I am piecing together a family tree from old postcards and letters of relatives of my grandmother. If there is anyone who knows about these families, I would like to hear from you. These names come from the time period of 1908 to about 1916: Henry and Clara HOCKER and Herman and Addie JACOBS.

From the late 1930s is the name Gertrude HOCKER, whose nickname was Happy. Any information about these people would be appreciated. Thanks, Kathy Nichols
