C. R. Cox was on census in Bibb Co. in 1840 as single man. His brother who was Henry Cox, unmarried attorney and local politician, has C. R.'s son William Emmett Cox (born 11 Nov 1844)living in his household on 1850 census for Coosa Co.Family gossip/fable/story says C. R. Cox was called to the door in the middle of the night and shot. I went to the Coosa Co. Courthouse but found the people there very unfriendly and unwilling to help me look up records.Went across the street to the back of the city offices and looked at what old newspapers they had but found nothing. I would entertain any suggestions on this puzzle.
