Mr. Carey Cox, of this county, furnishes us the following chapter of family history as compiled by his nephew, Mr. L. M. Cox, of Macon: “My father is ninety years of age, and in good health; mother died at eighty: two uncles and one aunt lived to be 94 years old.  I had eight brothers and seven sisters.  My youngest sister bore nineteen children, of these sixteen were boys.  At a family meeting in 1856, there were present two hundred and fifty-three of my father’s progeny and adopted children.  Over sixty of his descendants were in service in the late civil war. – Monroe Advertiser.
