     Levi Locke In 1819, the will of William Cook Rieves was proven in €hester County, South Carolina. Jesse Lock,
son of J osias, was one of the appraisers listed in the will, and land mentioned in the will was located between Fishing Creek and the mill road, adjacent to land owned by Josias Lock. The will identifies four Rieves children; Rhody, Mary, Ruthy, and Jinsey. Instructions were given that these heirs, or their
surviving heirs, would inherit the land of William Rieves at the death of their mother. It is now believed that more than one Lock man married into the Rieves family, and then inherited this land with his wife.

In a publication known as "Tap Roots", which was written by the Genealogical Society of East Alabama, Vol. 28, No. 2 from October, 1990, pp. 55-67, we find this passage.
One of the sons of Josias Lock appears to have married the daughier of William Co Rieves. 1n Book
BB, pp.
287-288, is named Lock descendants of William Rieves. They are Joseph and Mary Lock, Stephen alld Rhode Lock, Hellry and Mm:y Horne, and Levi and Ruth Lock. These heirs are
mentioned because they are selling land they inherited from the estate of William
C. Rieves, deceased.
From these notes, it appears that they were selling land that had been pnssed to them al
death, as previously instructed. When did the mother die, and who were these Lock descendants? To sort that out, we go to census records of Chester County, and of Meigs County, Tennesee. In the
census of 1830, we find a Joseph Lock between ages 30 and 40, living with his wife of the same age group, and one female child under ten but above five years of age. Jumping twenty years 10 the
County census of 1850, family # 113, we find a Joseph Lock, age 54, born in North Carolina, his wife,
Mary, age 55, born in South Carolina, a daughter, Sarah Ann, age 27, also born in South Carolina two more daughters born in South Carolina, Nancy, age 20, and Martha, age 15, and a son, Jonathan age
14, who was born in Tennessee. I believe that the Mary listed in this census was Mary Rieves, daughter
of William, which will confirm that one of Josias' sons actually did marry a daughter of William Rieves as reported in "Tap Roots". Also in the Meigs County 1850 census was Jesse Lock, age 57, his wife
(Mary) Agnes, age 55, and two of their sons, Jonathan N., and Benjamin F., age 14. We know that Jesse McCullough Lock, another son of Josias, relocated to Meigs County from Chester County in 1830, so it is obvious that his brother Joseph followed him there shortly after the birth of his third child ,
Martha, in 1835.
What about Levi and Ruth? It's very plausible that Joseph's nephew, and Joslas' grandson, Levi, born
along Fishing Creek in 1813, could have married William's younger daughter, Ruthy, also born along Fishing Creek between 1800 and 1813. Their youngest child was born in 1837 in Chester County, and
he was named, William, after Ruth's father. Levi and Ruth moved with their two children into York County in 1840, settling on Indian lands near the Catawba River, where they had five more children,
including Ruth in 1848. After Ruth's mother's sudden death, Levi married Malinda Shurley in 1849, and they had five more children.

So far, there is no explanation why Stephen Lock's name was associated with William's oldest
daughter, Rhody (Rhode). Josias' oldest son, Stephen, bad married Nancy Hines in 1805. Until we find
more estate records or census records, that will remain a mystery. He was born on 22 July 1816. He married Ruth Rieves, daughter of William Cook Rieves, circa 1830. Levi Locke witnessed In 1763, the British governors in the colony of South Carolina, signed a treaty with the Catawba Indian tribal leaders, setting boundaries on a fifteen square mile area that covered portions of southeastern York District, and southwestern Lancaster District. It was known as The Treaty of Augusta. The aim was to move the Indians into a tract of land in the North Carolina mountains, in exchange for the surveyed area. The newly arriving white settlers were not comfortable living near the Catawba tribes, and wanted them out. Under the threat of force, the tribe reluctantly consented to relocate to a tract of land in Haywood District, North Carolina, valued at $5,000. They were also promised $2,500 once the move was completed, plus $1,500 per year for nine years. At the time the treaty was signed, 508 white landowners already had lease agreements with the Catawba, and surveys had to be done before those leaseholders could be given state grants of the Indian land. By 1780, the $2,500, plus interest, was raised by taxes on the leaseholders, and was set aside for the Catawba, to be paid once their move was completed. However, North Carolina refused to honor their end of the bargain, and the move was never made, and the South Carolina legislature refused to ratify a renegotiated treaty.

By 1840, the leaseholders were clamoring for state recognition of their property rights so that they could be represented in the South Carolina legislature. A new treaty was drawn up. It would set aside the Treaty of Augusta, and would guarantee the remaining Catawba nation, then numbering about 88, full privileges and immunities as citizens of South Carolina, and The United States. The tribal lands would be taxed, and the existing leaseholders would receive full title to their leaseholds.

The location of the signing of the treaty was near the Nation Ford on the Catawba River, at a place called the Cross Roads, located about one mile above the ford. In the early days before the railroad was built, an inn and a few houses were built in that location so that travelers could wait for flood waters to subside, and the wide river could be crossed. A large farm near the Cross Roads was leased to Thaddeus Shurley, and his son Philemon, the father of Malinda Shurley, who would marry Levi Locke in 1848.

On March 13, 1840, the chief of the Catawba, General James Kegg, full blooded nephew of famed Catawba Queen, Sally New River, placed his mark on the paper, alongside five leaseholders appointed by the Governor. The state legislature approved the treaty in December, 1840, and it was known as the Nation Ford Treaty of 1840.

For over 150 years, the treaty was in force, but the South Carolina legislature voted to revoke the terms of the treaty in 1993. It was widely accepted that the Catawba had been coerced into signing the treaty, thereby relinquishing rights to their family lands with no real compensation. Largely a symbolic act, it returned taxes paid by the tribe for all those years, with interest, and set aside remaining tribal lands as a reservation.

It was no coincidence that a twenty-three old Levi Locke would move with his wife and two sons from their home in northern Chester County to the former Indian lands after the Nation Ford Treaty was signed in the Spring of 1840. Cheap farmland was suddenly available, and former leaseholders were looking to profit from their newly legalized status as landowners. He may have purchased his land from his future inlaws, the Shurleys. Mary Rosaline Locke was the first of his children born in York County on December 13, 1840. Levi would father five more daughters in York County before his first wife died in childbirth in 1848. in 1840 at The Lockes and the Nation Ford Treaty of 1840, Lancaster District, South Carolina. He married Malinda Shurley, daughter of Philemon Shurley and Lucreton Walston, in 1849. Levi Locke died on 12 August 1886 at Buried Catawba Bapt. Cemetery, in Lesslie, at age 70.
