John Holdrege HOXIE was the last child born to John Holdredge HOXIE and his wife Mary E. VanRyper. He was born 22 Sept 1880 and died 16 Feb 1945. Born in Mystic he died in West Hartford at age 64. He was a fire examiner.

In 1942, according to his WWII Draft Card he was working in Glens Fall, NY for the Glen Falls Insurance Co. He had a joint missing on his index finger of his right hand.

About 1915 he married Emma Louise NEVILLE and they had a daughter. He had a draft card for WWI and at the time he was a fire examiner in Boston. The 1930 census says "No" in the column for veteran so I had to take a closer look at the flag holder next to this headstone. See tomorrow's blog post for this interesting marker.
