  • Notes 
    • Your mother's father (Cox) was a Virginian by birth; he emigrated to Tennessee and married a Miss Whitesides. I think he lived in White County most of the time. At any rate your mother was born in Sparta. Her grandfather Whitesides had several sons and daughters but I know but little about then: Anderson, James and Boreland were the names of all I can remember. James was a lawyer in Chattanooga and said to be a good one, he was wealthy when he died. Boreland married Anderson's widow and went out to Arkansas and located at Spadra Bluff, three miles from Clarksville, Johnson County. He was living in Chattanooga, Tenn. about two years since. He has no children. Your grandfather Robert Cox (your mother's father) was a physician; he had three daughters and one son; Caroline, the oldest, married Eli Thurman and went to California; Virginia married John Wesley Woodward, a Virginia by birth, he was deaf and dumb but a man of good sense and a good education. Virginia lives in Little Rock, Ark and has two children: Gus and Orianna Emily. Robert Monroe, all the brother your mother had, died in Memphis, Tennessee; he was a sharp man but drank too much whiskey. [1]
