Parents of my 3GG Hester COX -- Diocletion/Dioclesian Cox?

Hester, born 12 Jun 1827 in Indianapolis, Marion County, IN to parents unknown. (This was from her obit.)

In 1846, Hester was living in Johnson County, IA and married Abraham W. JONES there on 15 Mar 1846.

A possible Cox person who could be my Hester's father was a Diocletion/Dioclesian Cox who was in Johnson County, IA at this time. His facts, as I know them are:

Born 1801 - 1810
22 Dec 1831 Owens County, IN marriage to Mariah Williamson

1840 - Park County, IN census
1 m 30 - 39
1 f 15 20
1 f 20 - 30

1 May 1844 - Iowa City, Johnson county, IA ---- owned lots, in State census, 4 inhabitants

28 Oct 1846 at house of Mrs. Cox, married Peter Roberts, and Mrs. Mariah Cox, 34. (On 15 Mar 1846 when Hester was married, she was married in the home of her future father-in-law which would seem reasonable if her father had already died. Diocletion was deceased by the time Mariah Cox married Peter Roberts on 28 Oct 1846.)
