Re: Woodlocks of LaSalle Co, IL & Benton Co, IN
David Woodlock and Bridget Loughery were also my husbands
gg grandparents. Was sorry to get a phone call regarding uncle Clarence although he led a long life. We had not seen him in quite some time, he stayed with us in Texas a couple of times and came to Texas for his brother Jim's 80th birthday party at our house.
I have a book Historical and biographical history of Warren, Benton, Jasper and Newton counties, Indiana. The book is dated 1888. It has seen better days but then it's over 100 yrs old. There is an article on David Woodlock regarding his coming to America and a short bio regarding his early days in the U.S before moving to Indiana. An interesting fact was that his father Patrick (who died when David was 10) had traced the family back nearly 3 centuries to Danes, who settled in Ireland.
