Civil War record for Isaac W FOX
« on: Tuesday 16 June 20 04:52 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am looking for advice on where I might go to find some information on someone who fought and died in the American Civil War. The soldier's name was Isaac W FOX and he was part of the 12th New Jersey Infantry I division). At the time of his death, Isaac was a corporal.

Isaac was born in approx 1835 in Salem, NJ. He married Sarah E WALTON (my 3x great-aunt) in 1854 in NJ.

I believe Isaac died on 17th June 1864 in Petersburg and was buried in the Poplar Grove National Cemetery in Virginia (after originally having been buried at 'Webb's Farm'). He left behind his wife and two young daughters, Joanna and Melvina.

I live in Australia and don't know what records might be available to research (hopefully on-line) so would appreciate any advice.

Thank you,
Sandra

From the "Records of Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War, 1861-1865"

https://www.njstatelib.org/research_library/new_jersey_resources/highlights/civil_war_officers_and_men/

I see him listed twice, but nothing more than what you have.

=================

He is also listed in a book of New Jersey Volunteers, printed in 1863. He was only a private at the time.
