My grandfather was called "Sam" Cox but his full name (according to him) was William Edward Cox.He was born sometime along 1876 to,maybe,1880.He married my grandmother in 1910 in Tuscaloosa,Ala (Coker,Ala?)He died in the 1950s,maybe 1956 or 1957 in Mobile,Ala.He worked the coal mines of North Alabama.He probably did some carpendry work and farming,too.He spent some time in prison,he said.He acted as though he left his home in a hurry as a young man,maybe in trouble or just taking off.
He married my grandmother : Margaret Kyzer Lindsey He probably was married before,maybe had kids He had three sons with my grandmother: Glenard,Lennard (aka Allen) and Tillman who died as a child He was average in statue,blue eyes and brown hair-facial hair,big nose
I have heard that he may POSSIBLY be the son of "Edward Alston Cox and Cornelia Allen Cox" who left in his teens and was never seen again.They were reportedly from Clark Count (West Bend?),Ala.
Any info appreciated.....Please help me,I have been at a dead end for YEARS with him!
