When you refer to St. Stephens Parish of Georgia, you must be referring to a Parish in one of the adjacent or nearby South Carolina Districts, for Georgia had abolished the Parish system and all references to parishes in 1777 with the then Constitution of the State of Georgia - which only referred to Counties as government entities.
Oh, I have two corrections to what I earlier posted regarding the 1900 census for "THADUS" or Stephen T. and Sarah E. Lizzie Locklear:
Locklear, Stephen T. age 39, born S.C., parents born S.C. & S.C.
Locklear, Sarah E. age 35, born S.C., parents born N.C. & S.C.
Locklear, Mary B. age 15, born GA., parents born N.C. & S.C. (I mistakenly placed N.C. for the last birth state).
Locklear, Lela age 13, born GA., parents ditto
Locklear, Catherine E. age 9, born GA., parents ditto
Locklear, Thomas W. age 6, born GA., parents ditto
Locklear, Minnie O. age 3, born GA., parents ditto
Locklear, Richard P. age 1, born GA., parents ditto (I mistakenly had "T" rather than "P" for the middle initial).
Given how 'THADDUS' is buried along with "Lizzie" and both Thomas W. and Richard P., then "Thadus Lockliear" seems to have been the same individual as Stephen T. Locklear. At least, that's my reading of the comparison between the 1900 census record sheet and what is visible on the grave memorials at Buck Creek Methodist Church cemetery.
I hope that what I've posted helps to clarify who these Locklears were. Lizzie Locklear was my grandmother's older half-sister.
