This John William Allen Cox was the father of Miss Gertrude Mary Cox who was a famous Statistician. She founded the Experimental Statistics Department at North Carolina State University. Both John William Allen and his wife Emmy died in Raleigh, North Carolina (at different times). I would like to know if they are buried in Raleigh or were they returned to Perry, Iowa for burial? There is a Cox Hall on the campus of N. C. State which was dedicated in her name while she was still alive. She died of leukemia at Duke University Hospital in Durham in 1978. She was a wonderful person and touched so many lives throughout the world. They gave her an honorary Ph. D. at Iowa State University and she was also a member of the National Academy of Science.
