Seeking inf. on the names HOCKER, KERSEY, TEATER.  Zorado Jane HOCKER b: 10 Apr 1841 Garrard Co. d: 29 Apr 1880 Garrard Co.  m: William C. TEATER 9 Sep 1858 Jessamine Co., KY (also listed in Garrard Co., KY). I have background on the TEATER line; however, I show Clayton HOCKER as father of Zorado since he signed as bondsman on her marriage.  I found Clayton HOCKER m: Martha Ann KERSEY on 28 May 1838 Garrard Co., KY & he is later shown with a wife Elizabeth.  Need parents of Clayton HOCKER & names of other children.  I found a birth of a Clara F.A. HOCKER on 20 May 1852 Garrard Co.; however, Clayton is shown alone on the 1860 Census Jessamine Co., KY next to Wm. TETER & Zorado J. & son Clayton N.  1870 Jessamine Co., KY Census shows Clayton (55),Elizabeth (31). I'm only assuming Clayton is father of Zorado Jane HOCKER since he signed as bondsman at her marriage; however, it did not state he was her father. Will appreciate any help given re: Clayton HOCKER and his parents.  Also, if anyone has definiate information showing him as father of Zorado.
