     Welcome to my Cox Genealogy Page.  This is my wife Vickie's line.   I have worked on this line for years now.  I believe the information below is correct, but If you find any discrepancies, please email me (now working).  I would like to thank Larry Adams and so many others for their contributions to this site.  Much of the information on the upper line was from Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, and from The Quaker Yeomen, Volume 20, number 3, contributed by Loretta Davis. This site is dedicated to my wonderful wife Vickie, my children, and my beautiful niece Danielle Madden Griggs who asked me to make this page.  Enjoy your stay.

     Please remember each bit of information found here, or elsewhere, must be researched and proven by weight of evidence, via you, the researcher.

Descendants of William Cox

*****************1st Generation*****************  

     William Cox was born on 15 September 1776 in Georgia, the son of John  and Jemima Cox, but not the John Cox and Jemima Gilbert of Pasqoutank and Perquimans Monthly Meetings in North Carolina.  The reason behind my insanity is this:    

     William was a Quaker who belonged to many Monthly Meetings in several states.  He married three times.  He married first to Elizabeth Thomas on 29 November 1794 at the Bush River Monthly Meeting, Newberry Co., South Carolina.  Elizabeth was born on 23 September 1773 in Bush River, Newberry Co., South Carolina, the daughter of Isaac Thomas and Mary Davies/Davey. William and his family migrated westward to Ohio, when he received on certificate to go to Miami Monthly Meeting, Warren Co., Ohio on 1806, March 29 (Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol. 1 - North Carolina, pg. 1028 - Bush River MM).  

     1807, April 09, William and his family received on certificate from  Bush River MM, at Miami MM, Warren Co., Ohio, dated 1806 March 29 (Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol. IV, pg. 44).  They later migrated to Randolph Co., Indiana. This is perhaps the reason for their migration: According to W. W. Hinshaw, moved by the desire to live in a country where no slaves were held, Friends of Bush River began migration to Ohio. Between 1802 and 1807 more than one hundred certificates of removal were issued, most of them being for families, this is quoted from the South Carolina Quaker Meeting Membership List, 1772-1820 website. 

     William and his family were listed in the 1820 Randolph, Montgomery Co., Ohio Census records, pg. 123 next door to David Cox, possibly the 1830 West River Twp., Randolph Co., Indiana Census records (Census was very hard to read), the 1840 West River Twp., Randolph Co., Indiana Census records, pg. 31, and the 1850 West River Twp., Randolph Co., Indiana Census records, pg. 181, household 1921. That census also states he was born in Georgia. Elizabeth died on 18 October 1849 in Randolph Co., Indiana. I found her however listed in the 1850 Indiana Mortality Schedule - Elizabeth Cox, 77 yrs, born SC, d: Typhoid Fever, October 1850. We know her death was in 1849, plus she was not listed in the 1850 Census records with William. She is buried in the Economy Cemetery, Wayne Co., Indiana. William and Elizabeth's children were:
