Nancy Mundell Cox
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1794
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 2, 1851
Vermilion County
Illinois, USA

Nancy married Seaman (Simon) Henry Cox (b1792 in Virginia) in about 1813 in Pennsylvania. [Seaman is pronounced SHAY-mun]

Nancy and Seaman had 13 children: Charles 1815, Abner 1817, Lot 1819, Adeline 1821 (m. John Dougherty), Melinda 1822, Mary 1823 (m. Elijah Patterson), Jane 1824, Wm 1825 m. "S"), Louisa 1828, Priscilla 1832 (m. Wm Barnhill), Annie 1834, George 1836 and Minerva 1839 (m. Jms Rees).

Nancy is buried in the Cox Family Plot, which might be located on the farm that Seaman and Nancy owned. I'm unable to locate Seaman's burial location; I would think that it would be on the farm with Nancy.

NOTE: I am told there is only a shard of Nancy's headstone that remains; it is safely stored in a structure near the site.

Note: (headstone fragment): "Cox - died Aug 2, 1851". (Contrib. coan) Research done at that time showed that it was most likely Nancy Cox, wife of Simon Cox who were early settlers in that area.

Would never forget you, Grandma. Still looking for info; I'm another in a long line of tenacious Cox's!
