Not all the people in the Storey County cemeteries are listed on line.
Here is what I found through Ancestry.com on John Cox

Date of Death: 6 March 1882

You can view the 1880 census for free through the Family History Center [LDS] online or go to:www.nevadaculture.org
and use their free census lists from 1860 through 1920 for Nevada.
Hope this helps you. If you want I can go the Nevada Historical Society here in Reno and check the Territorial Enterprise newspaper and see if he had an obit....
