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:


Prudence Wilcox and St. John Church

The following website contains a wonderful description of the area of Philadelphia known as "Northern Liberties" and the St. John Church. http://hiddencityphila.org/2011/11/saga-of-st-johns-and-surroundings/

It was in this church that Prudence Willcox (Wilcoks) married Christian Kirchner (or Kartchner) on 6 October 1809. According to her birthdate of 7 Dec 1787, she would have been 21.
