According to the Clark County, Ohio, Marriage Records, Mary "Polly" LAFFERTY married John COX there on 07 Feb 1822.
John COX was born (abt. 1801) in Ohio and died (abt. 1869) in Ohio. I have yet to find his parents, but it is likely that his mother's name was Nancy.
I have located the family in the 1850 Mad River, Clark, Ohio Census; Roll: M432_666; Page: 84; Image: 171.
I have documentation on the following children of Mary "Polly" LAFFERTY and John COX:
i. Fidelia A. COX, b. 25 Mar 1829 in Ohio; d. 12 May 1914 in Miami, Logan, Ohio. Married Newman S. BENSON.
ii. William COX (my 3rd great-grandfather), b. 22 Sep 1830; d. 16 Sep 1912 in Bloomfield, Logan, Ohio. Married Lucinda TAYLOR.
iii. Minerva Lucinda COX, b. 15 Sep 1835 in Ohio; d. 14 Dec 1911 in Fostoria, Seneca, Ohio. Married John LUDY.
iv. Nancy Ellen COX, b. 10 Mar 1840 in Ohio; d. 12 Sep 1910 in Phillipsburg, Montgomery, Ohio. Married Jacob E. BECKER.
v. Andrew COX, b. abt 1842 in Ohio.
iv. Mary Jane COX, b. abt 1846 in Ohio.
I have seen others list David, Elizabeth and John as additional children but have yet to see any sources cited nor have I come across them myself anywhere.
Any information on the family of Mary "Polly" (LAFFERTY) COX would be so very much appreciated. She is my 4th great-grandmother.
