This is a follow-up to my May 22, 2007, posting to the RootsWeb CARELOCK Message Board titled "Re: CARELOCK Book Compiled by Mrs. Smith MEDLIN, 1972."
With regard to the information appearing on pages 1 through the top of page 5 of the book "History of the Carelocks," by Mary Lou MEDLIN, 1972, only the first generation, presented on page 1, pertains to the CARELOCK family. The second generation through the sixth generation which are presented pertain to another branch of the CARLOCK family. The information presented for the first through fourth generations appears to agree with the information appearing in the book "History of the Carlock Family," by Marion Pomeroy CARLOCK, 1929. Some additional information not included in Marion Pomeroy CARLOCK's book appears for the fifth and sixth generations, but I believe the name Neil Shannon CARLOCK, Jr., listed in the sixth generation is incorrect and should instead be Neil Hayden CARLOCK. Extensive information about the six generations presented, as well as the CARELOCK and other branches of the GERLACH/CARLOCK family, can be found in the following report which appears on my h!
I believe much of the remainder of the information on page 4 and on the top of page 5 of "History of the Carelocks," which pertains to the CARELOCK branch, is incorrect, with some children attributed to incorrect parents, etc.
Following is what I believe to be correct information with regard to the next 4 generations of the CARELOCK line. Sources are available upon request. Note that there are probably other children which have not yet been identified. There is still a lot of research which needs to be done with regard to this branch of the family.
I am also in the process of inputting information into my database from the book "History of the Carelocks," by Mary Lou MEDLIN, 1972, pertaining to more recent generations of the CARELOCK family.
