Peter and Magdalin Cox

by Kenny Ray Cox

next chapter

Peter Cox (Cocks) was probably born around. 1765 rather than 1775 as his son Jacob said in his "reminiscences." The census records all indicate this and if Peter rode on a horse with his sister across the mountains to their new home on the first day of March 1769 as his dad’s deed indicates, then 1765 seems to fit much better than 1775.

The only marriage record for a Peter Cox that seems to fit is a record at the old Swedes Church in Philadelphia on Christmas Day 1796 to a Jane Roberts. Roberts is a name found very close to Fruit Hill but a check of wills of the Roberts people included neither the name Jane nor Magdalin.

Peter and Magdalin owned several pieces of land when they decided to move to Ohio in 1814. Some land was sold "on credit." This mortgage was later sold. It appears that several trips were made between the new Ohio home and the old place.

Peter probably served in the War of 1812 but the record of it is so bad that we can not be sure of its contents.

The land he acquired in Ohio was very different than the land his father and brothers had chosen in that it was almost perfectly flat. But there was one similarity, a natural spring that produces a run of water to fill the needs of the homestead and livestock, just as Michael Senior and Michael Junior had.

Peter Cox’s farm and brick home
in Dalton, Wayne County, Ohio

Built circa 1820

When I first found this farm, it was a crisp, cool August Sunday morning—so cool that I had my heavy J.B. Hunt Transport Company jacket on. I had a section map of Sugar Creek Township of Wayne County, Ohio and had determined that the North East quarter of Section 14, Township 16 and Range 11 must be about one and a half miles east and one and a half miles south of the town of Dalton. But I knew that Dalton had had a very bad fire a long time ago and so I was not certain that the center of town today is the same as the center of the town in the past. So after parking my rig behind Hardee’s, I walked north to the town’s center and in so doing, satisfied myself that it was the same today as it had been back then.

As I walked east, I passed by the place where the inn had been. I continued on in the same direction to the place where the tavern portion of the old inn had been moved and transformed into the town’s museum and library. This library is closed except for every once in a while when someone will open it up for a day or two.

Continuing east, I came upon a father and son working on an antique car. Old vehicles are always of interest to me, and I really appreciate folks who restore them. I lingered and visited and asked if they knew their "legal land description." They laughed and said, "Heavens, no. But it’s time for a break anyway, so let’s go to the house and we’ll find our deed and see what it is."

Together they determined that the place I was looking for was probably Mr. Gerber’s place--and if it wasn’t, then he would know where the Cox farm was as he had lived there all his life. I thanked them, thinking they were fine folks to make me feel so welcome and take the time to understand and help me in my search for the old Cox farm. I wish I could remember their names.

I continued east on the old Lincoln Highway to Lebanon Road where I turned south to the Herman Gerber farm. But wait—across the road I saw a man working in his garden. I went to him and asked what he knew of the past history of these farms. He told me that his wife had been a Goudy and that her family was one of the first to come to Wayne County, Ohio when it was first opened up for settlement in 1814. He assured me that Mr. Gerber would be able to tell me "all about it."

As I turned down the gravel drive to the two-story brick home of Mr. Gerber, a car approached and stopped. There was a man and woman in the car, and the man driving started to ask who I was. I could sense that they thought I was probably a process server or a UPS driver as I was in my all brown uniform. I explained that I was looking for my ancestor’s home.

The lady said she was Herman Gerber’s sister and that all she knew about the farm was that it had been purchased by their father in 1920 from a Mr. Irwin who had just ruined the land by over fertilizing with chicken manure—which, dear reader—if you are not familiar with the ins and outs of animal fertilizer—is very hot stuff and burns the land. It took several years to get the land balanced and the farm back to good productivity.

I followed them to the house. There we met Mr. Herman Gerber.

Outside the house, Mr. Gerber listened to my whole story attentively and said, "How do you spell your last name?" I told him "C- O- X."

"Hmmm..." he replied, "hang on a minute, I’ll be right back." He went upstairs and returned with a large envelope that he proceeded to dump on the car trunk. Enclosed were all the original deeds of that farm.

