Descendants of Joseph W. Rockwell and (Sarah?) Lucy Warren (Chace) (Rockwell)

I am interested in information regarding the descendants of Joseph W. Rockwell and Lucy Warren (Chace).

Joseph W. Rockwell is a s/o Samuel Rockwell and Joanna Hunt.

Lucy Warren is a d/o William Warren and Gertrude "Gitty" Quick of Smithfield Twp., Bradford Co., PA. She moved to Lawrenceville, Tioga Co., PA, w/her grandmother, Adeline Morton Warren sometime after 1860 because they are found in the 1870 Federal Census there. Also in the household is Freeman Warren--I do not know if he is an older brother or cousin of Lucy. William Warren is buried at Union Cemetery in Smithfield Twp., Bradford Co., PA. I do not know what happened to Lucy's mother.

Lucy m. 1st W. H. Chase/Chace of South Creek Twp., Bradford Co., PA. They had a daughter, Leda W. Chace. Leda was a schoolteacher and avid birdwatcher. She had a few observations published in "The Ooist." Leda never married, and as far as I can determine, she lived her life in Tioga Co., PA, and is buried in the Lawrenceville Cemetery near her mother, step-father, and half-sister.

After Mr. Chace's death, Lucy m. Joseph W. Rockwell. They had two daughters:

Bessie M. Rockwell, b. abt. 1884. Bessie was a schoolteacher and taught in area schools and later in OH. She is buried at Lawrenceville Cemetery with her parents and half-sister, Leda W. Chace.

Dorothy (Q.?) Rockwell was b. 25 Oct 1894 in Lawrenceville, Tioga Co., PA, to J. W. Rockwell and Sarah Rockwell. This is interesting because Sarah may actually be Lucy's first name though I don't know this for certain. I know that Dorothy also became a schoolteacher, but I cannot locate her after the 1910 Census for Lawrenceville. I am guessing she married because she is not listed as buried near her parents or siblings.

Joseph Rockwell worked as a rural mail carrier, and Leda Chace also worked as an assistant postmaster at Lawrenceville.

Any further information on these individuals would be greatly appreciated. Adeline Morton Warren is my 3rd g-grandmother--Lucy Warren Chace Rockwell would be my 1st cousin three times removed [Lucy's father, William, was the older brother of my 2nd g-grandmother, Sarah "Jane" Warren (Brooks)].
