Birth: Jun. 25, 1743
Somerset County
New Jersey, USA
Death: 1838
Virginia, USA

He was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He served in Formen's N. J. Militia. Isaac was born on 25 June 1743 in Somerset County, New Jersey, the son of Phillip & Johanna Trembley Cox. Isaac married Sarah Sutton (1747-1828) in New Jersey and they raised a family of (at least) 5 children. Isaac and his oldest son, Phillip, both saw service in the Rev. War. After the war, the family moved into the land that is now part of Hackers Creek, West Virginia. They stayed there for some time, then the parents and some of the children moved to Greene County, Ohio. While there, Sarah Sutton Cox died and is buried on land that is now part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. (Other family members, including their son, Judge John Cox, and his family are also buried in this Cox Cemetery.)
According to family tradition, Isaac was homesick for the hills of (West) Virginia after losing his wife and moved back East. He lived with his son, Phillip, and his family in the area which is now Slab Creek, Ritchie County, WV, then Isaac moved back to the Hackers Creek area, where he was living when he died in 1838. This biographical information was provided by Fran Miller--daughter of Bob Shuman (a Korean War & Vietnam War vet.), granddaughter of Hallie Cox Shuman, great-granddaughter of Evan Carmack Cox, great-great granddaughter of Philip Cox (a Civil War vet.), great-great-great granddaughter of Isaac Cox, Jr. (a War of 1812 vet.) and great-great-great-great granddaughter of Isaac Cox, Sr. (a Rev. War vet.).
