Emeline's marriage license and birth record states her name as Sally Emeline Whiting. She was called Emeline as her mother was called 'Sally'.
Daughter of Elisha Whiting Jr. and Sally Hulett. Married Frederick Walter Cox, September 16, 1835 in Nelson, Portage Co., OH.
They were the parents of twelve children.
"[Sally] Emeline Whiting Cox was one of God's noble women. She was slender and dark and always trim and neat. Her dark, beautiful hair turned smoothly from a whit brow. Her features were clean cut and in youth or age she was sweet to look upon. So ambitious and active one must keep going to make pace with her swift movements. Her family was always neat and her home tidy. In health she was bright, full of humor and wit. The children loved to hear her tell her droll anecdotes. How we laughed! Our merriment was contagious for she laughed with us. But if you did mischief it was your desire to keep out of her sight. Her look of scorn was almost withering. She was just as ready to commend you for a good deed. She remained ever true and faithful and devoted to the husband of her youth and pride. No one will ever know what it cost her to share him with others, through no one ever robbed her of one jot of his affections and esteem. In age after her family was raised she was endeavoring to console a couple who were going from home on a mission, leaving parents, home and friends. She said, "Why, if I could have my husband to myself I would be willing and happy to go with him to the ends of the earth." No brighter crown than hers will wait the mortals of earth."
