I believe your James Hockersmith was the b. 25 Feb 1875 in Indiana m. 22 Aug 1895 in Carmi, White Co. IL to Laura Blazer and died 25 Feb 1922 in Stoddard Co MO. I have as their children Della, b. 1896, Anna Beth b. 1898, Ida b. 1902 and Lee b. 1906.
Please contact me if you think this is your family. I'd like to learn more about Della's family and have more Hockersmith info to share.
