|Birth: ||Oct. 9, 1843|
Citizen of the Republic of Texas
Alfred M Locklin, born in Walton Co., GA - Son of William Lawson Locklin Sr and Nancy Mercer.
Brother of Louisa E, Alteman Livingston, Frances Ann, Samuel G, Jesse Daniel, Celia Emaline Mae, Elisabeth A, Sarah Catherine "Kate", Mary "Amanda", James Zachoriah "Jim", Martha Ann, Infant Daughter, William Lawson "Tamp" Jr, Thomas Jefferson "Bunk", B A and Nancy Victoria Locklin.
Alfred married, before 1870, Matilda (Maiden Unknown) Locklin.
Father of an adopted child, Minnie Locklin.
Grandson of Samuel Locklin & Celia Zachry and William Mercer & Isabel Malloy.
I have not been able to locate death or burial information for Alfred. The last record I have found for him is the 1880 Milam Co., TX Census. It is assumed, based on the following information, that Alfred died shortly after the 1880 census and before 26 Nov 1882 when Matilda married James M Alexander. Again, an assumption, that Alfred was likely buried here at the family cemetery or at the Thorndale City Cemetery (unmarked) where Matilda was buried in 1925 beside her 2nd husband.
An interesting note: Alfred has an uncle, Alfred M Locklin, born about 1826 in GA. I have been unable to find death and burial records for him as well.
Update 3 Apr 2011: While searching Ancestry.com I found a listing for A M Lochlin (the uncle) in the California, Mortuary and Cemetery Records, 1801-1932, which shows A M Lochlin born in GA, died 19 Feb 1851, age abt 27 yrs. I believe this is Alfred M Locklin, son of Samuel Locklin and Celia Zachry. As mentioned above, the last record I had been able to locate for Alfred was the 1850 Walton Co., GA Census. It is possible that Alfred went to CA, after the 1850 census in search of some CA gold.
