     GEORGE M. HOKE is the owner of a well improved farm in section 1, town of Ithaca, is a representative of one of the sterling pioneer families of Richland county and is a veteran of the Civil War, in which he made a gallant record. Mr. Hoke is a native of the old Empire State of the Union, having been born near Cooperstown, Otsego county, N. Y., Feb. 5, 1845, and being a son of Cornelius and Delia (Bush) Hoke, both of whom were born in the famous Mohawk valley of that state, where the respective families were founded more than two centuries ago. Cornelius Hoke, who was a shoemaker by trade, came with his family to Wisconsin in 1850, locating in Rock county, where he was identified with the operation of a saw mill until 1852, when he removed to Richland county, securing 160 acres of wild land, in the town of Willow. About 1854 he bought 160 acres in Ithaca township, where he remained until 1856, when he took up his residence in the village of Sextonville, where he worked at his trade and also engaged in operating a saw mill. Thereafter he passed about two years in Juneau county, whence he returned to Sextonville. Two years later he located on a farm in the town of Sylvan, where he passed the remainder of his life, his death occurring Dec. 6, 1880. His first wife died in 1861 and he later married Mrs. Dary, widow of Jacob Dary. She still survives him and resides in Sylvan township. He was a Democrat in his political proclivities and was consistent member of the United Brethren church. Of the five children of the first marriage the subject of this sketch is the eldest; Mary is the wife of Hiram Barden, of Clark county; Charlotte is the wife of George Toptine, of the same county; James B. is a representative farmer of Sylvan township, as is also Nelson. Two children were born of the second marriage: Emma is the wife of Frank Frye, of Sylvan township; and Winifred remains with her mother on the old homestead farm. George M. Hoke was but five years of age at the time of his father's removal to Wisconsin, and owing to the conditions of the pioneer days his early educational advantages were very limited in scope. He learned the shoemaker's trade under the direction of his father and thereafter he gave his attention principally to agricultural pursuits until the outbreak of the Civil War, when he promptly tendered his services in defense of the Union. On Jan. 1, 1862 he enlisted as a private in Company M, First Wisconsin Volunteer Cavalry, which went into camp at Kenosha, shortly afterward (Mar. 17, 1862) proceeded to St. Louis, Mo., and remaining in that state until May, 1863, fighting bushwhackers. The regiment then joined General Rosecrans at Murfreesboro, taking part in the battles of Shelbyville, Chickamauga and other engagements and then being sent to Knoxville, to relieve General Burnside, being engaged in a number of sharp conflicts with the enemy. Later the regiment joined the forces of General Sherman, near Chattanooga. At the expiration of his term of enlistment, Mr. Hoke re-enlisted, as a veteran, becoming a member of the same company and regiment. In April of that year he was granted a veteran's furlough, passing the period at his home. He joined his command, which was stationed in Louisville, Ky., for two months. He was assigned to scouting duty in that locality, and after about two months marched with his regiment to Nashville, where he was similarly engaged for the ensuing four months. He rejoined his regiment at Calhoun, Ga., and shortly afterward returned to Louisville, where he did recruiting work. He then started for Nashville with his regiment, proceeding as far as Bowling Green and then being ordered to follow General Lyons, whose forces were overtaken at Hopkinsville, Ky., a running fight continuing about two weeks. The First Wisconsin then returned to Nashville and was ordered to West Point, Miss., taking part in Wilson's raid, and later assisting in the capture of Selma and Montgomery, as well as Tuskegee. Apr. 15, 1865, the regiment assisted in the capture of West Point, Miss., remaining there two days and then being ordered to Macon, Ga., where the command was stationed at the time of the final surrender The First Wisconsin Cavalry assisted in the capture of Jefferson Davis, and Mr. Hoke has a copy of the original report of the capture. In June his regiment was ordered to Nashville, remaining about one month, and there he received his honorable discharge, July 19, 1865. Though he served during the entire course of the great civil conflict Mr. Hoke was fortunate in never being wounded or captured. He was promoted to the rank of sergeant and as such received his discharge. After the war he returned to Sextonville, and for the folowing five years he was engaged principally in farming. He then took up his residence in Sextonville again, and for the ensuing twelve years he was engaged in managing and operating a sawmill. In 1883 he bought his present farm, of 120 acres, in section 1, Ithaca township, and here he makes a specialty of fruit culture and the general nursery business, having built up a successful enterprise in this department of his farming operations, and having one of the valuable places of the township. Mr. Hoke is a stanch support of the cause of the Republican party and has served in various local offices in his township. In a fraternal way he is enrolled as a member of W. H. Bennett Post, Grand Army of the Republic, at Richland Center, and he is also a prominent member of the lodge of Independent Order of Odd Fellows at Sextonville, having been identified with the same for the past thirty years and having held the various official chairs. He is well known in the county and his course has been such as to retain to him the confidence and good will of all who know him. Jan. 19, 1867, Mr. Hoke was united in marriage to Miss Maria Johnson, who was born in the state of Illinois, being a daughter of William and Mildred (Sexton) Johnson, honored pioneers of Richland county. Of the nine children of Mr. and Mrs. Hoke seven are living: Ora W. is engaged in the mercantile business in the sate of California; Charles A. is deceased; Joseph M. who married Miss Jennie Warren, is a farmer in Ithaca township; Nicholas J. remains at the parental home; Frederick H. is a farmer in the town of Ithaca, the maiden name of his wife having been Fannie Weitzel; William J. is a cheesemaker by occupation and resides in Sauk county; Clara is the wife of Wesley Thomas, of Sauk county; Ida is the wife of Jacob Wolf, of that county; and the ninth child died in infancy.
