    • Myra (1867-1955) in 1901 was boarding in Hull, Quebec and working as a nurse. She was bilingual. She moved to Ottawa shortly thereafter where, in 1903, she married John Cromwell Cox, a lumber merchant. By 1921, he had retired and they were living at Laurier House, 281 Laurier Avenue, with Myra, sister-in-law Sarah Turner White, his sister Florence and his niece Frieda. In 1923, after Cromwell had retired, they moved to Los Angeles. In 1930 they were living in Glendale. Also living in the household were Sarah Turner White and Cromwell's sister, Mary Cox.
