I am attempting to determine the parentage of Levi L. Cox who was born 9Jun1823 in Indiana, county unknown. He married Margaret Moore 7 Sep1844 in Wabash Co., IN and had 11 children. They lived in Wabash Co. until ca.1864-1867, whereupon they moved to Fulton Co., IN where Levi died ca.1Mar1869. Children: daughter Cox (1846-1846) Fernando G. Cox (1848-1852) Arthur Miller Cox (1850/1-1869) Mary Ann Cox (1853-1892) m. Wm Phillebaum Melvina Cox (1854/5-1912) m.George W. Jones Russell Cox (1857-1946) m. Sara L. Miller Eli Carver Cox (1859-1935) m(1). Catherine Hoff m(2). Sarah Jane Johnson John W. Cox (1861-1928) m. Abigail "Abby" Null Martha Jane "Mattie" Cox (1864-1948) m. Alvah Stoops Lucy Ella "Ella" Cox (1867-1953) m. Jacob "Jake" C. Shoemaker [unknown female] Cox (died in infancy) Possible siblings to Levi: Aaron Y. Cox (b.ca.1835/6, IN - county unknown)
(b.ca.1840/1, IN - county unknown) married Jefferson Ray 7Jul1856, Wabash Co.IN. Peraba's name may actually be ";Feraba" or "Theaba". Aaron and Peraba were residing with Levi Cox in the 1850 Census of Wabash Co., but they are too old to be children of Levi and Margeret, so I presume they are either siblings or other close relatives. Other possible siblings to Levi (based on circumstantial evidence) John V. Cox (b.1828, IN - county unknown; d.28Feb1892, Wabash Co., IN) Samuel T. Cox (b.9Sep1832, IN - county unknown; d.29May1909, Wabash Co.,IN)
