The 1792 tax valuations from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for Adam, Christopher and John Hocker, three of the sons of Johan Adam Hacker of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Recently, I’ve been updating and revising my great uncle William Wingeard’s A German-American Hacker-Hocker Genealogy. In the first edition, Bill did not include any information on Johan “Hans” Adam Hacker’s son Johan George (1766-1846). Fortunately, I have found some new information on him.
