(Born:???? - Died:????)

The 1840-1842 Philadelphia Directories list a John C. Cox as a merchant, living at 177 1/2 High Street. No John C. Cox is listed in 1839 or 1837. (There is no directory for 1838). (Probably not the John Charles Cox, of Philadelphia, born about August 15, 1825 and died in 1915 at 89. He was married on Oct. 25, 1866 to Amanda Steward Savage. It seems unlikely to be the right person since Poe was probably not corresponding with, or borrowing money from, a 13 year old in 1838.)
