Monday morning at 10 o'clock Tuck Cox fell on Market street, just west of Green, and was carried by the bystanders to his rooms a half a block away. Dr. Cowan was summoned and stated that Mr. Cox had suffered a stroke of apoplexy and would probably live but a short time. About an hour later he died, never having regained consciousness. Mr. Cox was born in Mt. Sterling, Ky., forty-six years ago the 24th of this month. He came to Crawfordsville in the early seventies and in 1875 was married to Miss Flora Cochran, who, with one son, Howard, survives him. He also leaves three sisters, Mrs. Will Kramer, of Frankfort, Mrs. Will Mitchell, of Terre Haute, and Mrs. Dr. Groves, of Kentucky. His brother, Winfield S. Cox, died some years ago. Mr. Cox was in business for several years in Lafayette, but spent most of his active life in Crawfordsville. He was in various businesses from time to time and was "for some time a member of the police force. In politics he was an active Republican and was very efficient in his work. He was a genial, pleasant man and had a host of warm friends, to whom his death comes as a shock and a personal bereavement. - transcribed by Kim H
