Flora E. ?? m. Raymond Hockersmith - Indiana
We're looking for my husband's long lost aunt.The last information we have on her is when her guardianship was closed on February 17, 1926 and she picked up the balance of the funds….she was 21.My husband's family has no memory of her and his mother and other aunts never mentioned her.Her name was Flora E. Folsom, born February 15, 1905, in Boonville, Warrick County, Indiana.
Starting with online databases in Indiana, we have begun a process of elimination to try to find out where Flora went.
We found in the 1930 census for Indianapolis, Marion County, IN, a FLORA HOCKERSMITH, age 25, b. IN, wife of RAYMOND HOCKERSMITH, age 26, b. IN, living with Raymond's mother, IDA HOCKERSMITH, age 59, b. IN (a widow).Both Raymond and Flora worked at a machine or medicine factory.
Backtracking on censuses, Raymond Hockersmith, was the son of Jacob and Ida Hockersmith, who in 1910 lived in Rushville Twp, Rush County, Indiana (Anderson, IN area).Also in the household were daughters Inez (15), Hazel (13), and Elma (11).On the same census there is another listing for this family (?) with same information except there is no daughter Elma, but a daughter Minnie (12).
On the Social Security Death Index, we found FLORA E. HOCKERSMITH, born February 15, 1905, SSN issued in Indiana before 1951, who died February 20, 1990.Her last residence was Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana.
Does anybody out there in the Hockersmith Family have any information about this particular Flora E. Hockersmith and can you tell us if her maiden name was or was not FOLSOM?
Thanks very much!
