Bio Photo I am always happy to add additional information, create links, or make corrections to the memorials i have entered. I will try to do this as soon as possible. Please use the edit tab when sending the information.

You have permission to use of my gravestone photos. All I ask is that I be given credit for taking the photo.

An explanation for some of the causes of death:

Catarrh Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lung tissue associated with catarrh and with marked evidences of inflammation of the bronchial membranes - often chronic.

Thank you for linking John Orville "J.O." Cox to Cora Chambard.

Over the next several weeks I will add photos to this and other family member pages, perhaps with some Editing suggestions.

I have an extensive collection of Cox/Williams historical photos, letters, documents and family memories.

We are planning a mini-reunion for June 30/July 1 in Humboldt and Emmetsburg to see the "old family sites".

Thank you for all you have been doing! Bob

I am wondering if you are a relative of Cora Williams Cox Chambard? I am her grandson, a son of her son Luin Cox. Might we be related?

Would you allow me to take over as the Contributor Contributor for her Find A Grave page? Perhaps for other Chambard/Williams/Cox pages you manage?

What are your thoughts? Thanks so much, Robert Luin “Bob” Cox, Phoenix, AZ

RE: William Charles Jeffers
I guess I should be more specific when sending a message like this. :-)

I saw a William Charles Jeffries, born 15 Jun 1864 in Wood County, Ohio and died 24 December 1926 in Hamilton County, Nebraska and buried in Palisade Cemetery, Hitchcock County, Nebraska with wife Emma Jeffries. The original record was submitted by Lillie Oppie, but it shows that you maintain it.

I thought maybe there was confusion with the Charles William Jeffers who is the son of Joseph & Mary Budd Jeffers and is buried in Alliance, Box Butte, Nebraska.

Just for your own information, Charles Williams birth year is on his headstone as 1864, but he was 7-years-old on the 1870 census, taken in August, so I've got his birth year as 1863.

Take care,

William Charles Jeffers
Hi Georgea, It's me again. :-) Neither of the William Jeffers/Jeffries pictured in this photo is the son of Joseph and Mary Budd Jeffers. Their son, William Charles Jeffers, or Charles as he was known in his later years, died 11 November 1955 in Alliance, Box Butte, Nebraska and is buried in the Alliance Cemetery. Charles married Anna Belle Miller, who died 19 Oct 1951 and is also buried in the Alliance Cemetery. Their headstones are on findagrave - can you link them to Mary and Joseph?

Thank you for the great work you're doing!!
