Augusta Cox's Death Certificate
In Response To: [WV] Eugene Cox ()
Thanks to Dawn's outstanding research I was able to find Augusta Cox's Death certificate, Hugh and Augusta's wedding certificate: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_mcdetail.aspx?Id=25977 and Hugh's birth certificate http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_bcdetail.aspx?Id=208090
When you click below, or on the links, it wil take you to the information sheet for her. Then click on view record to see the actual certificates. Scroll over to the right for Augusta's death certificate, she is the last on the page on the far right. It seems her husband Hugh was the informant on her death certificate.
You are lucky to have West Virginia relatives. In these documents, you have Augusta's maiden name and her mother's as well. West Virginia has an excellent state archives with pictures exhibits of African Americans online as well as their birth, marriage and death certificates online here: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/
Play around with it, you'll probably find a lot of your family here on the West Virginia site.
