Hussey Manuscript H U S S E Y  M A N U S C R I P T  Page


Naomi "Amy" Hussey, daughter of Christopher Hussey and Ann Garretson Hussey, was born 29th, 2nd month, 1742-43 in Warrington, Pennsylvania, according to Martha B. Hollingsworth, Hussey researcher.

Roberta McCormick Smith, a descendant, related an "Indian story" during a visit in 1960 about Naomi "Amy" Hussey:

"My grandmother told me a story that her grandmother told her about her grandmother Amy Cox.  The Hussey home in Pennsylvania was a two-story house, and the girls' bedroom was upstairs.  The girls had a chamberpot in their bedroom for nocturnal use, but they disdained to use it unless absolutely necessary because they had to clean it after every use.  They had devised 'a better way' when they 'had to go.'  They simply went out on the upstairs veranda, raised their gowns and watered the shrubbery below.

One night when the family was all asleep little five-year-old Amy 'had to go.'  She was following routine procedure when a great commotion exploded in the bushes below, and she was startled to see an indignant, half-naked Indian run from his hiding place.

The little girl went flying down the stairs screaming, 'Mama, Mama, I peed on an Indian!"

It is assumed that the Indian chose other bushes for his skulking after that."

Naomi "Amy" Hussey was married about 1760 to Solomon Cox, the son of John Cox and the youngest of 15 children by family tradition.  [Wayne D. Stout in "Our Pioneer Ancestors" states that Solomon Cox was "the fifteenth child of Solomon Cox who was born in 1703 and who was married to Ann Bright, daughter of Richard Bright."] Robert Allen McAlear, Hussey researcher of Nice, California, states that John Cox was married to Mary Harlan.

Alpheus H. Harlan stated in "History and Genealogy of the Harland Family" that Mary Harlan, first child of Moses Harlan and Margaret Ray Harlan was married to John Cox at London Grove Monthly Meeting in Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1735.

Moses Harlan was born "12th month, 20th day 1683 in the Parish of Donnahlong, County of Down, in the Province of Ulster, Ireland.  He was brought to America by his parents, George Harlan and Elizabeth Duck Harlan in 1687.  James Harlan, the father of George Harlan, was born at "Bishoprick nigh Durham, England about the  year 1625 and was reportedly the son of William Harlan."

Alpheus H. Harlan wrote:

"Mary Harlan Cox later went with her husband and her parents into what is now Adams County, Pennsylvania and probably died there, date unknown.  She had at least four children whose identity can be established, among the many of the name Cox, who belonged to the Huntington Meeting in what is now York County, viz:

[1] Jacob Cox, who was disowned by that meeting [Huntington] for disobedience to his father.  He is also named in the will of his grandfather, Moses Harlan.

[2] Amy Cox, who married John Wierman 6th month, 28th day, 1753 at Huntington Meeting.  Her mother was deceased at that time.

[3] Dinah Cox, who married Finley McGrew in 1759, contrary to the usages of Friends.  Her acknowledgment was accepted 6th month, 14th day, 1760, by that meeting for her marriage 'by a priest.'  Finley was born 1st month, 13th day, 1735-36 and died April 9, 1812. They had issue; [a.] John McGrew, [b]. James McGrew, [c.] Mary McGrew, [d.] Nathan McGrew, [e.] Finley McGrew, [f.] Dinah McGrew, [g.] Rebecca McGrew and [h.] Jacob McGrew

[4] Rebecca Cox, disowned 10th month, 11th day, 1760 for 'accompanying her sister Dinah in her marriage out.'"

Finley McGrew and his wife and family removed about the year 1787 and settled in the 'Redstone Settlement,' now in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.  He was a son of James McGrew and his wife, Mary, who brought a certificate from Hopewell Monthly Meeting in Virginia to Warrangton Monthly Meeting in 1750, and is probably the same James McGrew who was a taxable in London Grove township, Chester,  Pennsylvania in 1729-1734.

The following children of James McGrew married cousins to Dinah Cox McGrew, the wife of Finley McGrew: Nathan McGrew married Rachel Blackburn in 1767; Mary McGrew married Moses Blackburn, also in 1767."
 
