      William Lockridge . . . grew to man's estate in his native Virginia and, following in his father's footsteps, became a soldier in his country's service during the War of 1812, belonging to an independent rifle company. He was married in Virginia to Rachel, daughter of David Chambers, who was an early settler of Augusta County, that state, and was one of the heroes of the Revolution. William Lockridge and his bride began life together in Augusta County, and continued to live there until September 13, 1830, when they started on an ever memorable journey through a wild and sparsely settled country for Indiana, arriving at Crawfordsville the 20th of the following October. They entered a quarter section of land in Walnut Township, and moving upon it the following spring, made it their home until death, Mrs. Lockridge dying in 1842, and he in 1844.

      Mr. [William] Lockridge had proved himself a valuable pioneer in developing the agricultural resources of the county, and had cleared and put under cultivation a goodly portion of his land. He was helpful also in promoting the cause of religion in this section, as a charter member and a liberal supporter of the Union Presbyterian Church. He was politically a Whig. The following are the children born to him and his wife, of whom four are living: Eliza married Jackson Smith and lives in Iowa; Margaret, deceased, was the wife of David Reed; Rebecca, deceased, was the wife of Samuel Martin; Ellen was the wife of John C. Bowman, of Boone County, Ind.; Isabella was a resident of Iowa; Harry died at the age of seventeen; John W., James (deceased), and two sons that died in infancy - Robert and William - complete the list.
