Otelia's middle name was Bowen. Born 23 Jun 1890, died 21 Dec 1971, married William Parrish 11 Nov 1921. Daughters Mary Margaret and Fern Virginia. Otelia was the 4th child of Linden Porter Maphis and Mary Sidney Francis Lockhart "Mollie".
Linden's parents were George Maphis and Ann or Anna Elizabeth Cline. He was the 6th of 7 children.
Mary Sidney Frances Lockhart's parents were General Robert Volney Lockhart and Mary Ellen Victoria Hall. She was the 10th of 11 children. There is quite a bit of information on General Lockhart, including an account of how he was killed.
Mary Ellen married Henry Jefferson Brill after General Lockhart's death. Her parents were Colonel James B. Hall and Margaret Rosenberger.
General Lockhart was the 3rd child and eldest son of Brigadier General Josiah Lockhart and his first wife, Nancy O'Dell. (I am related to you through Josiah Lockhart, but through his second wife, Elizabeth Caroline Triplett. We are rather distant cousins!) Josiah and Nancy had 12 children and Josiah and Elizabeth had 9 children. However, all of Josiah's children with Elizabeth were born before they were married, and while he was still married to Nancy.
but we have the same relationship to Major Robert Volney Lockhart and Margery Denny, the parents of Josiah Lockhart, their eldest son, and the 2nd of 5 children.
Margery was married before Major Lockhart to James Wilson and had 4 children with him. After his death she married Major Lockhart. I have yet to confirm but believe that he was also previously married and had at least 2 children, Robert and Margaret. I also believe, but have yet to solidly confirm that he had at least 2 brothers, Samuel and Josiah. We know that he lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and it seems possible that he came from Northern Ireland and his first wife's maiden name may have been Lyons.
There is a book of Denny genealogy that you may find very useful.
Margery Denny was the daughter of David and Margaret Denny. David was the son of William Denny and he was the son of Frederick Denny, who is also believed to have come from Northern Ireland. Margery is the daughter of Walter Denny and Margery. Walter was also the son of Frederick Denny.