John Cox had lived in Warrington during the early part of his life, but had removed with his family to Orange County, North Carolina.  He had received a certificate from Warrington Monthly Meeting to remove to Cane Creek Meeting in Orange County for himself and three children, Thomas Cox, Ruth Cox and Solomon Cox.  The minutes of Warrington Monthly Meeting record: "John Cox and three children being removed and settled within the verge of Cain Creek Mo. Mtg North Carolina, a certificate for them is signed 6-21-1755."  Eldon E. Cox, Cox family researcher of Miami, Florida, states that the three children had preceded the certificate to Cane Creek Monthly Meeting.

"Many of the older brothers and sisters, including Benjamin Cox and Martha Garretson Cox, were already in North Carolina.  Of these three younger children Thomas Cox married Martha Jenkins.  I am descended from them.  Ruth Cox married Solomon Cox, son of William Cox and Catharine Kinkey Cox.  I am also descended from them. Solomon Cox married Amy Hussey."

Solomon Cox, probably, and Thomas Cox, probably, were received by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting 6th, 10th month, 1753 on a certificate issued by Newark Monthly Meeting, Kennett, Pennsylvania 5th, 5th month, 1753.

On August 11, 1759 Solomon Cox returned to Warrington Monthly Meeting on a certificate from Cane Creek Monthly Meeting dated June 2, 1759.  On September 15, 1759 this certificate was endorsed back to Cane Creek Monthly Meeting.  About the same time a certificate was granted to Christopher Hussey and family from Warrington Monthly Meeting to Cane Creek Monthly Meeting.  Eldon E. Cox wrote to Mary Alnora "Nora" Cox Drennan April 5, 1970:

"It is my opinion that Solomon Cox returned to Warrington to marry Amy Hussey and returned to North Carolina with the Hussey family.  The marriage could have occurred at either Warrington or at Cane Creek immediately after their arrival.  Their first children (twins) were born in 1761.  According to Quaker custom the fact that a certificate was issued to Solomon Cox from Cane Creek to Warrington would indicate either that he intended to move there permanently or that he had returned to marry.  He could not marry in either meeting without a certificate.  Then it was the custom to give a certificate to both husband and wife when they returned to the husband's home.  No certificate has been found at either Warrington or Cane Creek for Amy Hussey.  This might mean that she came on her father's certificate and that they were married in North Carolina shortly after their arrival.  Neither is there a marriage certificate found for this couple at either Warrington or Cane Creek.  It was not mandatory that the marriage certificate be recorded."

Solomon Cox appeared on a road assignment along with his father-in-law in August 1764, according to Orange County court records.

"Christopher Hussey settled on Mill Creek, not too far from William Cox and Katharine Kinkey Cox and lived on land adjoining Sarah Duskin, a widow, and my great-great-great-great-grandmother," writes Eldon E. Cox.  Solomon Cox and Amy Hussey Cox settled on Richland Creek, some six or eight miles away to the south and next to Stephen Hussey, brother of Amy, and also next to his brother, Thomas Cox and Martha Jenkins Cox.  Solomon Cox purchased this land July 20, 1765 from Benjamin Ellis."

Solomon Cox was disowned by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting February 7, 1767, according to the church records.  He was appointed co-executor with William Moreman [or Wierman] in the will of his brother, Thomas Cox which was probated in November 1771, according to "Guilford County, North Carolina Will Abstracts" by Irene Webster.

On July 27, 1774 Solomon Cox sold his land in Guilford County, which had been formed from Orange County in 1771, according to Guilford County Deed Book 1, page 340.  The deed read:

"27 July 1774.  Solomon Cox and Naomi, his wife, of Guilford County, North Carolina convey to Walter Ashmore of Ashton County, North Carolina land in Guilford County on the fork of Richland Creek, the waters of Deep River joining to Stephen Hussey  to the land that belonged to Thomas Cox, deceased, it being a part of the tract granted to Benjamin Ellis by the Earl of Granville December 25, 1761 and conveyed by Ellis to Solomon Cox 20 July 1765.
          Solomon Cox
          Naomi Cox"

