Re: Foxworthy family British branch

In Reply to: Re: Foxworthy family British branch by Diane Thomas of 127

Diane: From the small map that I have, it would seem that if Foxworthy was North East of Widecombe in the Moor, then it would be North of Buckfastleigh and West of North Bovey with the Foxworthy bridge at North Bovey. While stationed in California, near San Jose, found a Foxworthy Boulevard and a Foxworthy Baptist Chruch. I am told that the Boulevard was named after an earlier settler that was a farmer. The Baptist Church could have derived from the Baptist Preacher, John Peter Corn of North Carolina as he could have been an ancestor of one side of the Foxworthy Family Tree. Still am looking into that facet. I will have to get out the Census of England that have a bunch of Foxworthy's listed and get this information online to look at. Maybe from that there will be a gleaning of who went where and when. Until later Diane, take care. Aaron Foxworthy - from Aurora, Colorado
