I am just starting to trace my husband's side of our family.His father is Jesse Lockard in Pulaski Co., KY.Jesse's parents were John Ray Lockard and Foxie Ann Burton.They had 10 children.
John's parents were William Mack Lockard and Lucinda Decker.William was from TX and Lucinda was from KY.
We think they met in KY and married and returned to TX and started their family with at least 7 kids:John Ray, James "Jim", Lula Tarter, Mary Elizabeth Burris, Laura Polston, Ida Jane Johnson, and Rena Catherine McGowan.
When John was 8 or 9 they took a wagon train back to KY.William's father came with them and reportedly died on the trip.He was buried in either Arkansas or Missouri.James left the train in Western KY and possibly went to TN?
If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it.
