SALLIE COX:  Mrs. Sallie Cox, wife of Dr. P.M. "Tip" Cox, came to Fayetteville from Osceola, Missouri soon after the War Between the States ended.  Sallie’s husband operated a drug store in Fayetteville.  Mrs. Cox, having heard of a memorial association just started in Missouri, shared her desire with her friend, Mrs. J. L. Cravens, and immediately steps were taken to organize the Southern Memorial Association of Washington County.  Writing in the Fayetteville Daily Democrat of 11 June 1932, Miss Sue Walker made the statement that, "our organization here in Fayetteville was inspired by Mrs. Sallie Cox."
