W. M. BOCKIUS,
[p. 564] a progressive farmer of Shenango Township, owns a fine farm of
forty acres, on which he has passed his life since he was ten years old.
He was born in Hickory Township, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, January
27, 1848, and is a son of John and Elizabeth (Martin) Bockius.
The grandfather was Daniel Bockius, who took part in the War of 1812. He
was born in 1782, in Holland, where he learned the trade of bookbinding.
This he followed in Philadelphia, and also after settling in Lawrence
County, on the State line, about one-half mile above Eastbrook, and in
the libraries through this section may yet be found specimens of his
skill. Little is known of the grandmother except that her name was
Rachel and that she was of Scotch birth.
