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.
On 2 Mar 1819 George Hocker, son of Johan Adam & Sophia Maria (Hershey) Hocker, and Magdalena Landis, daughter of Henry and Catharine (___) Landis, were married at Zion Lutheran Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. They were only married for six short years before she died in 1825. ∞

Happy birthday to Mary Magdalena (Landis) Hocker, wife of George Hocker. Molly was my 4G grandmother. She was born 4 Feb 1800 in Derry Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania and died 22 Feb 1825. ∞
Happy birthday, George Hocker! George was born 21 Jan 1794 in Harrisburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, a son of Johan Adam and Anna Maria (Hershey) Hocker Jr. He died 6 Nov 1873 in Swatara Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. He was my 4x great grandfather. ∞

I’m not completely certain of the folks in the photo, but I think it’s—Isabella (Smith) Hocker, Lillian (Leedy) Hocker, unknown teenager [possibly Lillian or Ethel Allen], Anna Hocker, William Hocker, Bonnie Hocker and Betty Jean Hocker.
Just the other day I had reason to go looking for the articles I had written on my research on John and Jacob Hocker, sons of my ancestor Johan Adam and Sophia Maria (Hershey) Hocker. I wanted to send links to someone who had emailed me regarding another Jacob Hocker, son of Adam and Eve […]
