Bill was left on orphanage steps when six hours old, on 14 Oct 1921 in Memphis, TN. Porter-Leath Orphanage gave him the name Robert Shelby. He was later adopted and given the name William Marion Cox. He later went by the name of Billy and took his adopted Dad's name, Albert, becoming Albert Bill Cox. He didn't find out he was adopted until he went in to the service and received a foundling certificate instead of a birth certificate. An article was in the Commercial Appeal dated about the 16th of October, 1921, tells the story. His birth date on his headstone is incorrect. His first wife was Martha Jean Jones. His second wife was Jean ?? His last wife was Margie Yarbrough Cox.
