I am researching the WILCOXEN Family of Ford County.  William Thomas WILCOXEN and his brother George Horton WILCOXEN, along with their mother, Lauranna (SPENCER) WILCOXEN and their families came to Ford County in about 1884 and settled near the town of Ford.  I am looking to correspond with all descendants.  I have lots of family information to share.  Some of the families that the WILCOXEN's married into are; REYNOLDS, TUCKER, IMBODEN, and BERRY.

My ggrandfather T. J. TAYLOR and his wife Angeline moved to Ford County in 1898, from Missouri. They lived in Bucklin until 1912. My grandmother Mary Susan Ethel TAYLOR married Frank Howard THOMAS from Bucklin. T. J. worked for the Railroad. They also ran a Restaurant and Boardinghouse.  Frank THOMAS came from Indiana, his father was John THOMAS, mother Julia.  They moved to Pratt, Kansas in 1912. Are there any ancestors out there?
