Mary Harris and John William Hocking were wed on September 26, 1877 in Taylorville, Christian County, Illinois. Of the ten children born to this union, all were born in Friend, Saline, Nebraska with the exception of Harry & Pearl, who were born in Neosho, Newton, Missouri. Their children were: Charles Edward 1878-1967; twins, Besse 1880-1933 (who married Frank Emeigh, William Taber and Everett Dingler) & Jesse (a boy) 1880-1959; William Guy 1882-1972; Grace Bell 1884-1972 (who married Harry Albert Richards); John Ray 1888-1969; twins, Lena Pearl 1892-1947 (who married Rolin Virgil Fluitt) & Harry Harrison 1892-1982; Anna May 1896-1898; and Orville Orlando 1897-1982. Mary and John William divorced about 1909; however, she listed herself as widowed rather than divorced. -- 1880 US census for Precinct M, Seward, Nebraska: John W. Hawking 28 OH OH OH, Mary Hawking 23 VA VA VA, Charles Hawking 1 NE OH VA -- 1900 US census, District 0009, Brooking Townshop, Missouri (as enumerated): John Hocking 48, (both married 22 years) Mary Hocking 39 (record shows 43) (10 births, 9 living), Willie Hocking 16, Grace Hocking 14, Johny Hocking 12, Hary Hocking (record shows 7), Pearl Hocking (record shows 7), Orville Hocking 2 -- 1910 US census District 0036, Grand River Ward 1, Cass, Missouri: She listed Marriage 1 of 30 years (9 births, 9 living), Head of House, age 52 & her granddaughter Norma Emeigh age 8 & daughter Pearl Hocking age 17 were living with her. -- 1920 US census, District 0343, San Diego, San Diego, CA; Mary Hockings, Widowed, living at 2220 Julian Avenue with granddaughter Norma A Hockings (record shows Emeigh) age 18.
-- I have found Mary (usually as Hockings, widow of J W) listed in the San Diego city directories for 1922, 1924, 1925, 1927, 1928, 1929 & 1932 at 3776 First Street. Curiously, the 1930 US census for District 96, San Diego, San Diego, California which was enumerated on April 5th lists Mary H. MAYER age 72, Widow, Head of House, owned her home, living alone at 3776 First Street. She and her parents are listed as having been born in Virginia.
