Descendant of Jeremiah Lochry
Checking in with you. Jeremiah Lochry was a 7th great-grandfather of mine. My direct line is through his son, William. Would like to exchange information with you and any of the other descendants that have written to you.

Jeremiah Lochry
I'm just starting to research geneology, and found out hat Jeremiah was my great (6 times), grandfather. His son William is my direct lineage. Reading about his son Archibald, and the sacrifices that he and the other folks made is a real eye-opener.
Thank you to all for providing this very useful information.

Lockery Grave
Jeremiah Lockery is my ancestor too. I am concerned about the condition of his grave. After contacting the neighboring church, I've found out how much a new small marker would cost. I am looking for people that would be willing to contribute to this project. As the American founder of a family his marker should be better than just a little pile of rocks! You may contact me through my website at annfahl.com

The father of the family in America, came from Derry County, Ireland before 1740. Tradition says he came with five sons and settled in the extreme confines of Cumberland County, Pa in Lack Twp, afterwards LurganTownship, taking up land under the Maryland Grant. His wife's name is thought to be Mary Murphee.
A Jeremiah Lochery, who died on December 4, 1749, is recorded in the official burial record of the Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church ashaving been buried in plot E-37 of the church cemetery.
A visit to the grave site reveals there is a headstone made from brownstone with an English crown at the top of the stone. The inscription on the stone appears to have been inscribed in Old English and etched, not chiseled. Tracings were attempted in an effort to ascertain more information but weather has taken it toll and the tracings did not provide any usable information. Mr. Lochry appears to be the second person buried in the cemetery.
This information was received from Denise & Charlie Lockwood of the Lower Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church on Friday September 25, 1998 and sent to Rebecca Loughry Lucas.

Email from Cindy Wiles, address: cdave@mountain.net. dated 30 Jan 2002 Jermiah Loughry was born in the early 1700's in morthern Ireland. He married Mary Murphy (Murphee) They emigrated to the United States on a ship by the name of Antelope. The Capt. was James Atkinson, to the port of Philidelphia,Pa. They took up settlement on land under the Maryland Grant. Their children were Rebecca, William, Jeremiah,Margaret,Archibald,John, James. John was bon in 1737 in York Count, Pa. In 1760 it listed him as a weaver. He was in the military in 1783 and served with the Rangers of the Frontier. In 1776 he was a private in the 15th Pen.Colonial lines. He died about 1810 and is buried in Randolph County Pa. He was married in 1791 by the Rev. Richard Swift. His chidren include Patrick, Margaret, William, Sarah, and Aarron. For some reason cannot come up with his wife's name yet. I think it is because of the so many different spelling of the Loughry name. Jermiah was Lockery. Changed when came to America. It has been spelled Loughrie which is my family. Also spelled Laughrey. When John's two daughters got married they listed their father as John Lockrea. I am sure that maybe not being able to read English might have had something. Hope this helps. Have alot more info. if need. If you find out his wife name let me know. We are a direct descent of him. Thanks. Cindy
