The Busey Family
Thanks for visiting!

This web site is an ongoing effort to trace the roots of my husband David's family line.  While you will see that we have located a fair amount of information, your help is needed to fill in the blanks!  I have a mountain of data that I'm entering - please check back often for the updates!

Edith Philpot
b 23Sep 1740, daughter of
Jacob Philpot
Edith Philpot was the widow of Issac Wilcoxen (Wilcoxson) of NC.  They had 3 children :
Rachel Wilcoxen 
b 28Feb1760,
Catherine Wilcoxen
b 14Feb 1762,
Aaron Wilcoxen
b 11Jun1764
Samuel Busey
Because the records were LOST when Rowan County Court House was destroyed by fire, we know only that one of the two grandson's of Paul Busey, both named Samuel, was the father of Matthew Busey.

No proof has been established to determine which Samuel Busey of Maryland  migrated to Rowan Co., NC.  If the Samuel of NC was the father, as believed, of John, Sarah, Charles and Matthew of Rowan County, then he would have been the approximate age of Samuel b 1707 - son of Paul OR of Samuel b 1709 son of Charles.