Now, I had copies of these deeds, but these were the originals—not copies—and they should have been at the Court House, not his house. And when I saw the grant to Peter Cocks, it was like "Wow" I did not want to touch it without white gloves on. Oh, how I wanted to trade with him. Unfortunately, he wouldn’t trade.

The deeds showed that the land had passed from Peter to Jacob to Mr. Irwin to Herman’s dad in 1920, and now to Derry Neuenschwander, whose son Craig and wife Rachel live on this farm.

Herman told me that his dad had bought the place just after Herman’s birth. So even though he was not born there, he had lived there all his life.

When I expressed my desire to take pictures of the place, Herman’s brother-in-law agreed to help. He explained that he had worked on the farm for the elder Mr. Gerber and had helped to build portions of the old barn standing over there and had helped pour the cement for the front porch when the old one finally wore out. He remembered the elder Mr. Gerber saying that this ‘ole house’ was at least a hundred years old when he bought it in 1920 and that the brick was made "on site," at a brick kiln right there on the farm. So there it was, the farm house that Peter Cox built. And it was still being lived in. It was a wonderful moment for me. To think that after all the hours, postage and money I had spent on this search, I finally had something to show for it all.

A couple of years later, my son David came home from Paris and rode with me eleven days. We were able to visit this farm together and it was great to watch him go through what I had experienced emotionally. He must have taken a million pictures. We got to visit with the man who sometimes opens the little museum. This man has an organic garden. He and David talked till after dark.

From the skimpy early day records of Wayne County, Ohio, we believe the family of Peter and Magdalin Cox consisted of six children. Unfortunately, we have no clear information on Magdalin’s maiden name.

Their first child very likely died in infancy. Five others were born after her: Jacob, Catherine, Stewart, William, and Mary Ann. Jacob Cox was born 29 Aug 1801, died. 14 March 1885. He married Rebecca Jane Denman on 4 December 1823. Stewart was born between 1800 and. 1810. He married Ann Garretson on 9 November 1824. Catherine was born in 1803. She married John Stout on 16 January 1823. Mary Ann was born before 1810. She married Thomas Lamb. 10 August 1824, and she died. 27 January 1853. William was born between 1810 and. 1820. He married Margaret Ann Beal on 5 November 1832.

Another William Cox (unrealted?) was born in Wayne County, Ohio on April 19, 1816, and joined the Baptist Church in Wooster in 1832 and married on February 10, 1838 in Stark County, Ohio to Mary Ann Sites. This may be the same William but not enough proof of it has been found to verify his identity. This couple had a daughter they named Jane and lived in Kendallville, Indiana, as other of our Cox folks did.

I haven’t found a will for Peter. On the 1830 Census an older man is listed as living with Jacob. This could be Peter. Jacob had his land, and Peter’s possessions could have already been given to other children. I searched for a grave; I even asked Mr. Gerber if there had been any graves on the farm.

I searched the area thoroughly but found nothing. We’ll just have to assume that Jacob didn’t get his father a headstone. I’ve never found out what happened to his wife Magdalin, either. Though I searched surrounding counties, thinking he may have moved, this search was unproductive.

Our information on Peter’s year of birth comes from several sources and results in several years. He was born in 1775 according to Wayne County History. The 1790 census set his birth before 1774 and indicated that he was the son of Michael Cox Sr. The 1800 census put his birth sometime between 1756 and. 1774. The 1810 census put his birth before 1765, while the 1820 census placed it before 1775. The 1830 census listed him living with Jacob Cox in the years 1761-70. The census of 1840 contained the same information.

As for his wife, Magdalin, the deeds of Fayette County, Pennsylvania and the census of 1800 set her birth between 1756 and. 1774. The census of 1810 set her birth between 1766 and 84. Her date of birth is not shown in the census of 1820. We have no information on her maiden name, marriage date, or place of birth.

Jacob is listed in the Wayne County Ohio History. The 1810 census Fayette County Pennsylvania and the 1820 census Wayne County, Ohio also provide information on the household.
