No one in my family had any idea why he was nicknamed Fogger, I finally found an explanation-he was a middleman operating between the producers and the wholesalers in the nail and chain making industries, historical records imply that foggers took advantage of the individual nail makers who made nails in workshops in their own homes.

I don't have an exact date for this photo', it has to be before Dec 1897 when  Mary Ann died
