About the Author

Charles Cox, M.D. is retired from his ENT practice in Jackson, Tenn. where he has volunteered ENT surgical care to the Tennessee Crippled Children Services for years. He was a board member of West Tennessee Speech and Hearing Center and helped create the West Tennessee School for the Deaf.
He's a graduate of the University of Tennessee Knoxville and the UT College of Medicine in Memphis.
He served on the UT College of Medicine Alumni Advisory Board and is the President of the Tennessee Academy of Otolaryngology and Physicians Healthcare Alliance Group. He's a founding member of the Tennessee Board of Audiology and Speech Pathology.
Named in 1977 as one of the Best Doctors in America, Dr. Cox was chosen for the 2014 Ralph A. Johnson Humanitarian of the Year award.
Dr. Cox has been married for 55 years to Betsy Buckley Cox of Martin, Tennessee. They have four sons and eight grandchildren.
Historian and humanitarian, he is active in historic preservation of Civil War sites in Tennessee. His interest in history was greatly encouraged by listening to family stories.
He grew up in Union City, Tennessee, across the street from his great-grandmother, Lucy Whiteside Coble, the widow of J. A. Coble. Lucy Coble had lost her father, Captain Samuel A. Whiteside, Forty-Eighth Tennessee Infantry, and her father-in-law, Private James Coble, during "The War Between the States."
Author Charles Cox was told the story of Private James Coble on many occasions. He always wondered what motivated Union Captain David Harts, 106th Illinois Infantry, to write a letter that appeared in The Jackson Sun in 1914 outlining Coble's death.
When Dr. Cox began the journey some years ago to discover and write the story of his ancestor's death in a little known Civil War skirmish south of Jackson, Tennessee, little did he know what roads of history he would travel, resulting in his book "Monument to Healing." He has established a trust so proceeds of his book go toward historic preservation.
