Hannah Cox, wife of William Cox, died at her home on Sept. 11, 1893, at the ripe old age of 80 years. Her remains were laid to rest in the Friends’ Cemetery near Darlington, Sept. 12. Funeral services were conducted by Revs. Newlan and Cox.
Hannah Picket and William Cox were married in Parke County, Ind., April 9, 1835, where they continued to live until the next year when they moved to this county and settled on what is now the edge of Darlington, but then an unbroken forest, where they continued to live until her death. For about fifty seven years they traveled life’s uneven pathway together, raising a family of two boys and one girl who still survive her. She was a consistent member of the Friends’, or Quaker Church, and lived and died a true mother and Christian, leaving a host of friends and relatives to mourn her departure. - s
