  1. Marilyn, to the best of my knowledge, George Hocker sold all of his Lancaster County land prior to settling on Erdenheim in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania where he died on 14 Oct 1821.

    He and his wife had 10 children:
    1. Johan George Hocker Jr. m. Mary Killenger/Kittenger
    2. Johannes Hocker m. Elizabeth Mason
    3. Martin Hocker m. Ann Mason
    4. Johan Adam Hocker m. Ann Dillet
    5. Elizabeth Hocker m. Henry Scheetz
    6. Jacob Hocker, d. at age 7
    7. Christopher Hocker m. Catharina Daub
    8. Jacob Hocker m. Sarah (___)
    9. Sarah Hocker, d. at age 17

    I am trying to locate who Johan GEORGE Hocker died c 1821/22 sold his land to in Clay Township, Lancaster Co., Penn. He owned 301 1/4 acres plus allowances. His land was next to his brother’s, Johan Adam Hocker. I have the land draft deed for both. and have located the land in Penn today.
    I have these children for George. Martin, Adam, Christopher, Elizabeth, Margaret who were living when George died. He also had children: George Jr., John and Jacob who had died.
    I have a marraige for Elizabeth Hocker (1769-1822) who married Henry Scheetz/Sheets Jr. (1761/1764 to 1848. Henry had DAR records and other family info. Eliz. married 2nd to William Acuff after Henry and had a daughter by him named Margaret Acuff. I have 2 children for Henry and Eliz.
    I have that George Hocker Jr. had a daughter, Anna who married Henry Daub. George Hocker Jr. married Mary ??. A Martin Kindig sold land to George Hocker Jr. in 1797 in Clay township.
    I am hoping to find out if any of George Hocker’s children got his land when he died or who did. Henry Sheetz was born and died in Montgomery Co, Penn as well.
