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 769, Beaver Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"GEORGE W. HANCOCK, son of MICAGA and MARY (LONG) HANCOCK, was born in Richland County, Ohio, February 28, 1827. When about ten years of age, his father took him to Marion County, where he was reared on a farm up to the age of twenty. The family then moved to Wabash County, this state (Indiana), and thence to Salem Township, this county (Pulaski). January 23, 1856, MR. HANCOCK was married to MARY CATHERINE LATON, who has borne him the following children: A girl, May 22, 1858, who died in infancy; ELIZA, born July 13, 1860; ALICE, March 6, 1863; GEORGE F. and SARAH (twins), September 23, 1865; CLARISSA, April 16, 1867; AMANDA, July 30, 1870; EMELINE, January 30, 1873; CHARLES E., February 8, 1875; OLIVER, November 4, 1878; and DELLA, June 7, 1881.
