  • Notes 
    • The following is from Steve Coulter:

      GEORGE MOCK, believed to be a son of Henry Mauck, born John George Mauck in
      Germany before 1743; died 1808 near Middletown, Frederick Co., VA; will
      written 13 Sept 1803; proved 4 Oct 1808 at Winchester, Frederick Co., VA.
      George Mock also arrived at Port Philadelphia on 18 Sept 1749 aboard the ship
      Ann. He settled in Lancaster County, PA, where he married on 21 April 1761
      at Warwick Settlement in Clay Township to Sophia Muller, 4th child of Johann
      Leonhardt Muller & Ana Maria ________; b. 6 May 1737 in Lancaster Co., PA;
      christened 30 May 1737 at East Cocalico, Lancaster Co., PA; died about 1821
      in Frederick Co., VA. George and Sophia belonged to the Emmanuel Lutheran
      church located near present-day Brickerville; at that time the church was
      known as the Warwick Congregation.
      About 1775, George & Sophia moved to the area of Middletown, Frederick Co.,
      VA. On 8 Sept 1775, he purchased 307-1/2 acres of land on Cedar Creek from
      William Vance. In his will, written 13 Sept 1803, and proved 4 Oct 1808 at
      Winchester, Frederick Co., VA, George Mock states his son George married a
      woman contrary to his wishes and was otherwise disobedient; he then leaves
      George Jr. only one dollar. This was a common practice when disinheriting
      children. If the child was not mentioned at all, he or she could sue the
      estate, claiming he or she was accidently omitted. George Jr's first child,
      our grandmother Rebecca, was born 8 May 1803. If George Sr. saw this baby
      granddaughter before he wrote his will four months later, you wonder how he
      could be so hard-hearted. He also disinherited his son Daniel, leaving him
      only one dollar. George Sr. mentioned owning land in both Frederick and
      Shenandoah Counties in Virginia. The remaining son, Christopher Mock,
      evidently didn't agree with the way his father's estate was divided. When
      Christopher died the following year, leaving a widow but no children, he
      bequeathed property to both his disinherited brothers.
      George's children are identified by his will as: Christopher, who died
      without children about 1809; GEORGE, who moved on to Montgomery Co., VA for
      several years, then died in Harrison Co., IN in 1837; Daniel, who moved on to
      Fairfield Co., OH, where he died by 1830; Catherina who married Jeremiah
      Eberly and whose descendants remain in the Shenandoah Valley to this day,
      Susannah who married Philip Setzer and settled in Warren Co., VA, dying
      before 1850; Christina who married Jacob Harmon and moved to Montgomery Co.,
      VA where she died in 1839. The descendants of brothers Daniel and George Jr.
      retained the surname spelling of Muck.
