I'm afraid there isn't much in the book about WILLIAM HOXIE except that he was the son of COLSON. Doesn't even list a DOB. An IRA CHARLES HOXIE does show up as an unplaced/linked line. IRA apparently came to CA during the gold rush. There's also mention of HENIETTA and EMMA HOXIE, sisters under a Capt John HOXIE line.
