WIlliam Cox's first wife was Elizabeth Floyd. They had two daughters, Georgiana and Mary Lewis Cox, who both stayed in Bertie Co., NC. Elizabeth Floyd Cox died there about 1839.
William married second to Jane Woodard, about 1845. They had six children: Henrietta Virginia, Margaret Ann, William R., Robert H., John Thomas and Ida Jane Cox. All of these are buried in Bartholomew Co. except Robert (his final resting place is unknown.)
The Coxes departed North Carolina after the Civil War, hoping for better health and prosperity than their prospects in the devasted deep south.
The Coxes brought a Negro woman, Arcadia Wiggins and her daughter Julia Ann, with them to Indiana from Bertie Co. Arcadia does not appear to have ever been a slave; but had lived with the Coxes since childhood. Both Arcadia and Julia Ann remained in the Cox household in Indiana, and are presumed to be buried in the Sweeney Cemetery.
