I am trying to determine which Lock/e family my GGG-Grandmother Fatha Locke belonged to. She married Franklin Delmore Thrasher 1 Dec 1825 in Hardeman Co Tennessee. My first "find" was that a Juliana Lock married Green Parrish 30 Nov 1825 in Hardeman Co TN. Further research indicates the Lock/e and Parish families emigrated to Crawford Co Arkansas, then on to Lamar Co Texas.
In doing even more research, I discovered a Leander Lock/e was also with these families in TN/AR/TX. What caught my eye is that Franklin and Fatha had a son (my GG-GF) named Thomas Leander Thrasher.
I've seen Fatha connected with Leander, but I've never seen anything on Juliana. My guess would be she was Fatha's sister. The only census I've found her in:
1860 Census, J.P. 5, Paris, Lamar Co TX
p.113, 6/6, PARISH
Julian[a], 53, F, b. TN
John S, 19, M, b. AR
Isaac T, 13, M, b. AR
Some other notes:

Julian[a] Parish, Pct 5, Paris
1880 – Leander Lock on Lamar Co TX census (Prec 4); age 68, b. TN, father b. VA, mother b. KY
Can someone give me hope that I'm on the right track?
