I am still trying to locate Virginia Cox as per my previous request. I have unearthed some new details, which I am hopeful will help narrow the search.
Virginia Frances Rose Cox born Chicago Dec 1925 to Ellen "Nellie" Kavanagh from Waterford Ireland. She is mistakenly listed as Cavanaugh and Kavanaugh in some documents and her family knew her as Ellen, but she refers to herself as Nellie on official documents. Virginia's father was an Oval Cox from W. Virginia who was a serviceman in the US Navy and died when Virginia was a baby. Virginia was an actress and appears on the US Census living in Longbeach California in 1940 and she made a movie in 1949 called Brothers In The Saddle. She visited Ireland in the early 1950's and apparently got married shortly thereafter. Her cousins in Ireland would like to know if she is still alive. Many thanks.

Great to find new cousins. My grandmother, Florida Hazel Cox(1896-1998, almost made it to three different centuries)would have loved to read and view all your information and photos. Not that she ever used a computer. She wrote quite a bit in journal style in her 90s and was in extremely good mental shape right up till the end at age 101.
She was married in 1914 to Thomas Albert Cox(1879-1926), a man I never met but who lives on in our family's legends. Thanks again, I'll keep up with the cousins as best as I can.

Hi there!
I'm a direct descendant of Eliza Connor, whom I THINK I've traced back to your Henry through Sara (Sally) Cox. I have my dna uploaded to Family Tree DNA and Gedmatch. If you do too, let me know. I would love to compare genomes! My Gedmatch kit number is M870857.
I hope to hear from you soon,

I have traced back to John Cox (c.1760 to 1800) who spent most of his life in Pittsylavania County Va (and died there). He left a son James Cox (who went on to Patrick County, Va and died there in the 1830s) and also three daughters, two of whom went to North Carolina and one of whom maybe went to Missouri. Other family names: Ross, Burnett, Mullins, Nelson, Grimmett (the Missouri branch). James Cox married Elizabeth (maiden name not known) and then married Sarah Ross in 1799 (Franklin County Virginia), and had lots of children. Would love to correspond with anyone tying into this line. I am currently trying to go back thur Lunenburg, Halifax, Goochland, etc. counties. Thanks, and a GREAT site!

I have been researching the Moses Overton line out of Amelia Co., VA. Moses daughter married Curd Cox in Halifax where her father had moved about 1779. Several of us Overton researchers have been trying to figure out who Moses' father was but have run into many brick walls as is normal in the Genealogy world. We know from a deed in 1753 in Amelia that Moses came from King and Queen Co., VA, which is a burned county...hence, no records. But we have found circumstantial evidence that the Overtons were probably in Henrico/Goochland Counties at some point. Where it appears the Cox line is also from.
Getting to the point, in looking at Susannah and Curd's children I found an interesting naming pattern. This is what we found:
1) Sarah would be the name of her grandmother
2) John M. would be after Curd's grandfather with the "M" being for "Moses" her father
3) James H. would be her grandfather with the "H" being for "Henry" Curd's father
4) Richardson would be Curd's mother's maiden name (true)
5) Mary would be the name of her mother
6) Henry would be the name of Curd's father (true)
7) Moses would be her father (true)
8) Elizabeth would be Curd's mother (true)
9) Ann Milly would be named after Curd's Stepmother (true)

Where I have (true) only means that the associated parent/grandparent has that name.

I was not sure that Curd's grandparents were a John and Elizabeth but if true, this lends some support that Moses' parents were a James and Mary.

I have been soliciting male donors for Y-DNA and have found (in Oregan) an 84-year old male descendant of Valentine Cox of the Lynchburg area. His lab results should arrive tomorrow. Last week I discovered a male descendant west of West Lafayette, IN (where I live) and feel certain he will volunteer to send a Y-DNA kit to the lab at Family Tree DNA lab (

I had my Y-DNA processed three years ago. A male Cox living in San Francisco matched mine and proves our paper trail back to two sons of Littleberry Cox. Littleberry had married in Campbell Co., VA, and is posted in Hinshaw's Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy along with Valentine Cox's son, James (Vol. 6).

I am surprised that more DAR and SAR applicants are not supported by their Y-DNA to prove their paper trail is correct.

Would you be interested in posting an Excel spreadsheet if I created one for you? It would list the results of Cox descendants descending from the Godspeed? Seems that nobody has discovered what that male haplotype is until my present research. Do you know of anyone?

