Ruth Ann,
Here is all I have on Absolom COX. The first comes
from the Andrea papers: Will of Edward wife
listed...children: Thomas (Ex), Elijah (Ex), Absolom (Ex) and Jemima
PARKER. This is from Currituck Co. NC.
Also from Land Grants after the Revolution: 430 acres on Norris Creek,
Abbeville, SC, to Absolom COX, 6-8-1810.
Greenville Co.,SC census for 1830 shows Absolom COX,age 50-60.
Finally this notation. " Absolom COX came to IL from Abbevlle,SC, in
1804 and established a Ferry across the Kaskaskia River about 6 miles
above Evansville (IL).COX served as a Capt. of Militia during the period
of Indian unrest in the territory. COX's Ferry remained for many years,
an important crossing. Absolom had four sons: John, William, Thomas, and
Absolom." This from Randolph Co.,IL.

Here is a paragraph from "A History of The Cox Pioneers" by The Rev.
John E. Cox dated 1931. I have found a few errors in this book, but
in most part it is correct.

"ABSOLEM COX" The U. S. Census of 1820 shows that Asolem Cox lived
in Lynn township, Posey County, Indiana. In 1830 he lived in
Robinson township. There is an Absolem Cox living in Stewartsville,
Indiana. It is probable that he is a grandson of the old pioneer. I
can learn but little of this family. There is a business man in this
city (Evansville, Indiana) who is a nephew of the present Absolem,
who has a wife and quite a family of children. They have a son who
is a young preacher of the Missionary Baptist Church. I have learned
that his name is Rev. Alvin Cox and he lives in Ridgway, Illinois. I
regret that I know so little about this family of Pioneer Coxes.
Absolem is in very poor health.

My records show that Absolem Cox, Sr. C1770-???? married Martha
Garris c1772-????
children are:
Furneyford Cox
Absolem Cox, Jr.
Argent Cox
Daniel Cox
Noah Cox
Stephen Cox
Margaret Cox
Kessiah Cox
John "Turkey" Cox 1810-1876 married Sarah Wade 1812-1876
John T., Jr.
Absolem Cox c1832 married Nancy Allison
Alfred A. Cox c1833
David Cox c1834
Joseph Cox c1835
Sarah Cox c1836
Martha Cox 1837-1908 married W. A. Kincheloe 1830-1924
Furney Cox c1839
Mary Cox c1841
Joseph Cox c1836
Sarah Cox c1838
Martha Cox c1839

Those persons under "Turkey" are his children by Nancy Allison

bullet Alfred E. COX(26) (5) was born in 1844. Alfred H. Cox was born in Indiana. He married Martha Jane Sanders on November 28, 1867. Martha’s friends and family called her Mandy. They had 4 sons, John William, Henry, Benjamin Harrison, and Alvin. Alfred’s family, according to the 1880 census, was living in Center Township, Posey County, Indiana. He fought as a Union Soldier and was part of the second, or tenth Calvary, during the Civil War. Family legion states he was with General Sherman in Atlanta. He was said to have been a Sargent. After the war, Alfred came home to Evansville, Posey County, Indiana and married. He worked as a reaping machine agent. It was possibly his work led him to Craighead County, Arkansas. One day, he headed west, crossed the Mississippi by swimming with his clothes around his neck, and found a place for his family to live. He went back to Indiana and got his family. They built a barge and brought their things across the river. At that time the Cash River Bottom as it was called, was all woods with lots of good virgin logging timber. There was a little train that went back in the bottom. The logs were transported out of the bottom on that track. The train was called old Blaze. Old Blaze went through Bono. After arriving in Bono, he homesteaded property. As with all of our ancesters before him, he and his sons had to build their house, clear the land, grow their own food, and supply their own water. Electricity was not invented, so making candles, soaps, medicines, teas, etc were part of every day life. Alfred, before he died, saw all of his children except Alvin marry and have children. Helped them to establish thier own homes and enjoyed his grandchildren. He buried one of his sons Alvin who died in March 1899. People walked along the railroad track they called Old Blaze going to and from the cities close by. There were lots of names on that track. Gruber, Tuplow, Cash, Dorothy, Ammes, unknown, etc. On his way home from town one evening, walking from the railroad track toward home, Alfred died, of an apparent heart attack, on Janurary 24, 1900. He is buried in the family plot in the Trinity Cemetery in Bono, Arkansas. (Old Blaze was retired in the mid 1930’s.)