Eldon E. Cox suggests that they might have removed to Grayson County, Virginia at this time, since their son, Thomas Cox was born in Virginia.  It is possible that Solomon Cox anticipated the fierce revolutionary struggle that was about to take place in Guilford County and elected to remove his family to a safer location.  The Battle of Guilford Courthouse was shortly fought there between the forces of General Charles Cornwallis and General Nathaniel Greene.  He writes:

"Whether they were living in North Carolina or Virginia, on December 5, 1778 Solomon Cox and family was granted a certificate from Cane Creek Monthly Meeting to Warrington Monthly Meeting.  The minutes of Warrington of February 13, 1779 record that 'an inquiry to be made into the life and conversation of Solomon Cox since coming here.'  Warrington delayed acceptance of the certificate until investigation revealed that his daughter, Martha Cox was married to her first cousin.  Solomon Cox had taken 'the test' and had owned a slave which he sold prior to his application to Warrington.  The certificate was returned to Cane Creek not accepted."

Rejection of Solomon Cox by Warrington Monthly Meeting nudged Cane Creek Monthly Meeting into action.  On February 4, 1780 Martha Cox was disowned by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting for "marrying out of unity to her first cousin."  On the same date Solomon Cox was disowned by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting for allowing his daughter to marry her cousin and for having owned a slave.

On March 4, 1780 Cane Creek Monthly Meeting granted a certificate to the remainder of the family to remove to Warrington Monthly Meeting.  This apparently indicates a visit made by the family back to York County, Pennsylvania.  The certificate apparently arrived at the hand of a third party.  Warrington Monthly Meeting minutes record, "Solomon Cox's wife and children (except one) certificate from Cane Creek, 8-12-1780, but they being removed from us it is thought best to send it back to that mtg."  Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox, "wife of Solomon, and children" were granted a certificate January 6, 1781 to New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting.

Eldon E. Cox writes, "New Garden was the meeting nearest to Grayson County, Virginia so Amy was still living at that time, contrary to usual reports."  Children mentioned in the certificate include "Mary, Ann, Solomon, Absalom, Christopher, Thomas, Stephen and Amey."  The family was received by New Garden Monthly Meeting June 30, 1781.

Two individuals by the name of Solomon Cox appeared in Montgomery County, Virginia, according to "Virginia Tax Payers, 1782-1787."  It is believed that they were Solomon Cox and his nephew Solomon Cox.  Both later appeared in Wythe County when it was formed from Montgomery County in 1789.  Both reappeared in Grayson County when it was formed from Wythe County in 1792.

It is believed that Solomon Cox removed to Montgomery County about 1785 where he acquired land on the waters of Wilson Creek, a branch of New River.  It is possible that the land was a bounty for military services.  A survey record of the property, recorded in Montgomery County Plat Book D, page 157 reads:

"Surveyed for Solomon Cocks 58 acres of land by virtue of an entry made on the 27th day of April 1790 for a land office treasury warrant for 1000 acres No. 10,391 dated 25th December 1781 part of which is appointed to him by Philip Gaines appointee; Jesse Robinette appointee of Philip Pendleton lying in Montgomery County on a branch of Wilson Creek, beginning at a white oak on said Cock's line  running thence N60 W66 to two white oaks, S40 W140 to a chestnut white oak, S40 E66 to a stake on Cock's line, N40 E164 poles to the beginning."

When Wythe County was formed from Montgomery County in 1789 Solomon Cox and Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox found themselves in the new county.  When Grayson County was formed from Wythe County in 1792 they again found themselves in a new county.  On May 1, 1792 they conveyed their land to David Pugh, according to Wythe County Deed Book 1, page 103.  Both signed the deed.

Solomon Cox bought 30 acres of land on Wilson Creek October 22, 1792, according to Wythe County Land Survey Book 1, page 131.  Apparently Solomon Cox acquired additional land in Grayson County shortly afterwards, it being 540 acres on Cole Creek, a branch of Chestnut Creek which was a tributary of New River.

