I've been following through on John Cox, Alexander's believed father and found the following:

This probably verifies that Polly Ann was his 2nd wife.

I will be working on the 1880 next to see if John and Polly are still living...hopefully if I can find them.
I did find Joseph B. and he names a son Alexander, so I am wondering if Alexander is a given name that runs in the Cox family back in time. However, I still feel like Alexander B. Cox was a child by a probably earlier marriage or relationship.
