My name is Retia. I was Born 7/26/1940 and raised in Orlando, Florida. Now live in northeast Texas. I am a 9th generation Florida Cracker. Love to drive and investigate. I am always looking for my Family members as there are some that I can't find yet. Most would be in or around Central Florida. My Mother and many other relatives are at Lock Cemetery in Orange County FL, just a mile or so from where I was raised. The names I am looking for are: John Calvin Locke (Titusville, FL) DOB: 1908 or 1909, Curtis H Locke DOB:03/18/1914 and Coey V Locke DOB:07/24/1916, also Lock, Locke, Tyson (Tison), Stephens, Burkett, Flynt, Churchwell, Overman, Powell, and Willcox. My Stephens grandparents were recently found by a Find a Grave contributor at Palm Cemetery in Winter Park, my Aunt Eva Mae Cherry and her husband Uncle Evan Hood Cherry were found in Greenwood Cemetery in Orlando, and my Uncle Joel B Locke and Aunt Edna were recently found at Hillcrest Memorial Park in West Palm Beach FL by another contributor. All Contributors are very greatly appreciated. I am still looking for some of my aunts, uncles and cousins. I am still looking for my Uncle Coey Velpo Locke (Lock) of Ocoee FL and his wife Aunt Blanche, my Uncle John Calvin Locke (Lock) of Titusville FL, and his wife Aunt Eunice. A big thank you to everyone for all your help!!
