THE JOSIAH LOCKHART--MORRISON HOUSE NO 94
Location: On Route 259, a short distance southwest of its intersection with U.S. 50.
According to a marker in the stone chimney of this old log and frame house, it was built in 1847. It is at present the residence of James F. Morrison, son of James F. Morrison Sr. and grandson of Thomas E. Morrison. The widow of James Floyd Morrison, Mrs. Georgia Morrison lives in Winchester.
The house stands on a part of a large tract which was granted by Lord Fairfax to Joseph Wharton of the City of Philadelphia on December 1, 1772. It passed from Wharton to Peter Babb and then to his son Daniel Babb. In two separate conveyances this large tract was aquired by Josiah Lockhart. The part of the tract we are considering is described in the deeds as being in Frederick County on the waters of Back Creek and its drains on Capper Ridge.
Josiah Lockhart was a prominent figure in this part of Frederick County. According to Dr. Wayland, the Lockhart family settled early on Back Creek and at least two of the family, John and James, were soldiers in the Revolution and went on the George Rogers Clark expedition.
On July 10, 1875 F.W. Holliday, Special Commissioner in the suit of the Josiah Lockhart heirs, conveyed to James Cather the Lockhart farm of 193 1/2 acres on Capper Ridge. and on Dec 26, 1878 the Executors of James Cather conveyed to Thomas E. Morrison the same property, the deed confirming and agreement between James Cather and Morrison made before Cather's death. The Morrison family has owned the property since that date.
