From the "Gate City Herald" undated and no authors name:

Cox is the man who stood guard at Ransome Mills during the terrible winter of 1779---known to this day as the coldest and rainiest winter in the annals of this territory. While here many of his comrades deserted, others died and at one time he was left almost alone. The legendary story goes that many men in full vigor one morning would be dead by the next, such was the smallpox ravage which extended from the Mason Dixon Line to Charleston. He lived in spite of the treachery of the Tories and Indians, the poor clothing of the Continentals, and the great smallpox epidemic which almost completely depleted the Continental Army in the south.

John Cox did possibly as valiant a service for Scott County in the Revolutionary Days as any man in the whole Southwest. John seemed to have somewhat distinguished himself in his unerring method of bumping off Indians and getting rid of redcoats. In his Revolutionary record at Washington it is stated that on the Guyandott River he saved his Captain's life and in the hand to hand encounter with the big Indian chief, who killed Major Moore, which lasted for some time---sometimes the Indian had the best of it and then sometimes John was winning until finally John gave the Indian the death blow with his hunting knife. Here, he states he killed three other Indians outright and recaptured a white prisoner.

The following is extracted from a story in the "Gate City Herald," dated 23 September 1937 and written by C.V. Compton:

No man in the whole region of the Clinch had wider range of knowledge than John Cox as to the intent of the Tories and Indians. He had volunteered long before the Revolutionary War to fight against the Shawnees in Northwest Virginia and then he saw service at the Battle of Point Pleasant under Captain Lewis. His father had a large family and was drafted to do military duty against the Indians but his stalwart son John dutifully took his father's place and became an outstanding Indian fighter. John Cox, though a taciturn man made strong friendships and maintained the warmest affection for men with whom he associated. He was a typical frontiersman of the highest order. The perils of Indian wars were exactly suited to his ….tal and imperturbable nature. Cox enlisted and served his enlistments out more often than any other man in the whole Clinch region. If the records are to be relied upon, he enlisted five times and each time received an honorable discharge during these Revolutionary Days. He was the man who volunteered to relieve Samuel Stallard of Revolutionary duties when he became ill on the march to Ransome Mills at Point Saplings (Bristol). ……………. that he took Raliegh Stallard's place but due to the statement being made in 1832, it is the writer's opinion that Samuel Stallard's name should have been given instead of Raliegh Stallard. The only Raliegh we have been able to find any record of was only seven years of age at this time and the son of Samuel. This John Cox saw service at Ransome Mills, guarding this port of entry to the Lead Mines from the Tories and the Cherokees of East Tennessee and North Carolina. Later he chased the Redcoats down thru the Carolinas even to the swamps of the Charleston region and in turn he was chased by them. He never overlooked an opportunity to demonstrate his unerring ability wherever and whenever an Indian or a Tory appeared.

This man Cox claimed the hills of Scott County as his homeland. He died in Scott County and left many descendants, who still live in that region.5 He married Rebecca Dunn on Jul 28, 1780 at Tinker Creek / Glade Creek / Great Lick, Botetourt, Virginia, US, Surety William Cox. (See Kegley's Virginia Frontier by Fredrick Bittle Kegley 1938 p 539.)1,6,7,8,9,2 The first record of land owned by Francis STURGILL is a grant for 500 acres on New River, dated 1797. From 1782 through 1789, he paid taxes on 100 acres in Montgomery Co., Va., but no deed for that land has been located. His grant of 500 acres was made on two Treasury Warrents, which were given for military service, but such warrents were negotiable and could be bought and sold on the open market. Francis sold this land to John Cox in 1802 for $1,000, a very large sum for that time, when land still sold for a few cents per acre, which indicates that this was a well developed farm in 1802.5 John Cox died in 1840 at Virginia, US.1,4 He died in 1851 at Alleghany, Virginia, US.2

     To truly understand the American republic, you have to spend some time learning about America before it was a republic – that is, when it consisted of a few fledgling British colonies along the eastern seaboard of North America.

