    Walter,

    Hope I get this one right--guess it must be getting late. I keep goofing up on these. I DO have something on your Gr. grandfather, and he DOES fit into my line of the Wood "tree", so guess that makes us related too. Let's see if I can explain how I have your George listed in my Wood file.

    You're direct line would go like this:

    John Wood, Sr. (b. ca. 1734/40; d. 30 Jan 1799 Derry Twp, Mifflin Co, Pa.) m. ???????

    David Wood (b. 18 Aug 1764 Va.; d. 11 Dec 1846 Clermont Co, Ohio)
    m. Louisa Smith 15 Feb 1793 Frederick Co, Va.

    (Dr.) David Wood (b. 1815 Clermont Co, Oh.; d. 1846 Point Isabel, Clermont Co, Oh; buried in New Calvary Cem, Clermont Co, Oh.)
    m. Mary Day 26 May 1840 Clermont Co, Ohio

    George Absalom Wood (b. 5 Oct 1848/9; d. 30 May 1893 Pulaski Co, Ky)
    m. Lucy Ann Turner 15 Aug 1869 Clermont Co, Ohio

    Thus, your Gr-gr-gr grandfather, David Wood, was a brother to my Gr-gr-grgrandmother, Elizabeth (Wood) Manning.

    Now, let's see if I can answer some of the other "posers" in your letter
    about other members of this "confusion".

    The William and Catherine Barkley that George was living with in 1860 was his aunt and uncle, William and Catherine (Wood) Barkley. Catherine is (Dr.) David's sister and a daughter of David and Louisa (Smith) Wood. She married William Barkley 14 Aug 1831 in Clermont Co, Ohio. I don't know if he would have been living with them, or just happened to be visiting them at the time of the census. His father had died when he was 2-3 years old, so either is possible. The Mary Page who was living near by with children, Almira and Sarah G. (or C. ?) Wood was actually George's mother. His mother's maiden name was Mary Day and she was the daughter of Joseph Day and Debora Lambert.

    After Mary's first husband, (Dr.) David Wood, died, she married (2) Lorenzo Dow Page on 3 Apr 1856 and they had a daughter, Amanda J. Page. The girls, Almira and Sarah Wood, were your George's full sisters--children of Dr. David and Mary (Day) Wood. I'm not sure who the elderly Mary Barkley was , unless it could have been William's mother, but don't know why she would have been living with Mary and not her own son??

    The Louisa Wood who was living with Wm. and Catherine Barkley in 1850 would have been Catherine's mother, Louisa (Smith) Wood. I'm not sure exactly who the Jane Wood is that was living near the Barkleys.

    Just to confuse things more, your George Absalom Wood's mother, Mary (Day) Wood Page evidently buried her second husband also, as I have her as marrying for a third time 21 Jan 1866 to Henry Walker.

    Here's the children I list for (Dr.) David Wood and Mary Day:

    (1) Hercilia Wood--b. 8 Oct 1842 m. 29 Dec 1859 in Clermont Co, Oh. To Thomas L.(or M.) Padgett.

    (2) Almira/Almina/Elmina G. Wood--b. 4 Jul 1844 d. 1886 Clermont Co, Oh (buried New Calvary Cem, Clermont Co, Ohio)
    m. 20 Jun 1861 Clermont Co, Oh. to Thomas J. Ashley

    (3) George Absalom Wood--b. 5 Oct 1848/9 d. 30 May 1893 Pulaski Co, Ky.
    m. 15 Aug 1869 Clermont Co, Oh. to Lucy Ann Turner

    (4) Sarah C. Wood--b. 5 Jan 1852
    m. Leonard B. Dixon

    (5) Marcellus Augustus Wood--b. 10 May 1846
    m. 18 Dec 1874 Clermont Co, Oh. to Ada H. Richards

    Here are the children I have for David Wood and Louisa Smith:

    (1) Elizabeth Wood--b. 5 Apr 1793 (maybe 1794, as they were m. in 1793 ?) d. 11 Mar 1817 (bur. Private Wood Cem, Clermont Co, Oh)
    m. Robert Badgley

