I am the daughter of Rufus Eugene Cox a native of Carroll County his entire life. He was the son of Samuel Wesley Cox, my grandfather. In my grandfather's obituary, my father's name was not included because of damage to the article. It should say Frank Hunter of Black Hawk, Rufus Eugene of Vaiden and Howard of Black Hawk. 

Thank you,
Ruth Cox Brunton Rossi
