Milton Mills’ Asa Fox & Son General Store

By Muriel Bristol | October 25, 2020

Asa Fox (1809-1887)

Asa Fox was born in Shapleigh, ME, October 23, 1809, son of Daniel Jr. and Mary (Roberts) Fox.

Daniel Fox [Jr.] headed a Shapleigh, ME, household at the time of the Third (1810) Federal Census. His household included one male aged 16-25 years [himself], one female aged 16-25 years [Mary (Roberts) Fox], and one male aged under-10 years [Asa Fox].

Asa Fox married, probably in Maine, circa 1832, Harriet Wood. She was born in Shapleigh, ME, March 8, 1807, daughter of Enoch and Dorothy (Heard) Wood.

Eldest son Charles D. Fox was born, probably in Acton, ME, circa 1833, prior to the family’s arrival in Milton Mills.

“He moved to Milton Mills, New Hampshire and opened a general store in 1834.” Middle son Elbridge W. Fox was born in Milton, December 3, 1834.

Captain Asa Fox was born in Acton, and settled at Milton Mills in 1834. He established himself in trade and carried on a thriving general business until his death, which occurred in 1887, at the age of seventy eight years. At first a Whig, he followed the majority of that party into the ranks of the Republicans. He was for many years identified with local affairs, and he served with ability as a Selectman, Town Treasurer, and legislative Representative. Prominent in military affairs, he held the commission of Captain in State militia. His wife, Harriet, who was a daughter of Enoch Wood, a well known resident of Acton in his day, became the mother of three sons. These were Charles, who died in 1852, Elbridge W., the subject of this sketch, and Asa A., who is residing in Milton Mills. Mrs. Asa Fox died in 1882 (Biographical Review, 1927).

Youngest son Asa Augustus Fox was born in Milton, February 3, 1837.

Asa Fox headed a Milton household at the time of the Sixth (1840) Federal Census. His household included one male aged 20-29 [Asa Fox], one female aged 20-29 years [Harriet W. Fox], two males aged 5-9 [Charles D. Fox and Elbridge W. Fox], and one male aged under-5 years [Asa A. Fox]. One member of the household was engaged in commerce, presumably Asa Fox himself. The Fox household appeared in the enumeration between those of Bray Simes, who was also engaged in commerce, and [Dr.] John L. Swinerton, who was engaged in a learned profession.

In the boundary descriptions of the properties devised in Fox’s 1887 will, we learn that his “homestead lot” was a half-acre lot beside or behind his store.

… my homestead lot, with the dwelling house, barn and shed standing thereon, bounded as follows, Beginning at the road leading to Fox’s store and in the center of the passway between my house and store, thence running northerly to the northerly end of the store, thence northeasterly to the southwesterly end of the store-house, thence northerly by said store-house thirty-two feet, thence northeasterly ten feet, thence northerly to the land of Henry H. Townsend, thence westerly by said Townsend’s land to land of the late Bray U. Simes, thence by said Simes’ land to the aforesaid road, thence southerly and easterly by said road to the bounds begun at, containing one half acre more or less, with all the privileges and appurtenances thereunto belonging … together with the right of passing and repassing to and from the said house, shed and back lot at all times, said passway to remain open and free for passing and repassing as now used.

Asa Fox & Son - 1856It is apparent from this Milton Mills map of 1856 that both Asa Fox’s house and store (marked here in red) stood on what is now termed Main Street, across the street from what would later be Ira Miller’s store. (Note that the Milton Mills school house (“S.H”) was not then situated where it would be later in 1875).

Asa Fox was one of three Milton selectmen in 1843-46, 1851-52, and 1858 (Mitchell-Cony, 1908).

Asa Fox, a trader, aged thirty-nine years (b. ME), headed a Milton household at the time of the Seventh (1850) Federal Census. His household included Harriet W. Fox, aged forty years (b. ME), Charles D. Fox, a carpenter, aged sixteen years (b. NH), Enoch E.W. Fox, a trader, aged fifteen years (b. NH), and Asa A. Fox, aged thirteen years (b. NH). Asa Fox had real estate valued at $2,000. His three sons had all attended school within the last year.

Eldest son Charles Daniel Fox died of typhoid fever in New York, October 4, 1852.

Asa Fox, a farmer, aged forty-five years (b. NH [SIC]), headed a Milton household at the time of the Eighth (1860) Federal Census. His household included Harriet W. Fox, aged forty-six years (b. NH [SIC]). Asa Fox had real estate valued at $3,000, and personal estate valued at $2,000. His household appeared next to that of his son, A.A. Fox, a carpenter, aged twenty-three years (b. NH).

(The NH Historical Society has an ambrotype photograph “showing horse and wagon in front of the Asa Fox and Son general store in Milton Mills,” which was taken in November 1860).

Asa Fox was presumably the author of the Vulpes letter of February 1864, vulpes being Latin for fox. He paid a $10 tax on his Class B retail dealer’s license in the U.S. Excise Tax of May 1864.

The firm of Asa Fox & Son of Milton Mills paid a $10 tax on their retail dealer’s license in the US Excise Tax of 1866. Asa Fox paid personally a $1 tax on his carriage.

The Milton Mills mercantile firm of Asa Fox & Son appeared in the Milton business directories of 1867-68, 1868, and 1869-70. They sold dry goods and groceries. Son Elbridge W. Fox appeared also as a justice of the peace, as postmaster and, in 1869, as selectman.

