Cox Genealogy - Western North Carolina

Welcome to my Cox web pages.

My most recent Cox ancestor is Sarah Cox (c1794-c1835) who married Joseph Miller ca 1811 in Buncombe Co., NC. She is a daughter of Aaron Cox (1757-1840s) and Olly Baker. Aaron Cox is a child of John Cox (1727-c1805) and Margaret Morris.

John Cox was born in New Jersey and his ancestry is in Monmouth County for several generations. I have not worked on them there yet, though others have.


Cox DNA Project - Use DNA testing to break down your genealogical brick walls and find out which genetic branch of the family you are part of. Click link for details. I'm not involved in the Cox project, but I highly recommend it.  So far no one from my line has tested.

Cox is the 64th most common surname in America. (Source: Name Statistics)
