Don Wilcox (1910-1967) was the son of Caswell and Nellie Schofield Wilcox. He lived on Wood Island and in Seal Cove, Grand Manan Island, both in New Brunswick. Don married Myrtle Nelson Anderson (1900-1976), widow of Bartol Anderson. She had two sons from her previous marriage, Nelson and Gerald, who are listed in the Wood Island School register.
Don was the youngest of nine children. His brothers Archer and Leland (Lee) became locally famous for writing songs and poetry. Don's uncle Hiram Wilcox was also a poet. The family recorded many of the interesting adventures of their lives and some of these stories are in this collection.
