I am researching my father's side of the family. His mother, my grandmother was named Mary Anna Cox. She lived in Cairo, Grady Co., GA b. 5 Sep 1891 d. 4 Jul 1970 in Cairo, Grady, Georgia Her father was William Franklin Cox b. 15 Aug 1856, Georgia d. 28 Jul 1934, Cairo, Grady, Georgia His father was named Levi C. Cox or Levy Cox and he was born 9 Feb 1805 in Wayne County NC Here lies the rub...I don't know who his father and mother are. I have spent many weeks trying to find out this information and have not turned over any info until I looked at your site. I did see that Wayne County had a lot of Coxes but I can't match mine with any of yours. Could you help me with this. Levi C.
