      Joshua Cox of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, is sometimes identified as John Cox. However, those who have seen Joshua Cox's original will (Lancaster Co., PA, Will Book A, p.131) believe that the signature is clearly "Joshua."
      By unproven tradition, Joshua Cox is said to be the son of Sir Richard Cox (1650-1733), who was the Lord Chancellor of Ireland from 1703-1707. However, this claim is unsupported by any evidence yet discovered and I consider it speculative. It seems more likely that Joshua Cox and his family were among the thousands of impoverished Scotch-Irish immigrants who came to Pennsylvania during the early 1700's. The Scotch-Irish (called "Ulster Scots" in the U.K.) were Scottish Protestants who were transplanted to Northern Ireland in the 17th century as part of a British plan to remove troublesome Presbyterians from Scotland and use them to subdue the native Irish. The Scots hoped to find religious freedom in Ireland, but instead their lives were plagued by grinding poverty and endless conflict. By 1776, an estimated quarter million Scotch-Irish left Ireland to seek greener pastures in America. Most were transported as indentured servants, and once they worked off their indenture contracts, they quickly dispersed into frontier territories. The Scotch-Irish soon became the dominant European ethnic group in many parts of the Carolinas, Kentucky and Tennessee. (Note, originally the Scotch-Irish were just called Irish. The term "Scotch-Irish" was invented in the 19th century to distinguish American Protestants of Irish descent from the new wave of Irish Catholic immigrants.)
      Joshua Cox probably married his wife Ann Rankin in Ireland, and then immigrated with her and her family to Lancaster County, PA, around 1720. They settled in Rathmullen Township, which was then part of Lancaster County (now part of Franklin County). The Rankins were originally from the town of Derry, Ulster, according to some family trees that I have seen. They were living in Lancaster County, PA, by 1728 when John Rankin donated the land on which the first Presbyterian Church in the area was built.
      Joshua died in 1747. When Ann died is not known. She may have accompanied her sons when they migrated to Virginia around 1756.
