Hi--I found your site and I believe you have a wrong name here
I am researching the Wilcoxsons and all the children listed under your
Timothy (3771) Wilcoxson are the children of William Willcockson.
I have seen the reference in the book "The Planters of the Commonwealth" that
list William as coming over in 1635 on the Planter with his wife Margaret and
son John (age 2)
Here is some of the information that I have and the references--I hope it helps

May 26th of the same year and we have the word of "Orcutt, "History of
Stratford and Bridgeport" , that his first American home was at Concord, MA.
Since he appeared at Stratford, CT. in the year 1639 he could not have lived for
more than four years there.
