Hi

I actually have some information on John Jaycox, son of Francis Jaycox(Jeacocks) & Maria Wiltsie. As most posts relate they had a large family of children. 15 I have below. I am also pretty certain the Frans, son of Francis died and he renamed another son Francis, or Frans according to what one Jaycox researcher told me, she had researched.
Descendants of Francis Jaycox

....              +Sophia Sheffield       b: 1794 in Massachusetts       m: Aft. 1836                            

Unless I am wrong, I believe that the marriage of Deacon John Jaycox and his marriages has somehow been erroneously turned around, and documented as such. He married Sarah Hazard 1st. I have researched this a very long time and found a great amount of proof of it in fact! Sophia Sheffield, was Deacon John's 2nd wife. and she far outlived him and is listed at least in 1860 and 1870census's. Sarah hazard died in 1836, and is buried in Riverside Cemetery in SNB, Chenango Co., NY. Deacon John, deacon of the First Baptist Church of SNB, NY (quite aged by this time, married Sophia Sheffield 2nd) According to the 1860 & 1870 census (she is widowed in 1870) and listed age was 74. Apparently, she was young enough to be a daughter of Deacon John's when they married after Sarah, his first wife died in 1836, that is, if her age is correct in the 1860 & 1870 census. (If anyone else wants to debate my theory) I politely welcome it.

The reason I know this to be accurate is, that I do Sergeant research. I have from my own personal Sergeant History that Ambrosia Sergeant b. 1827, was d/o John Sergeant & Isabel Elizabeth JACOX. she writes in a family book that Isabel was daughter of John and Sarah (HAZARD) Jacox. I would think Ambrosia would definitely know who her grandmother was, by what her own mother told her.! Isabella was reportedly born January 20, 1809. According to all the children I found in census's, they were all born before 1834, making Sarah the mother of all of Deacon John's children. Sophia Sheffield, being a step-mother! My outline..thus far(I have much more in generations) I am releasing 2nd generation to Deacon John only. He was the son of Francis Jaycox and Mary Wiltsie(or the correct spelling for Maria/Mary)

Somewhere along the line the "Y" was in my own records have been dropped, although I did find it spelled both ways quite often in census's etc.... I found, There apparently was a falling out with Deacon John & his eldest son, Edward, and he left SNB to live with the Wolcotts in McKean Co, PA, along with George and sister Betsy who married Timothy Abbey. But many of the other family members stayed around Butternuts and SNB, NY.

..              +Sophia Sheffield b 1794 in Massachusetts (1870 census says she was born in CT) m: Aft. sometime 1836       

the one thing I am positive is that Deacon John was married first to Sarah Hazard, and second to Sophia Sheffield. He did not have any children to my knowledge at all with Sophia, and she was a step mother to his children. I have studied this quite extensively and realize that all of their children were born well before 1836 when Sarah Hazard died. and Sophia Sheffield was a great deal younger than Deacon John when they married. she far outlived him. all one has to do is check dates on census's to make this revelation.              

Hope this helps someone. I do have more.....But only on Deacon John's line. My line of research is really Sergeant but these two families parallel eachother so much it was simply amazing to me to find all the relatives who kept marrying into the family!

Cheers,

Penny Kresl
