I am so grateful to Jamie Lovett for her upcoming contributions to this blog. Her father Jimmy Wilcox, a descendant of John Wilcox (oldest son of Thomas Willcox who moved to North Carolina), gathered four boxes of information which Jamie inherited upon her father's passing. We have decided to name the collection the "Jimmy Wilcox Collection." In the future, anything that is shared from Jamie or this collection will be labeled as such.
Jimmy Wilcox was born in Georgia (two of John's sons moved there from North Carolina) where Jamie still resides. Jimmy was one of the first presidents of the Willcox Reunion in GA and was writing a book about the Wilcox family.
So excited to start posting this information. Thanks again, Jamie. It's a lot of work and we are all going to be very grateful for your daddy's contributions.
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.
