He came to Iowa and settled in Henry county in 1838 and was married March 27, 1851 to Juliam (sic) HICKMAN. This union was blessed with six children - five daughters and one son. In 1882 Mr. HOCKETT came to Ringgold county and settled on his farm near Redding, Iowa. His death was caused by a stroke of paralysis. The final end came November 20. The funeral was conducted from the Middle Fork M.E. church by Rev. C. KNOLL and the remains were interred in the Middle Fork cemetery. Two daughters preceded him to the glory world. Three daughters, one son, his wife, four brothers and three sisters together with a host of friends mourn his departure. He was a kind husband and father, an obliging neighbor, a beloved brother, and devoted christian. May the Lord comfort the bereaved in this their hour of sorrow.
