Descendants of

William LOCK and Eleanor [-?-]

 

First Generation

 

1. William LOCK was born about 1730. He died about 1803 in Granville County, North Carolina. William married Eleanor [-?-] about 1750. Eleanor was born about 1732. She died between 1808 and 1823 in Granville County, North Carolina.

            William received a land grant of 70a in Granville County, North Carolina on 15 Oct 1783[1]. In 1788 they were living in the Epping Forrest District of Granville County[2] William bought 225a on River Creek from Charles Rust Eaton in 1780[3]. There was a John Lock who received a land grant of 480a 1 Mar 1780 on the Tar River.  Part of the date was written as the 4th year of Independence, which would be 1780. I don’t know if John is related to William. I need to do more research. He married Lucretia Hicks Jordan about 1774 in Granville County. John was born about 1754 in Roanoke, Virginia[4].

            William Lock and William and Mosses Floyd are on the same page on the 1790 US Census for Granville County, North Carolina. Some of William Lock’s children married William Floyd’s children.

            William's will was dated 20 Apr 1793, probated Aug. Court 1803[5]. Jonathan Lock was granted administration and the 200 pound bond was secured by William Lock[6]. The will was proved by Joshua Hutcherson, Eleanor Lock qualified as executrix[7]. 

            As in other branches of my family you see the same families intermarrying.  Probably because they lived near each other and travel was difficult so they didn't meet a lot of different people.  I believe the Locks and Floyds were Methodists, which as far as I can tell are quite similar to the beliefs of the Quaker faith.

Joshua Hutchins Jurat

? Glasyoner?                                           signed William Lock (very weakly)

State of N. Carolina                                                    August Court 1803

Granville County

 

The foregoing Will was duly proven in open court by the oath of Joshua Hutchinson a subscribing witness Thereto ordered to be Record at the same time Eleanor Lock came forward and qualified as an Executress

                                                                        ?? Clk

  William stated when he made the will that he was sick.  Did he live 10 more years or didn't they bother going to court until something else happened.  The will also calls Jonathan and Stephen sons, and Katron, Martha, Marget daughters but does not mention the relationship of Cloe, Susannah, Rhoda, Hezekiah and Joel.  However, Jonathan in his will calls Cloe, Susannah and Rhoda sisters. Kinship can be assumed.

  I don't know the proper arrangement of the children, but they are usually listed from oldest to youngest in wills. 

  William and Eleanor had the following children:

               2 M i.   Jonathan LOCK was born about 1751. He died after 22 Nov 1822 in Granville County, North Carolina. Jonathan married Elisabeth Suit 1 Jun 1782, John Sute was the bondsman, Philip Vass, Witness[9].  According to his will proved 1823 he doesn't appear to have had any children. 

                             His will was useful in verifying his brothers and sisters. He names Elizabeth Lock, his wife; he wished Bitha Suit to live with his wife. Sisters: Susannah Suit, wife of John Suit; Katherine Lock, Martha Floyd, Cloe Lock, Rhoda Hayes; brother: Stephen Lock.  He left James Clark, son of John Clark 100 acres and John Clark the balance of the tract, Jonathan Walker son of James Walker Junr. half of a tract of land and John Jackson son of Frances Clark the other half.  He signed the will with his mark, it was dated 22 Nov 1822 and was proved in February 1823 court. I wonder if the Clarks and Walkers are related or friends[10].

              3 M     ii.   Stephen LOCK was born about 1756, deceased after 22

                             Nov 1822.

               4 F iii.   Katharine LOCK was born about 1758. Katharine was called Catron in her father's will.  She probably did not marry.

               5 F iv.   Martha LOCK was born about 1760. She married George FLOYD, son of William FLOYD and Elizabeth [-?-], on 4 Apr 1795 in Granville County, North Carolina, Hezekiah Highfill, bondsman, Step. (Stephen) Sneed, Witness[11]. George Floyd was born about 1763 in Granville County. George married 1st Keziah Parish 19 Dec 1786, Hezekiah Highfill, bondsman, B. Searcy, Witness.

