Notes for John Cox:
He moved from Monmouth County, New Jersey, with wife, Margaret, to North Carolina. Family history says that "John Cox and his whole family were patriotic Whigs and that the women of the family prepared food and baked bread for the soldiers. Another family anecdote has it that when General Greene was passing through North Carolina from the battle at Cowpens, South Carolina on his way to Virginia, he and his army passed by the Sullivan/Cox land where the family women baked bread for his soldiers.".
John and his wife, Margaret, were both buried in the Cox/Sullivan Cemetary, located on the Craig & Dolores Wood estate, 464 Burton Wood Lane, Lincolnton, N.C. (Their original tombstones were still legible when viewed by descendant James B. Wood on May 1, 1992). It is located on a wooded hill in an isolated area on the west bank of Rock Dam Creek, about 200 yards west of NC Hwy 27, and about 400 yards northwest of St Dorothy's Catholic Church. "There are many graves in this cemetary which are simply marked by a rough fieldstone. The graveyard is on a small rising on the side of the main hill. The whole hill is covered with an adult forest in which the trees tower into the sky, providing a cool, peaceful, and melancholy setting in which the grays and blacks of the tombstone stand majestic."
He was granted land in North Carolina in August, 1782 for patriotic service during the Revolutionary War. (North Carolina Revolutionary War Acconts, Vol. XII, p.50, folio 2).
