Monday Is for Mothers: Lydia Willcox (1775 - 1869)

The daughter of Obediah and Sarah (Talcott) Willcox, this paternal fourth great grandmother spent her whole life in New Hampshire. She was born on November 22, 1775, in the town of Surry in Cheshire County.

There are more records I will share with you from Lydia's 94-year lifetime, but I have run out of time here in France where it's after midnight and time for bed. Adieu for now.
