My paternal two times great uncle Wardie (Wattie) Cox Sr. was born February 14th about 1881 to Eliza Smiley and Richard Cox Sr. Wardie and his five siblings were raised in Farmsville, Lowndes County, Alabama where they worked as farm laborers. Farmsville was also the home of his future bride and the mother of his 15 children Jessie Lee Soles. By 1930 Wardie and his growing family had migrated to Bay Minette Alabama for better opportunities. Wardie continued to work in the farming industry while in Bay Minette and was able to purchase his own property. Wardie Cox Sr. died October 1st 1940 in Bay Minette. Wardie Cox Sr. Is part of my history
