Introduction

The variations in spelling of Mock and similar surnames (from Maag to Mug) are so numerous that little can be safely concluded even as to how many separate lines actually existed in the eighteenth century in this country. The descendants of Alexander Mack of Germantown, Pennsylvania, who was the founder in 1708 of the Brethren Church (then called the New Baptists) in Schwarzenau, Wittgenstein, had some associations with our Christian Mock. However, no kinship appears to have existed. Alexander's second son Johannes "John" Mack and his son William moved to Bedford County, where Christian lived most of his adult life, by 1804. There John and William, and the latter's sons, changed the spelling of their family name to Mock.
William’s daughter Elizabeth married John Holsinger, and their son George Mack Holsinger was the leader of the congregation of the Mock Dunkard Church built on land donated by Christian Mock, and to which his wife (at least) belonged. The ancestry of Alexander is known back four generations in Schriesheim, The Palatinate, and no records of other branches coming to this country have been discovered [Ankrum, 1943]. Thus it’s unlikely that Christian was a relative of Alexander, but as we don’t know the origin of Peter’s family in Europe we cannot be sure.
When I first researched my Mock ancestry years ago, I compressed three generations of Peter Mock into two -- a classic genealogical error! In order to keep these men straight in this narrative, I'm now calling them Peter Mock I, Peter Mock II, and Peter Mock/Mack III, although such appellations were never used in their time. The double surname reflects the reality that Peter III and his sons changed the spelling of their surname when they moved from Maryland to Ohio in the 1830s.
We have one source, an excerpt from an Indiana county history [Tyndall and Lesh, 1918] supplied to me 18 Nov 1996 by Dick D. Heller, which states that Peter Mock "was a native of Germany and died in Maryland". This comment was in a paragraph describing his son Samuel and granddaughter Sarah in Ohio, so we know that it refers to our Peter. (See their histories for the rest of that excerpt.)
In August of 1998 there came to my attention the existence of a German Bible which contained on the flyleaves names of the grandchildren of Peter, by his son Christian, and of one family of great-grandchildren, that of Christian's eldest son Reuben. While the details of the Bible inscriptions will be discussed under Christian's generation, below, it should be mentioned at this point that the Bible was printed 1765 in Nürnberg (at that time a free city of Europe). It therefore seems reasonable to postulate that Peter brought it with him from Germany sometime after that date. However, we have not found an immigration record for Peter, a not unusual circumstance for that time period.
Another invaluable record was found and published by Steve Lapp [Lapp, 1998] which greatly expanded my original view of Peter Mock's life. I believe, following Steve's suggestion, that the Peter Mack who with his wife Maria Magdalena Erb had a son Peter baptised 1767 is our Peter Mock. Now, as I extend my research to include the descents from other children of Peter, I find that his daughter Mary was almost certainly the centenarian who was born in 1769, not around 1779 as she claimed during her married life. Thus Peter I had two children close together, then a ten year period before the rest of his family started with daughter Elizabeth in 1779.
When Peter I sold land in 1783, his wife Elizabeth released her dowry. She was probably the mother of all of the rest of his children after Peter II and Mary. However, as discussed in more detail below, Peter I was buried in Baust Cemetery next to his wife Margaret, mentioned but not named in Chancery proceedings regarding his estate. This then results in the conclusion that Peter I had three wives: Maria Magdalena Erb, mother of Peter II and Mary, Elizabeth ____, who released her dowry in Washington County and who had six children, and Margaret ____, who was buried by Peter in the Baust Cemetery, Frederick County. That these three were all the wives of the same Peter will be demonstrated below as I report the details of our research on this lineage.

Peter Mock  &  Maria Magdalena Erb

Peter Mock was born 1726/1727 in Germany, died 3 Apr 1812 in Frederick, (now Carroll), Maryland and was buried in Baust Cemetery, Tyrone. 
Peter was married (1) to Maria Magdalena. 
Maria Magdalena Erb was born about 1734.  She was the daughter of Peter and Judith (____) Erb. 

