Research Notes

There is much confusion regarding this daughter of Jesse and Lydia. Here are the various references as I have found them:

1 - married to Solomon Cox - after she passed, her sister Mary married Solomon. Both Mary and Solomon were widowed at the time.

2 - name is either Martha or Mary, or possibly Martha May "Mary" - any one of these names could be her birth name, and any one could be a nickname

* Martha May "Mary" (Cox Cemetery, Wood Heights, Ray County, Missouri (location of remains undetermined) )[1]

* Martha or Mary Dixon (Cox Family Outline) [2]

3 - Multiple places of death/burial

* Cox Cemetery, Wood Heights, Ray County, Missouri (location of remains undetermined)[3]

4 - Multiple death dates spanning 40 years

* 1829 - FindAGrave (Cox Cemetery, Wood Heights, Ray County, Missouri (location of remains undetermined) )[6]

* 1838 (Haydock/Haddock Genealogy Database)[7]

5 - Multiple lists of children
