Bon Jellico Families

The Edna Cox Moses Family
By Edna Cox Moses (1982)


    The Cox family moved to Bon in 1919. Edna, wife of Harvey John Moses, was the daughter of George Washington Cox and Floria Oliver Cox (who was the daughter of Squire Franklin Oliver and Aley (?) Stanfield Oliver.

    Edna went to Bon Jellico School; her teachers were Bryan Johnson and Bea Steiner. “I went to my first box supper at Bon to help the school. I was too young but Mother was a good cook and made cakes and pies for the girls for the box suppers.” I remember the pot bellied stove and drawing water from a well at school. I also carried milk and butter to lots of the families in the Bon Hollow before I went to school. I remember seeing where the snakes crossed the road to drink out of Brian Creek (the roads were dirt roads) and we lived near Grandpa Olivers farm which was a mile from Bon Holler and from the school at the foot of Jellico Creek Mountain where Aunt Bertha White still owns; but the log house is gone.”
