Looking through the will of Charles Cox of Onslow County(1771), it was mentioned that John Boston, a son-in-law was given the unborn child of the female slave, Peg. Further info leads us to believe that the Cox daughter was already deceased at the time of the will. We are looking for the name of that daughter and wonder if it could be Rebecca, named after her mother, Charles Cox's wife. We have info that says John Boston married a Rebecca Randal about 1760.
Could Randal be a middle name, not last? Anyone who may be able to help, please contact us.
