| || Notes for WILLIAM HENRY WOLCOTT:|
From William F. Dukes:
Uncle Henry had an iron fence around his house.He went to town every day and jumped the fence.Said that kept him young.
Henry Wolcott had a brother nicknamed "the Millionaire Rancher" from the Midland, Texas area.
Henry Wolcott served in the Confederate Army.
The Wolcotts had no children.Mary Margaret was 20 when her mother died, and declined to marry until all of her younger sisters were married, except Martha Virginia.Martha Virginia came to live with the Wolcotts when they lived on a ranch in Ellis County, Texas, situated on Village Creek, near Waxahachie.They all moved to Tarrant County about the year 1870 where Wolcott purchased a large tract of land lying near the town of Mansfield, and built for his wife a beautiful home.Subsequently, in 1902, they sold the property and moved to Hereford, Texas.At that time, his ranch in the west was the last one inhabitated in that vicinity until entering New Mexico.He disposed of the ranch and bought several sections of land at Midland, Texas, where they lived 20 years.Martha Virginia was married in the Wolcott home near Mansfield, Texas, in 1873.
