I could not find a marriage between William Cox and a Mary Stone.  I did find the record of the marriage between Mary Neal on 5 August 1795.  I found a marriage between Reed Cox and Mary Carper, 25 April 1805 in Jefferson County, Tennessee.  I also found a record of his death on the Find a Grave website: Reed Cox, Born 1785, Death 8 September 1844 at age 59, in Butler County, Missouri.  His spouse listed as Mary Carper Cox (1787-1857).  There are two photo's on the website, one of the Shiloh Cemetery entrance, and another of a handwritten document/letter.  I think this could be the proof that Mary neal was not his biological mother as she did not marry William until Reed was ten years old.  The Memorial number is 80324081, hopefully this link will get you in.  Link to Find a Grave website:  http;//www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSin=COX&GSpartial=1&GSbyrel=all&GSst=26&GSentry=4&GSsr=5521&GRid=80324081&
