Elizabeth Clark is my great-great-great grandmother and was born on June 1, 1800, Lincoln County, Kentucky. Her parents were Christopher Charles Clark and Elizabeth Christ Ann Adams. Her siblings were Hannah 1789, James C 1790, Sarah 1792, Catherine E 1794, David 1796, and Haner H Clark 1798. Her mother was just twenty-seven years old when she died in 1800 in Gilmore Springs, St. Charles County, Missouri. It is not known the cause of her death but with the birth date of Elizabeth Clark being 1800 it may have been death after childbirth.
Her father married a second time to Hetty (Hestor) Calvert in 1804 and with that union came half-siblings: Raphael HF 1804, Julia 1805, and William Calvert Clark 1806 all born in Lincoln County, Missouri.
In 1822 in Lincoln County Elizabeth married Jesse Newton Cox, Sr. and they started their family with the birth of my great-great-grandfather Ralph HC in 1822 and soon to follow was William Timothy 1826, James M 1827, Sarah 1829, Mary Jane 1833, and Elizabeth Ellen Cox 1840.
She was only forty-nine years old when she died in February 1850. It is not known what she died of or where she was buried. Jesse went on to marry a second time to Nancy McDonald and three children were born to this union Nancy Emily 1851, Jesse Newton Jr. 1851 and Sarah Hannah Cox 1854.
Elizabeth’s husband Jesse went on to sign up for the Civil War and became a Private for the Union 8th Regiment, Missouri Cavalry Company G and mustered out as a Corporal. The 8th Regiment of the Missouri Cavalry (Union) enrolled between 20 July 1862 and 9 September 1862. They were Mustered between 30 July 1862 and 16 September 1862. They were discharged between 15 June 1865 and 20 July 1865 and were lead by Colonel Washington T. Geiger.
