Bible of William A. Cox

William A. Cox a son of Aaron & Sarah Cox. See 1850-1860 Scott Co.,

Ark., 1840 Taney Co., Mo. At present it appears that Sarah was

related  to Elizabeth Neil (Davis) Ferguson, wife of Henry Wood

Ferguson. It would appear the relationship was through Sarah & not

Aaron, this as only the date of death for Aaron is given, however both

date of birth and death are given for Sarah Cox.

Aaron Cox                d. 17 Mar 1842

Sarah N. Cox             b. 17 Aug 1815 d. 1 Sep 1845

Thomas H. Cox            b. 17 Aug 1834 d. 7 Oct 1856

Elizabeth E. Cox         b. 17 Sep 1835

Wm. A. Cox               b. 12 Mar 1838 d. 1 May 1891

Susan C. Cox             b.  4 Apr 1840

John A. Cox              b. 31 May 1841 d. 31 Aug 1869

Manerva Caroline Cox     b. 10 Mar 1872

Manerva Caroline Everett                d.  4 Nov 1894

Almira M. Cox            b. 21 Apr 1828/38 d. 5 Mar 1871

J.H. Cox                                d. 16 Feb 1897

Sarah Ann Elizabeth Cox                 d.    Mar 1917

John (can't read) Cox                   d. 31 Aug 1869

     The foregoing taken from a photostat copy of the family records

of William A. Cox. William A., Elizabeth E., and John A. Cox, were

children of Aaron and Sarah Cox. These children are found in the home

of Elizabeth N. Ferguson in the 1850 and 1860 census of Scott Co.,

Ark. Aaron Cox is a neighbor to Henry Wood Ferguson in the 1840 census

of Taney Co., Mo., and a neighbor to Henry Wood in the Henry Wood

Ferguson survey in Fentress Co., Tenn.

The fact that both the date of birth and death for Sarah N. Cox is

recorded, but only the date of death for Aaron shown, would indicate

that Sarah N. was the one who was related to the family of Henry Wood

Ferguson. As Henry Wood Ferguson had a proven dau. Juda who was born

in 1815, according to her death certificate, and unless Sarah N. was a

twin of this Juda, it would preclude anyone b. in Aug. of 1815 to have

had a sister born the same year. Therefore it appears more likely that

Sarah N. Cox may have been related to Elizabeth Neil Davis, wife of

Henry Wood Ferguson. This Elizabeth was born in 1796, so it is

conceivable that Sarah N. was a younger sister to this Elizabeth.
