Yes, I have more info for both Rebecca Cox & Nancy Shropshire ancestors. I'll include some of Rebecca's here:

Rebecca Ann (Cox) <Mrs James S. Ingersol>
was born 1823 Virginia, the dau of Mary (Jenkins) and Ezekial Cox. I found thru census that the family had relocated to Wabash Co., Indiana by 1840.

1840 Head of Household census, Page 2, Line 5:
COX, Ezkil, males: 1) 5-9 <Jonathan>, 2) 10-14 <David & Joseph>, 2) 15-19 <Jenkins & unkn), 1) 20-29 <Geo.>, 1) 40-49 <Ezekial>; females: 1) 10-14 <Mahala?>, 1) 15-19 <Rebeca?>, 1) 40-49 <Mary>
->NOTE: I've indicated in backets <> which family member best fits the age group. Also I suspect James was married previous to Rebecca, as in same census on page 3, Line 13:
INGERSALL, James S., males: 1) 20-29; females: 1) 20-29
