I'm looking for any information about the parents Ulysses S. Cox, who is my great grandfather. He was born about 1831 in Indiana. The census records indicate his father was born in Kentucky and his mother has been shown as born in either Kentucky or Indiana. His Land Grant is dated 1859 in DeKalb County, Missouri, where he was a farmer. There was concurrently a James C. Cox living in DeKalb County, who married Nancy Ann Davis in Boone County, Indiana in 1845. I believe they may have been related.
Ulysses Cox was married three times:
1. Elviry Taylor on Feb. 27, 1861 in DeKalb County, Missouri
2. Mary Jane Short (my great grandmother), March 15, 1870, in Andrew County, Missouri.
3. Mary Casto, April 20, 1884 in DeKalb County, Missouri. (know in my family as "Aunt Polly."
My tree is Public, so all documents, sources, and photos are or will be available to you.
Thank you for any information you can share!
