Roxie was the daughter of Lewis and Eunice Melvina (Preston) BLISS. Roxie married Artemas Fay in 1867 and they had 5 Children; She also raised Morton Carlilse Fay, her grandson, as a 6th child and he always considered Artemas and Roxie as his parents. Even his obituary listed them as his parents.

Roxie must have been a wonderful woman as she was involved in all kinds of social activities and charities up until her death. Her husband died in 1886 when their children were still all between 5 and 16 years old and she raised them all on her own.
My hat is off to this woman that managed to do so much and take care of so many.
