He was a man of some education and filled the offices of Justice of the Peace and County Commissioner and also represented the County of Knox in the state Legislature. He was a professor of religion and as he grew in years, he more closely followed the Master. His death was caused by a fall from a wagon, while returning from church. The brother Gabrial lived for a few years in that first little church on the banks of Maria Creek. While living in that little church Austin Cox was born; he grew to young manhood, went through the Civil War, came home to live in Freelandville where he was Postmaster for some years. Gabrial Cox died at middle age, leaving a widow and eleven children..."
