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.
George Hocker, son of George and Elizabeth (Hassler) Hocker, was born 15 Sep 1810 and died 7 Jun 1872, possibly of typhoid fever. He was buried in Shoop’s Cemetery, Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. He married circa 1832 Mary “Polly” Brubaker, daughter of Peter and Anna (Hershberger) Brubaker.
