Princeton-educated attorney, Leander Jackson "L.J." Cox moved his law practice to Arizona in the early 1900's shortly after Arizona statehood. L.J. and his wife Vollie, happily homesteaded the property in 1923. It was the right place to teach their three children Simpson, Teresa, and L.J. Jr., a love of nature and the great satisfaction of civic involvement.

Estates at Phoenix South Mountain

Simpson married Charlotte Lockwood, and the Cox family joined another distinguished Arizona family. The Lockwoods had arrived in Arizona in the 1800's.  The Lockwoods, like the Cox family, were active in shaping the growing Phoenix community. Charlotte's father served on the Arizona Superior Court starting in 1913. He then served on the Arizona Supreme Court from 1925 to 1943, becoming Chief Justice in 1929.  Charlotte's sister, Lorna E. Lockwood became the first woman to head any state court system when she was sworn in as Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court in 1965.  Previously, Lorna was the first woman on the Arizona Superior Court, starting in 1951, and the first woman on the Arizona Supreme Court, starting in 1961.
