Charles does not have a computer. On ancestry.com I saw where they had Martha Tibbits as her name. Charles has always said Cox was Martha's maiden name. Family lore has it that Marha was of Native American heritage and after William had children with her it is said he sold all livestock and farm. He left Martha and her children setting in the wagon waiting for him to move them to Texas.Came by with his new woman and told them this was now his wife and he was going back to Tenn or where ever.
