      Lineville Tribune, Leon Reporter, Iowa, March 14, 1895
      Mr. David Ockerman, whose hopeless illness was mentioned in these columns, died at his home on West Third Street in Lineville on last Monday afternoon aged 75 years, 11 months and 4 days. The deceased was born in Kentucky, March 19, 1819, his father, Daniel Ockerman having been a native of Pennsylvania and one of the early settlers of Kentucky. The family moved to Highland County, Ohio in 1821, where the subject of this sketch was reared and educated. In 1839 the family emigrated to Decatur County, Indiana.
      Mr. Ockerman was married in Indiana October 15, 1840, to Mary S. Barr, and in 1854 with his wife and children, moved to Decatur County, Iowa, near Pleasanton, where they resided until 1878 when they removed to Lineville. Eight children were born to them, four only now living, Mrs. P.C. Hampton and Mrs. Luther Collier, of Mercer County, Missouri; Miss. Mary Ockerman of this place, and Mrs. Joshua Hampton, of Nebraska. Father Ockerman was an active member of the M.E. Church, and in his life was an example of Christian character.
      He was a member or the Masonic Fraternity and by the hands of his brethren his remains were taken to the Pleasanton Cemetery on Wednesday and laid to rest beside the wife of his youth, who passed away January 16, 1863.
