Henry Wilcox, VA to TX, wed Almira Bowles Bowen, 1839

I'd been led to believe that Henry Wilcox was from Rhode Island, but a Mr. J. M. Wilcox wrote and told me that Henry Wilcox was from VA, supposedly from Rockbridge Co. Unfortunatley, Mr. Wilcox wrote to me on 5 March 2000 and I never got the message. Now his e-mail address is invalid. So I don't know how he came by his Wilcox information.
What I do have documentation for is the marriage of Henry Wilcox and Almira Bowles Bowen in Brazoria Co., TX in 1839. The 1840 census for Brazoria showed that he had title to 554 acres of land and 50 cattle.
Almira was previously married to Sylvester Bowen.
If anyone knows about Henry Wilcox from Rockbridge Co., VA, please do contact me.
