4. JOHN WILLCOCKSON, Jr. (John2,      ) b. ca 1744, Penn.; d. after 1830, Howard Co., Mo.; m. Sarah _____, said to be Notson. Thomas Stilwell's tax list, Rowan Co., N. C. gives "_____ Wilcockson, junior" immediately after "John and son, George Willcockson," and John Wilcockson," and John Wilcockson, Jr. appears on tax lists of 1768, 1778, and 1790 in Rowan Co. It is not known whether John, Jr. went to Bryant's Station, Ky. With his parents, or not, but it seems more likely that he stayed in Rowan Co. and tended the farms.

         The list of his children was found at the Pennsylvania Historical Society in a drawer of manuscript and typescript files known as the "Meherrin Collection." It was compiled by a very elderly descendant, Richmond Rodgers Wilcoxson of Missouri, probably about 1910. This lineage sheet states that John married Sarah Notson in 1780 near Lexington, Ky. No record of the marriage has been found.

         He and his family removed to the Clark-Estill county area of Kentucky as some of the sons married in that district. John and his wife moved to Howard Co., Mo., with their youngest son, David. They lived to be very, very old. Tradition is that their tombstones were there but the land was later cultivated and the stones stacked up and the cattle eventually trampled them beyond legibility. The 1830 Census of Howard Co. gives the following listing, in which the ages of the elderly couple may be slightly exaggerated:

         John Wilcoxson males     90 to 100 . . . . 1
         Females                           80 to   90 . . . . 1
         Females                           40 to   50 . . . . 1 (Martha, unmarried dau.)
         Females                           15 to   20 . . . . 1 (A granddau. ? )
