** is dedicated to Clayton R. Cox who was the acknowledged Caudill Genealogy Expert. Mr. Cox died on July 3, 1999 at the age of 76 in Lexington, KY. I recall many years ago going on a trip to KY, out of the blue calling Clayton who invited me (a total stranger) to his home and shared with me his extensive knowledge and huge files located in his basement. His works include the 3 volume set "Appalachia Crossroads: The Caudill Family" along with numerous articles and was the one time owner/publisher of the Eastern Kentuckian Journal. Clayton will be greatly missed but fondly remembered.
