Bio being developed:

Nannie Ransom Haines Cox was born on July 19, 1881, and was daughter to Alfred Benton (born April 1848) and Marietta A Cox (born on September 1854).

Married Hubert Barth Cox at Elkton Oregon on November 28, 1906

Initially, they lived at Elkton, but eventually, they moved to Lakeside Oregon.

Adventures In Visiting Hubert and Nannie-

Scott Blackman had the following to say about visiting his grandparents (Laura's parents) who lived at the north end of Ten Mile Lake, their farm being unreachable by road. To paraphrase: "the first way to access the farm was to have my grandfather, Hubert, come down by boat (their only means of travel) to Lakeside Oregon and pick us up and take us back to the farm by water. A trip of about an hour or so (one way) from Lakeside. My grandfather's boat was an inboard, 4 cylinder motor, with hand-built controls. It was large enough that several of us could fit quite comfortably in it. It had no cover, so if it rained we got wet; however, I don't remember it ever raining."

"The second and more adventuresome method was to walk from Lakeside along the railroad tracks which skirted the west side of Ten Mile Lake. This journey took about 2 hours or more and required us walking through two tunnels and over two trestles. It was spooky for me when I was young because my feet wanted to slide between the ties of the trestles. In later years, I remember being more relaxed as my feet grew larger and slipping was no longer a problem. I don't recall being aware of the train schedules of the day, but, we were never caught by surprise in the tunnels or the trestles. In fact, since it was a railway line that had been built mostly to transport logs, I never recall seeing a moving train while walking on the tracks. I did see a steam train go by once when we were at the farm. (It is possibly my folks knew the schedule but it was never talked about.) At the end of the journey (along the tracks) we would arrive directly west across the lake from the farm. The challenge then was to yell (HOOT) loudly enough so that my grandparents would hear and then bring the boat across to pick everyone up. I vaguely remember stories about family members yelling for a long time before they were finally heard at the farm and picked up!"

Later the Coxs moved to Drain Oregon where many, including myself, would visit them at their house adjoined by beautiful flower and vegetable gardens.

Nannie and Hubert had the following children:

Marietta A. (named after her grandmother)
Laura A.
Mary E.
Edith E.
Grover L.
Jean L.
Joyce L.
Elmer S.
Glen E.
Dorothy N.

Confusion arises over Nannie's Oregon Death notice which shows Lane County and last address which is said to be Elkton. Likely, after she died her body was prepared for death at Lane County (Eugene) and then sent back to Elkton where she was buried. Her last address was Drain Oregon.
