Inez Viola Fox was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, Nov. 7, 1863, to Mr. and Mrs. Israel Fox.

When a small child her parents moved to Richland Center, where she grew to womanhood.

Five children were born to this union, 2 boys dying in infantry. The surviving children are Mrs. Isaac Higgins of Granton, Mrs. Chris Feutz of Cannonville and Ross Galbreath of Lac La Bische, Canada. She also leaves 10 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild.

Mr. and Mrs. Galbreath moved to Clark County in 1899, and purchased a farm in the town of Washburn, and here the family lived until his death in Aug., 1913, when Mrs. Galbreath returned to Richland Center to care for her aged father until he passed away about 3 years ago. At that time she returned to Clark County to live with her daughters.
