WilcoxPlantation founded by Joseph Gee, a native of Halifax County, North Carolina, circa 1816 in an Alabama River bend that retains his last name to the present. It passed to his nephews upon his death. They transferred it to their relative, Mark Harwell Pettway, also a native of Halifax County North Carolina, in 1845 in order to settle a $29,000 debt. Pettway brought his family and roughly 100 slaves here in 1846. All of the slaves, except for the cook, made the journey on foot. The main house was built around this time. The main house was razed sometime soon after the last owner sold the property to the Farm Security Administration in 1937. The administration built New Deal type houses and sold the tracks of farmland to what were mostly the impoverished descendants of the former Pettway slaves. The community of Boykin is at the same approximate location as the original "slave village" for the plantation.
