Zachary Wilcox Marker thumbZACHARY TAYLOR WILCOX (1847-1926)  "Crown Prince of the Whiskerinos - What began with one photo and hearsay information about an old gentleman with a long beard born 160 years ago has blossomed into a story of the undying spirit of the pioneers that made this great country and those who celebrate them. It is the story of a simple farmer who grew up to become a Crown Prince, and all that implies."
