I have been looking for similar names [ Absolem, Ferneyfold,
In Colonial North Carolina: 1607-1789 I found in the Cox-Co-op Library the following:
Absalom Cox Currituck Co. 1775
I have been barking up the wrong Absolom all these years. I have updated the
Cox McRaven family webpages. I did not add pictures this time, but I have
more information on the families. I originally had the first Absolom as
coming from Abbeville SC. I now believe that was wrong. The Absolom that
came from Abbeville, SC went to Illinois and not to Indiana. According to
the Posey Co. census Absolom came from North Carolina. [In Colonial North

From 'The Cox Pioneers of Posey Co., IN' by Rev. John E. Cox
The father of 'General Joe' came with him [he was named John Cox] but none of his children seem to know anything about his death. But in my search for historical facts I visited a little Cox burial lot about half a mile from the Donally farm where my grandfather lived. There is a tombstone showing that 2 sons---Abner and James Perry---- of John L. Cox are buried. Another shows that Sally Price Cox, wife of Thomas G. Cox had died 1845. Thomas G. probably lived where General Joe did. He married again and lived there when I knew him and died there. There is also a grave stone marking the grave of 'John Cox, Sr., died May 26, 1826, age 73 years.'
There is a stone at the grave inscribed, 'Martha, 2nd wife of John Cox,Sr., died 1822.'
I am satisfied that the man was the father of General Joe Cox and 'Martha' was either the mother or step-mother of General Joe.
He was married to Martha. Children were: John [Doublehead] COX , Absolom COX, Furneyford COX, Joseph "General Joe" COX, Jemima COX, Johnathon COX, Elizabeth COX.

Johns second wife was was a mistake, they lived together on and off. She was unfaithful. They never had any children. It was such a worry and embarrassement to have an unfaithful wife that he eventually divorced her. He was depressed over the situation with his wife. One day, he put a gun under his chin to end his life. But as luck would have it, he did not die, but blew off his whole chin and part of his mouth. From that time forward, he could only sip soups and eating was very difficult. Medicine was not into the stage of plastic surgery like today, so he lived that way. He usually wore a hankerchief under his nose (like a bandit) to hide his deformity. He took it off to eat and sleep. He used to visit with BH and family. Their younger son Ralph said he hated it when Uncle John came because he had to sleep with him.

