Hockemeyer descendants list and brief history

HOCKMEYER Descendants

by: Charles Young

The earliest known ancestors of this line were Hokemeyer, then Hockemeyer, and later Hockmeyer. George Hockmeyer learned that the family had come from Bissendorf, a tiny village some 5 miles southeast of Osnabrueck, Germany. My Hockemeyer ancestors came to the USA via New Orleans, Lousiana and settled in Franklin County, Missouri. Another Hockmeyer family that settled in New England is not believed to be related.

My paternal grandmother is Ida Hockmeyer Young. She and her siblings were the first generation born in the United States. She was born in Missouri and was the only family member who moved to Arkansas. She kept in touch with her relatives by exchanging letters and pictures and sometimes a visit. She died when I was 7 years old, and with her passing, contact with the Hockmeyer's became less frequent. Dad kept all the pictures and letters that his mother had received from his Hockmeyer relatives. However, he has few recent Hockmeyer pictures.

In the mid 1980's, Dad's cousin, George Hockmeyer, self published a small book of Hockmeyer descendants and family history. In 1990 he self published a more complete book which supplied much of the Hockmeyer information that appears on these web pages. Milford Frederick Hockemeyer is credited as a major contributor to George Hockmeyer's book. It was George Hockmeyer's research and book that partly influenced me to research my genealogy as well. However, instead of publishing a book, I am publishing on the internet. Consider this a work in progress.

When I first published these web pages in the fall of 1997, the only Hockmeyer information I had was from George Hockmeyer's book. Since then other relatives have supplied some stories about themselves and their families including some photos. Additional contributors include; Ed Twelker, Don Hoeman, Paul Twelker, and Phyllis Wythe Karsten.

Descendants of Christoph Henrich Hokemeyer and Johan Henrich Hockemeyer

In 1913, John Henry Hockmeyer wrote that God's divine healing was the reason that many of his descendants exist. His wife's healing occured in the mid 1860's. John Henry felt it was important to tell the following children (along with their descendants) the reason that their mother survived and gave birth to them;

Lottie (born 1868), Anna (born 1870), Ida (born 1872), Edward (born 1875), and Ted (born 1877).

John Henry's descendants who would not have been born without God's diving healing are listed in this box. This story was important to John Henry, and it is important to me because I am one of his descendats who would not have existed if his wife had not been healed from her near-fatal illness.
