I am working on the BOX line that was in Hardeman Co., TN from at least 1830 to 1880.
I know who some of the children of Robert Box Jr, (May 13, 1789) and his first wife (unknown to me).The unknown wife died before July 31, 1830 when he married Edna Caroline Rose.
Robert BOX, Jr. was the son of Robert BOX, Sr., who was born 1761/1770 time period.This comes from the information in the 1840 Hardeman Co., TN census.
On the 1830 census, he is listed with nine (9) children, under the age of 20.I know that two of them were, James M. (about 1823) and Tamar J. (about 1828).Does anyone know who the other seven (7) were?
When he married Edna, she was only 26, and she took on a family of nine children.Brave woman.
I am listing the BOX marriages in Hardeman Co., from the earlies they have listed to 1860.I will mark with an * the ones I KNOW are the children of Robert and either the first unknown wife or Edna.
If you know who the other ones listed are the children of, PLEASE tell me.I know that there was other BOX men of the age to have children get married during this time period, but I do not know who they were.