R. Cox Foster
Feb 10, 1909 - Aug. 6, 1995
Lillie met Homer Niles Foster, and after a proper courtship, they married on November 1, 1924 in Pitts, Arkansas. Homer was born on Feb 22, 1898 to Ann Raines and William Clinton Foster (1863-1936), in Murphysboro, Illinois. He was the second of 11 children. His brothers as far as can be remembered were: Harry, Daniel, James, and Johnny. His sisters were: Melody, Rainie, Hazel, Rebecca?(struck by lightening as a child) and Mae who died in childbirth. Ann Raines Foster died in childbirth with the 11 child, that died also. The family came to Arkansas when Homer was 8 years old (1906) by covered wagon .
Lillie and Homer had four children: Emma Belita (July 29, 1926), Clinton Avlon (October 26, 1928), Junior Laverne (Aug 13, 1933) and Maggy Lou (Dec 10, 1940). Homer was a farmer. They lived in Arkansas and rented or sharecropped farms.
When William Clinton Foster died, Uncle Homers father, back then there were no funeral homes so the body was taken care of by the family. The women bathed and clothed the body while the men built the coffin. (pine box) The body was laid out usually in the front room. Some one usually sat up with the body until burial. The grave was hand dug by the family and filled also. Avlon remembers his grandfathers funeral. I remember that my dad rented a rubber tired wagon to take the body to the cemetery. Coming back we got to ride in that wagon, it was like riding in a Caddilac. We were used to riding on those bumpy roads in a wagon with wheels made of wood with steel rims, that was a real rough ride. But we got a kick out of riding in that rubber tired wagon.
One year (1952) they came up to Michigan to pick blue berries, as migrant farm workers. It was very difficult, living conditions were poor and I dont think they did that again.
Homer died on September 20, 1975 and was buried in Holloway Cemetery, Northwest of Weiner, AR. Aunt Lillie lived in Sterling and Rick Falls in 1986, close to her children. She and died on August 10, 1995. She is buried next to Homer.
Emma was born on July 29, 1926. She married Leslie Wade on November 1, 1943. They had no children. Leslie died in June 1960 of a heart attack. On November 3, 1963, Emma married Eugene Jarvis. Eugene died January 26, 1986 at the age of 77.
Avlon was born on October 26, 1928. On November 21, 1949 he married Thelma Peterson. They had three daughters Barbara Catherine (Cathy) on October 4, 1954 and Lilly Janette on December 5, 1959 and Belita Kay on August 10. 1963. They were divorced in the fall of 1982, and neither remarried. Avlon worked as an Inspector and in shipping for Northwest Steel and Wire. He is retired and currently lives in Rockfalls, Ill. He has 4 grandchildren.
Junior Laverne was born on August 13, 1933. He married Unice Deal on May 1, 1953. She is the daughter of Virginia (Jenny) and Jacob Dewey Deal. They had one son Tommy Allen on Oct 15, 1954. Junior worked in machines and shipping in the Northwest Steel and Wire company, in Rock Falls, Illinois. Unice retired from General Electric in Morrison, Illinois in June 1986. Junior is also retired and they currently live in near MountainView, AR. They have two granddaughters.
Maggy Lou was born on December 10, 1942. She married Frank Maurer. They had 3 daughters Emma Jeanette , Judith Ann. and Janice Lynn. She was a _______ . Currently they live in ___Illinois and spend the winter in Texas. (Need Dates.)
Lillie Cox Foster
by Avlon Foster
Now heres some things about mom. Mom was a really, really good mom. She had a really good sense of humor, but I didnt really realize that until I was grown. She came from a family that liked to laugh and joke, and tease each other. When any of them got together, there was always plenty of laughter, to go around. She always had a great big time with any of them that came to visit. Aunt Lucy, Uncle John, Uncle Swad, Uncle Walter or Aunt Pat, they made the best of everything. And Mom was also a great cook. She was known for her cream pies like Coconut cream, Lemon Cream, or just plain cream pie. It just kinda melted in your mouth. I remember when I was a young boy, some times at church, theyd have an outside dinner, called Dinner on the ground. Theyd put down some table cloths (white) on the ground, and theyd spread the food out something like 30 foot long. I can remember when people started getting done with the dinner, and started thinking about dessert, theyd come and ask me Wheres your moms pie? Thats all they wanted. I dont blame them, because they were really, really good.
I remember every now and then maybe on a Sunday, Aunt Lucy and her family would come over. And they would come early on Sunday morning so they could stay for dinner. Back then, when you fixed dinner, you fixed it from scratch. The conveniences we have today, we have it so easy. The first thing, we had a wood cookstove, and they had to start a fire in the stove. We usually had chicken on Sunday, especially if somebody came. That meant we had to go out and catch the chicken, kill him, dress him, and then they are ready to start cooking. If my Dad killed a chicken, he would chop their heads off with an ax, but if Mom did it, man she would grab that chicken by the neck and wring it round and round until that neck twisted off. Boy Ill tell you, I am sure glad I dont have to do that. Then the women would start to cook, and man you would hear them laughing and a talking and having a big time all the time they were cooking. Wed have a great dinner too. Not only Aunt Lucys visits, but my dads family too. Even when we went to other peoples house it was the same thing. The food might be a little different, some might have something else. I remember at Uncle Johns we had steak and gravy. Wed go there sometimes.
Mom was a great one for punishment too. When she thought us kids did something wrong, boy she would get us. But back then I really didnt see anything wrong with swimming naked in the creek. with the snakes and turtles, but she thought it wasnt too good so when I would get home, she would send me out for a peach tree limb, or a branch off a tree, and Id try to fool her. Id try to get on that I thought was about half dead and it wouldnt hurt much, they did sting pretty much. But mom never hurt any of us. But she would always send us back for a better switch. And Id bring it to her. When she would whip us kids, she would grab us by the hand, of course wed run around and around her. Shed hang onto that hand and shed be switching us on the back or the backside there, going round and round, then shed get tickled watching us run trying to get away from that switch, and that would be just about the end of it. She couldnt do much more. And like I said, she never hurt us, but she did keep us in line pretty good.
I remember one time when mom really, really, embarrassed herself though. They had been gone some place, her and Dad, and they came home. Uncle Swad would once in a while come by, just walking, and if nobody was home, he would just go in the house and find something to eat and lay down across the bed until somebody came home. So when Mom and Dad got home that day, she walked into her bedroom and there was a man lying face down on the bed. So, mom went in and got a belt, or a razor strap and she went in there and slapped him on his rump. This man jumped up. It scared him to death. Then it scared Mom to death because it wasnt who she thought it was. It wasnt Uncle Swad, it was a stranger. So she ran out of the room yelling for Dad. So Dad, he went in and got the man out. It was just a man that was traveling and got tired decided to rest a while because he was tired. Back then when most people went away, they didnt think much about locking the doors. Most people didnt have anything anyone would care about stealing anyway. And most people were really trustworthy back then too. Out in the country like that everyone knew everyone, unless they were a stranger like that man was. Just passing through. He didnt bother anything, he just went in there to rest.
It was a good life, a hard life for the folks, but a good life none the less.
Parents: Henry COX and Lue Cindie JOYNER.
She was married to Homer FOSTER on 1 Nov 1924 in Pitts, AR.(26) Children were: Emma FOSTER, Avalon FOSTER, Junior Laverne FOSTER, Maggy Lou FOSTER.
