Belle Cox ,when she was 12 years old, changed her name from her birth name to "Belle."

Quite frankly,  I do not think that her daughter Mollie knew her real name and I know that none of her granddaughters  did . As I said, I have only recently gotten into research on her linage. 

I always thought her name was "Nannie Belle." Although she probably did not officially change her name, she was always known as Belle Wigington and that is what appears on er memorial stone in Pine Hill Cemetery.

So, Nancy Jane Cox , as you have it ,and Belle are probably the same person. With Nancy Jane being her birth name per - Harry Leon Smith
