Yes  I am through My mothers fathers surname Hagan side. Thomas Hagan married Sarah Boone Hagan born Wilcockson. Thomas Hagan lived  1752-1807  and Sarah lived  1754 -1790.  They lived  and met in North Carolina where the Boones immigrated to in the New World. Thomas father was John Wilcockson 1720-1798 the name morphs into Wilcox through Daniel Wilcox 1565-1605 L8pm-W36. It then morphs between Wilcock, Wilcockson and Wilcox depending on the person.John Wilcockson married Sarah Cassandra Hagan born Boone who was Daniel Boone s sister and Squire Boone Seniors daughter. Through this lineage I could be related to Welsh Kings. Through a Beaufort marriage I could be related to British and French kings.  The information keeps changing on LDS  so it is hard to know for sure.  They connected on LDS SITE. and then they put dead ends on my lines which is debatable  because through other sites it continues on to older heritage.  I would assume that I am most probably related to the Boones for sure and the Wilcox for sure.

That is wonderful!

I have seen the connections from Wilcox & Boone and also to John Wilcox and that continues through to Wales. I've also seen connections to a William and his father William in England which connects to French Kings and British Royalty.

I believe there are at least two, maybe three, separate Wilcoxson/ Wilcockson lines that might not even be related based on where they might have come from overseas. However, it seems we may be connected further down the line once we get to Wales and such.

I really would like to gather our family information and get a solid connection to England. Then we can dig deeper and theorize where our ancestors originated, but I hope we find proof to when and where. I've been enjoying the research.

My maternal great grandmother was a Wilcoxon; Mary Francis Wilcoxon. Her branch of Wilcoxon live in Prince George's County, Maryland. I have traced her to Thomas Wilcoxon born 9 Mar 1695 in Prince George's County, Maryland, where he also was buried in 1777. Currently searching for his parents and other ancestors.
