Looking for a date of death (probably in the range of 1895 - 1899) for Hiram Thomas Shockley who died in Salem. He was born around 1832. His second wife was Elizabeth Cage and they married about 1879 -- possibly in Dent County. She filed for Civil War widow pension benefits in June 1899. They had two children -- Frances Shockley (born Dec 1879) and Hiram Oliver Shockley (born July 25, 1882). Hiram Oliver Shockley married Minnie Yankee on November 12, 1903. He died in Edwardsville, Illinois on July 15, 1940. I don't know anything more about Minnie or if they had any children. Frances Shockley married Oliver Vance -- I have no other information on them. Hiram Thomas Shockley had five children by his first wife Nancy Jane Ousley who died in 1876. Most of them settled in LaClede County, Missouri. Thanks one and all for any help!