Thank-you for sharing your research. I am a descendent of Nicholas Cox. I appreciate the way you explained your thought processes. Could you tell me how you know that Nicholas and Matthew Cox are brothers?

If Nicholas is related to your Cox pedigree, then we may be have a double connection. Edward Curd is my ancestor but not through his daughter. Brenda

You have a beautiful website and we of the Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters appreciate it very much.
I wish to make a slight correction to the criteria for being an Ancient Planter. "Survived the massacre" is not one of the criteria. The criteria is to have been in VA by the "going away of Sir Thomas Dale," to have remained for a period of three years and for this they received the first patents of land in the new world and they are called Ancient or Old planters in the patents. Thank you.

Louise and Bushy:

I have been working on the emigrant Walter Cocke line and find conflicting information concerning Henry Cox (born about 1737-1750 in Goochland Co VA, died about 1809 Blount Co TN; married in 1773 Anne Madison).

Some researchers show this Henry as the son of John Cox and Elizabeth /Elce Hix (which is your line Bushy), while others show him instead as the son of a Walter Cocke (see page 228 in Louise R. Cox’s 2001 “Early Cox Familiesö book).

It would be very helpful to me if you two can elaborate on which one you have found to be most accurate. I’m really on the direct path to breaking down a brick wall in my Cox lineage and this point has me baffled.

I greatly appreciate your assistance.

I have found so much about the Coxes from this site. I appreciate it so much. My Grandfather Was Rufus Mynatt Cox, born feb. 25th 1854. Died April 7th, 1929. He married my grandmother Alice Amanda West 1884 in Anderson Cty. Tn. The cemetary Lists his mothers last name as Leach and his father as Harris Cox. They are buried in Highland Memorial Cemetary on Sutherland Ave in Knoxville, Tn. My grandfather must have been the son of James Harrison Cox and Elizabeth Leach.James Harrison Cox Is listed as dying on 2/03/1891. My dads name was Enoch Everett Cox. He said one of his grandparents died on his birthday, 3/02/1891.I wonder which is right. My dad had sisters Nellie, Mayme, Vesta and Eulilia (Doll) Cox. Brothers Walter A and Ted R Cox. My dad is buried in Lynhurst Cemetary in Knoxville. He passed away on Nov. 7, 1975. My mother, Luna VanDeGriff Cox passed away on May 1, 1992. I have 3 brothers, all deceased. The odd thing is, My grandmother, Alice West Descended from Thomas West, (Lord DelaWarr) family that landed in Va. in 1607.It looks amazing if William Coxe was on the same boat. I am 76 years old and have outlived most of my family. My dad would be thrilled. He and his brother went all over Anderson Cty looking for clues. They moved to Knoxville when he was about 6 and my grandfather worked for Southern Railway. My dad also worked in car dept office, and my oldest brother worked 40 yars also. I worked 16 years and retired in 1998. I cannot lave this computer for long. I think the line must go back to John M. and Alice Gammon Cox, then to Curd Cox and Susannah Overton. Then to Henry Cox and Ann Madison. The timeline seems to fit. Curd and Susannah must be buried on Private property. It seems there are a few Cox cemetaries in Anderson Cty. If I can give you any more information or if you can give me more info, please email me. Thank you very much. Rosemary Cox Mixon, Knoxville, Tn

Thanks so much for all the hard work you've put into this very valuable site. I've gleaned so much from it.
I have a question, perhaps you can help me with. I’m the gggggrandaughter of John M. Cox & Alice Gammon. In his will John mentions all his children except my ggggrdandfather William Carroll Cox. Do you have any clue why? I haven't been through all the deeds in Knoxville yet to see if he gave him land before his death.
Also, I have a picture of William Carroll's son Augustus "Gus" Cox b.1872 & his wife Bella Agnes Galbraith b.1880. I have several other photos of his descendants and I'm hoping to get several more this Spring when I return to TN. I currently live in CO.
Thanks so much for your incredible work. It is very much appreciated.
Respectfully, Deb

I am new to this search. My father was Thomas Ernest Cox born in Davenport, Lincoln, Oklahoma 6 aug 1914. His father was Thomas Curtis Cox ..who was married to Sophronia Atlanta Mayfield.....I have a picture of them....I am not sure who his parents were....I have noticed a Wm Hugh Cox shown as Thomas Curtis father....however, I think that his father may be Thomas Ellison Cox......and the line going up to Joshua Cox. I would love to learn more.....I have entered people under family tree of Ina Joan Cox. The Mayfield line is researched back a long way. I would like to know where my father fits into the Cox line. Please let me know if I can be of assistance. Thanks,Ina Johnson