Starting in the early eighteeth century, the surname Erb was prominent in southern Pennsylvania, and in the town of Silver Run, Maryland, located in what is now Carroll County. An excellent and exhaustive collection of Erb information for this area has been compiled by John Larkins www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/4085/. His information on the Maryland Hans Peter Erb, born 1710 in Germany, is at worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=jhlarkins&id=I412 8. The children in the family were Mary Magdalena, Peter, born b 17 Apr 1738, and Christopher, born 11 Jun 1748. These births were also in Germany since Peter immigrated in 1749.
18 Oct 1998], Peter Erb "late of Manheim Township, York County, Pennsylvania, now of Frederick County in the Province of Maryland" executed a deed of sale 27 Apr 1763 to Adam Shnaider of York County. This apparently marks the time of their move across the state line. (Manheim Township abuts the state line about 10 miles northeast of Silver Run.)
In Silver Run, this Peter Erb, later called Peter Sr. and Peter, Esqr., and his son Peter, Jr., born 1763, were prominent members of St. Mary's, a Union Church of the Lutheran and Reformed congregations which had been established in 1762. When the constitution of the church was renewed at the time of the erection of a new church building in 1812, Peter (or Beder), Jr. was named as President, and his father as witness. Peter, Esqr. made one of the largest contributions, $100, to the 1st subscription for funds in 1821, and $25 in the 2nd subscription that year.
The date stone in the end of the Christopher Erb house near Silver Run indicates that it was built in 1799 for Christopher and Peter Erb. This home is located at 3333 Flickinger Rd., and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's interesting that Christopher and his wife Anna Margaret do not appear in the records of St. Mary's church.
The two children of Peter and Maria Magdalena (Erb) Mock: Peter II and Mary Magdaline. 
1    Mock, Peter II was baptized 22 Feb 1767 in St. Mary's Ch., Silver Run, Frederick, Maryland and died after Sep 1835.  He was married to ____ ____. 
Peter II is listed in the intestate proceedings after his father's death as the eldest son of the family. He is assumed here (see the introduction above) to be the Peter Mack baptised by the Rev. Jacob Lischy who served congregations ranging from North Codorus Township, York County, Pennsylvania to Silver Run, Frederick (now Carroll) County, Maryland [Lapp, 1998]. Considering the 1821 records of Peter Mach/Mack in the St. Mary's Church of Silver Run, the latter locale is the most probable one for this baptism record.
It is of interest to note that Steve Lapp reported that an Elizabeth Dieter, widow, is also on the subscription list of St. Mary's Church in Silver Run, MD, along with Johannes, son of Peter Erb [Lapp, 1998]. In the next generation we'll see that she is the mother-in-law of Peter III.
Peter II probably appears in the 1810 Frederick County, Maryland, census as P. Mock, born 1765-1784, with a wife born in the same period. This isn't much help, as the range spans the baptismal date of Peter II almost to the probable birth year of Peter III. There was a female born 1785-1794 in his home, presumably a daughter, but we have no other record of this person.
Remember from above that Peter II was subject to the decree of Novermber, 1833 that his father's land on which he had been living must be sold, although we don't know exactly when that occurred, nor when he had to vacate the land. It is doubtful, however, that he ever owned land in Maryland other than that family estate, as no records of him have surfaced there.
In March of 1835, Peter Mock was one of the complainants, along with Jacob Erb, Barbara Hesson and others, in the sale at the late residence of Peter Halverstadt "by virtue of sundry writs of Fierifaces out of Frederick County Court" of 50 bushels of corn, a lot of cherry, poplar & maple boards & a lot of slabs, baskets, jugs, bottles, apple paring machine, etc.", seized and taken by the Sheriff [Anon., 1835]. This is one of the last records of a Peter Mock in Frederick County, and it's impossible to tell which Peter, II or III, was the complainant. This Jacob Erb was most probably a relative of Peter I's mother Maria Magdalena.
One record has surfaced in Ohio that possibly refers to Peter II, an 1840 census record for a Peter Mack in Seneca Township, Seneca County, Ohio, age 70-80 and thus born 1760-70. This fits perfectly for Peter II, who was 73 years old at that time. Since his son Peter III changed his surname to Mack when moving to Ohio, it's possible Peter II did also. The Seneca Peter's wife was born that same decade, and there were younger people in their home, a male and a female age 20-30, thus born 1810-20, and a female 5 to 10 years old. This appears to be a young couple and their child living with Peter, but I have no idea whether or not they were his family members. The young man could have been anywhere from 40 to 60 years younger then Peter Mack, so of an age to be either a son or grandson if related.
