Excerpted by Rebecca Moss from Records of David Edgar Berry & Donald L. Cox:

In 1849 when Samuel was 19 years of age, he married 17 year old Sarah Clarissa Rackley, born in TN. She was previously married to a Mr. Owens and had a daughter, Sarah J. Owens. By 1850 they made their home in Giles Co, TN, where Samuel earned a living as a shoemaker.

By 1860 Samuel & family were living in Old Tishomingo County, MS. In 1870, that part of Tishomingo County became Prentiss County. Samuel moved to near Baldwyn and had changed his profession to a farmer and later a carpenter. In the 1880 Census Samuel & family lived near Booneville where their son John Benson Cox was born. It was with this son John, that Samuel filed a patent for a unique invention related to farm equipment.

In October 1895 Samuel and his family moved to Indian Territory in what became Oklahoma. The small community was known as Kales Switch, later Calera, Bryan County, OK. Samuel's sons, Robert Lee & George W. Cox, had settled in that area earlier and no doubt influenced the parents moving to Oklahoma.
