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:


Call for Help!

This week I am going to attend a class on research in the British Isles and see if I can learn anything that will help find Thomas Willcox's link back to England. If you have the time and resources at your fingertips (database, you live nearby...), let's join forces and figure this out!!!

We need...

A 1689 christening date in a parish near Exeter... which will hopefully include the name of Thomas's father (I think it's going to be Thomas or John...) 

The ship in which he sailed to Delaware... (His name on a passenger list.) I have seen a forum entry that said "York" out of Bristol. Can this be verified? He would have sailed in 1712-1725, somewhere in there.

We'll start with that!
