I'm very grateful to you ... for your excellent Cox websites.
I'm a Killebrew researcher working on their ties with Adams and Barrow in Jones
and Onslow Cos. NC. There are numerous connections between these families
and the Coxes there.
Hinchey and John Killebrew removed from Sussex Co. VA likely with John Adams of
adjoining Southampton Co. and his grown sons, William and Micajah, prior to
1779 and settled in Jones Co. on and near the Dobbs/Lenoir line. HInchey
adjoined Andrew Cox there. Wm Adams married in 1781 Mary Gooding and
Mary's sister Elizabeth married Aaron Cox.
Barrow married (1) Mary Killebrew and left Southampton Co. VA in 1748 and
settled on the north side of Fishing Creek in then Edgecombe Co. NC (in that
part that became Halifax Co. in 1758). In 1760 he sold out and with his
(2) wife Elizabeth moved to Onslow Co. In 1761 he was deeded land in
Onslow by Lewis Williams...wit: Moses Cox Jr.....

thought you might be interested in the above. Others from Edgecombe/Halifax
who settled in Onslow, Craven, Dobbs/Lenoir and Jones Cos. are Hustis
Humphrey and William Wilkins to be sure, and likely many others.
