Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 683, Salem Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"SELBY A. HANCOCK is the son of MICAGAH and MARY (LONG) HANCOCK, and was born February 20, 1826. His father was born in Delaware in 1790, and his mother in Jefferson County, Ohio. SELBY A. worked on his father's farm until 1844, when the family moved to Wabash County, Indiana, and farmed until 1850. In 1852, he married MARY J. PAGE, who has borne him three children - ARMINTHE, deceased; JOHN F., deceased; and GEORGE W. In 1865, he came to this township, purchased eighty acres, and engaged in farming and stock raising. His father, now in his ninety-third year, came to this township in 1850, and is said to be the oldest person now living here. His wife died in 1857. SELBY A. HANCOCK is a Republican, and is a regular attendant at church."