    (2) Mary Wood--b. 20 apr 1795 d. 22 Apr 1811 (bur. Private Wood Cem,
    Clermont Co, Oh)

    (3) Brazil G. Wood--d. at Vicksburg, Mississippi in Civil War

    (4) John Smith Wood--b. ca. 1799
    m. 11 Oct 1819 Clermont Co, Oh. to Elizabeth Camerer

    (5) Martha Wood--b. 24 Oct 1802 d. 22 Dec 1807 (bur. Private Wood Cem, Clermont Co, Oh)

    (6) Margaret Wood--b. 1803
    m. 2 Oct 1891 Clermont co, Oh. to (Rev.) Joseph Dole

    (7) George Wood--b. ca. 1805

    (8) Joseph Wood--b. 21 Mar 1807 Clermont Co, Oh d. 4 Nov 1878 Washington Twp, Clermont Co, Oh (bur. Private Wood Cem, Clermont co, Oh)
    m. 6 Aug 1829 Clermont Co, Oh. to Margaret Bennett

    (9) Catherine Wood--m. 14 Aug 1831 Clermont Co, Oh. to William Barkley

    (10) Absalom Wood--b. 21 Jun 1811 Clermont Co, Oh d. 25 Dec 1891 Tate Twp, Clermont Co, Oh (bur. Bethel/ Tate Twp. Cem, Clermont co, Oh)
    m. 8 Dec 1836 Clermont Co, Oh. to Phoebe McGohan

    (11) Nancy Wood--b. 10 Apr 1813/4 (twin) d. 12 Jan 1814/5 (bur. Private Wood Cem, Clermont Co, Oh)

    (12) Female Wood--b. 10 apr 1813/4 (twin) d. prob. at birth (bur. Private Wood Cem, Clermont Co, Oh)

    (13) Alfred Wood--d. Washington Twp, Clermont co, Oh.

    (14) Sarah Wood--b. ca. 1819
    m. 10 Oct 1822 Clermont Co, Oh. to James Buchanan

    (15) (Dr.) David Wood--b. 1815 Clermont co, Oh d. 1846 Point Isabel, Clermont Co, Oh (bur. New Calvary Cem, Clermont Co, Oh)
    m. 26 May 1840 Clermont co, Oh to Mary Day

    Hope this helps you some. Anything you can send me on your line of this Wood family or any other I'd really appreciate.

    Phyllis.

    Subject: Re: Locke Family

    Hi Walter,

    I'm glad you did find me. I talked to my sister tonight (Mahala Anne
    Killoran) and she was excited too.
    I've only been dabbling in genealogy so I don't have alot to report.
    Fortunately Jerry did the Lockes
    so that's a good part of it.

    I can't do all the fancy layout with generations listed, but from a more "family tradition" perspective here is what I know.

    Edwin Adelbert Locke was my great grand father (and Leslie's). He had kind of a tragic life. We were fortunate to have his daughters in our household when we were children so we learned alot of family folklore.
    E. A. Locke (aka "Sweetie") was an author, playright, musician and composer. (Anything I relate here came from the Aunts, as best I remember it. The cold facts are listed in Jerry's paperwork, at least most of them.)

    Sweetie had a brother Charlie and they lived in Cataraugus county New York with their mother, Mahala Fish, and their father. Their dad was a traveling circuit magistrate. I don't know if he had a law degree or if this was an elected position. Sweetie would go with him on the road sometimes and he came to know "the other woman", whose name I don't remember - His father had a "mistress" who put them up when they went in her area. Mahala had pretty much turned to her life as a "seer" and had developed a pretty good following as the facilitator in seances. Sweetie's father died so Sweetie and his brother lived with their mother. At some point she moved to Cleveland and left Charlie in the care of relatives. Sweetie came with her and got a job as a cabin boy on boats that lugged iron ore in Lake Erie. He was a survivor of the shipwreck of the Cataract. Then he went off in the Union Army at age 16. He was too young to enlist but he was 6' 4" and strong so they took him (he lied about his age to sign the papers). He was in the 64th Ohio (I think that's what it was called.). They headed south in the war and guarded bridges. Then he was assigned to escort a young guy with small pox home from the war. They got back to Ohio and it turned out the guy only had chicken pox. Sweetie returned to his group down south but the war ended right after that. When he came back to Cleveland, his mother had sold all of their stuff and moved to Boston (better seance clientele).

