Part of the Lockhart Name Study

This study is in it's infancy, so please be patient. I am trying to create a study which will set each person's profile into a specific area in the world, to assist with research in locating other relations so the following applies to this upper level category:

NOTE: If you are Category "Challenged" (as I sometimes am LOL) , either shoot ME a note (be sure to include the profile ID), and I'll set it up. If the category comes in "RED" that means that location has not been created yet. It is also very important to be consistent with punctuation and spelling and even spacing.

Three forms of identification of a person's profile are used:


An upper-level category for anything related to the Lockharts

This is a high level category. Please do not add individual profiles. Add profiles to the narrowest category possible. See How to Categorize.

For example: If a person was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland, and died in Frederick County, Virginia, the categories would not be the Lockhart Family but rather:

1.Lanarkshire, Scotland, Lockhart Name Study with the linking categories within the edit box:

a. Scotland, Lockhart Name Study
b. Lanarkshire, Scotland, Name Studies with the linking categories within the edit box:
A. Lanarkshire, Scotland
B. Scotland, Name Studies


2. Frederick County, Virginia, Lockhart Name Study with the linking categories within the edit box:

a. Virginia, Lockhart Name Study with the linking categories:
A. Virginia, Name Studies
B. United States, Lockhart Name Study
b. Frederick County, Virginia, Name Studies
A. Frederick County, Virginia
B. Virginia, Name Studies

I have decided to add this higher level category so that one can search via the state in case the county is unknown. Often times, via census records, we know the state but not the actual county of birth. This is ongoing (I have a couple of thousand profiles to add this too...X-7424 14:08, 18 July 2015 (EDT)

See: Senator Samuel Lockhart for an example of multiple locations and follow the category links to see the correct formatting.

Before creating a location, do a category search to determine if the category has already been created. See: Category:Regions to locate established categories.


Adding Project Template

If you would like, you may add a project template to each profile included in your study. This will help raise awareness of your study & may increase collaboration. The code is:

{{One Name Study
| name = Lockhart
| category = " City/County, State/Colony, Lockhart Name Study

Insert the location as specific as possible then follow the category instructions above to link the new category to the upper level categories. This template will place ONE category...if there are others, then you will need to set them up manually using the above instructions...

If you need assistance with this process, please contact Nae X


1.Add the template to a Lockhart profile ONLY those whose last name at birth was Lockhart (so no wives who became a Lockhart by marriage)

2.Add the location of the Lockhart in the following format: This County, State, Lockhart Name Study IF it comes up RED then that location/category hasn't been created...either let ME know or I will watch the "wanted categories" section and will take care of it. NOTE: the commas, punctuation are all important. If you have one letter off, it won't set up correctly...I can fix them as long as the profiles aren't restricted via the privacy setting.

WikiTree Participants

Please add your name and a description of your specialty and your problem Lockhart (my mom would have said Nae X  :)

Nae X: Colonial Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas (although my research skills in Texas are weak, but getting better) Lockharts. Additionally, just about anywhere in the USA for the 1800s.

Brick walls:
John Lockhart of Hampshire County, Virginia and Wirt County, West Virginia 1766-1832. This fellow has stumped researchers for 50 years. Possible lead/brother or relation is General Josiah Lockhart and his father Robert Lockhart of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
NEEDED: DNA from a male descendant of Robert Lockhart.
Research in Lancaster County and Philadelphia Presbyterian Churches for a first marriage of Robert Lockhart and possible spouse with a last name of Lyons.
Byrd Lockhart Sr born in Virginia around 1750 and died near Fort Russell, Illinois in 1814. See a sub study resource page: The Byrds/Bird Lockharts His son was an Alamo defender and is listed at the Alamo as such in Austin, Texas.
NEEDED: DNA from a descendant of Byrd Lockhart Sr
Connection for Byrd Sr in Virginia...a will, or perhaps to Col William Byrd...another avenue of search that I have not explored.

Leanne Cooper: New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, Canada

Problem Lockhart (I won't yet call this a brick wall, as I haven't yet exhausted all research possibilities!):
William Lockhart (abt. 1795 - aft. 1871) was born in Nova Scotia and settled in New Brunswick. The Lockhart genealogy, "Lockhart families of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick", says that he was possibly the oldest son of Timothy Lockhart and Elizabeth Teed of Sackville, NB, but acknowledges that this is uncertain given that their youngest son was also named William. As the 1861 and 1871 censuses both have William's birth place as Nova Scotia, it is unlikely that he was the son of Timothy and Elizabeth. He must be connected to one of the Nova Scotia Lockhart families, but which one?

Roy Lockhart West Virginia Lockharts.

Brick walls:
John Lockhart of Hampshire County, Virginia and Wirt County, West Virginia 1766-1832.

Robert Moody Richland County, Ohio Lockharts.

Brick Wall:
William Lockhart born about 1800 in Virginia? Moved to Richland County, Ohio, settling in Jefferson township about 1825. Married a Sarah Ann McDonald/McDonnel also of Virginia.

Susan Shirey Lawrence and Mercer County, Pennsylvania Lockharts

Brick Wall
Robert Lockhart born about 1765 in Virginia but traveled west through Pennsylvania, Huntington County, then what was Mercer County which then changed to Lawrence county. Married Margaret McClung, Rachel Morris, and lastly Elizabeth Anderson, all of Pennsylvania.

Sherry Lockhart Tazewell County, Virginia Lockharts
