Re: re: Lycena (Sena) Hockersmith
My records show that Lysena HOCKERSMITH was born 10 Feb 1809 and that she died 6 Apr 1860. She married Richard WEST on 26 Jul 1826 at Richmond Twp., Madison Co., KY.
Richard WEST, the son of Jonathan and Charlotte (Pulley) WEST, was born in 1804 at Otter Creek, Madison Co., KY.
Lysena is shown as the daughter of Edward HOCKERSMITH of Jessamine Co., KY. This Edward has been shown to be Conrad [Edward] HOCKERSMITH, Jr., born abt 1746 in Frederick Co., MD., son of Conrad HOCKERSMITH (Konrad HACKENSCHMIDT), who came to America in 1739.
There has been some discussion among family researchers as to whether Lysena was actually the daughter of Conrad [Edward] Jr., or not. I simply cannot remember how she was tagged to be the daughter of Conrad [Edward] Jr. I think there is little doubt that her father came from Maryland.
I am interested in obtaining a list of her descendants. Please contact me at
