Here is an interesting article I found through Main Line Today out of Philadelphia. It highlights paper manufacturing and the dealings of James M. Wilcox, Jr. with Congress in the late1800's.
The site also has a picture of a dollar bill that I presume was printed on paper from Ivy Mills.
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:
