Re: What is known about Anne Lockwood, daughter? of ?Richard Lockwood of MD
There is still no actual proof found that Ann is the daughter of Richard of Maryland, but probable because of several factors that I won't go into here.
The main proof that Richard of Maryland is NOT the son of Joseph of Connecticut is because of the LWT of both Joseph and his f-i-l Robert Beachum was stated in my paper. As a genealogist, you need to evaluate the evidence found. If Richard was a son of Joseph, he would have been listed in the LWT of Robert- or Joseph's.Joseph's wife was the ONLY child of Robert Beachum and thus, her children were the only heirs of him at the time he wrote his LWT.Presumably, Richard was a minor at that time (I read copies of both wills).Plus, Donald Lines Jacobus researched extensively the lines in old Fairfield and no where is mentioned Richard. The difference between the work of Jacobus and the Lockwood book - no contest!It is a mystery to me how anyone can still claim that Richard is a son of Joseph after this evidence (read the foreword of the Lockwood book - how information was gathered).In other words,you can not claim that Richard is a son of Joseph and Miss Beachum, because there is no credible evidence found that it is so.That is how reliable genealogy works.
I have two Lockwood family lines - on my father's side and mother's.DNA results on my mother's side (from a male cousin in the line) show an exact match (37/37) to two other individuals in a proven line with the Fairfield bunch.My mother's Lockwood line (as far as research) is dead ended in NY shortly after the Rev War.
My father's line (of Richard of Maryland) matched 35 out of 37 markers to the CT line.Close, but not an exact match.From this, I believe that we share a common ancestor - but further back in England.
I would love to see a descendant of Abraham Lockwood of Rhode Island tested.
May seem trivial, however, can you find a Joseph or Isabelle in Richard of Maryland's line?First 3 gen?This family (as others) used same names over and over: Armwell, Samuel, Richard, John, Mary, etc.In my mind, Armwell, is the best clue to finding Richard's ancestry (or Mary's).
Anna, thank you for asking - gave me a chance to once again state my position!
