I think it’s only right I end with my great grandmother Jessie Belle Moorer, who according to documents was born on this day 124 years ago.(Feb. 28th 1890) Jessie was the second eldest child born to Cornelius Moorer and Linda Snow in Lowndes County, Alabama. On December 23rd 1904 Jessie married Scott Cox and together they had eight children, Mary, Susan, Lola Mae, Willie, Jessie, Albert, Ruth and Eloise “Ella”. Both Jessie and Scott worked as farm laborers to provide for their family. By 1920 they were living in Bay Minette, Alabama where most of the other Cox family members migrated to. On March 15th 1950 Jessie Belle Moorer Cox passed alway leaving behind her growing family.