Seneca Township is southwest of the county seat of Tiffin, and includes the town of Berwick on the west, a portion of the town of McCutchenville, Wyandotte County, on the south, and contains Sandusky Creek running north on its eastern edge. Peter Mack and the younger man were censused in 1840 as farmers. Thirty-four years later, an 1874 map of the township shows neither Mocks nor Macks as landowners [freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~ohio/maps/1874/].
I would like to lay claim to that 1840 census as belonging to Peter Mock II, but considering the lack so far of any other record of him in Ohio, that has to be considered a tenuous claim at this time. In particular, we have no census record for him for 1820 or 1830, in either Maryland or Ohio. Land records may clarify this situation, but I've not yet searched for them. Seneca County is about 100 miles northeast of Darke and Miami Counties, Ohio, where we will see below that Peter III and his sons lived.
A careful search of the 1850 census index found no Peter Mack, nor any surname vaguely similar, in Seneca County, Ohio. Nor was there a Peter among the 239 Mocks and 315 Macks in Ohio as a whole. There was a 10 year old Laura Mack in Clinton, Seneca County, living with James and Priscilla Freeze, but there's no way of telling who she might have been. Clinton Township includes most of Tiffin, the county seat.
On the 1874 map of Jackson Township [op. cit.], in the northwest corner of Seneca County, an H. J. Mock is shown as the owner of the SE 1/4 of the SE 1/4 of Sec 23. T3N R13E. No related family names appear in the neighborhood, and there were no Mocks censused in Seneca County in 1870 or 1880. There are no structures appearing in that quarter-quarter section on the current USGS map, but interestingly enough, the next property north and two south appear in precisely the same locations over a century apart.
There is one record of a Mary Moch censused in Jackson Township, Seneca County in 1860. She was aged 66, and had real and personal property valued at $800 and $100, but no occupation. Living with her was an Andrew Moch, whose middle initial I can't read, aged 27, no occupation, and blind. Mary is shown as born 1793/94 in Pennsylvania, which if correct means she could not have been a daughter of Peter II.
A child of Peter II and ____ (____) Mock: Peter III. 
i    Mock / Mack, Peter III was born 1785/1786 in Maryland.  He was married to Elizabeth Dieter / Deter.  Elizabeth was born 1794/1795 in Maryland.  She was the daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (____) Deiter. 
Liber WR 37, Folio 103].
Marilyn Roth contributed, in response to my GenForum query, these two records for Peter III, citing [Mallick and Wright, 1992]:
Pvt. Peter Mock, b. ca. 1778, res. Darke Co., OH, 1855, served for part of September 1814 under Capt. Fonsten.
Fredk. Co., MD, Militia in the War of 1812: Peter Mock made bounty land claim 55-211975, rejected.
Liber WR 47, Folio 482], and 6 3/4 acres to Peter Galle on 13 May 1833 [Liber JS 42, Folio 459]. The Christopher addendum to Peter Erb’s name, which occurred every time his name was mentioned in the body of the deed, refers to his father’s given name, because there was another Peter Erb in the county of that generation. This Christopher Erb might have been the brother of Peter's gramdmother Maria Magdalena Erb, but could have been a later Christopher, as well.
On April 20, 1833, Peter and Elizabeth sold two parcels of the Durbins Mistake land. The first parcel of 12 3/4 acres went to Jacob Hingling for the sum of $265, and the second of 29 1/2 acres to Wm. Copenhaven for $159. I'm indebted to George Horvath, Jr., for bringing to my attention these deeds which I had not previously seen, and providing the meets and bounds for the first parcel.
115]. This is the last record we have of Peter Mock III in Maryland.
According to the Newberry Township census index, by 1835 two of Peter III and Elizabeth's sons, Simon and Jacob, were in Miami County, Ohio. Soon after, in 1837, Peter III purchased land in Wayne Township, Darke County, just a few miles to the west of his sons [courtesy Dec 2005 of a correspondant who wishes to remain anonymous].
There are four census records that can be identified as belonging to Peter Mock III: In 1820 he was in Taneytown, Frederick County, Maryland; by 1830 in Election District No. 6, Frederick, Maryland; and in 1840 and 1850 in Wayne Township, Darke County, Ohio.
The children of Peter and Elizabeth in these years can be compared side by side, where 1850 names and birth years in square brackets are taken from other records. Note that both the 1830 census and the military service record above have Peter born before 1780, but the fit to his known chidren seem to argue that this is the correct Peter, even if not the correct age for him. Elizabeth, likewise, has discordant census age records.
1820 Census    1830 Census      1840 Census       1850 Census