               6 F v.   Marget LOCK was born about 1762. She married Alexander Fowler 2 Sep 1789, Stephen Lock bondsman, A. Henderson, Witness  She is not mentioned in her brother Jonathan's will so may have died before him[12]. 

               7 F vi.   Cloe LOCK was born about 1764 in Granville County, North Carolina. Cloe may not have married because she is called Cloe Lock in her brother Jonathan's will .

               8 F   vii.   Susannah LOCK was born about 1766 in Granville County, North Carolina. Susannah must have married John Suit, who could be related to her brother Jonathan's wife.

               9 F   viii.   Rhoda LOCK was born about 1768 in Granville County, North Carolina. Rhoda married Hezekiah Hays 9 Nov 1789, Willis Cooper, bondsman, H. Potter, Witness. She is called Rhoda Hayes in her father’s and brother's will[13]. 

             10 M   ix.   Joel LOCK was born in 1772 in Granville County, North Carolina. Joel is not mentioned in his brother Jonathan's will so he may have died before then, however Jonathan didn't mention Hezekiah either and he was living at that time. Maybe they had both moved away before 1822 and they no longer had contact.

+        11 M   x.   Hezekiah LOCK was born about 1775 and died before 12 Jun 1844.

   

Second Generation

 

11. Hezekiah LOCK (William)[14] was born about 1775 in Granville County, North Carolina. He died before 12 Jun 1844 in Randolph County, Indiana. Hezekiah married[15] 1st Sarah FLOYD, daughter of William FLOYD[16] and Elizabeth [-?-], on 20 Aug 1799 in Granville County. George Floyd, bondsman and W. M. Sneed, Witness. Sarah was born about 1780 in Granville County. She died about 1832 in Randolph County, Indiana. Hezekiah married[17] .2nd Nancy LLOYD, probable daughter of John LLOYD and Ailsy HARRISON, on 28 Feb 1833 in Randolph County, Indiana. Nancy was born about 1801 in Guilford County, North Carolina. Nancy married Thomas Butt 12 Jun 1844, so Hezekiah Lock must have died before this date.

  Hezekiah moved from Granville County to Guilford County between 1810 and 1812 and to Indiana between 1820 and 1830 according to census, military and land records.  He may have traveled Daniel Boone's trail through Kentucky to Cincinnati and then north to Randolph County, Indiana. He was in Guilford County militia during the War of 1812 and served in the 6th Regiment, 2nd Company, detached from 1st Guilford Regiment[18]. The National Archives has no pension or military file for him.  Hezekiah's sister Deliliah and her husband Hezekiah Highfill also moved to Guilford County where they remained. Most of the other siblings remained in Granville County.

  I have estimated by using census records that Hezekiah and Sarah had 9-11 sons and 3-4 daughters. It is possible that some of the children in his household were not his, but I believe they were because the number and sex of the children was consistent from census to census. He was listed as Ezekial on the 1800 Census on the Granville County, North Carolina[19]. It shows 1m under 10, (Joel), 1m 16-25, Hezekiah, 1f under 10, (unknown, not on 1810 census) and 1f 16-25 (Sarah), but if they were married in 1799 the children were twins or not both their children.

He is listed as Ezekiah on the 1810 Census for Granville County, North Carolina[20], with 4m under 10 (William M., James 2 unknown), 1m 10-15 (Joel), 1m 26-44 (Hezekiah), 1f under 10 (Abigail), 1f 26-44 (Sarah).

The 1820 U.S. Census for Guilford County, North Carolina[21], shows 2m under 10 (Eli and George), 1m 10-15 (William), 1m 16-18 (Unknown) 3m 16-26 (Joel, William, unknown), 1m 26-45 (Hezekiah) and 2f under 10 (Elizabeth and unknown), 1f 10-16 (Abigail), 1f 26-45 (Sarah), 3 in agriculture and 2 in manufacturing, probably blacksmiths, or wagon makers.

 The 1830 Census for Greensfork Township, Randolph County, Indiana[22], shows 1m under 5 (James W.), 1m 5-10 (Samuel F.), 1m 10-15 (Eli), 1m 15-20 (George W.) and 1m 50-60 (Hezekiah); 1f 15-20 (Elizabeth), 1f 20-30 (unknown), and 1f 40-50 (Sarah).

