A year or two later he purchased a farm in Blackford County, Indiana, where they made their home until the year 1870. He sold this farm and bought a piece of ground near the city of Ft. Wayne, Indiana; there he and his wife spent the remaining years of their lives. In 1851, Jose K. Hobson received the commission from Governor Wright to act as Sheriff of Blackford county. In this official capacity he served the people with entire satisfaction, and credit to himself; at all times keeping in mind that "honesty is the best policy". Honesty being a feature that marked the entire life of this respected pioneer. He died August 24, 1878.

    Catharine Gochnauer, daughter of Samuel and Catharine Gochnauer, was born in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, June 4, 1820, and at the age of seventeen years, she was married to Jose K. Hobson. She was of German parentage and learned the German language in her infancy. This esteemed woman was possessed of great vitality and never ceased to labor, until about a year previous to her death, she met with an accident while at work in the home, which caused the fracture of the femur bone; then she became a helpless invalid, suffering much pain for weary months. But she was tenderly nursed, and patiently waited, until she was called to the home where sorrow and pain never enter. She died at her home near Ft. Wayne, December 28, 1902.
