Re: Mary Hockersmith & Richard Peacock - Indiana 1960s
I found the 1930 census for Lance Hockersmith, he is living in Shelby township in Ripley Co., IN. He is listed right below his parents and I believe his grandfather, Marion Huls. Marion is listed right below the family of Michael and Laura Hockersmith, he is 84 years old, a widower, born in Indiana, father born in New York. I know Lance's mother's maiden name was Huls, so I am assuming, Marion is her father. Actually, when you look at the census, at first glance, the name looks like Loochesmith, but he is listed with daughters Irene,age 12, Alice, age 10, and Mary, age 4 ?/12. I have quite a bit of info I can send you. I even have a school picture of Lance when he was about 7 or 8 years old.
