  • My Great-grandfather....

    My great-grandfather, B.B. Cox, was Chief of Police in Sheffield, Alabama during the mid-late 1930s.

    On a cold January night, he had information leading him to believe that a fugitive was at a local boarding house. So, being the cop he was, he investigated. There was a party going on when he arrived.

    Almost immediately upon entering the house, shots were fired. My great-grandfather took a single .45ACP to the chest, but managed to return fire, killing his attacker. My grandfather, in his 20's at the time this occured, told me that all the shots in the BG could be covered with his hand.

    Unfortunately, medicine being what it was back then, the doctors couldn't do anyting for my great-grandfather and he died.

    Chief B.B. Cox, killed in the line of duty, 24January1938.
