Confederate Veterans to be honored at Cox Reunion

This year's annual Cox Family Reunion will have a unique feature. The Theophilus West Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans will be on hand to unveil markers and pay tribute to three Confederate veterans buried at Circile Hill Cemetery.

The annual reunion takes place at the Circle Hill Baptist Church Fellowship Hall on the first Saturday after the 4th of July each year. Cox relatives from across the country and occasionally even from overseas show up to share conversation and memories.

This year's event will begin at 11:30 a.m. this Saturday with ceremonies to honor the three Confederate veterans buried at Circle Hill. One of these has never had a headstone of any kind. I'll take a closer look at all three over the coming days.
