Just updating information on Sarah Mahan. Still hoping someone can help me find her parents!
brick walls: Sarah "Sally" MAHAN wife of Jonathon COX
I would like to obtain an obituary, bible record, or death
notice for her date of death.
Sarah "Sally" Mahan was born c1819 in KY (according to later census records)
and married Jonathon COX (son of William COX and Nancy Ann RUDDICK). Several researchers have said that Sarah Mahan's parents were Thomas MAHAN and Anna COX of Knox county KY. I have not been able to verify this information. Information from the Thomas Maan of Knox county KY indicates they did have a daughter named Sally, but she is NOT the one listed below.
Sarah MAHAN married Jonathon COX 28 Jan 1834 in Jackson county, Indiana.
Jonathon COX was born 1 Jan 1810, in Tennessee, and his birth was listed in the minutes of the Lost Creek Quaker Monthly Meeting of eastern Tennessee.
Their children include:
Lorinda COX born 1836
Phillip COX born 1840 married Emma LETT
Martha E COX born c1840
William Franklin COX born 1844 married Mary HARBOLT,Jessie LETT
John COX born 1848
Mary COX born 1850
Moses COX born 1852 married Elizabeth HAWN
Noah COX born 1855 married Angeline ABBOTT, Elizabeth DUNN
Jonathon COX died about 1857 near New Farmington, Indiana. Sallie and the children continue to appear in the census records of Jackson and Washington counties for 1860 and 1870. I am not sure that I have found Sallie in 1880; two of her sons appear in the Washington county Indiana census that year.
