Janet Cox has very generously shared the photographs and information about the Collier, Cox and Mann families and she writes "my father, James Pike Cox., Jr., told me how "Fly" ran him through the clothesline at the Mann Farm in Kingman, KS when he visited as a little boy. Emily's sister, Lucretia, was the grandmother of Carrie Wilcoxen, my father's grandmother.

My father and I visited the Mann Farm in 2001and he showed me the "moon and stars" watermelon patch. We came back to Oklahoma City and planted some on his farm. He died 17 Feb 2004, but I planted the watermelons. I entered one in the Oklahoma State Fair in September 2004 and won the blue ribbon."

Thanks to Janet Cox for sharing the information and photos on this page.
