Citizen of the Republic of Texas

William Lawson Locklin Sr - Son of Samuel Locklin and Celia Zachry.

Brother of Nancy Ann, James Zachry Sr, Samuel G, Celia E, Elizabeth Ann "Betsy" and Alfred H Locklin.

William married, 5 Oct 1926 in Columbia Co., GA, Nancy Mercer, a daughter of William Mercer and Isabel Malloy.

Father of Louisa E, Alteman Livingston, Frances Ann, Samuel G, Jesse Daniel, Celia Emaline Mae, Elisabeth A, Sarah Catherine "Kate", Mary "Amanda", James Zachoriah "Jim", Alfred M, Martha Ann, Infant Daughter, William Lawson "Tamp" Jr, Thomas Jefferson "Bunk", B A and Nancy Victoria Locklin.

Grandson of Mr & Mrs Samuel W Lachland and John R Zachry & Sarah Hay.
William's 2nd marriage to Elizabeth Emmeline Fulcher is based on an excerpt of Samuel Griffith Locklin's manuscript about the Locklin family and the History of Milam Co., TX. The excerpt reads, exactly as written:
grand father left georgia in 1844 but did not get here until 1845 and stoped near where uncle Peters fort was but did not stay at one place long at a time he first stoped on granmothers legue and then moved further up the river some six or seven miles and then moved on the Dan Robinson league then to old Freezout where he lived until after the civil war then he bought the dodd tract of land and lived the rest of his life while there "he lost his wife and after a few years he married Emeline Fulcher a daughter of john Fulcher who was a brother to mothers first husband james Fulcher."

Note: I have found no marriage record to date. But have found a marriage record for E Locklin to B Fuller, Sept. 5, 1876 in Bell Co., TX.

In Jan. 2000, Bobbie Duffey Dykes posted a query on the Milam Co., TX Ancestry board regarding an item that was in her Great Uncle's truck. It was a piece about a lady named Emmeline Fuller. There was a photo and the piece was written by Mrs. Ethel Locklin Boswell. The exact text read:

"Mrs. Emmeline Fuller, familiarly called Grandma Fuller, was born on the 28th of April, 1830, in a place called Redland, Tex. She has been married four times and was the mother of ten children, none of whom are living. She makes her home with her nephew in Granger.

She has been a member of the Christian Church for many years and in spite of her eighty-four years attended regularly until last year.

She has been active for one of her age, but is growing very feeble."

Bobbie's after-note reads: I have no idea which paper it appeared in, nor the date it appeared. Also, on a handwritten scrap of paper inside the J.H. FULCHER Bible, her name and birth date was listed.

While I, Sarah Locklin Taylor, have found no marriage record of Elizabeth Emmeline Fulcher/Anderson to William Lawson Locklin, I have found the marriage record for E Locklin to B Fuller, 5 Sept 1876 in Belton, Bell Co., TX. We do know that Elizabeth Emmeline Fulcher, daughter of John Fulcher and Mary Josephine Hayes, was 1st married to John H Anderson of NC or SC. They married about 1847. John H and Emmeline Anderson were enumerated in the following censuses: 1850 Milam Co., TX and 1860 Bell Co., TX. Emmeline Anderson was enumerated in the 1870 Bell Co., Census. Emmeline Fuller was enumerated in the 1880 Bell Co., TX Census. I have not located her in the 1900 censuses, but she was enumerated in the 1910 Williamson Co., TX Census. I have not found a death record or a TX Death Certificate for her, but the dates on the FindAGrave memorial for Mrs. E. E. Fuller of 1830 and March 27, 1917 appear to be accurate and the above is a logical and reasonable deduction.
