Victim: Hazel Fern (Carlson) Cox
Cause of death: congestive heart failure
Circumstance: Hazel was the owner of the property, "Clover Hill," where she and her deceased husband, Charles Philip Cox, had lived for many years and raised two daughters, Carrie Jean and Carol Ann. "Clover Hill" had been in the continuous possession of descendants of American pioneers, William and Mary Haine, since 1835. The numerous Haine Lineage regarded William and Mary as the progenitors and "Clover Hill" as their family seat. Both Hazel and Charles were descendants of Clara Alice Haine, daughter of William and Mary. (In Hazel's case, through a step-daughter.) They had taken immaculate care of "Clover Hill," restored many of its features, and collected many artifacts, which were displayed as in a museum. "Clover Hill" was registered as a "Historical Ohio Homestead" and as "Ohio's Century Farm." It was the setting of well-attended reunions of the Haine Lineage in 2000 and in 2005. Hazel was a very generous and friendly hostess. Hazel was buried in Brownwood Cemetery, Bloomfield, where Charles had been buried, as had many pioneers of the area. "Clover Hill" was bequeated to her daughters, who intend to maintain it as their parents had done.
