Hey Sandy; I came across your wonderful job on the Arrasmith family with the connection to my Fooks family by way of Sarah A. Dean. Sarah married my GGG-grandfather on July 4, 1880 near Galesburg in Knox County. My GGG-grandfathers name was James Fox(the fox was changed from Fooks) sometime around 1870 by James. James was a school teacher in Galva, Ill. This was his second marriage, he was first married to Arminda Bolding, Knox Cty, they had a son named Owen Fox. Arminda died in childbirth with their second child. Sarah married James when Owen was about 5 yrs old. Joel Dean was born in Tenn.in abt. 1819. Elizabeth was born in Ky abt. 1840. Sarah was married once before James but that name wasn't on the marriage cert. Sarah was born in Blackhawk Twp., Rock Island, Ill. As were all the children. I was in Knox cty. this summer and found several documents. I was surprized to find Squire F. Dean living was a family by the name of Henry and Rachel Thompson of Blackhawk at the age of 11yrs. He remained with them until he was 22 yrs. old, I could not find anything else after that. Sarah died July 19, 1883 from Lung fever/pneumonia.She had been ill for 15 days. She was buried in Knoxville cemetary on July 25th 1883., Knox cty, Il. Sarah and James had no children. James was the son of Morris William Fooks from MD and Olive Sweetser from Ohio. James was born in Mo. I am still looking for more information on James and Morris. Hope this is of some help to you. Alice Fox-Radcliff

Listed as William Arrasmith, 3 in the 1860 Mercer County, Illinois census.

Buried at Couch Cemetery, Jewel, Kansas.

Letter to Annie E. Day from her brother Alvin Wilbur Arrasmith:
May 27,1900

Dearest Sister, We were greatly surprised and grieved when your sorrowful
letter was received. We can hardly realize yet what has happened it was
so sudden. I cannot write much, but only think of my lonely sister and
those boys so far away from home and kindred. Perhaps there is a little
that I can say at this time however, I want to say don't give up. Those
boys will need a mother's counsel and care for some time yet. George is
a strong manly looking fellow and they will be a great help and comfort
to you. I wish you and them could come back here for a while at least,
and if you could content yourselves to live her all the time so much the
better. Mother has very poor health this Spring. Sometimes she is
hardly able to go. Still she won;t give up and will be doing something
anyway. The rest are well. Write when you can. As ever, your loving
brother, Wilbur.
