Looking for any connections to this family. Starting with William LOCK b.1772 d.1851 Mercer Co, PA. In 1850 census Wm is living with wife Elizabeth (might be a second wife), son Thomas & Thomas's wife Jane F. Both Wm & Jane pass in March 1851. Wm leaves all to son Thomas and instructions to care for Elizabeth. And these papers tell us that Wm was "formerly of Ohio". Thomas passes without a will in Sep 1853. Courts appoint his brother Benjamin LOCK to administer the estate. And continue care for Elizabeth. Elizabeth passes in 1856 at age 101. Benjamin then passes Dec 1863. No will. When Benj passes he has 11 children & owns 4 properties. His papers list siblings (7 total children of Wm.) Abigail 1810-1849 unmarried