1840 US Census[23] Hezekiah Lock 1m under 5 (John?), 1m 5-10, 1m 70-80, 1f under 10, 1f 30-40 (Nancy, 2nd wife) I wonder if the children were hers by another marriage or possibly his grandchildren, perhaps she was the widow Lloyd.  Thomas, Jeremiah and John Lloyd lived near Hezekiah.

On the 1850 and 1860 census for Randolph County, Indiana we find a William Lock age 45 born North Carolina, Joel Lock age 53 on 1850 census and age 60 on the 1860 census born North Carolina; George age 37 born North Carolina, Eli is in Tippicanoe County, born in Indiana. 

  The males in this family were either; farmers, wagon makers, or black smiths. That is probably why they were scattered. There was probably not enough work for the wagon makers and black smiths if they stayed in the same area. Their grandfather William Floyd was a blacksmith.

  On 9 Nov 1839 Hezekiah sold land to Elisha Nichols, the south 1/2 SE Qtr Sec. 17, Twp. 19, Range 15. On 18 Mar 1839 he sold the SW Qtr NW Qtr  trac Sec. 20, Twp 19, Rng 15, 38-83 to Andrew Green. He also bought Sec. 33, Twp 17, Rng 1, from Isaac Engle on 15 Jun 1840. Hezekiah received a land grant from the Cincinnati, Ohio land office on 10 Nov 1840, for 40 acres, Section 34, Twp 17-N, Rng 1-W in Randolph County, Indiana[24]. He sold land, the south end of section 33, twp 17, Rng 1 to Thomas A. Middleton on 12 Nov 1846[25]. So he must have bought some land earlier.

Another possible child

Isaac b.c1803, North Carolina, farmer, who married Mary [-?-] and they had W. M. b.c1835, Martha A. b.c1841, Isaac N. b.c1844, and Alvin Wares b.c1857 all born in Indiana.

An account of Hezekiah Lock's estate was taken in Randolph County, Indiana in Nov. 1848 by Thomas A. Middleton[26], it does not mention the names of his children.

Hezekiah and Sarah had the following children:

+        12 M i.   Joel LOCK was born about 1800 and died after 1880.

          12aF       Female LOCK, born before 1800 and died before 1810.

            13 M ii.   James LOCK was born about 1801 in Granville County, North Carolina. James married Lucy [-?-]. He was a wagon maker.

+        14 M   iii.  William M. LOCK was born in 1805 and died between 1881 and 1884.

+        15 F iv.   Abigail LOCK was born about 1806 and died before 3 Oct 1839. She married Isaac Calhoun 8 Nov 1826 in Guilford County, North Carolina. 

             16 F v.   female LOCK was born about 1807 in North Carolina.

+        17 F vi.   Elizabeth LOCK was born about 1815 and died about Aug 1879.

+        18 M   vii.   George Wesley LOCK was born on 21 Nov 1816 and died on 6 Dec 1854.

+        19 M   viii.   Eli LOCK was born about 1817 and died between 1860 and 1870.

   

Third Generation

 

         12. Joel LOCK (Hezekiah, William) was born about 1800 in North Carolina. He died after 1880 probably in Steuben County, Indiana. Joel married 1st Jensey "Jane" MAY on 14 Feb 1822 in Rockingham County, North Carolina. Jensey was born about 1802 possibly in Pennsylvania. She died about 1838 in Ohio. Joel married 2nd Sarah MAXWELL about 1842 in Preble County, Ohio. Sarah was born[27]  about 1813 in Ohio. She died between 1870 and 1880 probably in Steuben County, Indiana.

               Joel was bondsman for his sister, Abigail's marriage. According to Tucker's History of Randolph County, Indiana Joel Lock enlisted in the 109th Regiment, Company K-Minutemen. This regiment was formed solely for the purpose of expelling Morgan's Raiders from Indiana and Ohio. The regiment was mustered out after only five days. It was organized 12 July 1863, mustered out 17 July 1863[28].
 

