No, I'm not related. Sorry, no idea where his 1st wife Gertrude is buried. I was just photographing in the cemetery where he's buried.

RE: Commodore Cox
I don't know if we ever met, but I am Commodore's step-son, Chris. (I use C Russell as my screen name on FindAGrave for a number of reasons). I live in St. Clair County, in Shiloh.

His 2nd wife Mary Ann is my mother. I suspect I have the photos you are offering to send. I have done work on the Cox family history and would be happy to share photos and information I have.

Let me know and we can share information.

Are you related to or have a connection to Commodore W. Cox? You added a very nice photo of him and I am curious from where it was obtained.

Thank you,

C Russell

RE: Thomas Richard Cox
I notice on Thomas Richmond Cox's death certificate the information was given by his daughter, Allie Summerville, my mother-in-law. In all her research papers, which I have, she always refers to him as Thomas Richmond and named her first son Arthur Richmond. We have the same person, two middle names.
Do you have pictures of him?

Thomas Richmond Cox
This Thomas Richmond Cox was born in Bucktown, Indiana, Sep 13, 1859; died Linton, Indiana Feb 4, 1944. He was my husbands grandfather, and he knew him well. I have a picture of his stone in the Elnora Cemetery.

He outlived 5 wives; Laurie, Josie, Lillie M, Bessie, Evalina

duplicate memorials

I believe memorial 24081063, created in 2008 and memorial 118072245, created in 2013 are duplicates.
I'm posting this to the creators of both memorials - not my family, I'll leave it for you to sort out.

Regarding your request for a photo from North Lake Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Lady Lake, Florida, for the above, a represenative in the church office advised she is in a Columbarium, Space #34, but there might not be any engraving. A check of the space on July 16, 2015, revealed there is NO engraving on the face plate except for the #34. Do you want me to post the photo of the blank face plate?......... Mike

RE: Susannah (Allen) Cox - Trimble
Yes, I agree that *a* Susanna(I believe surname Cox) married John Cox, (likely in Sullivan County) and lived in Sullivan County with their Cox children. I also agree that when John Cox died, this Susanna Cox married Charles Trimble they lived together with their Cox and Trimble children. Totally agree! I think the census records are right on.

But, I also know that at the same time there was a *Different John Cox* living in *Switzerland* county. He also got married and had children.

So, there *Should* be 2 John Cox marriage records for these two couples.

But there is only ONE marriage record. It is from *Switzerland* county, Not from *Sullivan* county.

And it makes sense that our Sullivan County John and Susanna don't have a marriage record, since all the marriage records in Sullivan county were destroyed in a fire on Feb 7, 1850.

So the *only* record of our Susanna's last name is in that article. (Besides the Switzerland County record, which I fear we must leave to the Switzerland County couple)

for info about Sullivan County Courthouse burning down on Feb 7, 1850. (with destruction of all marriage records)

Blessings Back!
(We are also Christians, hubby a pastor)
Take Care,

RE: Susannah Allen
Hi, I had the exact same thing as you in my tree, Exact, up until a couple of weeks ago. Another ancestry member told me she thought I have the wrong marriage record in my tree, so I set out to prove her wrong (thought it would be easy).

But I ended up changing my mind (and I do try to keep an open mind, just in case facts get updated!)

So, here's what I'm thinking. . .
1. In 1850ish there were over 50 men named John Cox in Indiana.
2. It seems more likely to me that a marriage record from Switzerland County would belong to a John Cox from Switzerland County.
3. Plus, the History of Sullivan county written 1884 (when many in the family were still alive) says Susannah's maiden *and* first married name were *both* Cox, as in Susanna(Cox)Cox.
(Copy and paste below)

(Ignore the 1850 comment for now, which has to do with the John Cox I now think the record belongs to.)

RE: Susannah Allen
Here's ALMOST the same article, which is a direct transcription of Binford, J. H.. History of Greene and Sullivan Counties, state of Indiana . . . . Chicago: Goodspeed Bros. & Co., 1884. But with DIFFERENT Susannah Cox info!!

Charles G. Trimble, farmer, P.O. Carlisle, was born where he now lives, Haddon Township, Sullivan County, Ind., November 26, 1823, one of nine children born to Joseph and Catherine (Carico) Trimble, both of whom were natives of Kentucky, who came to Sullivan at an early day, and where they died, she dying January 8, 1871, and he January 12, 1873. The education of our subject was such as could be obtained from the old subscription schools, and he was reared to farming. September 22, 1851 he was married to Julia Willis, who bore one child, which died in infancy, April 22, 1854, the mother following her loved one in eight months thereafter. December 18, 1856, he was married to Mrs. Susannah (Cox) Cox, by whom he has had five children-- Joseph, September 18, 1857, Benj. F., March 14, 1859, Rush, March 2, 1861, Catherine E., September 5, 1863, Charles E., September 17, 1866, all living but Benjamin, who died August 22, 1877.

Weird, that this version calls Susannah's maiden AND married name Cox (no Allen).

The 1850 census is key, as it shows John Cox living with both his daughters (who you are familiar with) and with his step-father David Kelso. David Kelso was from Switzerland, Indiana, which is where the Cox-Allen Marriage record comes from. Since his wife Susannah (Allen) Cox died, she couldn't have then married Charles Trimble.

The David Kelso story is fascinating as well, not only because Kelsos were pioneers in Tazewell Co. Illinois. . . also because David earlier won an election in Switzerland, Indiana by ONE vote . . . They examined the election so carefully that there was even testimony about the possibility of David's stepson John Cox's possible underage voting.

Anyway, if you'd like to peruse my Ancestry tree, I will send an invite to whatever email address you like.
