I would like to straighten up some of the information of the previous two messages - Mary Jane Wilcox and Helen M. Wilcox were born Wilcox - their pather was James B. Wilcox and he married Sally Hart - Sally was bor 1811 in Cortland Co., NY - James B. died in 1848
At the same time James R. Parker's wife Sarah Ann had died in Cortland Co., NY and they were married - either in NY or in WI - the two girls were Sally's children so they were correctly named Wicox in the 1860 census.
Mary Jane then Married William J. Berner and they went to Minnesota - possibly St Charles, Winona Co
Helen - whose real name was evidently Nellie - married Henry S. Clement and they also went to Minnesota - to Iosco and then to Woodville, Waseca Co where Nellie died in 1883. James and Sally sold their farm in Manchester WI and went to Minnesota with Nellie and Henry.
James R. died in 1874, and when Nellie also died Sally took over the raising of the children.
Henry and Nellie and James R and Sally are all buried in the same cemetery plot at Woodville Cemetery in Minnesota.

Anyone descended from any of these people - would love to hear from you if you do.
