In Response To: Re: LOCKLAYER ()

I am trying to find information on the Locklayers who were living in Anson County, NC in 1850. Jane Locklayer, age 10,(Mulatto) is found living in the household of my ggg grandfather, William H. Cox, in the 1850 census report. Rebecca Locklayer, age 46,(Mulatto)and Dixon Locklayer (Mullato) are found living in next household consisting of the Edmund Robinson family. Although this census does not state that Mary Cox (wife of William H. Cox) was Native American or Black or Mulatto, I beleive there is a possibility that Rebecca amd Mary were sisters and that Rebecca was possibly the mother to Martha Robinson (Edmund's wife) who was 24 years old in the 1850 cenusus report. I was told that my gg grandmother, Mary Cox Nash, (daughter of William and Mary) was half Cherokee. This is my only tidbit of information that "might" link Mary to the Locklayer family. I do not have any further information on Rebecca, except that I believe that this is the same Rebecca, age 68, that is found in the 1870 census for Anson County living in the household of Edmund Robinson, only her last name appears as "Cox" in this census. I have found no other Locklears in Anson County; however, there were several Locklears living in nearby Robeson County, NC. Would appreciate any information regarding a possible connection between the Locklear and the William Cox family. Thanks
