We were told that the family had already removed all that they desired, but I looked at the books and papers and began to think as a genealogist. The next morning when I got off from work, I returned to the house, located at 7804 West Boulevard Drive, Alexandria, Fairfax County, VA, and began to look though what was left to see if anything of value had been overlooked by the family. I found the following items, and I would be glad to send them to them if the interested person can show a connection with this Hancock family.
First of all, here is what I could find regarding the names of this particular Hancock branch.
DAVID MAHON HANCOCK, born May 1, 1915 Lorton, Fairfax County, Virginia
MILES KLIPSTEIN HANCOCK, born Sept. 9, 1883 at 107 Prince St., Captain's Row, Alexandria (city), VA
died May 22, 1967, services at Everly Funeral Home, buried at
Mt. Comfort Cemetary
NETTIE ALICE MAHON HANCOCK, born May 14, 1890 in Baltimore MD
died September 4, 1963, buried at Mt. Comfort Cemetary
DAVID HANCOCK'S YOUTH BIBLE: In one of the bookcases, I found a small-sized Bible with David's name written in the front. He received it when he was age 10 (1925), when he attended the Methodist Episcopal Church South. At that time, according to an inscription, the Hancocks lived at 307 S. Fairfax St., Alexandria (city), Virginia.
MAIDEN NAMES OF GRANDMOTHERS LISTED: in the back of the Bible is the following inscription:
Papa's (Miles K. Hancock) mother's maiden name: JANE FLITTER
Mama's (Nettie M. Hancock) mother's maiden name: SYAN CURTISS
SYNA CURTISS' mother's maiden name: KATE WATERS
Below this is the list of maiden names, presumably going through the female line:
In addition, there is a pile of about 30 UNIDENTIFIED B&W PHOTOS, MANY FROM THE 20S AND 30S.
In addition, there is a variety of obituaries and related articles from local newspapers from the 40s and 50s about family members, church clergy and family friends. I xeroxed them so they're easier to ready, but I have the originals in an envelope.
If you are interested in this matterial, let me know. I would love to pass it all on to a family member.
