I am interested in learning more of the Virginia ancestry of Henry Cox, early settler in Blount Co. He was at one time in Halifax, Charlotte and Lunenburg Counties and had at least five sons who accompanied him to east TN: Curd, John (m. dau of Alex. Kell y),Ambrose, Tolliver, and perhaps, Henry. There were probably others. I am mainly interested in this family's background and know very little about most of his descendants who lived in the Louisville area. Will appreciate any information.
