Jennie Lind Fox is my 2nd great-grandmother. She was born on September 29, 1857 in Spring Valley, Rock, Wisconsin to Hiram Fox and Mary Richards Fox. Jennie was one of six Fox children. Jennie married George Adelbert "Dell" Wright on April 5, 1875 at the age of 17. George & Jennie had three children: George W. Wright, Randall Grovenor Wright and Mary Gladys Wright. In the early years of their marriage they lived with George's widowed mother, Henrietta Wright on their farm in Turtle, Wisconsin. They eventually moved to the town of Beloit where they lived on Grand Avenue, Jennie was a homemaker and George worked on local farms. By the early 1900s they bought a house on East Grand Avenue and took in boarders. In 1910 George was working at the sand plant and Jennie was running the boarding house. After her husband's passing in 1914 Jennie moved in with family friend and widower Owen Linderman and took on the job of housekeeping and helping raise Linderman's young daughter, Ada Linderman. On August 1, 1924 at the age of 66, Jennie Lind Fox Wright died at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin from injuries suffered in a car accident. Her son-in-law Delbert Crotsenberg was driving the car when the steering knuckle broke sending the car out of control and off the road overturning the car. Delbert was severely injured in the accident but survived. Jennie Lind Fox Wright is buried beside her husband George Adelbert "Dell" Wright at the Oakwood Cemetery, in Beloit, Wisconsin. Jennie was an avid gardener and loved to fish.
