Looking for info on Benjamin "Oscar" Cox b. March 25, 1879

+5 votes
Info I have is that B.O. Cox was born in South Carolina. Could be incorrect.

No parents, sibs, or other info except his wife and children.

Died Aug 13, 1948.

Might you have Spousal, Children Names to go along with the above Information ?
Wife Edith "Edie" Oxley

b. Nov 5, 1875, d. May 27, 1950

They had 6 or 7 children, one of which was J. E. Cox, my grandfather.  He was born in Canton, GA so the family moved there at some point.

Nobody seems to have any record of where B. O. came from.  :(
