Katherine Hoke, Washington Co., IN- Henry Hoke Sr.
I have a death certificate of James William Baxter who was the son of Abraham Baxter and Katherine Hoke according to the certificate. Marriage records show Katherine Hoke and Abraham Baxter married Dec. 25, 1834 in Washington Co. IN. Census records consistently show Katherine was born abt. 1817 in the state of IN. The 1820 census shows only 2 families of Hokes in Washington Co., IN- Cornelius and Henry Sr. Katherine should have been about 3 yrs old. Cornelius has no females in his 1820 household under the age of 10. Henry Sr's household shows one female under age 10, and for these reasons I am thinking that Katherine's father would be Henry Sr. I would appreciate any proof or further leads that would help me find out who her father was.
