Fox, a journalist, novelist and short story writer, was born in Bourbon County in 1862. He entered Transylvania College at age 15, spending two years before going to Harvard. Two of his more well-know novels were “The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come” and The Trail of the Lonesome Pine.” Herald-Leader Archive Photo
