You seem correct (there is a slim chance this one died and was replaced by a brother with exactly the same initials exactly one year later but not likely).  Here's the 1870 census:

"United States Census, 1870," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MX72-5WT : 12 April 2016), H T Cox in household of C E Cox, Kentucky, United States; citing p. 59, family 40, NARA microfilm publication M593 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 545,949.

Vincent has your answer. Looking at the census image, he was 8 months old when the census was enumerated 9 June 1870. That is closer to his birth than what his descendants remembered for his death information.
