Frances Elizabeth Sandridge was born in Franklin County, Tennessee 11 May 1857. She was named after her grandmother, Frances Donaldson Sandridge and passed the story down through her family that she was helped cared for by a "Negro Mammie". She loved this Mammie very much. She was about 12 years old when her mother died and she then helped her father raise the other children. She traveled with her father by wagon from Tennessee through Arkansas into Missouri during the 1870's to settle around the community of Hutton Valley. It was during this travel that she met William "Bill" Cox, born 30 Nov 1852. Bill was an orphan and had the last name "Knowls" and had changed his last name to Cox when someone by that name had taken him and his brothers, Jim and John and sister Roxie Catharine to raise. Bill and Frances Cox later moved to Oregon County settling on a farm near John Sandridge, her brother. There they remained until their death, his being 16 Apr 1918 and hers 27 Aug 1941. They are buried in the Pleasant Hill Cemetary