The 168 years of colonial history between the first settlement at Jamestown and the outbreak of the American Revolution offer a vast array of compelling stories, momentous trends, and cultural insights. For anyone interested in studying the period – and looking for connections between the colonial past and America’s present and future – there’s no better place to start than by reading David Hackett Fisher’s seminal work, Albion’s Seed: Four British Folkways in America.

Fisher describes four major waves of immigration to America, and how their origins, beliefs, and practices helped to create distinct regional cultures as well as conflicting definitions of human freedom and social order.

The first one was the Great Migration of Puritans, which brought some 21,000 immigrants from the east of Old England to the shores of New England during the 1630s. Next was a 1642-1675 wave of about 45,000 English Cavaliers and their servants from the south and west of England to tidewater Virginia. The third wave, from about 1675 to 1715, involved some 23,000 Quakers and related settlers who immigrated to Pennsylvania and its neighboring colonies, mostly from the English Midlands as well as parts of Germany and the Low Countries.

The final big wave of British immigration to America, and by far the largest, brought some 250,000 people from Scotland, Northern England, and Northern Ireland to America, usually through the port of Philadelphia. These folks – who have been variously called Scotch-Irish, Scots-Irish, Anglo-Irish, or Ulster Scots – quickly moved from the coast into the backcountry of Pennsylvania, and then on to parts of New England, Virginia, the Carolinas, and North Georgia.

Many are used to thinking about the Scotch-Irish as consisting of hardscrabble farmers, Presbyterian dissenters, and, well, basically a bunch of hard-drinking, hard-fighting border folk. Such groups were certainly well represented among the immigrants. But also in this amalgam of what would become a large chunk of the American population were representatives of the nobility and gentry of Scotland, Ireland, and parts of England.

What’s remarkable is how all these folks mixed and mingled once they arrived in America. Consider the very different stories of two Scotch-Irish families: the Rankins and the Coxes.

Alexander Rankin was born in 1635 in Ayrshire, Scotland, a county near the border with England. His family was poor. He and his wife Maria lived in Ayrshire until around 1665, when their son William Rankin was born. The family then moved to Ulster in the north of Ireland. They were among the many Scots of modest means who were relocated to Ulster during the 1600s to strengthen Protestant rule and work the land. In 1687 William Rankin married an Ulster Protestant named Dorothy Black. They had a son, John Rankin, in 1690.

In the early 1700s, the Rankins decided to abandon Ulster for a more inviting locale. They sailed to Philadelphia and made their way into central Pennsylvania. The patriarch, Alexander Rankin, died soon afterward. In 1705, his grandson John Rankin married another young immigrant from Northern Ireland, Margaret Jane McElwee, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They soon produced a daughter, Mary Catherine Rankin.

The Rankins offer the stereotypical Scotch-Irish story of 1) humble origins in the Scottish lowlands, 2) relocation to Northern Ireland in the 1600s, and 3) subsequent immigration to Pennsylvania in the 1700s.

The Cox family followed a very different path to America. The original Richard Cox lived from 1500 to 1581. He was a famous English clergyman and chaplain to King Henry VIII who was imprisoned twice in his life for heresy. He later served as Dean of Westminster, Bishop of Ely, and Chancellor of Oxford University.

His grandson, Michael Cox, came to Northern Ireland around 1600 as an “adventurer,” according to one source. That means he might well have been among the earliest English founders of the Ulster plantation. One of his sons, Captain Richard Cox, fought for King Charles during the early stages of the English Civil War but later joined the army of Oliver Cromwell to subdue Ireland in 1649.

Two years later, Captain Cox was walking near the Irish town of Bandon with a fellow officer, a Captain Norton, who apparently had some kind of grudge against him. Norton suddenly turned on Captain Cox and stabbed him to death. The unfortunate Cox left behind a pregnant wife, Katherine, who soon gave birth to Richard Cox Jr. and then died herself.

