THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERP FROM THE BIOGRAPHY OF EPHRAIM J. WILCOX

The Tarbox genealogy, which touches Mr. Wilcox through his paternal grandmother (Rachel Tarbox), is interesting.  John Tarbox , Born in England, came to Lynn, Mass., in 1639, with his wife Rebekah, and he died May 26, 1674.  Samuel Tarbox, his son, born in 1647, married Rebecca Armitage, and their son, Godfrey, born in 1670, married Eleanor, and was a captain in the Indian War.

Godfrey Tarbox, the son of Godfrey and Eleanor Tarbox, born in 1695, married Hannah Laughton, and moved to Hebron in 1739.  Their children, all of whom were born in Lynn, Mass., but were married in Hebron, were as follows: Lydia, born in 1722, married John Porter; Jonathan, born in 1724, married Abigail Bartholomew; Thomas, born in 1726, married Deborah Skinner; Hannah, born in 1730, married Joshua Phelps; and Solomon, born in 1733, married Asenath Phelps.

Godfrey Tarbox, a son of Solomon and Asenath Tarbox, married Rachel Wright, and their daughter, Rachel, married Ephraim Wilcox, the grandfather of Ephraim J. Wilcox.