          Joel was an early settler in Randolph County, a blacksmith and had the first smith shop[29].

            From Janeen Nichols a descendant of Joel:  from civil war enlistment papers William, Joel, Jr., Levi and Edmund are all at least 6 feet tall, dark haired, (with the exception of William who was shown as having gray hair at the age of 30) and blue eyes. Joel, Sr. also had blue eyes.

            Joel sold to Zachariah Key the NW Qtr NE Qtr Sec 29, Twp 21, Rng 14, 40 acres on 30 Apr 1841. Joel bought Lot 4 in Spartanburg from Borden H. Bradbury 16 Nov 1843 and sold Lot 4  to Elijah Platte on 10 Nov 1845. Joel had an indenture with William Powell (I assume William was bound to Joel, but am not sure)[30].

            He is on the 1830 US Census for Guilford County, North Carolina. The 1840 US Census for Drake County, Ohio shows Joel with 1m under 5, 2m 5-10, 2m 10-15, 2m 15-20 and himself 40-50, 1f 10-15. So he already had 8 sons and 1 daughter by 1840 and then at least 3 more sons by 1850. I wonder what happened to all these children, they may not be all his children.

            The 1850 US Census Randolph County, Indiana[31] shows Joel Locke age 53 born North Carolina, blacksmith; Sarah Locke age 35 born Ohio; and Andrew age 5 born Ind. There are two Joel's listed in the 1850 US census index for Indiana, the other one, probably his son is listed on page 101, both in Wayne Township.  The 1860 census[32], shows Joel age 60, Sarah age 46, George W. age 19 and Andrew age 16 living in Franklin Township, Grant County, Indiana. By 1870 they were in Pleasant Township, Steuben County, Indiana. In 1880 they were in Jackson Township, Steuben County.

They had the following children:

+        21 M i.   William F. LOCK was born on 1 Sep 1820 and died on 15 Feb 1893.

+        22 M  ii.   Samuel F. LOCK was born about 1822 and died in 1880.

             23 M iii.   Edmund LOCK was born[33] about 1823 probably in Guilford County, North Carolina. He died on 31 Jul 1880 in Steuben County, Indiana and was buried in Lake Cage Cemetery, Steuben County. Edmund married Rebecca Ann Davis (1823-1880) 24 Apr 1842 and they had Abigail b.c1846 and Jesse b.c1847. He married 2nd Mary J. Crosby (1836-1864) and had Sara b.c1859 and Gainum b.c1863. He married 3rd Marcy (Mercy) Bell b.1839[34]. Edmund lived in Harrison Township, Paulding County, Ohio in 1860 and Pleasant Township, Steuben County, Indiana in 1880.

                             Edmund served in the 14th Ohio Infantry, Company G as the company's blacksmith during the Civil War. He was 5' 10" and had gray eyes and gray hair. (this doesn’t match the other statement from Mrs. Nichols.)

+        24 M   iv.   Alvin/Alvis LOCK was born about 1824 and died in 1890.

             25 F v.   female LOCK was born about 1826 probably in Guilford County, North Carolina.

             26 M   vi.   Joel LOCK was born about 1832 in Ohio. He died on 28 Dec 1862 at Chickasaw Bluff, Mississippi while serving in the Civil War. He was in the 69th Indiana Infantry, Company F. Joel married 1st Dorothy Oliver 29 Apr 1857, Gentry County, Missouri and they had Mary Jane b.1858; 2nd Elizabeth Murphey (1837-1932) and they had Alphretta b.1861, who married Henry Stump[35]. He was a blacksmith. In 1850 he was living with the Barnhill Polly family.

             27 M   vii.   Levi LOCK was born[36] about 1836 in Ohio. He died on 21 Mar 1862 in Woodsonville, Kentucky. Levi married Mary [-?-] and they had William b.c1857 and George b.c1859[37]. He lived in Somers Township, Preble County, Ohio in 1850, and Greenfield Center Township, Hancock County, Indiana in 1860. He was a blacksmith.

                             He served with the Indiana 51st Infantry, Company F as the ambulance teamster during the Civil War. He was 6 feet tall and had brown hair and blue eyes.

