I have several Fuchs Fox lines and both are at some point in Lebanon Co, PA.They all touch back to German States.
Too much to post here but the messages I have included from OLD posts in some way relate to my branches.
I am much interested in finding if there is a link between the two German Fuchs Fox that I have. I also have English Fox.
Names on one tree are Johannes Christoph Fuchs 1746 m. Susannah Mary Bayer Boyerb 1747 with 9 children.
Another branch has Jacob Fuchs 1692 m Mary Catherine Unknown with 11 children two lines of which are Christopher and Adam.
One branch has more who stay in Central PA and are mennonite and the other goes to Huntington Co and Jefferson Clarion Co area and are Lutheran but also could be originally mennonite Palatinate line.
Johann Christoph b 1690 is and a Johann Adam Fuchsb 1690 are not yet linked in my tree but may be brothers.
The emails are too old to contact those listed so hoping many will find this post and wish to correspond.

Dear Donna, Dena, and Foxhounds,
The last time Jacob FOX was discussed I guess I missed something.
I am looking for Andrew FOX b. 1805-6 PA. (Details below). Now I see
that the family of Dena's, George FOX, and my Andrew have a curious
similarity in naming patterns. Both families have an Andrew, a John,
a Susannah, a Sarah and then Andrew throws in a Jacob and his son
Andrew Jr. throws in an Elizabeth (for good measure). :-)
Further, my Andrew settled in Lebanon Co., just west of Bucks Co., on a natural westward migratory route. I don't know if my FOX's were German or English but family tradition says that one of the FOX ancestors married a Countess or some such. Any kind of tale like that connected to Jacob's family? Do you know if any of Jacob's grandsons or great-grandsons married a Rebecca?
I would like to explore the possibilities of a connection. A time line on Jacob's family would help. Do you have any birth dates for his children, grandchildrenor GtGdchildren. Or, do you know any marriage dates for Jacob, etc. and how about his second wife... any info on her? Did she have any of his children?
Hope I'm not being overwhelming but perhaps between us we can come up with something. I have to warn you though... I'm slow... real life just keeps getting in the way. :-) Yours,David

Is anyone else researching Jacob Fox (Fuchs) who was born in 1703 in Germany and came to America in 1730s? He and his family settled in Bucks Co, PA,
where he died 1783-85. His children with his first wife (possibly Lizzie Moyer) were John, George, David, Nicholas, and Jacob. I would love to share information on this line. Donna Regen < email@example.com>
