Cox Family from Cheddar

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Vap Report 30 Jun 2020 14:45

Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help me please, I am still trying to trace my grandmothers Family Tree. My Grandmother was Florence May Twose, her Father was Venner and her Mother was Day from Axbridge, and her grandfather was Day again from Axbridge, now I have a William Day 1811 - 1887 married Lydia Cox 1815 - 1900 from South Brent; her father John Cox was born in Axminster he married Betty Dean in 1807 and died in Wisconsin USA in 1869
I am trying to make the connection with George Cox of Cheddar 1799 -1868 whom my grandmother had always maintained she was connected to...
Does this mean I have been barking up the wrong tree, I believe Day married a Cox????