Apparently the attorney handling the deed to David Pugh in 1792 forgot to get a separate acknowledgement from Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox on the transfer, and three years later a confirmation document was drawn up for her signature.  The document read:

"Solomon Cox and wife to David Pugh: Whereas Solomon Cox and Neomi his wife by their indenture being date 1 May 1792 sold unto David Pugh 330 acres in the county of Grayson, formerly Wythe, and whereas the said Neomi cannot conveniently travel to our county court of Wythe to make her acknowledgement of said conveyance we do give you Gentlemen Justices of Grayson County power to receive the acknowledgement which the said Neomi shall be willing to make before you and we do therefore require you that you do go personally to the said Neomi and receive her acknowledgement and examine her privily and apart from the said Solomon Cox, her husband, whether she doeth the same freely voluntarily without his persuasion threats.  15 April 1795."

She signed the ratification document April 25, 1795, according to Wythe County Deed Book 1, page 352.

Solomon Cox sold additional land to David Pugh February 9, 1796, according to Wythe County Court Order Book 1, page 54.  This was apparently done in preparation for a move to Knox County, Kentucky.  Knox County tax Lists from 1800 to 1812 record "Solomon Cox" as a taxpayer there.  Naomi Cox, daughter of Solomon Cox was married there September 8, 1800.  A second Solomon Cox, believed to be, also appeared in the tax lists of Knox County from 1800 through 1804. Solomon Cox and Christopher Cox, believed to be his son appeared as tax delinquents in Knox County in 1805.

Other contemporary Cox individuals who appeared in Knox County records include Thomas Cox, [possibly Thomas Isaac Cox]; John Cox and Jess Cox.

It is believed that Solomon Cox removed to Ross County, Ohio about 1813.  The new state, which had been admitted to the Union ten years earlier, was being rapidly populated.  When Virginia ceded its claim to Ohio land to the Federal government in 1784 it reserved 4,250,000 acres between the Little Miami and the Scioto Rivers as bounty land to be awarded to its Revolutionary War veterans, and the area was settled primarily by Virginians and Kentuckians.  Chillicothe, [Indian word for town] Ohio was organized in 1796 and was temporarily the capital.

The Revolutionary War was succeeded by a series of Indian uprisings all along the frontier.  The Ohioans lost the first two wars to the Indians.  General Josiah Harmar was soundly defeated by them, and General Arthur St. Clair failed in his campaign because of the military's ignorance of the Indians' fighting tactics.  General Anthony Wayne became the hero of the Northwest Territory in 1794 when his dragoons decisively removed the Indian threat to Ohio in the Battle of the Fallen Timbers.

In 1818 Ross County and Athens County, Ohio gave up land to form Hocking County, Ohio.  A Solomon Cox and a Jacob Cox appeared in the 1818 tax list of Hocking County, according to "Early Ohio Tax Records" by Esther Weygandt Powell.  They reappeared in the 1821 tax list of Hardin County, Ohio.

Solomon Cox wrote his will September 9, 1819 at Eagle township, according to Hocking County Deed Book A, page 1.  The record, transcribed from Ross County Deed Book of 1818, read:

"In the name of God Amen.  I, Solomon Cox, late of Hocking County and State of Ohio, considering the uncertainty of this mortal life being weak of body but sound and perfect mind and memory blessed by almighty God for the same do make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following:  That is to say first I give and bequeath unto my eldest daughter Martha Cox the sum of one dollar which is her full share of my estate with what she hath already had.  I also give and bequeath unto my daughter, Mary Cox and her heirs one dollar which is their full share of my estate with what she and they hath already had.  I also give and bequeath unto my daughter Ann Perkins one dollar which is her full share with what she already hath.  I also give and bequeath unto my son, Absolom Cox one dollar which is his full share of my estate with what he already hath.  I also give and bequeath unto my son Christopher Cox one dollar which is his full share with what he hath already had.  And I also give and bequeath unto my son Thomas Cox one dollar which is his full share with what he already had.  I also give and bequeath unto my son Stephen Cox one dollar which is his full share with what he hath already had.  I also give and bequeath unto my daughter Amy Mahan one dollar which is her full share with what she already hath.  And as to all the residue and remainder of my estate, goods and chattels of what kind and nature soever it may be to be equally divided between my loving wife Amy Cox and my son Solomon Cox, share and share alike and what live stock there may be the same to keep or dispose of at their election.  And lastly I do appoint my son Solomon Cox and William Dixon sole executors of this my last will and testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made.

In witness whereof I have herewith set my hand and seal this ninth day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and nineteen.

