My name is Brenda Lincke Fisseler and I am a member of the Lavaca County

thirteen WWII flyers who died in airplane crashes in Lavaca County, Texas

and Ethel Smith Hocking. According to the 1930 census, Ronald had two
sisters, Louella and Cloyce. He was killed in the crash of his B25
bomber on March 11, 1942.
The Historical Commission is hosting a conference in October that will
honor these thirteen young men and my assignement is to locate living
family members of each one of the men to let them know about the
conference and invite the families to participate in the event. As of
today, I have been able to locate family members of 8 or the 13 men, but
I have been unsuccessful with Hocking.
If anyone can help me locate family members of Ronald C. Hocking, I would

Merlyn D. Schultz
Date: 5 May 2005
I am trying to locate source documentation of the marriage of Henry
Schultz, b. 3 Aug 1879 in Hanover, Grey, Ontario CAN to Henrietta
Collins, b. 31 Oct 1881, Wheatland, Cass, DT. FamilySearch.com reflects
marriage date as 4 Nov 1902. These are my grandparents and I know they
resided in Cass County because my father birth, 25 May 1905, was recorded
as Gardner, ND. I am aware that the facility that maintained these
records burned down.
Also, the 1900 Federal census for Cass County, ND shows Henry Schultz,
Age 20, in the family of Mary Schultz, widow. I am trying to find out
the name of Mary's husband and if he died before or after Mary immigrated
in 1888 from Canada. Also, what happened to Mary?
Directly above Mary's family on the 1900 census is the family of John
Schultz. I believe John was Mary's son, but have been unable to
establish that link. I am a member of the Red River Valley Genealogical
Society, S-109 and any help you can be in my search is greatly
appreciated. Thank you.
