Jaycox family. Jaycox was pronounced like 'squash' with a 'j' in front of it. Some say this was French, Indian or German. The various spellings for this family are only as good as the English interpreter! Jaquash = Jaycox. Here is the lineage proven to date:
David and Lilly Smith, around Greenbrier/Bath/Pocahontas West Virginia and Virgina late 1700;s. Children: Susannah married to Daniel Kellison (check Kellison message board), Hannah married to a Smith, and Isaiah married to Mariah. Do not know the surname of Mariah, could be Slaven(s) or possibly a Kellison? Legal issues with Daniel Kellison, Jr. provides info, about 1826 in Greenbrier about the time Pocahontas was formed, court proceedings between Daniel Kellison and David Jacox over land deed/title.
Isaiah and Mariah Jacox moved to Jackson County, OH around 1830's. I don't have all the children's name for this posting. Nancy married a Neff ?, David married Rebecca Carter/Canter, William married Polly Ann Carter a/k/a Dolly Ann and Mary, Elizabeth married French Carter.
French Carter and wife Elizabeth Jacox and William Jacox and wife Polly Ann Carter moved to Douglas County and Leavenworth County, Kansas. There both William and Elizabeth changed their names BACK to what the felt were their correct surnames, JaQuash. This is documented in the pension application of Polly Ann (then Gausnell or Gosnell as she remarried) as William was in the Civil War. These families are near each other in census records.
