May be a connection? On my side of the Hox(s)ies - G-Grandfather was C.D. Hoxie of Concord, MI(Mother was Miraim Angeline Wisner whose Father was Cornelius Durrin Wisner). I heard it was "Uncle John" Hoxie - cousin or uncle of C.D. (Mother always called him Uncle John and said he was really her Great Uncle) who went to Alaska (Nome) and was partners with Wyatt Earp in a "Saloon". Supposedly was a Texas Ranger at one point before or after. Was it Tom Hoxie who was there or were both Tom and John there at that time? Anyone?
Finally discovered the C.D. of my G-Grandfather's name - from his mother Miriam Angeline Wisner's side: dau of Cornelius Durrin Wisner! She married William Lewis Hoxsie, C.D.'s Father. Was always told that C.D. was his entire name - now I have doubts. Maybe it was or maybe "CD" didn't care for his name and simply went by his intials. ?? Either way, I finally know about this. Any other info would be much appreciated.
