My paternal grandparents. Charles was born in Canada in 1879 & died in St. Marys, Elk Co., PA in 1946. Rose was born in Johnsonburg, Elk Co., PA in 1884 & died in Emporium, Cameron Co., PA in 1952.
Granpa & Grandma Cox had 13 children, three of whom are still living as of today (June 2012). One daughter died in 2008 at the age of 103. Another daughter still lives in Florida ta the age of 102.
Grandpa Cox was a baker and I have a newspaper article that said he baked the cake for their a large family get together in 1940 that was 8 tiers high! Sounds like a wedding cake but you would have to have a large cake to feed 13 children and their families!
