Thank you for your reply.
Since I posted that I learned that was not the Stephen Wilcox I was looking for.
I have about the same kind of a problem with two Stephen Wilcox as you do.
In Dartmouth Ma. VR to 1850, it gives a Stephen Wilcox birth as 17 May 1747.
It also shows a Feb. 1782 marriage for a Stephen Wilcox to Ruth Allen but no information, as to who their parents were.
Family trees on rootsweb list Stephen born 1747 as being married to Ruth Allen, but no proof.
We have a family tree that has a Stephen Wilcox born 1778, which would have been before the 1782 marriage. A question is, is the 1778 date wrong, is Ruth Allen not his mother, is he a child of one of Stephen's brothers?
The older Stephen was said to have had a will but it has not been located.
Stephen Wilcox born 1778 lived in New York state, but we don't know where until 1820. Most of his children went to Mi. also.
You mentioned Maple Grove cemetery,
I believe that is where a nephew of Stephen Wilcox is buried. His name was Stephen Wilcox also and died in 1883, but I have not been able to get an obituary because I don't have his full death date.
I will check thru some of my genealogy, there was a Jirth Wilcox in Dartmouth, son of another Stephen Wilcox.
We need a study of all the Stephen Wilcox in Ma. and N.Y.
Thanks again.
