Marriage Records

Let us start with the 1875 marriage license for the ill-fated couple, William and Ellen. Notice the error in the far right column. It was not Jacob who was joined to Ellen in holy matrimony, but his son William. Other Wayne County marriages for Cox folk figure below. Birth and death records for the Coxes appear in the next chapter of this website.
