A place to gather and share information about the Thomas Willcox and Elizabeth Cole Willcox Family of Ivy Mills, PA. For more information see the Home page link above or contact Deniane Kartchner at Denianek@gmail.com. My husband is a descendant of Thomas and Elizabeth's son James who married Prudence Doyle. Their son John's daughter Prudence married John Christopher Kartchner.

Note: This is a work in progress! I am trying to verify everything before I post, but feel free to send me corrections and/or suggestions. It’s also not a complete history of Ivy Mills or a website for current operations, although I will gladly try to answer any questions and/or lead you to the right information.

I'm currently working on tracing this family back to England through this link:


Three Willcox Paper Mills

Ivy Mills was the first mill, a hand mill, established by Thomas Willcox in 1729. James M. Willcox took over with a knack for progress and leadership and built two more machine driven mills. The Willcox paper was rated as some of the best in the world and they had a worldwide market for their famous product.
