Generations to come will be forever grateful that you took the
time and effort to trace these lines in such a thorough manner. Not
only are you pursuing each and every clue that arises, but have the
abilities and knowledge base upon which to make a valid judgement as
to its validity.
We are all in very capable hands with you at the helm of this
Piersol, in her 1947 book on the Van Every families, indicates
that Maria Jaycocks was also known as Mary Wilcox. Have you been able
to find any evidence of this other than that name appearing on the
tombstone of McGregory Van Every UE in Warner Cemetery:
McGrigery Van Every
born April ye 27th 1723
Departed this life
Sept ye 15th 1786
Mary Wilcox his Wife
Born April ye 29th 1736
You will recall that at one point in your research, you felt that
McGregory Van Every may have been married twice, first to Maria
Jaycocks and secondly to Mary Wilcox. When I found the petition in the
Upper Canada Land Records that indicated that Mary was the mother of
all the children of McGregory Van Every, we were able to conclude that
Maria Jaycocks and Mary Wilcox were the same individual. Wonder how
and when her name received this latter spelling.