Solomon Cox appeared as the head of a household in Eagle township of Hocking County, page 66, in the 1820 census of the county.

Notations on the back of the will of Solomon Cox record that the will was probated July 3, 1820 by Solomon Cox and William Dixon.  The will was proved by "oaths of Cox and Ratliff, the subscribing witnesses."

Robert Allen McAlear, a descendant of Nice, California, wrote in February 1978 that Solomon Cox died in Hocking County in 1820 and that legal notice regarding the probate of his will appeared in the August 3, 1820 edition of "Scioto Gazette."  He also suggested that Solomon Cox had not reaffiliated with the Quaker church since his will began with "In the name of God . . ", a form that Quakers disdained to use in their wills.

The will of Solomon Cox was probated in Hocking County in July 1820, according to county records.  The probate read:

"To all to whom these presents shall come, Greetings:  Know ye that John Thompson, president and Benj. Beadle and Abraham Bitcher, Esquires, associate judges of the Court of Common Pleas of said County at the Courthouse at Logan, in session on the 3rd day of July, AD 1820.  The last will testament of Solomon Cox, late of said County, deceased, was proved by Nicholas Cox and Alexander Graves, two of the subscribing witnesses thereto, and is now proved and approved by us, and the said deceased, while living, and at his death, was possessed of goods and chattels and credits within this State by means whereof the proving and registering the same will and granting administration of all and singular the goods, chattels and credits, and also the auditing and allowing and finally adjusting the accounts, the administration of all and singular the goods, chattels and credits of said deceased, any way concerning his will is granted unto Solomon Cox and William Dixon named in said will, they being first so sworn, will and faithfully to administer the same by first paying the debts and then the legacy contained in said will so far as the property will thereunto extend, or Law direct, and make a true inventory of all the said goods, chattels and make a true account thereof when so required.

In testimony hereof, we on the day and year aforementioned, have caused the Seal of our said Court to be hereunto affixed and order these presents to be attested.

In witness hereof, I, Royal Converse, Clerk of said Court, have set my hand this 3rd day of July AD 1820.
      Royal Converse, Clerk"

[Photostatic copies of the above documents were furnished to Mary Alnora "Nora" Cox Drennan, Cox researcher of Aspermont, Texas, by Common Pleas Court, Hocking County Probate and Juvenile Division, Logan, Ohio.]

Children born to Solomon Cox and Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox include:

 Martha Cox (twin)   born about 1761
 Solomon Cox (twin)   born about 1761
 Rutha Cox     born about 1763
 Mary Cox      born in 1769
 Ann Cox      born about 1771
 Christopher Cox    born in 1773
 Thomas Isaac Cox   born December 5, 1775
 Absalom Cox     born in 1777
 Stephen Cox (twin)   born in 1779
 Naomi "Amy" Cox (twin) born in 1779

Martha Cox, twin daughter of Solomon Cox and Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox, was born "29th day of January, 5th day of the week, AD1761" in Orange County, North Carolina, according to the family bible.  She was married about 1778 to her first cousin, Samuel Cox, who was born in 1754 to Samuel Cox and Hannah Wierman Cox.  On February 4, 1780 Martha Cox Cox was disowned by Cane Creek Monthly Meeting for "marrying out of unity to her first cousin" and her father was disowned at the same time for allowing it to happen.  They protested unsuccessfully to the Quakers that they were not pure first cousins since they had different maternal grandmothers.

Apparently they joined her parents in moving to Virginia where all of their children were born, probably in Grayson County on the North Carolina border.  Samuel Cox, believed to be, served as a Revolutionary soldier for three years in the Third Virginia Regiment and the Seventh Virginia Regiment during the conflict, according to a letter written September 29, 1939 by R. A. Lancaster, Jr, Secretary, Virginia Historical Society.  His military record should be available from the Adjutant General, Washington, D.C.  He received Military Land Warrant No. 2616 for 100 acres of Kentucky land February 24, 1784.

He took out 100 acres of land on Naked Fork in Knox County, Kentucky under the military warrant April 25, 1797, according to research done in 1938 by Elmer Decker, an attorney of Barbourville, Kentucky, for John Wesley Perkins, Williamsburg, Kentucky, a descendant of Solomon Cox and Naomi "Amy" Hussey Cox.

