    Sent to S. Kouns from Bill Newman 7/11/09 ...the email address for Dan Cox who sent it to Bill is not good.

    Sharon, I had this old email. I see in another place that George Courtney Cox may have been born in 1893. Unsure of why that may be unless the older one died and they reused the name, which has happenened before.

    Bill, Finally got the letter from my grandma. She lives in Joshua Tree which is about a three hour drive from where I live. She has included the following info about the family of A.J. Cox. He was born April 27, 1867. His wife, Emma Lee Conner was born October 2 1876. Their first born was Melvin, born Jan. 28, 1892. Laura Cox (Bramel) was born Oct. 2, 1894. Carrie Cox (Bramel) was born Sep. 26, 1895. They married brothers. Naomi Cox (Johnson) was born April 3, 1897. Elbert Cox was born April 1899 and was killed in action July 18, 1918. The VFW building in Rushville, Indiana was named after him and is in fact the Cox VFW building. Albert was born June 7, 1901. My grandfather, George Courtney Cox was born Sep. 9, 1903. He was a grocer most of his life, spent WWII in the Seabees stationed on Adak and Kodiak. He moved to California in the early 50's and died Feb 1979. He married Ruth Cox (Black) in 1924 and had two children; Robert E. Cox, my father, born Jan 28, 1925 and George Norman Cox born in 1930. Price Cox born Nov. 8, 1905. Charles Cox born Feb. 5, 1908. Mable Cox born Jan. 29, 1911(she never married).
    My grandma also wrote a little about the Hobbs family which seems closely connected with the Coxes. They moved to Rushville after the Coxes did, most probably to work in the saw mill. There were also two lumber yards that they worked at. Mr. Hobbs name was Aaron but every one called him Uncle "A". A.J.'s mother was married to a Hobbs who died in a civil war prisoner camp. She then remarried to Joel S. Cox. My grandma also says that A.J. had a brother named Joel who was a teacher even though he only went to the sixth grade. A.J.'s wife, Emma Lee, never went to school at all and could not read or write. After Elbert was killed the government gave them a pension of $50.00 a month and they bought an 8 room house on Spencer St. for $1200.00. A.J. moved his family to Rushville in 1911. Charles was a year old and Mable was born in Rushville.-Dan

    Notes:

    Author of "Our Family Tree, Roots & Branches"

    Her words from her book:
    When Nora was born her father named her Nora Golden Cox, but in later years changed it to "Belle" after one of her schoolteachers. The following is written by Nora Cox Clark:

    After my Dad's death we moved to Idaho arriving Dec. 26, 1909. Mother's brother, Even Jackson Spencer, had a farm in the Randall Flat District near Troy, Idaho. He wrote to Mother that if she would move to Idaho he would help her with us children. So plans were made for the move and Mother sold all her livestock, machinery and household goods so she would have the money to go to Idaho. She had a very good watchdog that was brought into the house at night to guard the door. The night before we left the dog awoke Mother by making a sucking growl at the door. She got up quickly and there were some people outside lunging against the door trying to get in. She screamed, "John, get the gun!" and when the ones outside heard her theyleft. Mother stayed up the rest of the night in case they came back. Since they didn't have telephones to spread news in those days she always figured it was not "strangers" but someone that knew she had sold everything and was leaving the next day so must have cash in the house.

    We traveled on the train to Idaho and Mother fixed lunches for us to have something to eat on the train. Milford was to care for me; John to care for Carl; Jess and Brackston were to stay close to Mother who was carrying Charlie. Milford was taking me to the restroom and I had my arms stretched out and got a finger caught in the door. I can still remember it clearly. One day a lady with a little boy was sitting across the aisle from us. The lady had fixed a lunch for her little boy; but I wanted his lunch and I cried. The lady asked Mother how far we were going and when she was told "Idaho" she gave me the lunch because they weren't going very far.

    We arrived on Dec. 26, 1909, and lived with Uncle Even Spencer and family until spring. Times were hard and the bank foreclosed on his farm in the spring and the Spencer family moved to Canada. James Harvey Bailey was staying at the Spencers. He was born and raised in Lee County, Virginia. Mother and James H. Bailey were married that year and we moved into a log house owned by Lenard Marks.

    One day we needed some groceries so Mother and Jess walked several miles to Troy, Idaho, to get them. John and Milford were working somewhere so they were not at home. Brackston was suppose to take care of us little ones. There were a couple of men working in the timber not far from our house. Brackston decided to go over to where they were so he left locking the door on the rest of us. Carl decided he wanted to go out too, so he locked Charles and I in the house. Charles was little but walking and he got one of the boy's coats and put it in the open fireplace. There were hot coals in there and it scared me, so I thought that if I got it out and put it under the bed no one would ever know. When Mother and Jess arrived home the house was full of smoke; there was lots of excitement for awhile. Jess had carried a 50lb sack of flour on his shoulders for several miles but he really could move when he thought the house was on fire.

    We moved to Mr. Lowry's farm in the Randall Flat District. Mr. Lwory was the depot agent in Troy, Idaho, then. At this place my brother, George Lee Bailey was born April 16, 1912. Mabel Spencer, Dave Spencer's daughter, came and took care of Mother and George and cooked for the rest of us. James H. Bailey had left my Mother and moved away; he never did see his son George. James had a tragic death at Northport, Washington in 1916.

    We spent one Christmas in a sled to Avon, Idaho, to visit Fergerson (Forge) Bailey. I was just a kid at the time, but heard later that he had killed a man in Virginia or Kentucky. He left his family and fled to Idaho. I don't know if he spent the rest of his years in Idaho or what happened to him....
