Recently discovered oldfamily photographs of two family members identified only as “Grandpa MOCK,Sallie DALES father”, and “Grandma MOCK.” Sallie Mock DALE was the motherof Robert C. DALE. The first name of his father (Sallie MOCK DALEs’ husband)is unknown at this time. The photo of “Grandma MOCK” lists Rushville onthe back. Also found in the same box of photos is one of Robert C. DALE,and a note indicates Rushville, Illinois as place of birth, which basedon date of marriage (1881) should be around late 1850’s or early 1860’s.This photo also notes on the back that the C. “He choose, but had no middlename.”
The 1850 Census for Rushville,Schuyler County, Illinois lists a Robert MOCK, age 26, b. Virginia, identifiedas a laborer and living in the BAGBY household. This would make this individualabout the correct age with a birth date of about 1824 to be the “GrandpaMOCK” who would be the grandfather of Robert C. DALE who married NellieFELLOWS in San Francisco, CA in 1881. However, have no connection or documentationthat this is the correct MOCK. Any help or leads appreciated.
