Albert and Ethel had four children John Edward Cox, Beatrice Mary Cox and Winifred May Cox who were born between 1910 to 1925 presumably at Rotherham, and George who was born in Dalton in 1925    Our knowledge of Albert James is very limited as we do not know for sure where he was born (Aldershot is one suggestion) and we cannot find a marriage certificate.

Kelly has produced some very informative results from her research, and has very kindly shared those results here. In a recent email Kelly writes.
" Hi John firstly let me say how informative I find your Dalton website.  Although I consider myself a Rotherham lass at heart, I've moved around all of my life, so my knowledge of Dalton in years gone by is quite limited.  Although the information above mainly focuses on my names of interest, it might help others fill in some gaps too."

Kelly wishes to learn more about her ancestors above and also their neighbours and friends, so if you can help with any information please contact Kelly at  kellym.cox@btopenworld.com


Many thanks Kelly for sharing your family story here.
