            Begin text here:»Mildred Fox was originally from Iowa.  From 1905 to 1908, she was a homesteader in South Dakota.  She lived in a small, eight by ten foot shack and taught at a public school for two years while she was there.  After three years in South Dakota, Fox returned to Iowa, married into the Everett family, and lived on a farm where she raised her five children.
