    Notes 
    • Charles was married to Opal Olive Green, and together they had two daughters - Barbara and Geraldine. Opal came to visit us a couple of years ago along with Letty and some of her family. Opal is still alive and is about the same age as Doris. Opal and Charles managed a large hotel in the middle of Seattle for several years. He was one brother that I didn't get to know very well. He was gone by the time I even realized he was my brother. After he died, 14 July 1986, Opal moved into an apartment. I always thought Charles was the nicest looking of the Cox boys. [6]

    Since the Bellingham Herald a few weeks ago made a survey of Bellingham’s “big families”, showing that Charles Cox, popular driver at the Hotel Leopold, is the father of the largest Bellingham family, the suggestion has been made that Mr. Cox and his family be presented to the readers of The Herald. It is with considerable satisfaction that The Herald is able to comply with the implied request, and herewith presents Mr. and Mrs. Cox and their eleven children, all of whom were born in Bellingham. It also offers the suggestion that they deserve to be crowned as the champion family of Tulip Town.