Hello, I am attempting to contact Karen Foster-Stout. I am the Great-Great Grandson of Daniel S. Warfield. Charlie Warfield is my Great Grandfather, John D. Warfield is my grandfather, Leroy Warfield is my father. Attached below is an email I have been trying to send. I have further research I want to share. Please be so kind as to help me contact Karen. The email below references Census records and research I want to share. The email link to Karen came back as non-deliverable.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hello to everyone!

I am Leroy Warfield's son from Brushy Valley, Tennessee. (John Daniel Warfield was his dad, Charles was his grandfather). I came across this your page at lunch today, and naturally was amazed. I have been doing research on the family history, and found some interesting information. The photo of Daniel Warfield that you have list his middle name as Charles. It was actual "S" for Swomley (this is the Americanized spell, the German spelling is Schwamley or Zwamle). Daniel's mother was German. She married George Warfield who was born 22 December 1792 in Maryland. I am including some electronic files that you may be interested in. I would really like to share some information on this. I have hit a dead end on George (Daniel's dad). Most of the Warfield's from around Maryland were related and trace back to a Richard Warfield who arrived here from Berkshire, England in the 1600's. (Yes, our ancestors have been here that long!)

I have included some Census Documents that I was able to retrieve, and some other information. The file marked Descendants of Richard Betts, list Daniel, his mother, and his father (George). The names of George and Daniel seem to have been passed down through the years. Daniel's father on his mothers side was Johannes Swomley. He was born in Palatinate, Germany in 1727. He married a German widow named Anna Margaretha Becker (born about 1729) in Penn. They had a son, Daniel Swomley who was born about 1760. Daniel in turn married and had a daughter, Sara Swomley, who married George Warfield. They had Daniel Swomley Warfield. Daniel was widowed, and married his second wife, Margaret Lowery. They moved to St. Louis, Missouri and had a large farm. Census records on this list them and their children. Daniel and George are buried in St. Louis at a family graveyard for the Warfield family. There are 8 grave sites listed there. Daniel was a Prisoner of War during the Civil War. He appears to have served with a Sharpshooter Rifle Company. He was eventually released and went back to his family. I have tracked at least one of Daniel and Margaret's daughters to Colorado Springs, Colorado. We have family that lives there as well. I have more information that may help us track back further. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks, and good to find you!

Great work. I wonder if you have found a James Cox b. 1762, King & Queen Co., In Halifax 1780-81 and 1787 and In Stokes COunty NC by 1810 census. He died 1846 in Stokes CO. Had children - Henry Cox b. abt 1802 and Francis Cox (not proven) born about 1785-90, and perhaps a Martha Cox. He had 4 sons and only two identified. Francis Cox is in my line. I would appreciate greatly any info on this family especially origins of James Cox.-Atonia.

Fascinated to see all the Curd-Cox info and read the discussion of the documents etc.
I am trying to find out about my CURD family both here in the UK and elsewhere so was fascinated to see reference to the name and then to see a parish church in Hertfordshire England as well! My CURD line seems to originate in Hertfordshire (UK), well back as far as John CURD and Susannah PYMLEY both born about 1750.

That's where I get stuck! There are plenty of other CURD members around the world and I am starting to get involved with DNA testing as a way of linking them together.

It would be good to get a link to all this US history from the Hertfordshire UK CURD line..

All the best

Have any of the Knox Co., TN Coxes submitted DNA to the Cox (all spellings) DNA project? My great grandfather and his brother were left as orphans in Pike Co., AR in 1855. The supposed name of his father was Richard Matthew Cox. My great grandfather was said to have been born "near Knoxville, TN" but does not appear in the 1850 census and the court house where he grew up has burned twice. My great grandfather was C. R.

I noticed an error in the James Cox 1730 on roots web. Alex and Bertha Cox had eleven children. The mistake was Verda was not their child. It should be Bertie Mae Cox Roberts - Born December 05,1917 and is still alive.
The second child was Abie David Cox Born and Died 1915 in Cooke County and buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery.
Bertie Mae is still alive and living in Grayson County.
On G. C. Cox he has passed away. Feb. 19, 2004, ( I went to
His funeral.