             28 M   viii.   Lewis LOCK was born about 1838 in Indiana. He died on 17 Jan 1862 of pneumonia in Louisville, Kentucky. Lewis was living in Greensfork Township, Randolph County, Indiana with the William Cooper family in 1850. He was a farmer. Lewis served with the Indiana 57th Infantry, Company F during the Civil War. He was 5' 10" tall, dark complected and had dark hair and blue eyes.

 

Joel and Sarah had the following children:

             29 M   ix.   George H?. LOCK was born[38] about 1840 in Ohio.

             30 M   x.   Andrew J. LOCK was born in Oct 1842.

+        31 M   xi.   John LOCK was born[39] about 1843 in Indiana.

   

         14. William M. LOCK (Hezekiah, William) was born[40].in 1805 in Granville County, North Carolina. He died between 1881 and 1884 in Randolph County, Indiana. William married 1st Sarah MIDDLETON 19 Jan 1826, she must have died shortly after the marriage[41]. He married 2nd Hannah MIDDLETON on 10 Feb 1827 in Guilford County, North Carolina. Hannah was born about 1808 in North Carolina. Hannah and Sarah were the daughters of Samuel H. Middleton b.1794, Virginia, who was the son of Benedict Middleton. The family moved to North Carolina in 1798. The Middleton family later moved to Randolph County, Indiana and was closely aligned with the Locks. Hannah had brothers named Samuel H., Thomas, sisters Anna and Elsey. Luzena, Hannah's niece, married George W. Lock. There is a nice biography about the Middleton family in the Randolph County, Indiana History[42]. According to this biography. William married 1st Wealthy (Sarah W.) Middleton in 1827 and afterward Sarah (Hannah) Middleton, sisters of Thomas and Samuel Middleton and they had two children. He was a carpenter, wagon-maker and farmer. Many farmers had a trade besides farming. He was also an Episcopal Methodist for over 47 years since 1834 and was a church trustee since 1837[43]. In his 1850 houshold was Minerva age 19. On page 150A.is James W. (William’s son #32) age 21 born in Indiana and Mary A. Locke age 16 also born in Indiana.

            The 1830 Census for Guilford County[44], shows William with 1m under 5, 1m 20-30 and 1f 20-30.

            The 1840 US Census for Randolph County, Indiana shows William Lock 1m 10-15, 1m 30-40, 1f 5-10 and 1f 30-40[45].

           In 1860 William was a wagon maker[46]. In 1870 he was a farmer and they had a female named May, probably Mary, age 12, their granddaughter, living with them[47]. In 1880 William, age 75 and Hannah age 72 both born in North Carolina, as were their parents, were living in Spartanburg, Greensfork Township. He was a farmer[48].

            William bought government land in March of 1837, August of 1838 and 1839 at the Indianapolis land office. He bought Lot 7 in Spartanburg, Randolph County, Indiana on 21 Sep 1839 and sold lot 7 in Spartanburg on 30 Sep 1839, I wonder if these dates are right or are they the registration dates. William sold Sec. 14, Twp 18, Range 12 in 1839 and sold land in Spartanburg in 1841. He sold the East 1/2 SW Qtr Sec. 15/21, Twp 19, Range 14, 10 to John Hinshaw 24 Jun 1845[49].

            William was living in Spartanburg in 1881 when the History of Randolph County, by Ebenezer Tucker was published[50]. Under the section of Greensfork Township William Locke is 75 and Hannah is 72 years old. William returned to Randolph County in 1828 and lived on the Comer's place, but went back to North Carolina. He came to Spartanburg between 1831 and 1836. He lived west of Granger Hall nine years; Bartonia, 15 years; Spartanburg, 3 years. He moved to Union City, Ohio in the fall of 1880 and resided for a time where he united with the Methodist Episcopal Church of Union City. However he returned to Randolph County in 1881, first to Arba then to Spartanburg. William was esteemed and active in good works. This may be where the name Wesley came from. John Wesley was the founder of the Methodist church.

William and Hannah had the following children:

+        32 M i.   James Wesley LOCK was born in Feb 1829 and died between 1900 and 1910.

