About a year later his mother married Isaac Cox and they lived on the Cox farm on the waters of Mill Creek in Randolph Co. He became a pioneer school teacher and a lawyer, writing legal papers, wills, deeds, etc. He inherited the land grant that his father had applied for as the colonies were under English law and John was the eldest son.
