Emma Bocock (1843) Biographical Sketch

[ JBO Note: The best source of information about Emma Bocock is a sketch written in the 1930s by Mabel Law Atkinson, a granddaughter–which is almost completely transcribed here. But there are difficulties with this account. Part of the problem is that there is no family organization devoted to the Bocock sisters themselves, and in the case of Emma, only to the Law or Blanchard patriarchs who then become the “heroes” of their narratives. These stories come from the family of Francis J. (Frank) Law, Emma’s only surviving child by her first husband, Charles Law.
