Agnes Prowse was born about 1833 in Prince Edward Island.[1] She was the daughter of William Prowse and Agnes Rider. She married Charles Cox on January 12, 1857.[2]

On the 1861 census,[3] the household of Charles & Agnes consisted of:

  • Males – 1 under 5, 1 age 5-16, 1 age 21-45
  • Females – 1 under 5, 1 age 21-45
  • 2 married; 3 single
  • In the past year: 0 married, 0 deaths, 0 births
  • Religion: 5 Methodist

The female under 5 would be Sarah. They probably also had a son, who was the male under 5. The identity of the male, age 5-16 is unknown. This could be their son, or it could be a servant, given that they were only married in 1857.

In 1881, Charles & Agnes, along with daughters Sarah and Agnes, were living next to Agnes's brother Joseph and his family.[4] In 1891, living with them was their youngest daughter, Agnes, along with her husband and child.[5]

Agnes died on February 10, 1898.[6]
