    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following history was written by Jay Cox, a great grandson of Joseph (a half-kin to the Chrisman/Neal lines). It was abridged somewhat in the Neal family history (as reproduced here) by Viola Moynihan:

    I can trace back only as far as my paternal great grandfather, Joseph Cox, who emmigrated from England when a mere boy, coming over as a steerage passenger in a sailing vessel about the year 1765.

    Even at that early period in our country's history the cry was "Westward Ho!" So young Joseph struck out across what was then our western border into the wilds of Kentucky that was known for many years as the "dark and bloody ground". There Joseph Cox settled and married a Mary Serginer. His wife's nativity is not known. They raised a large family, and lived and died in "Kentucky Country".

    -------------------------------------------------------------- "The Pence Papers" -- forwarded to me by Glenda

    Joseph planted the first orchard of the settlement [i.e., in Bartholomew Co., IN] and had good apples in 1826. He also entered two other [lots of] 80 trees just east of the first 80 trees over on Hawcreek.

    He floated down Hawcreek and driftwood to the mouth of the Muscatituck with his first grist to the mill of Colonel DePaww (or DePann).

    Cox built the first two mills in the new county -- one of them over on Hawcreek, on his land, and the second one on his land on Flatrock near the Highfill fond.

    The map of the survey of the Madison and Indianapolis State Road of 1823, on file at the Land Department of the Auditor of States Office, shows the location of Cox's mill at the point where the road crossed Flatrock. The site was but a few rods north westerly from the old Simeon L. Perry homestead -- now the county residence of Marshall Reeves. [I don't know the year this was written]

    Joseph Cox died and was buried on the "home-place", on the east side of the farm. The Shelbyville state road ran diagnonally through the farm -- later known as the Jake Cook farm, and the staet road was changed east to run on the section line. The new road, when opened, included the grave of Joseph Cox, when it was fenced on the west side of the road where it protrudes in the road.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Dianna L. Whitmer's web page states that he was born 25 Dec 1766 in Fox, Elk Co., Pennsylvania, d. 26 Nov 1851 Bartholomew Co., IN, and that he m.
    Mary Pope 1790 in Ashe Co., NC.

    I believe a census entry for at least one of his children states his birthplace as North Carolina. This has to be reconfirmed.

    ----------------

    1821 Tax list of Bartholomew Co., Indiana lists Joseph Cox Sr., as well as Joseph, Thomas, Peter, John, Solomon and Jacob Cox.

    Land Grants:
    There is a series of land grants in 1821 in Bartholomew Co., Indiana, Township 9-N, to Joseph Cox of Jackson Co., Indiana. One is issued 3 Sep 1821, and about 7 others on 5 Dec 1821. Each is for 80 acres. Also in the same township on 5 Dec 1821 are grants to Thomas Cox of Jackson Co., IN. So this does appear to be our Joseph Cox.

    1 feb 1828: Fountain Co., Indiana. Land deed: Joseph and Mary Cox to Frederick Trinkle. $150 for 80 acres.

    Notes:
    Two maiden name theories are commonly found in circulation: Serginer and Pope. Neither has c redible support in records. I believe that various researchers and myself have identified the origin of the Pope theory, and when taken with other extant evidence, we find strong disproving evidence for the theory than confirmation. We have not resolved how or where the Serginer theory originated. I saw it first in the Neal family history in an article by Jay Cox, without citations to sources. Some researchers have adopted the theory that she may be a daughter of William Serginer, a theory that at present has little confirmation, other than a commonality in migration pattern, nor have any records turned up to contradict it. However, this is more a reflection of the scarcity of records than of the evidence itself. Until more records are discovered, these two conjectured maiden names are not necessarily much more likely than any of the other surnames found among their peers.

    -----------------------------
    The Mary Pope Theory:

    According to Frances Griffin of Salem OR, Dr. Beck wrote in the History of Bartholomew Co., IN, 1888, that Elias Cox (youngest son of Joseph and Mary Cox) used to speak of his uncle Pope and cousin-in-law Migneon Boaz. Because this was written while Elias Cox was still alive, it would seem to have some credibility. However, the same also states that Elias's mother (Mary) was a daughter of Elijah Pope, which evidence (below) indicates cannot be the case, so there is at least one known error in that account.

    Migneon Boaz married Sally Pope, daughter of Elijah Pope and Mary Davis. Dr. Beck's account would suggest that Sally Pope and Elias Cox are cousins, which would imply that Mary (-) Cox was either the sister of Elijah Pope (thus dau. of Pilgrim Pope) or sister to his wife Mary Davis (which can't be since they would both be named Mary. Plus, Mary Davis's father mentions only his daughter Mary Pope in his will). The natural conclusion from Dr. Beck's account would be that Mary is the daughter of Pilgrim Pope and Olive Surginer.

    However, evidence is against the theory that she was a daughter of Pilgrim Pope.

    Elijah Pope did leave an accounts book which is housed at the Indiana historical society, with names of his wife, children, brother, father, etc., but does not list Mary as a sister.

    Ruby has also located a "Deed by Heirs" in Rowan Co., NC, 1791, in which Elijah and Nathan Pope, "heirs of their honored father Pilgrim Pope", sold his 640 acre tract (which was adjacent to William Surginer). Mary, the wife of Joseph Cox, was living on that date, and she would have also been an heir if she was indeed his daughter, so she and her husband should have had to acknowledge the sale of the tract. There is no mention of her in that document.

    Ruby has also located the will for Olive (Surginer) (Pope) Dickson, widow of Pilgrim Pope, who would be the mother of Mary (--) Cox if the Pope theory were correct. The will was probated in Crawford Co., IN in May 1820, in which she names her two living Pope sons (Nathan and Elijah) as well as her Dickson stepsons (James, Daniel, Duglis, and Ellichander), without menion of Mary Cox. Note however that she ONLY names sons and step-sons. One of her daughters witnessed the will, but did not appear in it.

