Noah was blinded in Civil War in the battle of Kennesaw Mt GA in June 1864. The blindness was due to infection caused by gunpowder burns. he was discharged August 11, 1865 at Camp Dennison, OH and went to live in Bowling Green.
The first Cox reunion was held in Perrysburg on Noahs 65th birthday, according to Jesse U Cox, Noah's son.
Noah was a member of the U.B. church at Perrysburg; a kind neighbor, and he numbered his friends among the best citizens of the county.

Diantha's greatgranddaughter Judy Green lives in Jacksonville FL (I can be at her house in fifteen minutes). Over 20 years ago we each moved over a thousand miles from where both of our families grew up in Lucas co Ohio never knowing or hearing of each others family.
Twelve years ago when we met in the course of family research. It is a small world and a good one, when there are long lost cousins/ third cousin once removed if you want to get technical, who are as super as Judy. She has a gigantic file on Noah Cox including over 100 pages of Civil War Pension Records. She teaches a genealogy class, and I learn from her all the time, since she lets me volunteer at the FHC on the same day that she does. (And I generally laugh when I am around her as well.)

I have posted theinformation on this page with the hope that it is enough so that you can recognize your ancestors, and the hope that you will let me (and us, who are the known descendants) know. I have been trying for years to find the ancestors of Benjamin Cox.
I am at the point of hoping some old Bible is dug out of an attic in some county near the Ohio River, or some old Virginia records are found, where a soft hearted clerk secured them 100 years ago to save them from destruction.
In the meantime, I get my jollies from exchanging information with the living :-) so please drop a line.
