List Members,

Because I have some of my DeCounter family on WFT, I receive many queries from folks asking me for the ancestry of Eunice DeCounter who married Joseph "Little Joe" Cox.


There is a quote on page 36 of Cemeteries of Brown County: "William E. Cox, a soldier Co. B 14th IL Inf. buried here, was a son of James P. Cox and Juliana Orchard. His brother, Joseph (little Joe) is here with wife Eunice Decounter and children Laurel and Emma and possibly Dwight."


This quote is in the relationship section for Cooperstown Cemetery. The Cox burials are listed on page 29. No matter how hard I look, I do not find burials for this Joseph & Eunice nor the children in this cemetery.


I can find no Eunice DeCounter in the area. I have found this marriage in the IL State Marriage Index:

COX, JOSEPH m SNIDER, EUNICE 05/20/1882 C /179 557 BROWN

Has anyone researching either the Snider or Cox families secured a copy of this marriage license from Brown County? I'd like to be able to give those who inquire a correct answer.