    Together the Elijah Pope accounts book, the Deed by Heirs document, and the will, all appear to indicate that Mary, the wife of Joseph Cox, was likely NOT a daughter of Pilgrim Pope (or therefore, a sister of Elijah Pope). This Pope parentage theory is repeated hundreds of times, but seems to be based ONLY on the Barth. Co. History comment, when in fact, that reference to "cousin" may not be a literal first cousin. I would urge other researchers to NOT spread the Pope "misinformation" theory further.

    Note: 1820 Census, Crawford Co., IN, lists Pilgrim Pope and Elijah Pope. No Cox or Surginer listed.

    Dianna L. Whitmer has Mary Pope, with death 14 Oct 1846 Bartholomew Co., IN on web page.

    Hanneman's 1993 "The Ruddick Family in America", p. 138, also states the Mary Pope theory, without further elaboration.

    ---------------------

    The Surginer theory:

    Given without documentation in the Neal family history.
    Ruby believes, without proof, that she was probably a daughter of William Surginer (the same who owned land in Rowan Co., NC, adjacent to Pilgrim Pope). I have no yet found the origin of the Surginer claims.

    According to Ruby, William Surginer was probably a brother to Olive Surginer who married Pilgrim Pope. They always moved together, and after Pilgrim Pope's death in 1790, William continues to make moves with Elijah Pope and his mother until they went to Indiana in 1815.

    Notes:
    Linda Lucille (Rappe)(Chrisman) Chambers has a picture which is believed to be him and a brot her taken in Dublin, Ireland in 1860. Before I found the name of Nancy's father on her death certificate, family believed him to be named Patrick Devine and the brother in the picture named Will.

    I (Lonnie Chrisman) picked my grandpa Cliff Rappe's memories regarding this side of the family (before I had even learned his identity). This was circa 1992. He said he could remember once when he was a boy, about 4 years old (i.e., about 1920), when his great grandpa [James] Devine came to visit them in Oregon. At that time, he was an old man with a red beard. My grandpa Cliff remembers sitting on his leg during the visit, and listening to his grandpa tell him that he was returning home [sic] and they would never see each other again. [I believe he was returning to Illinois, and that my grandpa remembered the part incorrectly.]

    !Census (1870): Taylorville, Christian Co., IL, p. 169, dwelling 322 Fam 320: McDermot, ?Amasa, 61, WM, Farmer, $2400/00, b. Ireland, parents
    foreign born, eligible to vote.

    A search of all households in Taylorville in the 1880 census turned up no Devine families. He was also not found in the 1880 soundex for Illinois (there were 3 James Devines who were b. Ireland, none of which matched this James. First age 50 in Chicago, second age 33 in Chicago, and 3rd 26 in Harmon Twp, Lee Co.) Conclusion: He had probably not immigrated in time for the census of 1860, and had probably moved out of Illinois by 1880.

    Moved to Cass Co., Nebraska about 1879.

    I did not find them in the 1885 Nebraska State census.

    Research Leads:

    A naturalization for a James Devine was filed in 1856 in Geneva, Kane Co. Illinois [Passenger & Immigration Lists Index, 1991-5, Cum. Suppl., Vol.1, 1988; Kane Co., Ill., Naturalization Records, originals from Clerk of Kane Co., Ill, Box 112, Geneva Ill., 60134. Also Kane Co., Genealogy Soc., P.O.Box 504, Geneva Ill, 60134]. This seems a little too far north for him, but it remains a possibility.

    Other immigrants (* in front means good match to age):

    *7. James Devine, age 20 from Ireland, arrived 10 Jun 1861 on ship W.F. Schmidt from Tralee.
    *8. James Devine, age 20, plumber from Ireland, arrived 14 Aug 1860 on the Harvest Queen from Liverpool.
    *9. James Devine, age 22, laborer from Ireland, arrived 18 May 1863 on the New World from Liverpool.
    *10 James Devine, age 22, laborer from Ireland, arrived 22 Aug 1864 on the Kedar from Liverpool.
    [Records 7-10 from CastleGarden.org]
    *11 Jas Devine, age 25, male laborer from Ireland to US, arrived 23 Jan 1866 on the Nova Scotian from Liverpool.

    I ordered and searched microfilm #0986733 -- naturalizations of Christian Co., Illinois, and found no record of him. The only Devine found on that real was the intention of a Daniel Devine, dated 4 Sept 1871 (#153 on item 1 of that film). The second for final papers for that Daniel never appeared. Daniel Devine's homeland was under Queen Victoria, but otherwise unidentified.

    !Obituary: Hubbard Enterprise, August 5, 1921, page 1: DEATH OF MRS. H.C. REED
    Sunday morning July 31, about six o'clock, Mrs. H. C. Reed passed to her reward at the family home on the William Wolfer place south of town. Mrs. Reed and family came to hubbard in June, 1920, mostly with the hope of benefitting Mrs. Reed's health, the past four years having been a sufferer from diabetes. Soon after coming to Oregon improvement was steady and the improvement continued until a short time before her death. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Methodist church, of which deceased was a member, friends having beautifully decorated the altar rail previously. Rev. Wm. Nicholl, her pastor, conducted the service.
    Interment in the Hubbard cemetery. Hubbard citizens appreciated the family's loss in saying goodbye to mother and companion so soon after coming to the community and their neighbors tried to do their part.
    Prior to Mr. Reed's moving to the valley from the old home in Minnesota, he purchased a part of the Goudy tract and had leased the near by Wm. Wolfer farm until their own home was ready and it was here Mrs. Reed passed on.
