James Lockler was born and raised in Dixie County, Florida. His family lived in the area long before it was established in 1921. A few of his family surnames include Barber, McClain, Holland, Lockler (Locklear), Land, Lowe, Ware (Wear), Cameron, Cothron and Hunt.
While researching his family tree in his early twenties, James fell in love with history, especially the history of Dixie County. He enjoyed sharing the information and photos that he discovered on his research journey with everyone.
After receiving a lot of encouragement and input from family and friends, James decided to write an historical timeline book titled, ‘’To Live and Die in Dixie’’. Unfortunately, while trying to complete and publish the book, James was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. While the illness did significantly sideline him, James was determined to release the book as a gift to the past, present and future residents of Dixie County.
James hopes you enjoy reading the book and are inspired to research your own family tree and expand on his research.
