The James L. Cox Family of Paris, TN Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
I am just beginning to work in genealogy. My family has been in Henry County, TN since sometime in the 1830s. A Phebe Cox (b. abt. 1787 in South Carolina)came to this part of West Tennessee from Hall County, GA with a family including sons Simpson b. abt. 1820) and Willis (b. abt. 1823) and daughters Cassy (b. abt. 1819), Mary (b. abt. 1826) and Sophia (b. abt. 1830). I have a pretty good record of the family since 1840 but I would dearly love to find out some information about the family between 1787 and 1840, specifically the maiden name of my great, great grandmother Phebe and her husband. I suppose everyone needs help with family research, but I really do.