The orphaned Richard grew up with his mother’s family in County Cork, Ireland. After obtaining a legal education in London, he held several offices in Ireland as part of the Protestant ruling class. Richard and his wife Mary had several children, including a son, Joshua Cox, who would later immigrate to Pennsylvania.

When the Catholic James II became king in 1785, Richard Cox Jr. lost his position in Ireland. He briefly left public service to practice law in Bristol, England and write a noted history of Ireland from an English standpoint, entitled Hibernia Anglicana.

In 1688, William of Orange deposed James II in the Glorious Revolution. The deposed king fled to Ireland and organized Irish Catholics in an attempt to reclaim his throne. The new king William followed, and defeated the army of James II in 1690 at the Battle of the Boyne in eastern Ireland.

Richard Cox Jr. was there, fighting for William. In return for his service, the new king knighted Richard. A few years later, in 1703, William named Sir Richard Cox as Lord Chancellor of Ireland. Richard headed the government of the island for four years, during which he was also made a baronet. Later, he served as the chief justice of Ireland’s high court.

Could there be a greater contrast between the lives of Alexander Rankin, a poor Scottish farmer who became an Ulster settler, and Sir Richard Cox, a lawyer who become Lord Chancellor and chief justice of Ireland? Yet both fathered children who joined the Scotch-Irish immigration to America. In 1724, Alexander Rankin’s great-granddaughter, Mary Catherine Rankin, married Joshua Cox, the son of Sir Richard Cox.

Only in America.

Joshua and Mary Cox made their home in the Pennsylvania backcountry. Their children included a son, John Cox. During the French and Indian War, an Indian raiding party attacked the Cox home and burned to the ground. They held young John Cox in captivity for six months. He escaped the Indian camp, moved to northwestern North Carolina, commanded militia during the Revolutionary War, and in the 1790s became one of the first three commissioners of Ashe County, N.C.

He was my 5th great-grandfather – and his family story is a telling reminder that America has always been a land of reinvention, recombination, and rejuvenation.

John Hood http://www.carolinajournal.com/articles/display_story.html?id=8075. John Joshua Cox was; Children:
Samuel Cox b. About 1724 in McDowell's Mill, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
Richard Cox b. 1725 in McDowell's Mill, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
Mary Cox b. 1728 in McDowell's Mill, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

Captain John Cox b. 25 Jun 1739 in McDowell's Mill, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
William Cox b. About 1732 in Greencastle, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.1 He emigrated to the Greencastle area of Pennsylvania.
Joshua Cox and his wife were among the thousands of poor Scotch-Irish immigrants who came to Pennsylvania in the early 1700's. The Scotch-Irish (called "Ulster Scots" in the U.K.) are the descendants of Scottish Protestants, mostly Presbyterians, who settled in Northern Ireland beginning around 1605. This was part of a plan begun by King James I to subdue Ireland and, at the same time, remove the troublesome Presbyterians from Scotland. Presbyterianism was firey religious movement that got tangled up with Scottish nationalism and became a constant thorn in the side of England. The Scots hoped to find religious freedom in Ireland, but instead their lives were plagued by grinding poverty and endless conflict. They were squeezed by absentee landlords, constantly threatened by the native Irish, and at the mercy of the ever-changing political winds blowing from England. By 1776, an estimated quarter-million Scotch-Irish had abandoned Ireland to seek greener pastures in America.1,3 He was born on Apr 22, 1694 at Dunmanway, Ireland.1,4 He married Mary Catherine Rankin, daughter of John Rankin and Mary Craig, circa 1724 at Ireland.1,5,4 John Joshua Cox died in Jun, 1747 Jun 1747 in McDowell's Mill, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania at Lanchaster, Pennsylvania, US, at age 53.1 His estate was probated on Aug 6, 1747 at Lanchaster, Pennsylvania, US; His will was probated in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania on 8 June 1747.
