for the second time and released Jesse to return permanently to Salt Lake City. William M. Lemmon, the principal surveyor in Salt Lake City and County, had died on March 10, 1851, and President Young was satisfied that Jesse Fox was the man best qualified to succeed him. Here then is the piece of the tapestry depicting Jesse Fox, Sr., as a professional man. We tend today to think of pioneer times as ancient history. To show how untrue this is let me create another picture. Jesse William Fox, Sr.'s son, Jesse Williams Fox, Jr.. took as his first wife Ruth May Fox (my gr-grandfather and gr-grandmother) and as his second wife Rosemary Johnson Fox. Rosemary's son Ellis Mathias* Fox lives today in Orem, Utah, at age eighty-eight "Mathias" was named for Matthias Cowley because Jesse Fox, Sr.'s. plural wife was Sarah Foss Cowley, widowed mother of the apostle to be. My father, George Merrill Fox, is still living {1996) at age ninety-four. His grandmother, Ruth May Fox lived until she was almost 105 years old and died in 1958; Rosemary Johnson Fox lived to be 92 and died the same year. They had twenty children. The thread continues to weave pictures. The tapestry grows through their posterity and the stories continue. "Rosemary changed the spelling of her son's name using only one "t".
