I loked through "Ken-A-Big"...the story of Kanabec County, which has really great info about how the area was settled, but somewhat limitedinfo about the early settlers. Out of all your names, the only one I found referencce to was a Mr. Wilcox, possibly a relation. ?? It mentioned that this Mr. Wilcox owned 40 acres of marsh lands north of Pennington Lake in the 1870's, and attempted to develop a cranberry marsh there.After spending much time and money, he became disgusted with the whole project and abandoned his enterprise. Considering there were no rail ways through this area at that time, I'm not sure what he planned to do if his crops had succeeded:) Hope this is of interest to you:)
Take care!