             33 F ii.   Minerva LOCK was born about 1831 in Indiana. She married William Jackson 25 Mar 1852[51]. They had no issue.

   

15. Abigail LOCK (Hezekiah, William) was born about 1806 in North Carolina. She died before 3 Oct 1839 probably in Randolph County, Indiana. Abigal married[52] Isaac CALHOUN on 8 Nov 1826 in Guilford County, North Carolina. He was born about 1805. Isaac was probably the son of James Calhoun and Sarah [-?-]. James Calhoun died in Guilford County, North Carolina in 1810. His will[53] mentions William, John, James, and Isaac Calhoun, Mary Cruchfield and Molly (?) Calhoon, wife Sarah[54].

            Isaac and Abigal had the following children:

             34 F  i.   Julia Ann CALHOUN was born about 1832. On 3 Oct 1839, Randolph County, Indiana[55], Geo. Lock had a 7 year old girl indentured to him for 11 years until she was 18 to teach the art of housewifery. Her name was Julia Ann Calhoon daughter of Isaac and Abegail (sic) Calhoon. At the end of her term, Geo. Lock was to give her one good bed and bedding and one flax wheel. George Lock signed with his mark. I believe Abigail must have been George’s sister. The bondsman for her marriage was Joel Lock, another brother. Julia could have been born in North Carolina or Indiana or someplace in between.

 

 

         17. Elizabeth LOCK (Hezekiah, William) was born[56].about 1815 in Guilford County, North Carolina. She died about Aug 1879 in Grant County, Indiana. Elizabeth married[57].Jeremiah LLOYD, son of John LLOYD and Ailsy HARRISON, on 1 Dec 1833 in Randolph County, Indiana. Jeremiah was born 1 Sep 1810 in Guilford County. He died in 1870 in Grant County.

            In Elizabeth's will she left her grandson Henry S. Lloyd, son of William H., the east half of the west half of the NE quarter of the SW quarter of section 28, township 24, north range 7 containing ten? acres.  Her will was probated 11 Aug 1879 by son Jeremiah Lloyd and John G. King.  She signed her own name. (SEE LLOYD FAMILY)

Jeremiah and Elizabeth had the following children:

+        35 M i.   Thomas LLOYD was born on 1 Mar 1834 in Randolph County, Indiana and died on 18 Sep 1898.

+        36 M ii.   William H. LLOYD was born on 14 Mar 1835 in Randolph County, Indiana and died on 9 Nov 1908.

             37 F iii.   Sarah A. LLOYD was born[58] on 11 Nov 1837 in Randolph County, Indiana.  She may have married Martin V. Potter 11 Sep 1858, Grant County, Indiana[59]. The Sarah's may be mixed up, there were so many of them.

+        38 M   iv.   Ellis Samuel LLOYD was born about 1840 in Randolph County, Indiana. He married Ruth Slagel about 1863.

             39 F v.   Mary Jane LLOYD was born[60] about 1843 in Randolph County, Indiana.

             40 F vi.   Esley LLOYD was born[61] about 1845 in Randolph County, Indiana. I believe Esley was called Etta and her name was probably Elsey/Alsey after her grandmother. She married Reuben Ratliff (b.6 Mar 1854) 23 Nov 1878, Grant County, Indiana[62]. Reuben was the son of Cornelius Ratliff and Lydia Ann Macy. He was the brother of Abigail who married Jeremiah Lloyd (#41), Etta's brother. Etta and Reuben did not have any children. They raised her brother William's son, Henry after his mother died.

+        41 M   vii.   Jeremiah F. LLOYD was born on 30 Jun 1851 in Grant County, Indiana and died on 21 Aug 1887. He married Abigail Ratliff daughter of Cornelius Ratliff and Lydia Ann Macy.

     

         18. George Wesley LOCK (Hezekiah, William) was born on 21 Nov 1816 in Guilford County, North Carolina. He died on 6 Dec 1854 in Greensfork Township, Randolph County, Indiana and was buried in Arba Cemetery, Randolph County. George married Luzena MIDDLETON on 24 Oct 1832 at Arba MM, Wayne County, Indiana.
