|Rebecca Hinshaw     [ID 00171]||Click here to switch to Ahnentafel view:|
(Rebeckah Hinshaw)    (Rebekah Hinshaw)    (Rebeccah Hinshaw)
Born 1756, Pennsylvania.42,a
She married Nicholas Cox, Sep 1 1781.1,42,44,58,b    Nicholas, son of Samuel Cox & Hannah Wierman, was born in 1758, North Carolina.b,c
On 10-6-1781 at Cane Creek MM, Rebecca Cox (formerly Hinshaw) was disowned for being "married out of unity".2
The 1820 census for Ross County records the families of Nicholas Cox, Aaron Cox, George Dixon, and Daniel Dixon all living immediately adjacent.d
Nicholas died Mar 16 1829, Londonderry, Ohio; age 71 years; buried Peecher Cemetery, Liberty Township, Ross County, Ohio.b,c
Ross County, Ohio Probate Court record Case 1345 contains a will and other papers for the estate of Nicholas Cox.    Children named are sons Jacob and Samuel Cox and daughters Catherine, Mary, Jane, and Nancy.    Daughter Nancy received a double share of the estate plus her pick of two horses.    Samuel received an extra $100, "when he needs it".    Jacob Cox, and George Dixon (husband of Catherine Cox), were named co-administators; apparently Jacob Cox refused to act and George Dixon petitioned the court for sole authority.    Reference is made to the will being contested by Aaron Cox, apparently another son who inherited nothing.    A codecil to Nicholas' will provides that Joseph Hinshaw may live with the widow Rebecca, if that be his choice.d
In the 1830 Ross County census, Rebecca is listed as head of household, still living adjacent to her sons-in-law Daniel and George Dixon:d
Buried next to Rebecca and Nicholas is an unidentified Joseph Hinshaw, died May 31, 1831, age 86 yearsc (making his birth approximately 1745).    Rebecca did have a brother Joseph, but he is believed to have died in 1827 in Surry County, North Carolina.
