Biographical history

A. Noel Cox, ?-1964, was born in France and raised in Algeria. He was educated in England. In 1908 he came to Alberta, where he ran the Foothills Ranche near Lundbreck. The ranch had been established before 1902 by John R. Cox. In 1915 he married Lorna Mary Heaton, 1896-1973, who was born and raised on the Park Ranch in the Maycroft district near Pincher Creek. During First World War Noel served with the 13th Canadian Mounted Rifles and trained at Medicine Hat and Sarcee Army Camp. He served as councillor and reeve of the MD of Pincher Creek for many years. In 1958 the Coxes sold the ranch to Edward D. Anrold and retired to Victoria.

  • Records originate from the Glenbow but are available at the Glenbow Western Research Centre, University of Calgary