son    1825-30  son    1830-35   Levi       1828/29
dtr    1830-35  [Elizabeth Margaret]

Elizabeth Margaret's name comes from an abstract of her mother's will recorded 7 Oct 1850 (see below), where she and the four siblings shown in the above table were identified as the only living heirs of Peter and Elizabeth in 1850. Since the sons are listed in the will in order of age, it's probable that the daughters (named as Eliza Waggamon and Elizabeth Margaret Mack) were, also, hence the placement above of Eizabeth Margaret as the youngest of the children.
The three unnamed children, daughters born 1804-10 and 1815-20, and son 1825-30, are assumed to have died before the first census in which they are missing, but it is possible that any of the three could have been married before their deaths and hence not show in these census records of Peter and Elizabeth.
The parents of Elizabeth were named as Elizabeth and Jacob "Deider" in the last land sale mentioned above. The Widow Elizabeth "Dieter" was a subscriber to the new St. Mary's Church in Silver Run, Maryland, in 1821, along with Peter Mack [Lapp, 1998]. (That's the congregation where Peter Mock II was baptised in 1767.) And, on her tombstone in Ohio her name was carved as "wife of Jacob Deter". The German name of Dieterich was most likely the name of Jacob when he immigrated, the "ich" being dropped by most familes in the early years, and the spelling varying among the descendants, sometimes even among adult children in one family, to include Dieter, Deter, Deeter, Deeder, Teeter and Teter. I'm retaining the earliest and latest versions on record for Elizabeth, and using the earliest for her husband Jacob.
Jacob Dieter's land lay about two miles due east of the land of Peter Mock I. Called Resurvey on Locust Neck, it comprised 89 1/2 acres surveyed to Jacob in 1793. A detail from a work map provided to me by George Horvath, Jr., below, shows Jacob's land laid out on a tax map of Carroll County. In the bottom of the figure is my plot of both Jacob's and Peter's parcels on a USGS topographical map of the Taneytown area. The waterway running southwest between these two parcels of land is Big Pipe Creek, north of which, somewhere near Taneytown, is land of Henry Beamer, who married Elizabeth, the eldest daughter of Peter Mock I.