My main interest has been the Berry family; however, I "inherited" a large group of old photos that most likely are Cox children(most likely a brother to Amanda). My ggrandfather was George Berry married to Amanda Cox. As far as I know, they lived in Powell Co., KY but some of both families migrated to Missouri. Many pictures are to "Uncle George and Aunt Amanda". I believe their deaths were in the early 1900's.

If this may be in anyone's line, I certainly would be happy to let you have the old photos since I just don't have the interest to dig any farther.

Very interesting and informative! I too have a "missing" Henry Cox - he disappears from Cumberland County VA ca. 1770. I know who his parents are, but don't know anything of his wife or descendants. I have been researching for years Martha Cox, the wife of Thomas Walton (Sr.) of VA. Have proof that she is the only daughter of George Cox d. 1728 in Goochland VA (George being a son of Bartholomew Cox d. 1731 Goochland CO Va). The widow of George d. 1728 (Martha ____) after George's death married before 1741 to #2 Isaac Hughes (who died 1758 Cumberland VA) and the widow Martha (now Hughes) left her will in 1770 Cumberland Co. Va. In her will, she names her 3 children, Martha Walton, George Cox and Henry Cox . . . I have found a 400 acre land patent issued to George Cox & Martha Cox in 1733 in Goochland; that land was sold in 1741 by Martha now Walton, her husband Thomas Walton and George Cox. About the same time, in Goochland County ca. 1731-33, land patents were also placed by (I believe) her brothers, Henry and George; these lands all adjoined and butted against the lands of Bartholomew, dec'd. Was wondering if your Henry could be the same Henry as the brother of my Martha (nee Cox)Walton? the land in these patents are located in the present day Powhatan County VA - which separated in 1771 from Cumberland VA . . . not 5 miles from the present day Cumberland County border. I have not found much mention of Henry and George in Cumberland VA after the will of their mother,Martha Hughes, when Henry as Executor of the Estate of his mother, Martha Hughes, sold her land; the brothers seem to "disappear". If the these 3 children had to be 21 to place a land patent, then they were all 21 by 1731-33! I know from their father's will in 1727/8 that they were all minors at that time. I believe the Matthew Cox you mentioned in the articles at this website may be a son of William Cox of Essex Co. VA who died in 1754 Essex and left a will in Book 9 p. 291-5. He had sons: William who married Margaret ____,: Henry who married Ann ___; Matthew, deceased who married I believe Mary & had at least 1 daughter, Martha. The widowed, Mary, married #2 Richard Hodges; he also mentions daughters: Sarah Bowcock; Frances, wife of John Gatewood; daugther Mary, wife of James Pryor. The Executor of this will was Henry Cox, son of the testator; witnesses were Samuel, Marthew & William Allen and Edward Ball.

Stumbled across your wonderful site today...found lots of interesting things. I am searching for any information about the COX family in Missouri. I have very minimal information about my paternal grandfather which is as far back as I can go. I know he worked as a telegrapher for the railroad. I know he had at least 7 wives, my grandmother (Hilda Schuke-deceased) was the 7th. His name was Raymond Lee Cox-deceased. I know that he had 2 children with my grandmother. They are Michael Lee Cox born 8/25/1952 and a younger brother Patrick Lee Cox 1954?. Patrick is deceased. My father tells me that he was born in Desoto, MO, and grew up in Bismark, MO. I don't know the whole story, but I know that Raymond spent a lot of time away from home. I am not sure at what point in his marriage to my grandmother, but they were divorced and she remarried a man with the last name Wygant. At the age of 6 my father was told that Raymond was found stabbed in St. Louis. He was buried by his first wife (unknown) in a private cemetary in Advance, MO. I do not know the location of this private cemetary nor the name of it. My father's brother Patrick had 3 children. Two sons, one Jason, the other ?, and one daughter Tina. Tina's mother's name is Paula. I do have contact with Tina and her mother, but they only have limited information as well. My father, Michael Lee Cox married Charlene Anne Courtois of Perryville, MO. They had 6 children. Francis Michael, Nicholas Raymond, Beatrice Anne, Alexander Charles, Theodore Vincent, and Deborah Ruth. Michael and Charlene currently live in St. James, MO, and all of their children live St. James and Rolla, MO. All are still living. 4 of the children are married, 3 of which have children of their own. I would like to know more about my grandfather. My father believes that he is the only living child of Raymond Lee Cox. If anyone has any information, please contact me. Thank you very much, Bea (Cox) Bonebrake, Rolla, MO, Phelps County

