Spot Crime

 

This was the home of J.D. Mock. and his wife. In 1903, Mrs. Mock’s health was such that the couple decided the house was too large for her to manage. Jd. Mock owned the Mock brick yard and had this house built from Mock bricks sometime right before the turn of the century.

In his later years, Mrs. Mock’s father, William N. Jackson, came to live with his daughter’s family in this home. Noted for bravery, Mr. Jackson served in the US Civil War in the Iron Brigade. These were Union troops who fought against General Stonewall Jackson in the Second Battle of Bull Run, among 48 other battles which had long-lasting effects on Mr. Jackson’s health. He passed away in this home.
