A. Jockisch, Emil Amos T. (March 11,1848/9 IL- March 16,1916) m. August 27,1873 Platte, Nebraska
Smith, Susan Frances (April 16,1849 Staffordshire, England-December 27,1925 Rising city, Nebraska age 76)

 Parent: Smith, Joseph David (January 29,1810 England-after 1880 Nebraska) & Worsey, Martha

both born in England Susan immigrated in 1850 to USA


        Amos is not mentioned living with his parents in 1860, thus we can only assume he moved away from home by the age of 12. His father died when he was around 16. At the age of 25 he married Susan Smith on August 27,1873 in Platte, Nebraska. Susan emigrated with her family from England in 1850 at around the age of 1. Her father Joseph David Smith and her mother Martha Worsey Smith are listed on their marriage certificate.

        Amos settled down to farming. Four children had joined their family by 1880. Also living with them was Susan's widowed father David Smith. Thirty years later (1910) Amos is now going by Emel F Jockisch with only two children living with them: Ralph age 22 and his brother Louis age 18.

        Amos passed away at the age of 61 in 1916. Frederick A Jockisch at the age of 42 was living with his 72 year old mother in 1920. She passed away at the age of 76 on December 27,1925.

        Ten children were born to Amos and Susan: Charles A, Fredrick Amos, James Alvin, Mary E, Franklin L, Martha M, Julius, Louis, Ralph Ervin, Margaret Maggie E, and Louis (Lewis) Henry.

        Some of their grown children appear in the 1920 census. Their daughter Merolyn E. (Jockisch) Trindall age had moved to King, Washington having married Robert Trindall with their daughter Alice age 11. Another child James A Jockisch is shown married to Myrtle I. They have 3 children. Ralph E Jockisch age 33 had married Maude E age 24. They had two children: one age 2 y 4 m (Frances), and the other 5 month (Ray). Living with them was Maude's sister Ethel Raitt age 23. Theodore W Jockisch & his wife Parlee M were still living in Alabama with one child age 10.

        Ten years later (1930) James A Jockisch age 52 is living Columbus, Platte, and Nebraska married to Myrtle age 44. Two children one age 20 born and the other age 18 are living with them. Ralph by this time was living in Monrovia, Los Angeles, CA at the age 41 with his wife Maude age 35 with three children ages 12 to 9 years.

    Joseph David Smith father of Susan Smith.

9. Jockisch, Ralph Ervin. (September 10, 1886 Nebraska- June, 21,1946) m. February 28,1917. Raitt, Maude, Elizabeth (March 17,1895 Rising City, Nebraska-December 21,1982 Monrovia, California) buried at Live Oak Memorial Park, 200 East Duarte, Monrovia, CA 91016 Her Parents: John Raitt birth date January 1863 Scotland Married Lilly Raitt (December 1877 IL-) around 1893.


        As mentioned above Ralph lived at home until he was at least 22 where he helped his dad with the farm. Like all young men he registered for the draft. The draft records give his birth date as June 12,1886 in Rising City, Butler County, Nebraska.

        February 28 he married Maude Raitt around the age of 31. Ralph learned the trade of masonry and became recognized for his skillfulness. Their first three children were born in Nebraska. They moved to California around 1925 and eventually settled in Monrovia.

        A news paper article below shows his brother and him plastering a bank. On his house he put up the sign R E Jockisch, Plastering brick and stone, Mason. Ralph worked on Boulder Dam that later became known as Hoover Dam.
Ralph played the mandolin and his brother Fred the guitar at the First Christian Church. When Ralph's oldest child Frances had learned to play the Clarinet she joined them.

        Maude had inherited some land from her parents. After moving to California, she sold it so her and her husband could put a down payment on the house where they lived. The landlord wanted to sell, and they wanted to buy.

        In 1931 their youngest child was born. Little did they know that Ralph would pass away in 1946 of a heart attack. Having this youngest child David Dale at home greatly helped Maude at this time.

            World War II started in the late 30's, early 40's. Ray their oldest son joined the service and their third child Easter became a lady Marine.

            Maude after the passing of her husband went to work at various jobs. For a while she worked for assessors department. Another time she worked in a factory making ceramic animals. Besides all this she was a seamstress. Another way of bringing in income was by using one of the rooms that had a door to the outside as rental.

            After David moved out, the big house wasn't needed so she sold it and purchased another. In December of 1982 she passed away at the age of 87.

                                    VIOLA E WURM HARDY                                    

She was a graduate of Holt High School and received her BS in Nursing Education from the University of Alabama. She received her MA in Curriculum and Research from the University of Alabama. In 1947, Evelyn Hardy was a member of the first nursing class of the University of Alabama to receive a BS degree. Evelyn Hardy was a pioneer in the field of geriatric nursing. In 1956, she and her husband, Lyman Hardy, opened one of the first nursing homes in the state of Alabama with a registered nurse in charge. LaRocca Nursing Home, a nationally recognized facility, became known as more than a skilled nursing facility, but a “home” to its many residents.

        Mrs. Hardy's hallmark philosophy was “the dignity and personal worth of each resident”. Mrs. Hardy was a member of Sigma Theta Tau, the Honor Society of Nursing, a member of the Board of Examiners for Nursing Home Administrators, a member of the Alabama State Nurses Association, a member of the Capstone College of Education Society, a Charter member of the Capstone Nursing Society, and an Adjunct Professor of the Capstone College of Nursing. The Evelyn Wurm Hardy Scholarship was established in 1982 by friends and residents of LaRocca at the University Of Alabama Capstone College Of Nursing.

         Mrs. Hardy pioneered the Pilot Program in Body Recall for Special Populations (nursing homes) in the United States. She was a nominee by the Alabama Gerontological Society for outstanding contributions to the welfare of older Alabamians. In 1975, she was nominated for the American Nurses' Association Honorary Nurse Practitioner Award. In 1989, she was a recipient of the “Search for Excellence Award” by the American Nurses' Association along with the State Nursing Association. In 1992, Evelyn Hardy received the first Distinguished Nursing Leader Award from the University Of Alabama Capstone College Of Nursing.