About 1805 they removed to Knox County, Kentucky along with other members of the Cox family.  In the census of 1810 there were 19 Cox heads of families in Knox County including Samuel Cox.

Apparently Samuel Cox [or his son Samuel Cox,] made a trip back to Grayson County, Virginia in the summer of 1810 in an attempt to sell his property there.  John Cox gave him power of attorney to collect payment on the sale of his property there also, according to Knox County Deed Book B, page 112:

"Know all men by the presents that I, John Cox, of Knox County and State of Kentucky have made, ordained, constituted and appointed, and by these presents do make, ordain, constitute and appoint Samuel Cox, Junr., my true and lawful attorney for me and in my name, but for my use to do, perform and transact all my business in the State of Virginia to make a deed of conveyance to a certain tract of land lying in Grayson County in the State of Virginia, it being the same which Robert Still sold as agent for me to a certain William Byers, to collect all money or moneys which may be due me and to transact any other business which may be necessary for my welfare and well standing in the State of Virginia, and what ever lawful act my said attorney may do or cause to be done for me and in my name I do hereby by these presents ratify and confirm,  In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 28th day of August, 1810.

        John Cox
Teste:  Nathan Cox

On November 10, 1910 Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox sold their property in Grayson County, Virginia, according to Knox County Deed Book B, page 118:

"This indenture, made this 10th day of November in the year 1810 between Samuel Cox of the County of Knox and State of Kentucky and Martha Cox, wife of said Samuel Cox, of the one part, and John Wisman, of the County of Wythe and State of Virginia, of the other part,  Witnesseth, that for and in consideration of five hundred dollars in hand paid to the said Samuel Cox and Martha, his wife, by said John Wisman the receipt whereof the said Cox and his wife doth hereby acknowledge he the said Cox and Martha, his wife, have given, granted, bargained and sold, and by these presents do give, grant, bargain, sell, convey and confirm unto the said Wisman one certain tract or parcel of land containing one hundred and fifty acres, lying and being in the County of Grayson on the waters of Fox Creek in the State of Virginia . . ."

Samuel Cox, probably took out a certificate for 10 acres of land on the Cumberland River in Knox County January 14, 1811.  They found themselves in Whitley County when it was formed in 1818 from Knox County.  Martha Cox Cox was mentioned in the will of her father written in 1819.

Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox sold 20 acres of their farm December 20, 1819 to provide a townsite for Williamsburg, Kentucky, proposed county seat for the new county, and received a premium price of $50 per acre, according to Whitley County Deed Book 1, page 14:

 "Cox, Samuel, Sr. white male 70-80
      white female 60-70
      white male 20-30
      white female 20-30"

Samuel Cox died July 29, 1832 in Whitley County at age 76, according to the family bible.  He was survived by his widow and six children.  When several of their first children died at young age the parents may have pondered the prudence of the Quaker ban on the marriage of cousins.

Martha Cox Cox joined her son Nathan Cox in a move to Livingston County, Missouri about 1842 and died there March 19, 1845 "10 minutes before 2 o'clock, age 84."  She was buried in Liggett Cemetery near Chillicothe, Missouri.

 Anna Cox       born April 9, 1779
 Sarah Cox       born August 20, 1781
 Zachariah Cox     born January 28, 1784

Sarah Cox, daughter of Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox, was born "20th of 8th month, AD1781" in Virginia.  She was mentioned as "daughter of Samuel Cox" in Whitley County Deed Book 1, page 86 recorded about 1824.  She may have remained unmarried.

Zachariah Cox, son of Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox, was born January 28, 1784 in Virginia.  He died before 1798.

Mary Cox, daughter of Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox, was born March 7, 1786 in Virginia.  She died April 7, 1823 at age 37, according to the family bible.

Anna Cox, daughter of Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox, was born March 12, 1788 in Virginia.  Of this individual nothing more is known.

Samuel Cox, son of Samuel Cox and Martha Cox Cox, was born October 25, 1790 in Virginia.  "Samuel Cox, Jr." purchased land in Knox County from his father August 10, 1810 apparently in preparation for his impending marriage. He purchased additional land on the following day from John Cox.

