Coleman Cox is the son of Capt. John Cox, Revolutionary War Patriot, and Sarah "Sally" Nunnally. The family moved to Warren County, Kentucky when he was nine years old.
Coleman was converted in the Great Revival on Gasper River in May 1797 and remained a Cumberland Presbyterian the rest of his life.
He married Martha "Patsy" Buchanan on May 10 1808, and they were to have seven children. In 1820 they sold their land in Kentucky and moved with a group of Cox and Buchanan family members to Arkansas Territory.
Martha died in childbirth in 1824; her unknown grave is near Mulberry in Franklin County.
After Indian Territory boundaries were established the family settled in Washington County with other church folk from Kentucky and Tennessee.
Coleman Cox married second to Mary "Polly" Youngbird and they were to have two children. They were charter members of the Cane Hill Congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
Four of Coleman's sons -- Samuel, Burwell, Anderson and Andrew -- became ministers of the Gospel. Coleman Cox died in 1852.
