James Patterson Hockersmith & His Father Joseph (Job)?
Family lore always said his father was Joseph Hockersmith (Hockensmith) born abt 1823 married to Eve Tusser born abt 1829.I have found some supporting census info with James and his siblings that match the family stories.
But...I have also run into a Job Hockensmith with similar atttibutes and some other census records....
Anyone have any knowledge of this part of the family.I have quite a bit more info, but didn't want to go through it all if no one here is working on any of these people.
Thanks in advance