Jacob Deter land

Elizabeth Deter wife of Jacob Deter died 7-27-1845 ae 77y 9m 23d was buried in the Stoner Cemetery in Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio, where several of her grandchildren were later buried. A footstone on her grave reads "F. M.".
An abstract of the will of Elizabeth "Jr." was provided to me Dec 2004 by LaVeryl Andrews, a lookup volunteer in Darke County. This provides a definitive identification of their children still living in 1850. That there were others who died young can be surmised from the census records above, and from the observation that only four children born over 27 years would be very unusual. A copy of the will has been ordered 5/5/2005.
Mack, Elizabeth - book 1845-1847, page 66 Dated 19 June 1850 - Recorded 7 October 1850 Sons: Simon Mack, Jacob Mack, Levi Mack (not married at the time of will) Daughters: Eliza Waggamon, Elizabeth Margaret Mack (not married at time of will) Executor: Joseph Wolf Signed: Elizabeth (x-mark) Mack Witnesses: John Bigham and Joseph Wolf
The eight children of Peter III and Elizabeth (Dieter / Deter) Mock / Mack: ____, Simon, Jacob, ____, Eliza, ____, Levi and Elizabeth Margaret. 
1    Mack, ____ was born before 1810. 
2    Mack, Simon was born 1811/1813 in Maryland.  He was married to Sarah Wagaman 1838 in Ohio.  Sarah was born 1819/1822 in Ohio, died Jul 1865 and was buried in Stoner Cemetery, Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio.  She was the daughter of Christian and Catherine (____) Wagaman. 
Simon is documented as the son of Elizabeth Mack in her Will written 19 Jun 1850, the same year he and Sarah were censused four households away from Elizabeth and his father Peter, in Wayne Township, Darke County, Ohio. His first appearance in the state was on the 1835 "census", actually more of a tax list, in Newberry Township, Miami County, a few miles to the east. He doesn't appear in the 1840 census, so it's difficult to know exactly when he moved across the county line.
In that 1850 census [Series: M432 Roll: 674 Page: 305], Simon was recorded as a Mill Right aged 38 with land valued at $400, he born in Maryland, and Sarah and the four children in Ohio. Sarah was 28 that year and the children were Nancy, 11, Fielding, 9, Malinda, 7, and Jackson, 5. In 1860 Simon was censused in Wayne Township again as a Mill Right with wife Sarah and children Malinda, Jackson and Matilda. His age was indexed as 50, but the first digit of the census entry itself was smeared and completely illegible. Sarah's age that year was recorded as 40, Malinda 16, Jackson 15 and Matilda 6.
After Sarah died in 1865, Simon went west. In 1870 he was living alone, aged 57, in Chaska, Carver Township, Montana. His occupation there was given as Millwright Carpenter. In 1880 he was in Halls Prairie, Coos County, Oregon, aged 68, and listed as a farmer living alone.
Wally Garchow pointed out to me [Personal Communication, 2004] that Elizabeth Boyer, who died 1852 age 77, was buried in Stoner Cemetery between Fealder and Sarah Elleanoer Mack, children of Simon and Sarah, according to the inscriptions of the Stoner Cemetery in Darke County [Anita Short, op. cit.]:
Boyer, Elizabeth w/o D. Boyer d. 5-1-1852 ae 77y 8m 8d
This Elizabeth, born 23 Aug 1774, was of the generation of the grandparents of Simon's wife Sarah Wagaman, born 1819/22, and might give a clue to Sarah's lineage.
In 1820 in Miami county there were two Boyer families, Jacob and Lewis, censused adjacent to each other in Spring Creek Twp., 28 more families in Ohio overall, none in Darke County.

The seven children of Simon and Sarah (Wagaman) Mack: Nancy, Fealder or Fielding†, Malinda, Jackson, Zachariah†, Matilda Jane† and Sarah Ellenor†. 
i    Mack, Nancy was born 3 May 1839 in Webster, Darke, Ohio, died 18 Feb 1901 in Norway, Coos, Oregon and was buried 20 Feb 1901 in Norway Cemetery, Coos County, Oregon.  She was married to John R. Radabaugh 18 Apr 1858 in Webster, Darke County, Ohio.  John R. was born 15 Feb 1828 in Webster, Darke, Ohio, died 3 Apr 1898 in Norway, Coos, Oregon and was buried in Norway Cemetery, Coos County, Oregon.  He was the son of James and Susan (Price) Radabaugh. 
The particulars of this family are from a web page entitled [Descendants of James Radabaugh]. They carried the descendants down to the fourth generation.
Nancy and John had gone west before 1880, as they were censused in Coos County, Oregon, that year:

