Re: Marchant - Cooper

Tue, 09/01/2015 - 16:41
I know this post a few years old, but I believe you asking about Martha Marchant (1829-1902) who married Eli Cooper (1826-1910). She is my 4x great grandmother. However, I've had a very difficult time finding information on her. I think she first married a John Williams in 1842 and then Eli in 1847.

I just picked my genealogy stuff again after several years so I don't know if you have received any of this info or not, but here goes. Rosannah and Sallie were sisters, daughters of William Gregory and Elizabeth Jenkins.

Hello Joy,
Looks like we are cousins. John Lock married Elizabeth Chandler on 29 Dec 1869 in Henry County. John was the son James Edgerton "Edge" Lock and his wife Jane. James was my Great great grandfathers brother. James Edgerton "Edge" Lock was the son of David Lock and his wife Sarah.
They are descendants of Leonard Lock who was from Ilminster Somerset England. Don't bother with any tree on ancestry that says Leonard was the son of Lewis Locke as that is incorrect.

The line for you would go like this.

James Edgerton "Edge" Lock (1802-1860)
*
David Lock (1775-1838)
*
Thomas Lock (1758-1808)
*
William Lock (1735-1758)
*
Thomas Lock Jr. (1713-1735)
*
Thomas Lock (1684-1739)
*
Leonard Lock (1658-1711)
*
George Lock (1622-1682)

I believe that William Riley Kirkland, b. 12 Feb 1814, is the son of Aaron Kirkland, b. 1780, SC and Catherine "Katie" Turkette, b. 1785, SC.

Aaron and Catherine also had a son named Aaron.

One of the challenges in the Kirkland family is that they had a tendency to use family names... lots of Aaron's, William's, James' and Thomas', just to name a few...

Happy digging!

Hi Anthony,

I hope you can help me. I've hit a wall at my 2nd great grandfather, John Lock(e), b. Aug 1851 in Alabama. The earliest information on him that I have is the 1870 census record when he resided in Henry Co., Alabama.

I believe he was married to Elizabeth M Jeffords. They had 4 children that I know of: William D., b. 1879; Mary F., b. 1882; Joseph Wilson, b. 1886; and Zack, b. 1891.

Their son, Joseph Wilson, b. 1886 d. ?, is my great grandfather.

Any information you can share will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Joy

Looking for information on the death of Wesley Johnson (hanged) in 1937

Sun, 07/19/2015 - 17:43
Wesley Johnson was a black man who was hanged near Tumbleton after he was taken from the county jail in Abbeville in February 1937. He was arrested when a woman living the home of Robert or Rupert Barnes was assaulted, but no one believed Wesley Johnson did it. After being arrested he was taken by a mob from the jail and shot and hanged.

I am looking for any and all information related to this.

Re: Looking for parents of Thomas Jenkins

Mon, 06/15/2015 - 20:15
I am from Simon Peter, oldest son of Rebecca Pelham and Thomas Jenkins. I have found Jonas Jenkins, first in Edgefield Co SC in 1820 and then in Henry Co 1830. He married Leah Pullen in 1824 and I believe his first 3, maybe 4 children are by her. On the 1850 census he is married to Lucy. I believe he married her in 1849 in Clarke Co AL where he had land. Thomas and Rebecca were married in 1850 by her Dad, Rev. John Wm. Pelham who died in 1852. Their first child was Merina who married Cornelius Waters. They and one of their sons, John Byrd are buried at Panther Creek in Geneva Co. I believe our Thomas was named John Thomas. His younger brother, Richard Hardy Jenkins named his first son, John Thomas. There is more info if you want to call me, Sadie Jenkins 912/631-8822

I am also a direct descendant of Benjamin Wiley Pearce. His daughter married and became a King in Bienville, LA. That is my line through my mother.

I don't know if you are still searching, but I do have some information on Benjamin if you need it.

Hi,

I don't know the answer to your question but they might be filed at a local university and/or college. The local genealogical, historical societies and archives probably didn't exist around 1880 or when he died. Successful Searching!
