From: <Jroots -at- aol.com> Subject: Follow Up on Mary Whitney LOCKE: LOCKE-WHITNEY Connection Date: Sun, 16 Aug 1998 12:11:49 EDT Hi all and Barbara, the Mary Whitney LOCKE you found was one of "my" LOCKEs. She was the daughter of Ayers LOCKE, a Revolutionary War Veteran, and Lydia BLODGETT. He was the son of Joseph LOCKE and Mary AYERS. His sisters were Persis LOCKE, who married Stephen WHITNEY, son of Josiah WHITNEY and Sarah FARR; Bernice LOCKE, who married Moses WHITNEY, son of Samuel WHITNEY and Phoebe HARRINGTON; and Anna LOCKE, who married Guilford LOCKE, son of Samuel and Phoebe. I have collected quite a lot on the descendants of Ayers and Lydia BLODGETT LOCKE (most of which has not been published). In addition I have a fair amount on the WHITNEY lines extending from the above relationships and would share it gladly. Also, please note that many of the authors of genealogies published in the 19th century seemed to be over zealous in trying to link almost any LOCKE line to John LOCKE, the Philosopher. I believe that he never married and never had any children at all. A brief review of John LOCKE's life is found on Kingsley LOCKE's homepage at: <a href="http://www.net1plus.com/users/locke/locke-5.htm">http://www.net1plus.com/users/locke/locke-5.htm</a> I would love to learn more about Mary Whitney LOCKE and thank you for spotting it in the Progressive Men of Iowa.
