David Clinton Cox
It has been stated elsewhere in this book
that tradition represented David Cox as being one of the very early
settlers at Fort Blackmore. Thomas W. Carter, in a letter to
Dr. Lyman C. Draper, states that "David Cox died at his home on Stony
Creek, one half mile north of Fort Blackmore, about 80 years of age.
He came from North Carolina. He came to this county about 1791 and
died about the year 1820." W. S. Cox, in a statement dictated a
few hours before he died, says that the old Cox family bible failed to
give the date of his birth, but gave his death as being February 28, 1820.
If Carter was correct in giving his age as being about 80 years, then he
must have been born about 1748.
