About Lawrence Locklear
Birth: Mar. 20, 1894 Robeson County North Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 9, 1990 Fayetteville Cumberland County North Carolina, USA
Alfred Jacobs in the 1830's was originally from Richmond County, NC prior to New Brunwick County, NC and Lucy Smith (aka)Peggy Jacobs was from Marlboro County, SC. according to great-grandson Lawrence Locklear recorded oral Jacob family history. Prior to Lawrence Locklear's death I visited him with my uncle Bill Locklear at the rest home in Fayetteville, NC on Cumberland Road. Uncle Lawrence had both legs amputated & was in poor spirit when we arrived, however it was not long before he began to reveal some old family stories.
He spoke of his grandmother Eliza Jacobs & his grandfather Robert Ransom and gave us some valuable information according to oral family history.
He gave us an account of the children of Eliza Jacobs and their fathers. He was giving us the info of his sister Janie & her children. Then he spoke of Eliza having another son Britton Oxendine...This info was really a surprise. (See the recorded notes for Britton)
He spoke of Ashley Jacobs father being Wheeler McNeil (Indian). I didn't know about Ashley until Donna Mae Stevens records show him as a child of Eliza. Lawrence said he lived in Georgia.
