I don't know the answer, but here's a clue.

My GGG grandparents were Thomas Cox and Martha Patsy Cockrell. After Martha died, Thomas married Dicy.

Dicy Cambron is shown on the 1850 census for Cobb County, GA in Bailey Cambron's household. At first glance, it seems that Dicy is Baily's daughter, but notice that her name is at the bottom of the census record, out of sequence with the other children. This makes me think that she is possibly a daughter in law. See below for household members and ages.

Baily Cambron 49
Mary Cambron 47
Riley Cambron 25
Andrew Cambron 24
Mary A Cambron 16
Nancy Cambron 13
Martha M Cambron 11
Dicy Cambron 15
Nancy Cambron 0

I have been unable to find a marriage record, but I think that Dicy married Thomas Cox around 1858, probably in Polk County GA. The 1860 census for Polk County GA shows the following. The Cox children are from Thomas Cox's first wife. The Cambron children are apparently from Dicy's first husband (unknown Cambron).

Thoma Cox 53
Dicy Cox 28
James M Cox 16
Sarah R Cox 15
William T J Cox 13
Henry N Cox 11
Ella F Cox 7
Harney J Cox 1
Nancy E Cambron 10
Josiah Cambron 8
Andrew J Cambron 6
Mary S Cambron 5

The family moved from GA to TX, and can be found on the 1870 census for Collin TX. There is a transcription error in Cambron spelled as Cammarn.

Thomas Cox 62
Dicy Cox 37
William Cox 23
Newton Cox 19
Ella Cox 17
Hattie Cox 11
Oscar Cox 7
Eli Cox 6
Lavozier Cox 1
Nancy Cammarn 19
Joseph Cammarn 18
Jackson Cammarn 16
Mary Cammarn 14

I hope this helps! Let me know what you think!
