About Margaret Belinda Wilcox

On the 11th day of Jan. 1798 a baby girl was born in Clinton Co. N. Y. Her parents, Samuel Allen and Sarah Jane Powers gave her the name of Margaret Belinda Allen. Her father, Samuel Allen, was born 15 April 1773 at Manchester, Vermont, the son of Jonathan Allen and Margaret Hufcut. Jonathan Allen enlisted in the American Revolution at Manchester, Vermont. After the war clouds cleared away, he, like many other veterans moved West. Jonathan finally settled in Madrid, St. Lawrence Co., N. Y. Here his son Samuel Allen and wife Sarah Jane Powers joined them. Where and how Silas Wilcox and Margaret Belinda Allen met is not known, Madrid, however, is but a few miles from Norfolk. Silas and Margaret were married in Madrid on 17 January 1818. They had two sons, Samuel Allen and Silas Almeran born in Norfolk, St. Lawrence, New York; a son, David Alfred, and a daughter, Phoebe Ann, born in Mountain, Dundas, Ontario, Canada. After they join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they moved to Nauvoo, Hancock, Illinois, where their son, William Christopher Wilcox was born in January 1941. Margaret Belinda suffered with ill health and during the expulsion of the Mormons during the harsh winter of 1846 it was worse. She died sometime in 1847.

As the image shows, her name appears on the memorial at Nauvoo Cemetery, also know as the Old Nauvoo Burial Grounds. However, she died and was buried somewhere around Winter Quarters. Here is a link for the Mormon or Winter Quarters Pioneer Cemetery

Until the contributors of the memorials for her son Samuel respond to add a family link, here are links that can be used to access their memorials: Samuel Allen Wilcox (1819-1898
