On the archive.org site you can look up many texts in the category of genealogy, and many are from the Allen Co library - someone on here recommended this site to me and I find that there are some books related to specific Cox families. I believe there is one about John Cox - I wonder if he could possibly be your John. There are also some county and state histories where you might find something about him. I search around for a while and then have to take a break because other duties call. But good luck in your search.
Hi Brenda.I looked through that book also..but I am thinking my line must be one of them he mentions that there isn't any info about.John Cox..1740-1800..is as far as I have gotten back.Not sure where he was born,but died in Pittsylvania County Virginia.I only match 2 on the Family Tree DNA Cox project..my haplogroup is I-CTS6017.
From reading through the various comments here, I saw direct references to several of the areas mentioned in them. Apparently much serious research went into this book and the information is pretty reliable. I'm scanning through it (about 900 pgs in length) to try and find references to Coxes who ended up in the western part of PA and then into VA(WV) area, but along the way I'm finding many genealogies listed which enable me to discount them from my line because of the area or dates.
For any of you who have not heard of this book, it is worth checking out because it gives pretty detailed info about the history of different Cox lines originating in England, Sweden, Holland, Scotland and a few others. Also includes lots of genealogies which you may be able to find a connection to: The Cox Family in America https://archive.org/stream/coxfamilyinamer00coxgoog/coxfamilyinamer...
I am working on one of my Cox lines (I have two) who were living in MO in the second half of the 1800's. John C Cox moved to AR probably around 1880+ with family. He died in Marion County, AR in 1895 and was later moved to Newton County, AR where he was permanently buried. William S Franklin Cox (who I assume to be his son since that's who moved his burial site) is my ggrandfather. I think John C Cox was related to William A Cox (possibly a brother) who was married to Mary Wiseman, as they were living on the same property in 1860 (Mercer County, MO). William A Cox also shows up in Estill County, KY in 1850. I can't find John prior to 1860. Supposedly John's dad was also born in KY and his mom in TN (John was born in 1835 in MO). Please let me know if any of these people are familiar.
Needing information on the Cox family on the 1850 Lee Co., VA census, show they were all born in North Carolina. Appears to be mother (at least the oldest) Nancy Cox, with sons Haywood, Solomon, Richard and Calloway. I have traced out these sons to Kansas and Missouri, losing track of one. Can find Nancy on the 1860 census in Kentucky, but lose her after that. Three of the sons married Gose women. Death record on one of the sons names the father as David with no mention of mother. Believe there may have been a sister named Adeline - this is what I'm trying to prove. I know these names are in common with some Cox/Osborne connects in Tennessee and also some common names with other NC Coxes, but can't find the direct connection. Haywood also goes by Henry; Calloway is often James C. Nancy was born about 1803. Records on this family have them born in NC, sometimes Virginia, sometimes Kentucky, varying from census to census as is common. Does anyone have any ideas?
I am looking for Isaac Cox who married Mary Wise. They moved from Greene Co, PA to WV (then VA) around the mid-1800's. I have been unable to ID his/her parents as there were several Isaac's. Anyone have any info on this Cox line?
Good morning! I have John Cox and Margaret Morris as parents of Rebecca Cox (and others) in Lincoln County, NC. I believe they originated in NJ/PA. It interests me what Morrises Margaret came from. I'm almost certain she was not a child of Robert Morris (signer of DI).
I have an Elizabeth Cox
