    ... 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. ...

    ... In Blackford county Daniel Sutton wedded Miss Sarah C. Hobson, who was born in a little two-room frame house that stood opposite the court house on Main street, Hartford City, the date of her nativity having been July 4, 1840. She was a daughter of Joseph and Catherine (Goghnauer) Hobson, who were born in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia, where they were members of a German colony that had there been founded in an early day. Of the same ancestral line in Lieutenant Hobson, who won distinction in the United States Navy at the time of the Spanish-American war and who is now member of Congress from the State of Georgia. The marriage of Joseph Hobson and Catherine Goghnauer was celebrated in Henry county, Indiana, where the respective families settled in the pioneer days. Soon after marriage Joseph Hobson and his father-in-law decided to remove into the wilds of northern Indiana, and in 1837 they thus became residents of Blackford county. They established their home in the center of the county and they located the county seat, but they did not have sufficient financial reinforcement to exploit their effort, with the result that other persons established the county seat at Hartford City, a few miles distant.
    Samuel Goghnauer [Catherine's father] improved a farm in Jackson township, reclaiming the same from the virgin forest, and there the remains of himself and his noble wife rest in the little family cemetery on their old homestead. Joseph Hobson later removed to Allen county, and he and his wife died near the city of Fort Wayne, each having passed the age of three score years. Mr. Hobson was originally a whig and later a republican, and he was a staunch abolitionist in the days prior to the Civil war. ...
