9. Jockisch, Carl Wilhelm & Rohn, Elizabeth
Jockisch, Carl Wilhelm (March 1, 1829 Saxony, Germany-October 19,1905 age 76 y 7m 18d) farmer m: Nov.1,1855 Rohn, Elizabeth (1839/40 IL-)
Here we have a discrepancy. It says he was born in Saxony 1829 but other information states they arrived in America 1828. Another discrepancy is he refers to his father's name as Gotthalf, yet other places the father's name is Gottlieb. Maybe you the reader will be able to clarify this. If the older children are correct, he was born in America probably Texas.
William (for that is what he is called in the articles) was 21 when his father died. He continued farming his share of the inheritance until 1870. In 1854 he obtained a warrant for 40 acres in Township 8. With this he was now ready to marry his sweetheart Elizabeth Rohn in 1855 and start a family. He was able to increase his land holding to four hundred and eighty acres of good land. Later on the downsize to 240 acres.
The census of 1860 list their first child Catharine E age 1. The family size grew to 7 by 1870 Census. They were even able to hire Charles Bartholdt age 17 to help with the farm. That same year he had moved to Sixth Street in Beardstown on which he built up a sizable residence and retired from farm work. All the children has left home by the 1890 census.
William became a stock holder and director of People's Bank in Beardstown at the time of its organization. Whereas for many of the residence in 1838 and 1839 the building of railroad was a financial burden, now over 21 year later for William it aided him greatly in making his fortune, as much of the land he owned was increased in value due to it.
William is noted for the labor he put in to build up the city of Beardstown for nearly 35 years. During that time he was appointed public administrator of Cass County. William and his wife Elizabeth were members of the Methodist church where he held trusted and important role with that denomination.
Altogether they had seven children: J. Victor, Mrs. Elizabeth Brines, Annie, Mrs. Rosa Henning and Rudie. William passed away after being married for nearly 50 years at the age of 76 . Elizabeth was now a widow living alone until her death over the age 80.
Their son John Victor went into the dry good business first as a partner with Phil Kuhl called the Phil Kuhl and Jockisch dry Goods for 41 years. After Phil retired John named the business "The Model". Also he was the director of the First National Bank of Beardstown for thirty years One of their daughters married a doctor. Their grandson Rudolph son of Rudolph ( Rudie) moved to Bell, CA.