Nancy's family had a tendency to vary their given names. Andrew Jackson was listed as J. Andrew in his parents home in 1880, and John Henry was censused as Henry J. in his own home in 1900. Even Nancy's daughter-in-law, Henry's wife, was Laura M. in 1900 and May L. in 1910.

Joseph was censused 1910 in the same precinct [Series: T624 Roll: 1280 Page: 166], but the census was so poorly copied that it was difficult to read all of the names. He and his wife were 51 and 38 years of age, they had daughters (possibly Merle, Hazel and Flossie) 17, 15 and 6 years old, a son Herman J., 4 years old, and a son Jackson a few months old.
In 1920 [Series: T625 Roll: 1493 Page: 195], the couple were 60 and 47 years old, a daughter Hazel was 23, Flossie A. was 16, Herman J. 14, and Reuben S. 10. How Jackson was transformed into Reuben S. I don't know.
2    Radabaugh, Andrew Jackson was born 9 Dec 1860 in Webster, Darke, Ohio, died 14 Sep 1943 in Coos County, Oregon and was buried in Norway Cemetery, Norway, Coos, Oregon. 
In 1910, Andy J. Radabauch was censused in the household adjacent to his brother Henry. He was 49, single, a farmer, and he and his paents were born in Ohio.
3    Radabaugh, Simon Albert was born 19 Jan 1863 in Webster, Darke, Ohio, died 13 Dec 1885 in Oregon? and was buried in Norway Cemetery, Norway, Coos, Oregon.

In 1910, Henry was censused in the adjacent household to "Andy J. Radabauch", 49. He was 45, and his wife May L. was 35, and they had been married 17 years. That datum enables us to be sure that Laura M. and May L. were the same person. This time May's parents' birthplaces were recorded as Virginia and Illinois.

(____) Derr. 
Jacob was censused 1850 in Wayne Township, Darke County, as a farmer with land valued at $1200. Son Noah was censused as 1/12 years of age. Leah was censused 1860 in Newberry Township, Miami County, in the home of John and Mary A. Derr (indexed as Deer). It is reasonable that these were her parents, especially since Leah named her daughter Mary Ann. Her mother's age might have been 57, but the entry was nearly illegible.

The Miami Valley Genealogical Index, which lists Levi's burial in some (unidentified) cemetery in Darke County, gives "ca 1823" for his birth, determined from his gravestone. Probably from an age at death, but not specified.
The three children of Levi and Lucinda (____) Mack: Lewis J., William H. and Nancy. 
i    Mack, Lewis J. was born 1855/1856 in Ohio.  He was married to Sarah Rhoades.  Sarah was born Jun 1863 in Ohio. 
Since both sons were at home in 1880, and both had died before the 1900 census, neither was censused in his own home. However, the census of Sarah Mack, widow and farmer, is almost surely that of a daughter-in-law of Levi and Lucinda. There's no direct way to tell which son was her husband, but from Jennie's birth we can surmise that Sarah was married in 1882 or 1883, at which time William Mack would have been at most 16 years old. Therefore I conclude that Sarah was the wife of Lewis. And in fact, a marriage record does exist for L. J. Mack to S. E. Rhoades on 11 Feb 1883 in Darke Co., Ohio!

Jennie Mack, reportedly born about 1890 in Versailles, Wayne Township, Darke County, married in 1917 an Alzona Sherrick, born in the same town [IGI submitted record]. I'm accepting this record for Jennie, although the date of birth is considerably in error (a not uncommon occurrence for submitted IGI marriage records).
Alzona and Jennie were censused 1920 in Wayne Township living adjacent to Alzona's father Jacob, all born in Ohio of Ohio born parents. From the ten year gap between the first two daughter, one could surmise that there were other children born who died young.

