Shared note

In the 1860 US Federal Census for Montgomery, Jennings, Indiana, 37-year-old Kentucky-born famer James H Cox owns $1,000-worth of land and $500-worth of personal property. He and his 36-year-old Indiana-born wife Minerva [Hall] Cox have in their household their Indiana-born children, 15-year-old Thomas, 12-year-old John M, 7-year-old William and 4-year-old Judson. Thomas, John and William have attended school in the past year.

In the 1870 US Federal Census for Montgomery, Jennings, Indiana, 25-year-old farmer Thomas Cox has no real estate, but $200 worth of personal property. He and his 23-year-old wife Vestina [Nancy Vestina McCaslin] Cox were married in February 1870. Thomas is living next to his parents, 46-year-old James and 45-year-old Minerva [Hall] Cox and his siblings, 23-year-old John, 20-year-old William, 14-year-old Judson, and 9-year-old Susan.

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Huggins, Gentry, Missouri, 35-year-old farmer Thomas M Cox and his 33-year-old wife Vestina [Nancy Vestina McCaslin] Cox have in their household their adopted son, 8-year-old Wm [William] Chambers, and Thomas 25-year-old unmarried carpenter brother, Milroy J. Cox. Williams mother Fannie McCaslin Chambers, who died in 1875, was Nancy Vestinas sister. Presumably Williams father John Chambers has also died, since he cant be found on the 1880 census.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Cooper, Gentry, Missouri, 55-year-old Tomas [Thomas] Cox and his 54-year-old wife Ves [Nancy Vestina McCaslin] have been married 30-years and have no children. This does not agree with the 1880 census which records that they adopted William Chambers. They have in their household a farm hand, 13 year old New York-born Christopher Kulty who has attended school eight months of the past year.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Cooper, Gentry, Missouri, 65-year-old farmer Thomas M Cox and his 63-year-old wife Bestina M [Nancy Vestina McCaslin] are living on Mt Pleasant-Alanthus Road. They are listed as having no children even though the 1880 census says they adopted William Chambers.

Thomas M Cox died in Stanberry, Gentry, Missouri on 24 Feb 1916, aged 71 years, 3 month,27 days. He was male, white, a widower and a farmer. He was born 27 Oct 1844 Indiana. His parents were James Cox (born in Kentucky) and Minerva Hill (born in Indiana). The informant was Fred Cox of Stanbury, Missouri.Thomas' doctor was R E Chaffin. He certified that he had attended Thomas from 3 Mar 1915 to 24 Feb 1916, last saw him alive on the 24th and that he died at 8 p.m. that day of apoplexy (cerebral haemorrhage) of one year's duration. Thomas was buried 27 Feb in Highridge Cemetery, Stanbury, Missouri, undertaker John Pennington, of Stanbury. Nancy's death was recorded on 21 Apr 1914 by C H McCaslin, registrar and Thomas Cox's brother-in-law.
