The name Cox is of English or Irish origin. However, the earliest information I have on this Cox family starts in the mid-18th century in Lower Alloway, Salem, New Jersey.
William Henry Cox and
Elma Anne Deenis
Etta Teresa Cox, with her parents, William Henry Cox and Elma Anne Deenis. Although the fifth child in the family,
Etta was the first to survive beyond infancy. At right is Etta with her brother, Roy.
