      Joshua Cox moved to Ohio and Indiana from North Carolina. He is listed in the 1820 census of Indiana as living in Randolph County. His household consists of 1 white male, age 26-44, 2 white females, under age 10, and 1 white female age 16-25. His occupation is listed as agriculture.

      He was a farmer by occupation and a Quaker by Religion.

      Joshua Cox was born November 5, 1789 in Monallen MM Pennsylvania, the son of Joshua Cox and Amy Weirman. Joshua's parents moved to Wayne County, Indiana around 1820. His father Joshua died in Wayne County in 1821 and his mother Amy Weirman Cox later moved to Randolph County Indiana.

      Joshua married Maria McGee in Wayne County, Indiana September 3, 1818. Joshua and Maria had seven children, five of whom died in Randolph County. There is a discrepancy in sources for the location of marriage for Joshua and Maria. Sources indicate Wayne County, Indiana but other sources show their two oldest children born in Pennsylvania. The sources also show Joshua's parents moving to Wayne County around 1820, Joshua assumed to be with them. His marriage date is 1818.

      In 1822 Joshua took land in Randolph County just north of the present Jericho Meeting-house where he lived until his death.

      Joshua and Maria were members of the Quaker community and the Jericho Monthly Meeting in Randolph County.

      Joshua was known, within the Jericho community, as "Lyin' Joshua" because he liked to embellish his stories with imagination to make them interesting. His stories were of the harmless variety and it was said of him by his neighbors that "he never told a story in his life that was harmful to any neighbor. "

      A picture of Joshua can be found on page 13 of the publication Jericho Friends Meeting and Its Community published 1958 by the Board of Trustees, Jericho Friend's Meeting, Randolph County, Indiana and Reprinted 1983 by Prinit Press, Dublin, IN 47335.

      Joshua died in Randolph County, Indiana on August 16, 1869 and is buried in the Jericho Burying-ground.
