Warren Packer Line of Descent
from Michael Cox, Sr.

next chapter

Warren Packer did genealogical research by visiting local court houses, records centers, and descendants beginning in the 1950s. He generously shared his only copy of his nearly finished COX Family manuscript with a new found cousin, Susan Meier, for photocopying on a visit to San Francisco. He allowed her to take it home, 100 miles away, and return it to him the next day.

Warren did not live to publish his history. However, Susan Meier has shared his COX manuscript with several libraries and individual researchers, as she knew Warren would want her to do. All of Warren’s approximately 30 boxes of genealogical research materials are available on microfilm at the Family History Center, LDS Library, Salt Lake City, Utah, or by loan to local FHC libraries.
