Walter D. Fogg was born on 11 Mar 1867 in Bangor, Penobscot Count, Maine to Sylvester D Fogg and Eliza Reed1,2,3,4. He appeared on the 1870 and 1880 US Federal Censuses in Bangor, living with his parents and siblings5,6.

Walter D. Fogg married Lizzie M. Scripture on 22 Mar 1886 in Bangor7. Lizzie was the sister of Walter’s brother Arthur‘s wife, Annie M. Scripture. Walter and Lizzie had at least three children:

  1. Euna M. Fogg, born 26 Oct 1886
  2. Gladys E. Fogg, born 13 Oct 1888
  3. Manola B. Fogg, born 31 Mar 1893

There may have been another daughter named Barbara, as Walter and Lizzie are named as her parents on a record of her marriage8, but she was not counted on any census in the Fogg household. She also may have been Walter’s known daughter Manola, as her middle initial was B.

Walter D. Fogg appeared on the 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940 Censuses in Bangor, his occupation listed as “farmer” on all of them9,10,11,12,13. I also found Walter in twelve Bangor city directories from 1933 to 1954 living on Ohio Street, occupation “farmer”.

Walter died in 195314.
