Hugh Phillips, miner, was born 30 Nov 1812, in Illogan; parents were William Phillips and mother Elizabeth Withiel. Hugh married about 1838 Elizabeth Donnithorne, born about 1822 and had daughter, Mary Elizabeth born 17 April 1839 in Redruth. In 1842, Hugh went to America from Liverpool on the ship HANOVER and perhaps went to Wisconsin to mine. In 1846, Hugh returned to America with wife Elizabeth and daughter Mary Elizabeth, to New Orleans on ship WINDSOR CASTLE and they went to Grant County, Wisconsin. The next year they settled in Mineral Point, Iowa County, Wisconsin. Elizabeth and an infant son, Hugh, died from cholera epidemic in 1850. Hugh married 2nd, Priscilla Ellis Ladner, born 13 Feb 1829 in St. Leaven, Cornwall, daughter of Edward Ladner.They married 17 Sept 1851 in Mineral Point, Iowa Co., Wisconsin.

red mail Hocking
Looking for information regarding the Hocking family. Specifically, John Hocking, born abt. 1822 in Illogan, Cornwall, England. He married Anne M. (unknown) before 1842. Anne was born around 1824 in Illogan as well. They had 6 children when they sailed for America on the Ship "Oregon" from Penzance, England to New York City in 1852. Those six children were Elizabeth (Eliza), Richard, James, John, Mary, William. They settled first in Pennsylvania, had seven more children and then settled in Massachusettes to help build the famous Hoosac Tunnel. I believe most of the children then went West and settled in Nebraska later in the 1800s. If any of this looks familiar please let me know. I especially would like to know what Anne's last name was. I know there are a lot of Hockings from Cornwall, but hopefully, someone knows about this family. Thanks. Rae
