In Response To: Re: [WV] Eugene Cox ()
If this is the same Eugene Cox, my great-grandfather, I do have the birth certificate of his son -- my grandfather, Eugene Leon Cox (later Peebles), who was born on February 20, 1934. According to the birth certificate (registered under #3652), Eugene Cox lived in Caretta, West Virginia, with his girlfriend/wife, Julia Roberts Cox. Eugene Cox was 22 years old when the birth certificate was filed with the Division of Vital Statistics of the State of West Virginia on March 8, 1934. Julia was born in South Boston, Virginia. She was 19 years old at the time of my grandfather's birth. Eugene, Julia and the baby were residing in Caretta, West Virginia. The county was McDowell and the district was Big Creek.
I am wondering if the same Eugene Cox, who was born in Shinnston, Harrison County, West Virginia in 1912 is the same Eugene Cox, who was last recorded as living in Caretta, McDowell County, West Virginia in 1934. Eugene was 22 years old by March 1934. I also wonder if Eugene was on the 1930 U.S. Census in McDowell County. I guess that in 1930, he would have been 18 years old by that point.
I am loving the fact that there are many leads to this mystery. I am loving this very much! I am confident that the mystery surronding Eugene Cox will be solved.
