Obituary:
An Old Resident Dead
The death of Charles Rex Bockius took place on Sunday night at his home, on Germantown Avenue, opposite Church Lane. The deceased was a native of Germantown, He was a son of Joseph Bockius, and was connected with several of the old families of Germantown and Chestnut Hill of German descent. After being educated in the Lancasterian School here, during which time his brother, Francis W. Bockius, was a tutor in that school, he engaged in the china business, in 1845, with Joseph Gorgas, on Second Street, above Market. Mr. Gorgas subsequently retired, Mr. Bockius and his brother, Samuel, continued the business and later Charles' son became a member of the firm. Mr. Bockius was a Democrat, and many years ago, after the consolidation in 1854, was chosen one of Germantown's representatives in Common Council. He was also a member of the Board of Health, a trustee of the Germantown Academy, and a vestryman of Trinity Lutheran Church. He is survived by a son, Albert A. Bockius, and a daughter, Mrs. Catherine Knight.