He may have been the individual who received power of attorney August 28, 1810 from John Cox to collect money due him on the sale of his property in Grayson County, Virginia.  He was married about that time to Jane McClure [her name appeared as Jana McCluer in the family bible] who was born May 12, 1790.  He appeared as "Samuel Cox, Jr," the head of a household in the 1820 census of Whitley County which was created in 1818 with land from Knox County.

He may have been the individual who appeared as constable in Williamsburg in March 1826, and he may have been the one who was appointed sheriff of Whitley County in June 1828.

He reappeared as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Whitley County as:

 "Cox, Samuel, Jr. white male 30-40
      white female 40-50
      white male 15-20
      white male 10-15
      white female 5-10
      white female 0-5"

They sold land to Jesse Beams December 21, 1840 and to Isham Jones April 26, 1841, according to Whitley County deed records.  It is believed that he died shortly afterwards.

Jane McClure Cox appeared in the 1850 census of Harrison County, Missouri, District 27, as the head of Household 190-205.  The family was rendered as:

 "Cox, Jane 59, born in Virginia, $1,500 real estate
 Samuel G.  19, born in Kentucky, farmer, attending       school
 Nathan B. H. 17, born in Kentucky, farmer, attending       school
 William H. 13, born in Kentucky, idiotic"

In an adjoining Household 189-204 appeared the family of her daughter Sarah "Sally" Cox Cox and her husband Jarvis P. Cox.  Also in an adjacent location was the family of her daughter Martha Jane Cox Cox who was married about a year earlier to a cousin Solomon Benjamin Cox.  The whereabouts of Jane McClure Cox after this date is unknown.

Children born to Samuel Cox and Jane McClure Cox include:

 Fleming Trigg Cox    born November 24, 1811
 Quarles Hampton Cox   born April 6, 1813
 Andrew McClure Cox   born July 12, 1816
 Sarah "Sally" Cox    born about 1823

 Martha Jane Cox     born in 1829
 Samuel G. Cox     born in 1831
 Nathan B. H. Cox     born in 1833
 William H. Cox     born in 1837

Fleming Trigg Cox, son of Samuel Cox and Jane McClure Cox, was born November 24, 1811 in Whitley County.  The name "Fleming Trigg" which has been handed down for many generations in the Cox family was a "political compliment," according to Emma Normand, foremost authority on the history of the Bell County Coxes, who wrote:

"It is well known that after the American Revolution soldiers were paid for their services during the war in grants of land in the western reaches of some of the original states.  These regions were later cut off and organized into new states.  Our Fleming Trigg Cox was born in the heart of such a region.  Fleming and Trigg were two men who had something to do with those land grants.  I do not know their subsequent careers, but they must have become well known locally while acting as land commissioners.  Fleming and Trigg had married sisters, 'the Christian girls,' whose brother, a Mr. Christian, was a member of the Virginia Assembly."

Fleming Trigg Cox was married about 1829 to Mary "Polly" Guinevere Leigh [pronounced Lay] who was born in November 1815 and who was related to the Hampton family, according to Emma Normand.  She wrote, "There is a tombstone for an old man by the name of Hampton in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery lot of Samuel Hampton Cox.  Hiram Reynolds Cox, his grandson, told me the old man was a kinsman of his great-grandmother Polly Cox.  The presence of Quarles Hampton Cox in the family of Samuel and Jane McClure Cox shows that there might have been some connection between the Cox and Hampton families before Mary G. Leigh married Fleming Trigg Cox.  They were all in Whitley County."

He appeared as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Whitley County listed as:

 "Cox, Flemmon white male 20-30
      white female 15-20"

In 1835 he joined Daniel Cox in purchasing 100 acres on Tacket Creek, according to Whitley County deed records.  Shortly afterwards he removed to Missouri.  "Fleming Cox, born 1810-20," believed to be, appeared as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Jackson County, Missouri.  One report shows him in Harrison County, Missouri in the middle 1840s.

