Re: Washington Co. Oregon 1860: Hockett/Griffith surviving children
My name is Pete Hockett and Jesse Mills Hockett (Rachel's youngest brother)was my gg grandfather.I also have a copy of Experiences of "W.A.(William Albert) Hockett on the Oregon Trail".I do not know anything about Rachel and her marriage to John Griffith.I do know Jesse married Sarah Foster Booth in 1875 in Oregon.Sarah's father is the famous Oregon Circiut Rider John Booth.The Hockett's were both teachers in the Wilbur Academy near Roseburg. They moved to Portland in 1917 after living nearly 40 years in Douglas County. During her residence in both communities she took an active part in the affairs of the Methodist Church. Attached is a link to the Booth descendants. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/b/o/o/Mike-Booth/GENE1-0008.htmlhttp://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/b/o/o/Mike-Booth/GENE1-0008.html
There is a mention of Rachel keeping the Family Bible.Does anyone know of its existence?It may contain a lot of history.I am also looking for information about my heritage.There is a Booth family reunion this summer and they may have info about the Hockett's.http://www.oregoncircuitrider.orghttp://www.oregoncircuitrider.org
