Margaret Locket

Descendants of LOCKET'S in Worth and Terrell Counties

I am looking for the Ancestors/Descendants of MARGARET LOCKET who is my GREAT-GREAT GRANDMOTHER according to the Death Certificate of my Great Grandfather Allen H. Shepard.

Two of her siblings maybe WILLIE LOCKET and EDWARD LOCKET who lived on Livingston close to the ALLEN H. SHEPARD'S of 203 Livingston.

On the obituary of my Aunt LILLIE SHEPARD PAGE, HIRAM LOCKET of Tampa, FL was listed as one of her surviving nephews. I believe Hiram's parents were WILLIE and EMMA STATEM (NC) LOCKET. He may have had a brother name TIMOTHY.

My mother RUBYE WILLIAMS HAMPTON remembers the family of EDWARD AND JANE LOCKET on Livingston as being related. (Mildred, Mattie, I.D., Lela Bell, Maude, Sarah and Louie. She remembers additional surnames of Vickers, Evans and Davis.)

These SHEPARD'S below lead back to LOCKET'S in Worth and Terrell Counties.


MARGARET LOCKET was born 1857 in South Carolina. I do not know when or where she died. I am assuming she died in Terrell County. She married ALLEN SHEPARD. I am assuming of Terrell County; still looking for documentation as proof on both my Great-Great Grandparents.
