In July of 1913, a large property in western Hillsborough was platted and subdivided, becoming the West Hill subdivision.

On November 6, 1915, J.T and Annie Kenyon sold lots 249 and 250 of the subdivision to W.J. Wilson for $150.

On 29 May 1916, WJ Wilson and wife Mattie Wilson sold lots 249 and 250 to JM Spoon and wife Martha Spoon for $233.

On 15 Nov 1917, James M. Spoon and wife Martha Spoon sold lots 249 and 250 to Ernest Pinkney Cox (Wikitree profile) for $130.

On 20 Jul 1918, James B. Mason, Trustee for the land development company, sold lot 251 to Ernest P. Cox for $75. He likely built the house shortly thereafter

Cox married his wife Mary Rogers Craven on 24 Nov 1918.

EP Cox worked as a weaver in one of the mills, per the 1920 US Census (it doesn't say which one.) The street is noted simply as "Cotton Mill Village"

He is noted as a weaver in both 1930 and 1940 censuses; in 1940 the house is noted as being on "Margaret Lane," which was the name for Benton Street before the street was cut off between Nash and Bellvue.
