Other facts




  • In the 1900 census, it is reported that Emmet Cox has been married 17 years but his wife only 8.  This wife is Cynthia Ann Parker, also know as Naunocca, and reported here as Nah Mack ir.  This would seem to mean Emmet was married again, and indeed, other family sources report that Cynthia Ann was Emmet's second wife.  Cynthia Ann and Emmet married in January 1893, which would mean that Nellie and Mary are not children of this marriage.

    Nellie is the daughter of Emmet's first wife, reported to be named Napiape, or Nahkiape.  Mary seems to be the daughter of Cynthia Ann from a previous marriage to a chief named Quo-hadi (Quohaddy).  In the 1900 census, Emmet is reported to have been married 17 years, while Nah mack ir (Cynthia Ann) is reported as married only 8 years.  This indicates a first marriage for Emmet.  In 1910, both Emmet and Cynthia Ann are reported to be in their second marriage.  This latter matches the scanty reports of Cynthia Ann's first marriage.

    Emmet and Naunocca's first child Norah was born in 1894 (though this census and her grave report 1895, due perhaps to errors of some kind).  She was reported as 2 years old in the 1896 census, and as 5 years old in the June 1900 census.

    A search turned up a genealogy reporting some very basic information on Emmet's first wife, including the name and birth and death dates of her father, as well as Emmet's picture.  More details on their daughter Nell were also found there.
