Jim Love sent me this AWESOME photo of Ivy Mills in the 19th Century, which was included in a short essay by Marian Nash located in the Library of Congress. The essay is called "The Willcox Family: Some Random Notes." Nash was a lawyer for the State Department and a distant Willcox cousin.
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:
