I am looking for descendants of Tilman/Tilmon Cox, son of John Cox and Sarah Smith. I was hoping that someone could tell me whether any descendants of this Tilman/Tilmon has taken a Y-DNA test. Also, has any descendants of John Cox and Sarah Smith taken a Y-DNA test.
I have found a completely different Tilmon Cox than the one traditional research has attached to John and Sarah Smith Cox. It appears likely that he was born in Pendleton Dist SC 1800-1805, lived in Lumpkin Co GA in the mid-1830s, lived near Israel Cox in Jackson Co, AL in 1840, and may have died in Crittenden Co AR around 1850. It may be his fatherless family that appears on the 1850 Census there with children named John, Mary, Riley, Sarah, and Hiram.
