I wish to give my heartfelt thanks, to the many people who have furnished their hard work, research and source documentation, to my family files. I try to double check all records, however, mistakes happen, and if anyone sees an error, please let me know and it will be corrected immediately.
My major project at this time is to find any information on the birth, parents and/or siblings of my elusive Gr-Gr-Grandfather, John Cox, who was born 1808 in North Carolina (Per the 1850 Lauderdale CO., AL Federal Census) possibly at Carthage, Moore CO, NC, where my Gr-Gr-Ggrandmother's father was born, and his father resided.
