FOX, FORD - Ford Fox, 37, a carpenter and for the past three years a resident of Troy was struck by a D. & T. car at Ebenezer, four miles north of Dayton, at 11:45 o'clock Saturday night, had both legs cut off and died in a Dayton hospital about two hours later.  Fox is alleged to have gone to Dayton Saturday night and to have become intoxicated and on his way home was put off the car.  The motorman saw him lying across the track but too late to stop the car.  He was identified after death by Whitmer brothers, undertakers, who had been placed in charge of the body.  The body was brought to Troy and taken to his residence on Grant street, Monday afternoon.  The dead man was born in Kessler where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Warren fox, still reside.  He leaves a wife and two daughters and two brothers, Charles of West Milton and Oscar of Troy.  He was well liked and had many friends who were greatly shocked by his tragic death.  The funeral was held Wednesday morning at the home and was conducted by Rev. Etter.  Burial was made in the Curtis cemetery near Kessler.
