Cox's Switch

Classification: Query
Named after Charles Claiborne Cox whose third wife was my fifth cousin three times removed, Ruth Hall.

I have several sources telling me that Cox had the railway put a spur through presnt-day Splendroa about 1885.

I have another single source telling me that Cox was previously married twice. His 2nd wife was allegedly Rose Clara Bertuleit and that they had four children, the last of which was born Jan 14 1892 in Beaver Creek MN. The previous three were also born in that city and state.

So, now I am confronted with the possibility that (1) either Charles Cox did not arrive in TX until after Jan 14 1892 OR (2) his 2nd wife was not Ms. Bertuleit.

The 1900 census tells me that Charles Cox is married to Ruth Hall and there is a single child in the household, Thelma who is about 12 months old and the daughter of Ruth. There are no other Hall children in his household or the county.

Can anyone verify the marriage of Charles Cox to Rose Bertuleit?
