I would like to find a birth or baptism record for my 2nd great grandfather Charles H. Cox, in order to identify his father. His father I'm told was from the United Kingdom.

The timeline I have for Charles H. Cox is:

  • born about 1812 in North Carolina (county unknown)

  • It would help if you could include a brief list of what sources of information you have so far for him.

    Is this the Charles H Cox to whom you are referring? "United States Census, 1860," database, FamilySearch (familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6GN-CRF : accessed 30 July 2015), Charles H Cox, , Rankin, Mississippi, United States; from "1860 U.S. Federal Census - Population," database, Fold3.com (fold3.com : n.d.); citing p. 68, household ID 460, NARA microfilm publication M653 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 803,590. If so then the edit button can be used to copy this into your question.
