Levi Hocker (1824—1876)

Levi Hocker, son of George and Mary Magdelana (Landis) Hocker, was born 17 Jan 1824 and died 31 Oct 1876 in Swatara township, of a suicidal drowning. He went missing on 31 Oct 1876 and his body was found the following spring floating in the water at Fry’s dam. He was buried the following 29 April 1877. It is believed that the young deaths of two of his sons, and the mental instability of a third, prayed heavily on him and led to his suicide.
