Notes

  • One source has his name as Emmet Edward instead of Emmet Earl Cox.  Inthe 1896 census, the first child's name looks like Nethi, but otherrecords indicate her name was Nellie.  The third child, 2 years old inthe 1896 census, had not yet been named, or the enumerator failed toget the name.

    Note that the census reports that Emmet has been married 17 years(first marriage) and Nah mack ir only 8 (second marriage).  The age ofthe first children reported in 1900 indicates that they are childrenof the first wife.  Naunocca married Emmet Cox in January 1893.  Ilater found one website genealogy that had the name of the first wifebut few other details, though they did report her father.  Thisgenealogy even had a photo of Nahkiape's father.  They also provideddetails on Nell, who is the only child reproted there for themarriagefo Emmet and Nahkiape.

    Note also that this genealogy had Emmet's name as Ememt Edward, ratherthan Emmet Earl.

    Both Emmet and Nau-noc-ca are reported to have been married twice.This may be an error on the record for Nau-noc-ca.  On the secondsection of the record, reporting tribe and percentage of blood, nosecond marriage is reported for her, but it is for Emmet.  Since Emmetis so much older than her, it seems likely for him, but I have notfound a record of his first marriage or any first marriage for her.  Afew genealogies report a previous husband for Cynthia Ann Naunocca,but with no details and no documentation.

    In the 1920 census, Cynthia Ann is reported as Mary N.  The middleinitial would match her Comanche name, in common form usually found asNaunocca, or int eh earlier censuses, as Nah-mack-ir or Nam-ma-kah.

    In 1926, the Comanche census reports Emmet and Nau noc ca with two oftheir children still in the home.  In the next several entries areother children, some alone with their own household number.  Each ofthe children's household in this family group are given a designationof a fraction of the parents' household number.  It seems whimsical,since they don't follow any definite order.  The husbands of daughtersNora and Nellie (Naunocca's stepdaughter) are not listed, which wouldindicate they are white.
