Esther
Linda, as for church records, I think your best bet would be the Huntingdon County Historical society. Some of the churches around that area keep their own records from way back, but many have been destroyed. Over the years, most have been submitted to the historical society, but you would have to ask the individual churches. That sounds like a job and a half to me.

Finding Grave of Esther Hockenberry
Linda, I checked every single photo that I took of the Possumtown cemetery and did not see a one that was for your Esther. I too have one very old descendant/family member that just doesn't have a death certificate even though it was at a time when it should have been done. I certainly understand your mother wanting to see that there is a marker for Esther and Esther deserves one. The Department of Health does offer a multi year death search. Also, find out who has the old family bible. It could be written in there. Juniata College has the Huntingdon Gazette online. You might find an obituary there that would tell you where Esther is buried. I would also suggest asking the Huntingdon County Historical Society to do a search for you. It typically isn't too much of a cost to look for one person. Ask you mother if she remembers her parents visiting any old grave yards. She was probably a little girl and would have to dig deep into her memories. Kids often times were taken along to visit graves and weren't told why. Mother might have been there! Also, check old photographs. I found a great grandpap's burial location from a pic my grandparents took of themselves inside the graveyard. I sure hope some of my ideas help you find baby Esther Hockenberry. And if not, tell your dear mother that if you can't find Esther now, you will find her someday and mark the grave for her. It will give mother peace of mind to know that it might not be done today, but that it will be done one day. Wendy

Hi. I am also related to our patriot ancestors John and Prudence Hall. My great grandmother's maiden name was Isabell Wood, son of David Newton Wood. A lot of my relatives lived in central Arkansas. I'd love to hear from you!