Asa Fox, a retail grocer, aged fifty-nine years (b. ME), headed a Milton (“Milton Mills P.O.”) household at the time of the Ninth (1870) Federal Census. His household included his wife, Harriet W. Fox, keeping house, aged sixty-two years (b. ME). Asa Fox had real estate valued at $5,000, and personal estate valued at $7,050. His household appeared next to that of his son, Elbridge W. Fox, a retail grocer, aged thirty-four years (b. NH).

The Milton Mills mercantile firm of Asa Fox & Son appeared in the Milton business directories of 1871, 1875, 1876, 1877, and 1880.

(Ira Miller sold his Central House hotel and opened a competing general store at Milton Mills at about this time).

The Milton Mills mercantile firm of Asa Fox & Son appeared in the Milton business directories of 1881, 1882, 1884, and 1887.

Harriet (Wood) Fox died July 3, 1882.

Asa Fox of Milton, merchant, made out his last will, June 22, 1887. He devised his homestead to his grandson, Charles D. Fox. This bequest included also all the household goods, provisions, hay and wood on hand, as well as his money on deposit at the Strafford County Savings Bank at Dover, NH. He devised his store to his son, Elbridge W. Fox, and grandson, Everett F. Fox, as well as his 9-acre field near the Miller Brook. He devised his 12-acre “further field” to his son, Asa A. Fox, as well as half of the money deposited at the Somersworth Savings Bank. He devised all the rest and residue to his sons, Elbridge W. Fox and Asa A. Fox, in equal shares, and named them as joint executors. Abbie S. Hayes, Mary L. Hayes, and Charles Hayes signed as witnesses. (The will was proved in Rochester, NH, October 18, 1887) (Strafford County Probate, 89:141).

Asa Fox sold land in Milton to his son, Asa A. Fox, for $1,500 (Farmington News, July 1, 1887). Asa Fox sold land in Milton to his son, E.W. Fox, for $1,500 (Farmington News, July 22, 1887).

Asa Fox died in Milton, September 29, 1887, aged seventy-seven years, eleven months, and six days.

Elbridge W. Fox (1834-1912)

Elbridge Enoch Wood Fox was born in Milton, December 3, 1834, son of Asa and Harriet (Wood) Fox. Though he was a namesake for his maternal grandfather, Enoch Wood, he seems to have rarely used the “Enoch” part of his name.

Elbridge Wood Fox continued the family business of operating a general store. His father’s last will had requested that the firm name of Asa Fox & Son not be changed “for a time,” and it would seem that Elbridge W. Fox never did change it.

(His surviving brother, Asa A. Fox, and his son, Charles D. Fox [II], pursued business interests of their own).

ELBRIDGE W. FOX, a prosperous general merchant of Milton Mills, was born in this town, December 3, 1834, son of Captain Asa and Harriet (Wood) Fox. … After attending the Wakefield Academy for a time, Elbridge W Fox completed schooling at the New Hampton Literary Institute. He began his mercantile career in father’s store. With the exception of a year spent in the grocery business in Boston, he has been connected with his present business ever since. After the death of his father he and his son, Everett F., became the proprietors of the store but the business is still carried on under the firm name of Asa Fox & Son. In the capacity of Justice of the Peace he transacts a large amount of legal business. He is widely known as a reliable and upright man. Since his first Presidential vote was cast for John C. Fremont in 1856, he has been an active supporter of the Republican party. He served as a Selectman and as Town Treasurer for a number of terms and he was Postmaster from 1865 to 1885. He was elected for two years to the legislature in 1876 [1873], but his duties as Postmaster obliged him to resign. He was elected again in 1891, and afterward served for two years. He was one of the incorporators of the Rochester Savings Bank, is Vice President and Trustee of the Nute High School and Library of Milton, and he has been the statistical correspondent of the county or the United States Agricultural Department for the past quarter of a century. He was both State and United States Delegate to the World’s Sunday-school Convention held in London, England, in July, 1889, and he later made a tour of the continent of Europe, prolonging his visit in the principal centres of France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. He has been Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of the Check List since the enactment of the law creating such office in 1878, and he has held, almost without exception, all the courts in Milton for the trial of criminal action, for many years. His confidential counsel is constantly sought by those in need of advice in regard to financial and matters, and for years he has been the manager and investor of trust funds, both large and small, for neighbors, townspeople and others. Mr. Fox married Miss Sarah E. Buck, daughter of Dr. Reuben Buck, a physician of Acton. Mrs. Fox is the mother of one son, Everett F., who is now connected in business with his father as previously mentioned. Mr. Fox is a Deacon of the Congregational church, and has been superintendent of the Sunday-school for the past twenty years (Biographical Review, 1927).

Elbridge W. Fox of Milton Mills attended the New Hampton Academical and Literary Institution, at New Hampton, NH, with its Class of 1851. He was an active member of its Literary Adelphi library society in 1851.

THE LITERARY ADELPHI. The Literary Adelphi was founded A.D., 1827. Its object is to develop the mind. It has a spacious and convenient Reading-Room, containing a cabinet of minerals, and a valuable library. By the liberality of its patrons it is furnished with about twenty newspapers from various sections of the country. Besides this the society received several valuable periodicals. To those who have aided, by the contribution of books, newspapers, periodicals, & c., we tender out heartfelt thanks. Additions are made to the library, from time to time, as the state of the funds of the society will permit.

Republicans Joseph Plumer and Elbridge Fox were elected as Milton’s state representatives in the election of March 11, 1873 (Vermont Journal (St. Johnsbury, VT), March 22, 1873).
