Maureen, you asked about Doctor David Wilcox. I do not have information about him, but have a lot of background on most of the Wilcox family you listed in your query. William W. and Ann Wells Wilcox were my great-great-grandparents, and their son Frank was my great-grandfather. John Wilcox (or Willcox) was William's brother. They all lived in Omro, Wisconsin, in the 1850s to the late 1860s. Ann's mother was Hannah Cass, who married Abel Waters Wells. The Wells family was living in St. Joseph, Michigan, during those years. William, Ann, Frank and Byron lived in Greeley, Colorado, for just a year (1870-71), then went to Delaware, Iowa, where William died in 1873. Sorry, but I have no information on David Wilcox.

Maureen, I just accidentally discovered a story of David Wilcox. No way to verify it, but apparently he ran away at age 8 from Dublin, got passage on a ship to Canada, worked as a clerk to save enough money to send himself to McGill University for a medical degree. in
1832 returned to "L'Orignal", Ontario, where
he practised his profession until his decease
in 1848. About 1824 he married Miss Eliza-
beth Cass, daughter of Joseph Cass, of
L'Orignal, who was among the Revolutionary
refugees. Dr. Willcox had a family of nine
children, of whom eight lived to maturity,
namely: Edward; William; Josiah; David;
John; Daniel; Jeanette, who is the wife of
Elisha B. Dean, of San Jose, Cal.; and Su-
sanna. Hope this helps.