1920 Census, Wayne Darke OH

According to an online report, Levi Mack, was buried in Abbotsville Cemetery, Van Buren Township, Darke County, Ohio, on 3 Oct 1963 at age 78 [www.calweb.com/~wally/darke/burials/query004.htm]. That is precisely the right age for, and is thus assumed to be the record of, this Levi.
3    Mack, Ruth was born Aug 1892. 
ii    Mack, William H. was born 1865/1866 in Ohio. 
There is a marriage record for a William H. Mack to Nellie Cooper on 12 Nov 1885. However, that took place in Huron County, Ohio, half way across the state from Darke County. This could have been Levi's son, but more research would be necessary to establish that with any certainty.
iii    Mack, Nancy was born 1871 in Darke County, Ohio. 
Nancy's birth year is from the 1900 census of her mother, and the year and place come also from an extracted IGI record citing Records of birth, marriage and death, 1817-1911, Ohio, Probate Court (Darke County).
8    Mack, Elizabeth Margaret was born 1830/1835. 
2    Mock, Mary Magdaline was born Dec 1769 in Frederick, Maryland and died 12 Jun 1872 in Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland.  She was married (1) to ____ Gouger.  She was married (2) to George B. Fox 20 Oct 1815 in Washington Co., Maryland. 
ndex to Marriage Records]. Gouger and Gowger are only two of the some half dozen spellings of that surname.
There were two Gougers censused 1820 in Taneytown, Frederick County, Jacob and Peter, both born between 1775 and 1783. However, both of these men had children up until at least 1825, so neither could have been the husband of Mary who remarried in 1815. I have not been able to determine the given name of Mary's first husband. Parenthetically, Mary's niece Margaret Mock, of our line, married David Burger Teeter. David's second cousin, John W. Deeter, married as his second wife Sarah J. Goucher. This marriage took place 13 May 1854, when John was 40 years old, in Darke County, Ohio.
We do know however from the estate papers that Mary's second husband was George Fox. There were several of that name and of various ages in Frederick and Washington Counties, and sorting among them is difficult. Two, however, are recognizable from the 1830 to 1850 District 10, Frederick County censuses as father and son who lived in Foxville, 12 miles east of Hagerstown, Washington County and 18 miles west of Taneytown. Their wives names are both known [GedForum postings], and so the son, born 1795, can be excluded as being Mary's second husband.
Another George Fox is a little more difficult to make out. He was censused in District 8 of Frederick County (which I haven't been able to locate) 1820 through 1840, but not in 1850. He was born 1770 through 1773, and the eldest female in his household seems to have been born 1790 to 1793. However, younger individuals in his household were born starting before 1800, so the family composition is pretty much uncertain, but possibly that of a widower with children and a second, young wife.
The most likely, although unproven, George is the one living in Hagerstown, Washington County. Peter Mock had been in Washington County from the time of its erection in 1776 until the early 1790s, so the family had ties to that town. The most telling evidence, however, is that this George Fox's wife was indeed named Mary. The two were censused 1830 and 1840 in Hagerstown, with several children who we will try below to identify. George was born 1770/80, and Mary 1780/90, in each of those censuses. In 1850 George was censused as born 1781/82 and 1780/81, respectively. Also in their household that year were Harriet McDaniel, 14, and May J. Fox, 10. Since May was listed after Harriet, that indicates she was not a daughter of George and Mary.
The later censuses, however, tell a complex but interesting story. Here are three censuses for what is clearly the same household, although the relationships are not crystal clear:
IMAGE: Maryland].
Whatever the family relationships, note that Mary Fox aged 22 years between 1860 and 1870! Compare that with her obituaries, apparently confirming the older age first evidenced in 1870:
Hagerstown, Maryland, Friday, June 21, 1872 and The Examiner, Frederick, Maryland, Wednesday, July 3, 1872; republished on midmdroots.freewebspace.com/newspapers]. Note that Mary's mother was Maria Magdalene, so Mary was a "Junior".
If I didn't want to dispute a centenarian's claim, I would have to conclude that Mary didn't want to appear a decade older than her husband, but dropped the 40 year old masquerade after she became a widow sometime in the 1860s. On the other hand, the census record of 1830 indicates that Mary had two daughters after 1820, that is, after her claimed age of 50. This is somewhat far out on the curve. The chart below shows some statistical distributions of the age of a mother at the birth of her first through fourth child, gathered from some 280,000 reasonably well documented birth records. Note that children born after a mother's age of 50 are almost vanishingly rare.

