Joseph Horrocks

JOSEPH - was born 7 May 1889 in St. Louis, Missouri.  My aunt Lillian Ziock Palmer told me many years ago that he married a woman named Nora who had a daughter by a previous marriage & Joseph was in Detroit, Michigan when last heard of.  He first appears in the St. Louis City Directory in the year 1907 as a laborer living at 4620 Michigan Ave.  This was his parents residence.  He appears again in the Directory in 1908 as a driver still living with his parents.  He appears again in 1909 as a laborer - same residence. In the 1910 census he is living with his parents in St. Louis, Mo.  On a draft registration card for WWI he is listed as residing in Detroit, Michigan. His marital status is single & his occupation is laborer.  The date of the registration is 5 June 1917.  In the 1920 census Joseph is listed as Joseph Horrock & wife Elnor in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio. They are lodgers in a boarding home.  No children listed.  His occupation is given as guard at an airplane field & Elnora's is a sales lady in a department store.  The 1930 census list Joseph in Detroit, Michigan. His occupation is given as service man at an auto plant.  Birthplace Missouri, birthplace of father England & birthplace of mother Mississippi.  I am wondering about the Mississippi birthplace as his mother was born in Illinois.  The Social Security Death Index lists his death date as December, 1963 but does not give a "last residence" address & his social security number was issued in Michigan prior to 1951.  Elnora died in the 70's in Los Angeles, Calif.
