Christopher HOCKER/HACKER

I am looking for information on Christpher HOCKER (original spelling: Hacker). He was born ca. 1776 at Erdenheim, Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to Johann George HOCKER and Margaretta WEIDMAN. Christopher married Catherine DAUB 10 Apr 1799 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

However, sometime around 1808, finding himself deep in debt, Christopher apparently fled Pennsylvania and his wife. He wound up in Ohio, where he married again and raised a family. I do not know who he married or where they lived. They had at least one child – George Washington HOCKER, born 16 Aug 1814, Ohio – who returned to Pennsylvania and married Elizabeth SCHEETZ, born Nov 1820, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
