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:

The farm adjoins the Sandy Bank burying grounds consisting of about one acre of ground owned by the Society of Friends and was used by them for a century and a half for burial purposes. Of later years it is much neglected, overgrown with trees, vines and briars. ... Sandy Bank Cemetery is on the north side of the Providence road and is now in the Borough of Media."
