    • From book by Nora Cox Clark:
      "Our grandfather Joel Sturgis Cox had blue eyes, sandy hair and whiskers. Most of the ancestors for the Cox line had light blue eyes and light sandy hair to medium brown hair. Our grandmother Naomi Reasor Hobbs Cox had black hair and dark brown eyes. We have been told that she was part Cherokee Indian, but we have not been able to verify that. Since we have been able to trace most lines in Naomi's line except Susannah Jackson that married Daniel Reasor in Johnson county, Tennessee, who are Naomi's grandparents, it would seem that it would be through the Jackson line. Certainly the black straight hair and the dark eyes that appears in each generation would indicate that there is a strong blood line somewhere in the background. Rebecca Cox was six feet tall and very slim. There are many slim people in both the Cox and Spencer line."

      [note from smk: Which Rebecca Cox was she referring to? ...I have heard my line also has Indian blood through Lydia Cox. If you have more, please share.]
