While Sarah is noted in the 1850 census as being from South Carolina, a search for John and Sarah Cox on revealed two possible candidate marriages in Bertie, North Carolina, the best candidate of which was the marriage of a John Cox to a Sarah Champion. The name Champion was evidently more common in North Carolina than in South Carolina. Sarah is frequently given as Sarah Parks, but I have never seen any justification for this identification. From the census records it seems likely that she was married to John by 1830 and was probably not the woman married to him in 1820. From the spacing out of known children, I would guess that John was most likely single in the early 1820's and that Sarah married him around 1825 when she would have been around 30.

The 1820 census shows that John Cox had 2 slave girls in 1820. This would match one interpretation of William Cox's Will, in which he gives 2 apparently female slaves to son, John. One interpretation would have this John as a John Callums, and this seems to match well what is known about Barthena, who is in this category, but Nancy has contradictory information regarding her assuring us that she is a Cox, contradicting the Callums interpretation.