    He returned to upstate New York and married. He supported his family as a piano tuner and gave lessons. He had perfect pitch and could play instruments by ear. He had a son and a daughter. Then the daughter caught the flu (or some other epidemic disease) and died. His wife cared for her, caught it and died too. Sweetie and his son "Allie" moved to Boston to be near his mother. He remarried - our great grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Kennedy, and had six kids. His first child by Mary was not listed by Jerry Harrison. He was Frankie.
    He died when he was three and Aunt Evelyn was two. They were on vacation at Block Island and Frankie got a fever and died in the night. The doctor tried to save him but he couldn't. As a modern parent I can't imagine how that must have been. Aunt Evelyn said her mother ran into town wearing only her nightdress and rousted the doctor from his sleep, but Frankie could not be saved. That was about 1879 so wearing a night dress into town must have been a big deal then.

    Anyway, the second marriage produced Frankie, Evelyn, Russ, Marion, Ed and Helen. Leslie' s grandfather was Uncle Ed and my grandmother was Helen. Frankie died, Uncle Russ married but had no children, Aunts Evelyn and Marion never married. So Uncle Ed and my grandmother produced the next generation.

    E. A. Locke III, aka Ted Locke, was Ed's son. His mother was Alice Heppelthwaite (sp?). Uncle Ed was a wonderful artist and was employed by the Boston Globe, doing the sketches of the weekly ads in the paper (before they photographed them). He had a great sense of humor (this is all coming from the Aunts) and was quiet but very well liked. (When Maxwell House came out with the slogan "good to the last drop", he sent them a cable and asked them what was wrong with the last drop.) Aunt Alice suffered from depression, which was not taken seriously in those days. She eventually committed suicide.

    Aunt Evelyn was always worried that Ted might have it too and it caused her great stress not to hear from him. She was worried that he would take the same path.

    Ted was a great cartoonist and we used to have alot of his letters and sketches from World War II and other times.

    Margo brought her kids to visit Aunt Evelyn once and she really wanted all that stuff for her kids so it was packed up and sent to her. When she wrote to say that she and Ted were divorcing Aunt Evelyn was very upset. She had hoped that the materials would be saved for Ted's kids. (I hope that they got them).

    My mother and my Uncle Tom were the children of Helen Ouida Locke. For some reason, Sweetie liked the name Ouida. He named our cottage at Crystal Lake in Enfield NH, "Ouida Villa" and he wanted Helen to have Ouida in her name. Helen was born and the cottage was built in 1888.
    My Uncle Tom is Thomas Edwin West. He is still living in Plymouth Mass, near his daughter Merrie. His wife, my aunt Cecile, died last summer and we all gathered for the funeral. I hadn't seen some of them for years so it was great, in a way. My mother was Dorothy Marion West. She died in Dec. 2002.

    In 1972 Ted wrote to my mother and asked her to come get him in Georgia and bring him back to Mass. I was a senior in High School and offered to drive down to Columbus and get him. (As a 17 year old this seemed like a terrific road trip and excuse to skip school.) My parents absolutely refused. They were both working and couldn't go. They offered to help pay for a flight, but Ted didn't respond. After that, we never heard from him again.. Over the years my mother really regretted not arranging for him to come north and she wondered what was going on. Aunt Evelyn died in 1979. She was so fond of Ted and had always hoped that they could get together again. (I certainly hope they are all together now).

    Anyway, please pass this on to Kenneth and Leslie and give them my contact info. I'd love to hear from them.

    Mary Killoran.
