|Jon Bellomy||Lockwood Connection.|
Hi, cousin Sharon.
Through a bit of perfunctory research, I have found my connection to the Lockwood family through my father's great grandmother's lineage. I will be trying to connect the dots in order to fine-tune our exact relationship (as well as that of many, many other cousins). The double cousin, once, twice, thrice removed, etc., kind of thing makes fleshing out roots, branches and twigs so very interesting. Some of our common ancestors have amazing stories written about them. The Virginia/West Virginia/Kentucky/Ohio/ Tennessee/Maryland connections alone - in my Dad's Great Grandmother's line - could keep me reading (with my jaw agape) for a year. One historical account leads to so many related ones - it's literally an exponential curve kind of data-gathering process.
Happy Hunting, cuz

People often don't understand why folk like you and I are so passionate about keeping family history alive. I'm the only one in my immediate family who seems interested - at least enough to expend any great effort. Anyway, last night - acting on a hunch concerning traditional given names that were popping up in my Ritchie family line, I came up with an unexpected reward: I found that Agnes Ritchie - my GGGGGG Grandfather's daughter - was Great Grandmother to David Stern Crockett. I always wondered where that coonskin cap and powderhorn in the attic came from. Now I know. ;) Have a great Sunday.

Good evening, Cousin.
Thanks so much for the timely reply.
I appreciate that you will alert me of any data that you discover. I will certainly do the same. :) Yes, it's certainly good to meet family. It's been a long time since I have seen members of my Dad's side of the family that reside in the tri-state area. Sadly, many are no longer around to catch up with; and I have never met any of my White family relations. Perhaps some day. I'm hoping that I can avail myself of the LDS database to find David's ancestors. If so, you will be the first to know.

Hi, Cousin Sharon;
David White is my GGGGG Grandfather, also - through my paternal G Grandmother's father's lineage. Her name was Clarinda White. Her Mother was Julia Ann Clay. Her father was John White. Her Husband (my G Grandfather), was Thomas Beuterri Bellomy (descended of John Bellomy I, of Goochland County, Virginia). G Grandmother Clarinda descends from Captain John Thomas Claye VI, through whom Henry Clay (the Great Pacificator), the Kentucky Legislator arose. "Black David" White was certainly a man among men, and obviously an extraordinary long-distance rifleman and American Patriot. I was thrilled to find that I shared his blood. I want to find everything out that I can about this great man. I hope to be able to follow his bloodline back to his Old-Country roots. If you have information concerning his parentage, I would be so thankful if you could forward me that information.

Oh okay! Smh too many people lol. Wow that is really awesome!I am so glad your Mom took the time to do all that work. Really wish more people close to me would have thought or wanted to do the same. Yes, I am in Ohio! I would love the info, could you email it to me when you get a chance? Have a safe journey home and if you get the chance to call him I'm sure he would enjoy hearing from you!

Dear Sharon, Yes, I'm glad I ran into you! It's pretty neat connecting with family. From what I've gathered your my grandpa Marvin's sister? That would make you my great aunt :), Neil is my father. Umm I have not even thought about signing up with a lineage society, that's a great idea! I'm figuring out things as I go along. I appreciate all the help I can get and as you can probably tell I need it lol. Wow you've traced our Dawkins line back to 1750-1500's that's awesome!! Trying to find people is harder work then I though so I admire your accomplishments with this endeavor. I would love to have a copy of that information in the future. Yes Marvin and Trudy are in the Akron area. They will be here for a couple months and are staying with Gail, her phone number is (330)848-2860 :). Do you know if the Dawkins family has a annual family reunion and where? Thanks

Hi! Why yes Marvin is my grandpa :). I am so sorry for your loss!! Yes him and my grandma are still residing in Florida. They are do to arrive into town later this evening. They usually try to stay awhile with their daughter Gail when they visit. I'm sure he would love to hear from you and I would be happy to give you the telephone number if your interested and don't already have it? If you've given my grandpa information I am sure I will come across it, some day. Just probably not as soon as I'd like to lol.
