Jackson Hockersmith died at his home in Ashland Sunday March 28, 1897. He
had been confined to his home for the past three or four months of a severe
attack of jaundice and three weeks ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis
which left him in a critical condition and this coupled with his advanced
age precluded his recovery and he passed away. He was seventy-eight years,
eight months and twenty-eight days old.

Mr. Hockersmith was born in Kentucky and came to Oregon in 1853 and located
in Jackson County in 1865 and has resided here ever since. Besides the
widow who survives him Mr. Hockersmith leaves two sons living, J. N.
Hockersmith, of Ashland, and J. W. Hockersmith, of Sonora County, Calif.,
and four married daughters, Mrs. Geo. Van Tine, of Tenino, Wash., Mrs. A.
P. Weiss, of Ashland, Mrs. Henry Taylor, of Medford, and Mrs. P. L.
Fountain, of Klamath county.

The funeral took place at the Phoenix cemetery by the Predestcherian
Baptist Church, of which he has been a member for 60 years.
