I found this plane(panel raiser) in a barn on my wife’s family farm in Gates County North Carolina and after cleaning it up a bit I found the makers Mark ( I.Cox) did some research on line but couldn’t find much info besides that he was a early 19th century plane maker from the UK and he sold alot of his hand planes to cabinet makers here in the US. Not sure how it ended up here but I know that my wife’s grandfather was carpenter back in the early 1900’s.
I know little to nothing about planes so was hoping someone could tell me what kind of plane it is and something about the maker. I have attached a picture of hand plane and the makers mark ( hard to see)

Thanks in advance for any help / info you can provide. ( My curiosity is getting the better of me)
Also looking for a wedge and cutting iron to replace missing ones. (something from the same era)
