Celestial’s age of four months is indicated by the fraction of four over twelve. Jacob’s father, Peter, is listed here as a native of Germany. This may or may not be correct, however it would account for our not being able to find any US records on him. Nevertheless, I believe he was probably born in Pennsylvania.

 

CEMETERY RECORDS – SUGAR CREEK TOWNSHIP

Dalton Cemetery, Ohio, page 600

The spring of 1874 was devasting for Wm. Newton Cox. His mother, Jane, died on 18 April 1874. His young wife, Caroline, died six weeks later on 30 May 1874, at about age 24. We know the two women died of tuberculosis. Then his daughter Miranda (or Amada as listed elsewhere) died nearly one year later in March 1875.

The three individuals who died in 1851 and. 1852 were: Samuel Denman, Jane’s father, thus Wm. Newton Cox’s maternal grandfather. His baby sister Mary Ann, may have died at 18 months on January 21, 1852. Sarah Ann Cox was the first wife of Eli, Wm. Newton’s eldest brother. Her maiden name was Tanner. She died at the age of 27.

While these headstones are hard to read, the abbreviations are not so difficult:
"d/o W. N. & C. B." = daughter of William Newton Cox & Caroline Broadback
"O.V.I." = Ohio Volunteer Infantry "w/o" = wife of "mo." = months
