EP Cox worked at the Belle-Vue Mill in Hillsborough, North Carolina. In ~1918, he built his house, which would later have the address of 122 S. Bellvue Ave.

On 15 Nov 1917, James M. Spoon and wife Martha Spoon sold lots 249 and 250 of the West Hill subdivision to Ernest Pinkney Cox for $130.

On 20 Jul 1918, James B. Mason, Trustee for the land development company, sold lot 251 to Ernest P. Cox for $75. He likely built the house shortly thereafter

Cox married his wife Mary Rogers Craven on 24 Nov 1918.

EP Cox worked as a weaver in one of the mills, per the 1920 US Census (it doesn't say which one.) The street is noted simply as "Cotton Mill Village"

He is noted as a weaver in both 1930 and 1940 censuses

It appears he sold the house sometime between 1930 and 1935.

In 1940 he is living on Margaret Lane in Hillsborough.
