John A. Fox and Sophronia Maynard were my 3rd great-grandparents. I’m not quite sure what they were doing in Oklahoma or why they were buried there as neither of them were from OK. They might have had children living there when Sophronia died in 1917. I haven’t done much research on this side of the family yet. John actually died in 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He had been living there for 7 years when he died. I believe he was living with his son Dilliard Fox in Indiana when he died. I’m looking forward to doing more research on this side of the family.
