      John Cox

      John Cox was born in Clinton county, Ohio, Feb. 13, 1849 and departed this life March 30, 1924 at his home in Winterset, at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 11 days. He was the oldest son of Eli and Mary Cox, one of a family of twelve children. He accompanied his parents to this county when but a child and attended the Guiberson district school in Union township and also pursued his studies for a time in a log school house in Jefferson township. Upon starting out for himself, he operated a part of his father's farm in Union township, but in 1872, purchased land and concentrated his energies upon its cultivation. In 1900 he sold his holdings and removed to Winterset, where he followed the carpenter trade to some extent until of late years.

      On Nov. 11, 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Nancy McDonald, and to this union were born five children, two girls and three boys: Mrs. Harriet Addy of Earlham; Charles A., LeRoy and Mrs. Beulah E. Cox, all of Winterset; and William R. of Estelline, S.D., all of whom are left to mourn the loss of this kind and loving father. The mother departed this life Nov. 31, 1901. He also leaves four sisters and three brothers: Mrs. A. R. Duff, Mrs. Ira Greenwood and Mrs. Martha Criss, all of Winterset; Mrs. Ray Guiberson of Terry, Mont.; Amos Cox of Lamberton, Minn.; Milton Cox of Chehalls, Wash.

      He was again united in marriage to Miss Barbara Mills on Jan. 16, 1904, who also survives him. He united with the North Branch U.B. church in the year 1895 and has been a faithful servant of his Master to the end. To know him was to love him., It can truly be said that he hadn't an enemy. Besides these sorrowing relatives, he leaves also a host of friends to mourn his loss in the vacant place in the earthly home which he has left. But heaven will be a brighter place by his being there.

      Funeral services were held at the United Presbyterian church in Winterset, Tuesday afternoon, April 1, conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. Z. Allen. Interment was made in the North Branch United Brethren cemetery.
