Fifth son of Jacob F.and Elizabeth (Zimmerman) Hockman. Christian started his career as a bootmaker with his father and brother, William. Later, however, he turned to dentistry. He was known in the community as "Uncle Chris" and while he had his practice inside his house, he did travel to adjoining counties. On June 25, 1862, when he was nearly 34 years old, he was mustered into the Confederate Army in Edinburg by J.D. Rinker. He served as Chief Bugler in Co.K,12th Regt. Va. Cav. Taken prisoner at Berryville on Nov.29,1862, he was confined in the Old Capital Prison in Washington,D.C. On Dec.3,1862 and appeared on a POW list dated Feb.5,1863. He was paroled as a POW on May 4,1865. On Oct.29,1873, he married Laura Vigina McKown (Nov.22,1849-May 6,1920) of Fredrick County, Virgina. They moved to Tilton, Ga. in 1884. He suffered from rheumatism (Rheumatoid Arthritis) so severe that he could not hold the reins to his horse-drawn buggy and he had great difficulty in walking. He died due to an inflamed stomach. His body was shipped back to Edinburg. His remains were taken to the Christian Church and funeral services were conducted by Rev. D.H. Rhodes. The body was then turned over to the Masonic Order (Hunter Lodge #135) and interred according to the ceremony of Masonry.