Fleming Trigg Cox arrived in Bell County, Texas about 1855.  On December 18, 1856 he received a Third Class Patent from the State of Texas to 320 acres of land, according to Texas Land Commission Book 208, survey 15.  The land was originally in Falls County, Texas, but his area was transferred to Bell County by the Sixth Texas Legislature, according to Bell County Deed Books 60 and 84.  His preemption certificate, signed by Gov. J. E. M. Pease, located the land "in Milam District, Bell County, on Noland's Creek, 8
He appeared there as the head of a household in the 1860 census.  The family was composed of:

 "Cox, Fleming Trigg 45, born Kentucky
 Mary Leigh   44
 Martha J.    16
 Hannah    14
 Mary     11
 John     8
 George W.   6
 Sara     3
 Naomi     5/12"

Fleming Trigg Cox received a deed June 2, 1869 to 140 acres, "out of the S. H. Cox survey of 184 acres, being the west half" from his son Samuel Hampton Cox and Nica Jane Cox Cox for $500, according to Bell County Deed Book M, page 448.  Although the deed was properly recorded, the county clerk could not locate the record, and a confirmation deed was executed January 9, 1883 to "140 acres located 10
Fleming Trigg Cox died in 1904, and Mary "Polly" Guinevere Leigh Cox survived him for a few years.  "I have a wonderful group picture made in the early 1900s of Mary G. Leigh Cox and the seven children who were living at that time; four sons and three daughters," wrote Emma Normand.

Children born to Fleming Trigg Cox and Mary "Polly" Guinevere Leigh Cox include:

 Samuel Hampton Cox born September 3, 1831

Samuel Hampton Cox, son of Fleming Trigg Cox and Mary "Polly" Guinevere Leigh Cox, was born in Whitley County September 3, 1831, according to the research of Emma Normand.  He may have preceded his father to Texas and may have influenced him to move there.  A "Samuel Cox," possibly appeared in the 1850 census of Bexar County.  This individual was employed by the U.S. Army as a "waggoner, Quartermaster Depot, out on a haul, age & place of birth unavailable."

He was married January 14, 1853, according to Bell County Marriage Book A, page 25, to his second cousin once-removed, Nica Jane Cox, daughter of Joseph Cox and Ama "Amy" Baker Cox who was born July 12, 1834 in Missouri.

Emma Normand wrote July 30, 1983:

"The story goes that Joseph Cox cavorted when Jane married her cousin Samuel H. Cox. Aunt Jane in her old age told my mother that for a time after her marriage if she wished to see her mother, she was careful to choose a time when her father was not at home.  But he became reconciled to the marriage and wrote a letter about four years later in which he boasted, 'Jane Cox has a fine son.'

The Samuel Hampton Coxes were our closest neighbors for nine years.  Our place was a small part of the original Joseph Cox place; only Post Oak Branch separated it from the place of Samuel Hampton Cox and Jane Cox (Uncle Sam and Aunt Jane to us).  The Samuel Hampton Cox place was a part of the Fleming Trigg Cox homestead.  Fleming Trigg Cox had died in 1904 before we came to that community, and his youngest son, George Washington Cox, was living near the original homesite and a fine spring.  Mary Genevera Cox was living with a daughter, Mary Cox Middleton, a little nearer Nolanville, but also on a place that had originally been part of the Fleming Trigg Cox land.  When my mother first met Mrs. F. T. Cox, she said, 'You can call me Aunt Polly; everybody else does.'

The Pleasant Hill Cemetery was also carved out of the Fleming Trigg Cox holding.  The original owners of the site are buried near the gate of the old part of the cemetery."

Samuel Hampton Cox received Preemption Certificate No. 34 issued by Bell County Court December 17, 1856.  He received a patent from the State of Texas signed by Gov. H. R. Runnels January 3, 1858 for 283 acres located "on the north side of Noland's Creek, 8 miles northwest of Belton," according to Bell County Deed Book H, page 428.  They deeded the west half of this land to his father June 2, 1869.

Samuel Hampton Cox deeded a lot to the Farm Council for $5 November 17, 1877, perhaps for an office or meeting hall, according to Bell County Deed Book 29, page 46.  The plot was located on "South Nolen Creek, part of the Fleming Cox survey."

He was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1880 census of Bell County, Enumeration District 7, page 18, precinct 7:

 "Cox, Sam 48, born in Kentucky

Cox" for $500, according to Bell County Deed Book 39, page 424.  The deed exempted "two acres reserved for graveyard, now the property of G. W. Cox [George Washington Cox].
