      Research Notes of Lora Redman Lockhart:
      John Richard "Jack" Hancock was born 20 Aug 1879 and died 22 Dec 1953. He married Alice Estes on 25 Jan 1903. They were the parents of Ruth E Hancock and Gerald E Hancock. Jack Hancock was a blacksmith. He and his wife are buried in the Oak Lawn Cemetery at Maysville Missouri. Their daughter Ruth Hancock married Morris Harman and he is also buried at the Oak Lawn Cemetery. Alice Estes taught at the Pleasant Valley School in DaKalb county Missouri and boarded with the Lucas family who were neighbors to the Hancocks. That's where she met Jack Hancock. They were married at the home of her parents, Alfred T Estes and Polly Harrell in Fairport Missouri by Rev DC Campbell, a Baptist Minister. They started housekeeping on a farm east of Pleasant Valley School on Peach Creek where their daughter, Ruth Hancock, was born. After a short period in Colorado, they returned to Maysville where Jack Hancock operated a Blacksmith shop on South Polk street for 1911 to 1945. After retireing to a farm he returned to Cameron Missouri and operated a Blacksmith shop south of Hiatt's Grill. Jack Hancock was a deacon in the Baptist Church, a Mason, School Board member and served on the City Council. After Jack's death 22 Dec 1963, Alice made her home in Kansas City with her daughter Ruth. In April 1956 she moved to the Wyatt Park Nursing home in St Joseph Missouri where she died 18 Nov 1964. She helped Ruth rear her three daughters and they stayed in their grandparents home until school age when they returned to Kansas City to go to school. They spent their summer vacations with Alice and Jack in Maysville. John Richard "Jack" Hancock, a DeKalb co, farmer moved to Colorado because of his wife's Alice (Estes) health in 1909. They returned to Maysville in Oct 1911 and he leased a blacksmith shop from Reuben Winters (picture included). Later he purchased the shop and operated it from 1911 to 1945. He served on the Maysville School Board, was a deacon in the Baptist Church, built a new house east of the Methodist Church in 1920, was a past master of Parrott Lodge 308 AF and AM and his son Gerald is still a member of this Lodge. He sold the shop to JB Bellon and moved to a farm near
      Turney Missouri, later moving to Cameron and operating a blacksmith shop near the old Red X Garage.
