    • In the STRIFFLER-BENKELMAN BROADCAST, Volume 9, September 2, 1946, in a column titled "Still in the Service of the U.S.A.", it was noted that Robert Pocklington, recently discharged from military services, is now employed by the U.S. Government at Bremen, Germany.

      In the 1965 obituary of his father, it was written that "One of Mr. Pocklington's sons, Robert R. Pocklington of Algonac is missing and presumed drowned in a fishing accident Aug. 9." The same inforrmation was published in the 1965 issue of the STRIFFLER-BENKELMAN BROADCAST. However, Heidi Pocklington emailed in September 2010 that her father Robert Pocklington was still living. The articles above apparently were written prematurely.
