Shared note

In the 1880 US Federal Census for Heralds Prairie, White, Illinois, 33-year-old Indiana-born Michael and 28-year-old Indiana-born Florence A [Rhoads] Hockersmith have in their family their children, Indiana-born 10-year-old Luella, Indiana-born 8-year-old James M, Indiana-born 6-year-old Rosettie [sic], Indiana-born 5-year-old Lydia C and 1-year-old Illinois-born Ida M. Luella cannot read and write. Rosettie is listed as "malformed, crippled, bedridden, or otherwise disabled." Everyone's parents were born in Indiana. The birthplaces of the children would indicate that the family moved to Illinois from Indiana between 1875 and 1879.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Heralds Prairie, White, Illinois, 27-year-old Indiana-born James and his 22-year-old Illinois-born wife Laura B [Blazer] Hockersmith have been married five years and have had two Illinois-born children, both are living. Thes children are 3-year-old Della and 1-year-old Anna Bell. James is farming rented land. James and Laura can read, write and speak English. James' parents were born in Indiana, Laura's parents were born in Illinois, and the children's father was born in Indiana and their mother in Illinois.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Castor, Stoddard, Missouri, 37-year-old Indiana-born farmer James M and his 32-year-old Illinois-born wife Laura B [Blazer] Hawkersmith [sic] have been married 15 years and have had four Illinois-born children, all are living. These children are 13-year-old Della, 11-year-old Anna B, 8-year-old Ida M and 4-year-old Lee H. Della, Anna and Ida have attended school in the past year. Everyone except the two youngest children is recorded as being able to read, write and speak English. James is farming rented land. James' parents were born in Indiana, Laura's parents were born in Illinois, and the children's father was born in Indiana and their mother in Illinois. From Lee's birthplace in Illinois in about 1906, it may be deduced that the family moved to Missouri after 1906.

In the 1920 US Federal Census for Liberty, Stodard, Missouri, 48-year-old Indiana-born farmer J. M. [James M] and his 42-year-old Illinois-born wife Laura [Blazer]Hockersmith have their youngest Illinois-born child, 14-year-old Lee in their household. Lee has attended school in the past year. Everyone can read write and speak English. James owns the land he is farming. James' parents were born in Indiana, Laura's parents were born in Illinois, and Lee's father was born in Indiana and his mother in Illinois.