Hello,Goins cousins,I discovered a newspaper article in my Greatgrandmothers family Bible. Her name was Elizabeth Wheeler but her Mother's name was Elizabeth Smallwood and Elizabeth Smallwoods Dad was a ? Smallwood who married an Eliza, don't know her last name. In this bible I found an article about a Aunt Prudy Goins who was celebrating her 106th birthday and whose Dad is listed as Richard Cox who lived to be 105 and her Grandfather who lived in Princton died at age 110 and her Mother in Princeton died at 95. It also stated Prudy was born near Knoxville, Tenn. In 1841 Prudy married Preston Lee Goins and they had 9 children. There is more information listing names of grandchildren and great-grandchildren living in the Kansas City area. In both sets of grandchildren mention a Sylvia Smallwood and Willis Smallwoods names were listed so I figure I might be related to you all.

Hi, I'm the grandaughter of Nellie Williams. She was Lillie Bell Cox's sister. I want to say you've done a great job here. I might have more information if you want Lille Bell's family (Finger). Also, my mother's cousin has done extensive research into the family. He has Homer Cox's mother as Talitha E. Bearden. I can't find anymore about that.

Also, I have a question about Nancy and Samuel Cox, children of Ann Madison and Henry Cox. Their birth dates are after Henry died. Could this be a typo?

Thank you,

I am researching my husband's line. He is descended from David Cox and Brinay Glanton Cox both born in SC (Edgefield Co.?) David Cox had two brothers: Henry Cox m. Nancy Cason d. Wilkinson Co., MS and James Cox d. Edgefield Co. SC. David, Henry, and James' mother's first name was Angelina. Angelina married 2nd Thomas Caison (father of Nancy Cason) in Wilkinson Co., MS. The Cox's were in Edgefield Co., SC in the late 1700s and moved to Wilkinson and Amite Co., MS about 1810. No one has been able to find out who the father of David, Henry, and James. Could they be related to the Henry Cox ("Finding Henry") on your website. Cindy

My wife Carol and I recently purchased an antebellum home in Beech Island, Aiken Co, S.C. It was built in 1826 by Caroline and Wade Glover. If I have this right, she was formerly Caroline Cox(born about 1810 and daughter of Clem Cox) one of your ancestors. We have researched the house and family history and have located Wade's grave in the Glover cemetery, but did not see hers. Is she buried somewhere else? I don't think the Caroline Cox buried at Millbrook Church is her because she was born much later than 1810. If it's not to much trouble, please send me an E-mail with any additional info. you might have. Thanks.

delighted to find your site: my ancestor is John Cox b. 1754 in West Jersey; loyalist in American Revolution; came to Canada in 1783 with the Loyalist emigration. Would love to find out a connection with our American cousins on your side of the border concerning pre-revolutionary times. We have his life well documented after 1777, especially 10 of his 13 children and his wife, Sarah. John & Sarah were early settlers of our province's capital city, Fredericton. Both they and the last 10 of their children died and are buried here in New Brunswick,Canada. We would love to be able to find out if there was a first marriage,perhaps pre-war time and maybe 3 children born to that union. My sister and I have written a 301p. indexed book on John & Sarah Cox and their descendents and are in the process of completing an updated CD Version. Again, nice to talk with you - S.R.D.

Of course, we didn't know many TN folks, but did meet a lot of nice distant cousins!

My mother's grandmother was Ailcey Cox Harrod. Ailcey had 5 children. The youngest was my grandfather, Sharon Love Harrod. Ailcey died when he was 4 and his father remarried Eliza Cox, Ailcey's cousin. They had three children. They lived in Kentucky. Does any of this ring a bell for you? My grandfather would have been born in the late 1860's. I don't know Ailcey's dates. Thank you in advance for anything you can add.

Found your site as I was searching my father's background. His grandparents' (my great-grandparents) surname was Cox. Her name was Jennie Cox. They were from Tangier, Indiana. Jennie was born in the 1800's and died at approx 98 years old sometime in the 1950's-1960's. Some of their children were Marcia, Mote, Leanne, and Hazel. There were 8 to 10 children. Not sure if that includes the twins that died at birth. Do you think that there's any connection here to your family?
