842 Names So Far!

The 6 names for today will bring us to 848 new names learned this year. That leaves 1166 names still to learn this year, and we are starting to move through the year a bit more quickly, it seems. I'm still quite behind on researching the names and I've probably started to fall behind a bit in introducing them to you. I'll try to do better! (especially on researching the names) How many of the names with meanings or origin or some other information have you read or learned so far?

Acts Passed at a General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia ---- my 4th great-grandfather Josiah Lockhart made a part of the Northwestern Road Company

 

My 4th great-grandfather Josiah helped mark the dividing lines between Frederick County and Morgan County Virginia



 

contained in Acts of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, page 51.

William Lockhart

Last night I came across a website where someone put all the research they had found on William Lockhart and people they thought might be related to them. It looked like one researcher, Jacki Riffey, at that time was trying to make a connection between this William Lockhart and the Josiah Lockhart of Lancaster, PA. I doubt that is the relationship though. It seems more likely that they would be brothers. The researcher who had gathered all this information had William married to Joanna and so they seemed to think that this William was the William who married Joanna Train in Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia. However they also had him married to Joanna Wiley. Joanna Train was a widow when she married William Lockhart, so she could very well also be Joanna Wiley. I'm not sure about all the theories this researcher had on their website. It might be that the William Lockhart who died in Beaver, Pennsylvania is the same William Lockhart I've come across in Frederick County, Virginia. It might not.
