  • Notes 
      1. Eder, Illinois as is listed in "Lockwood Genealogies" is a misspelling for Eden, LaSalle, Illinois. Eden is now part of Peru, Illinois but did exist in 1850 census. Note that per same book that her grandchildren through Matthewson Bertrard Jr. are all born in Eden, LaSalle, Illinois prior to her death which means she could have been living with his son at time of death.

      2. Parents: Jonathan Gilbert and Thankful Wetmore.

Lockwood, in the township of Eden, Mrs. Lucy G., widow of Madison B. Lockwood, aged 88 years. Mrs. Lockwood, accompanied by her sons, M. E. and E. D., came from Cleveland, O., and settled at Lamoile, Bureau county, in the spring of 1840, but after the marriage of M. B. and his settlement in Eden made his house her home. She was a member of the Congregational church, and distinguished for her remarkable energy of character and her practical devotion to her faith. She was an almost helpless invalid for a long period, closing with her death, but bore her affliction with remarkable fortitude, and was admired and venerated by all who knew her. E. D. Lockwood is a farmer of Peru township, and V. Leroy Lockwood is a Congregational clergyman of Brooklyn, N.Y.'"
