    so Kris who is the Daniel Hocker who married Mary Elizabeth Weltmer? Mary’s dates are 1824-1902. I found them in Harrisburg Cem records. I have Christiana Hocker, born 1808 and died 1865 and she married Henry Landis. She is Martin Hocker and Christina Beinhower’s daughter. She is buried in the Salem United Brethren Church Cem in Clarksburg, penn. Christiana and Henry married 10-18-1825 (Lebanon Courier (Penn) marraige records). I also found an Abraham Landis who married eliz. Hocker in 1845 in the same records. Abraham and eliz. both of Dauphin Co, Penn. I have Henry B. Landis who died 4-1839 (age 49)and he lived in a cave in Dauphin Co by Swatara Creek (one mile from Hummelstown).. no mention of a wife.
    Had sons, Jacob, John, joseph and Henry. I was just trying to find the right Henry Landis. Anything might help.

    1. Daniel Hocker was the son of George and Elizabeth (Hassler) Hocker.

      Christiana Hocker was the daughter of Martin and Christiana (Beinhauer) Hocker. She married Henry Landis, who may have been the son of Henry Landis of Swatara. But there were a number of Henry Landis’ living in the general area near Derry Township at that time. I haven’t traced them all.

      I do not know who the Elizabeth Hocker who married Abraham Landis was. I’d need more information before I could determine her place in/relationship to the family.

        Henry Landis of Derry Township died 11-1785. Left to survive him: wife, Anna and sons, Feliz and Henry. Executors of his estate: Christian Stauffer and his brother’s son, John Landis.
        Abraham Landis of Paxtang Township, married Barbara Stauffer, d/o Christly/Christian Stauffer. V, Ann Landis was a widow and she did 3-1818. Children: Jacob died 1808; Christopher, Peter, John, and Elizabeth married Christopher Reeser and Ann Landis married John Reeser and Jacob Landis of Derry married Catherine ??. I found family for a Henry Landis in Swatara and he has a daughter Mary who married George Hocker and found family for Felix Landis plus more Landis info and LaNDIS RECORDS AT Hill Church Cem. Hope some of this helps.
