Re: James & Mary (Muir) Hockenberry>Indiana
Maybe you have a lead.
Hockenberry is not my line but need info
on James Mitchell and Abigal Hockenberry who had a son William A. Mitchell b 1824 in PA
and he died and was buried in Eaton County, MI on Sept 22,1903. This Mitchell is buried with my Mitchell family.
My grandfather was William Grant Mitchell b 1873 he marr Allie Maxson who's father was Roswell R Maxson and her brother R Howard Maxson lived in TN. His line seems to run with Hodges/Perry/Mayo/Mitchell/Nelms/Frost and so on.(may not be of same Mitchell family)He R Howard Maxson married into the Walker Wright/Nelms family.
My grandfather William Grant Mitchell's father was Herod Mitchell b 1840 and Amanda Bray Vanatta Mitchell and his father is listed as Peter Mitchell reside NY mother unknown. There family names are Harrington/Shepard/Taggart/Maffit/Sawyer/LoopWeaver etc.
I have unknown photo's shown at
look on the left and click on an album called Gabbys lost tree's or odds and ends.
One photo all it said was Herod Mitchell's mother? she is very old and looks to be part indian?
Since the Abigal Hockenberry & James Mitchell are buried with my Mitchell family and you have both Mitchell and Hockenberry thought I'd inlist your help.
