COX, Hannah, centenarian, born in Preston, Connecticut, 25 June, 1776; died in Holderness, New Hampshire, 29 August, 1881. Her father was an officer in the Revolutionary war, and lived to the age of eighty-six. When she was thirteen years old her family removed to Holderness, which was her home until her death. In her twenty-second year she married Robert Cox, who died in 1822, leaving her with seven children. Up to ninety-seven, Mrs. Cox was unremittingly industrious. Until near the time of her death her faculties, with the exception of impaired hearing, were in good preservation: she walked without a cane, and read small print without glasses. After she had reached the age of 100 she was proud to recall the fact that, when five years old, she had knitted socks for soldiers.
