Notes for William Henderson Cox
So far as I can tell there is no relationship between this William Cox and my Cox/Cock ancestors, but since I do have Cox relatives in Morgan Co., I want to keep track of William and his Cox descendants who are in the Morgan/Rowan Co. area to help me keep straight which Cox families in Kentucky are my relatives and which aren’t.
Also, at least two of his children married children of John F. Fyffe and Martha Slusher, sister of my GG Grandmother Mahala Slusher.
In the 1900 census William was listed as age 70, born June 1829, widowed, with his son David Martin Cox.
