COX - On Wednesday, 11th instant, MARGARET COX, widow of the late John Cox,
in the 52d year of her age.
Dearest mother, thou hast left us,
Here thy less we deeply feel;
But 'tis God who hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.

funeral, from her late residence, 1311 Brown st., on Monday morning next, 16th instant
