I've traced my Cox family back to Cloonkerin, Roscommon. Earliest ancestor found is Patrick Cox (b. 1800 abt)father of Thomas Cox who married Anne Carney and they had children Thomas (b.1863), Patrick, James, Michael and Rosemary. Thomas went to NJ in USA (he's my gr. grandfather). James stayed in Cloonkerin (my aunt visited his descendants in the 1980s) Patrick & Michael went to England. Just looking to see if anyone else would be a descendant of this Cox line...would love to compare notes.