Ages of Mothers at birth of children

MD, Militia in the War of 1812', by Sallie A. Mallick & F. Edward Wright, 1992, Family Line Publications, Westminster, MD.] Contributed by Marilyn Roth in response to my posted query on GenForum. Mary's husband-to-be George was about 30 years old at that time, but as mentioned above there were many George Foxes in Frederick and Washington Counties.
Below are five early Hagerstown, Washington County, Maryland, censuses for George Fox. I believe from the correspondance of ages and the location that the George born before 1774 is father of the George who had married Mary (Mock) Gouger in 1815, both shown in 1820 as born 1774-1794. There was also another elderly male in the household in 1820. Comparing the 1820 and 1830 censuses, the four females born before 1820 were presumably Gouger daughters of Mary, the last two children those of Mary and George.
IMAGE: 1820-1860.jpg
George Fox censuses 1820-1860

By 1830, George and Mary were in their own home, the three eldest daughters of 1820 census now away, presumabl married (as Gougers or as Foxes?). There were two more daughters by that time under the age of ten (but no sons). In 1840, apparently two more children had left home, but there was now a male in the household born 1820-25, and two girls under five years of age.
By 1850, when given names first become available, most of the folks had gone from the family. But this census and that of 1860 and later (see above) are very difficult to interpret. Who is the George Fox of 1860 born 1822/23? He fits the age of the male appearing in the 1840 census, but where was he in 1830 and 1850? In 1870 he was shown as born 1821/22, and 1880 as born 1818/19.
I'm going to make the assumption that George and Mary's son George (the third) was born early in 1820 (before the census that year), and rearrange the Fox records as follows, ignoring male age discrepancies:
IMAGE: 1820-60_Fox.jpg
Children of George Fox

This leads to a different set of questions. Where was George in 1850 and, if he was married by 1840, where was his wife? It's possible to connect these individuals under the assumption that George, born early in 1820, was married, had two daughters (Mary H. and May J.) and was widowed by the time of the 1840 census. Then George and his elder daughter Mary H. are missing in 1850, but his younger daughter remained living with her grandparents. Then George was back by 1860, with daughter Mary and grandson John, to take care of his parents as they were getting into their 80s.
With this interpretation, Mary and George Fox had four children, so she must have had six Gouger children before the four born after, say, 1808 of the 1820 census. That would lead to a marriage about 12 years earlier, i.e. 1796. If Mary was born 1769 that's no problem, but if 1779, then she married quite early.
Mary (Mock) Gouger Fox, centenarian?
I have not entered 14 children into my database, since I have no names for anyone except George, Jr. (or III). In summary, however, the ten Gouger children were born about 1798 through 1814, the four Fox children 1816 through 1822 (all years very approximate), most if not all in Hagerstown, Washington County.
A child of George B. and Mary Magdaline (Mock) Fox: George. 
i    Fox, George was born 1820 in Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland. 
George was born probably before 1820, married and had two daughters, and was a widower before mid 1840.

Peter Mock  &  Elizabeth ____
Peter 1 , Christian 2 , Margaret 3 Top  

Peter Mock was born 1726/1727 in Germany, died 3 Apr 1812 in Frederick, (now Carroll), Maryland and was buried in Baust Cemetery, Tyrone. 
Peter was married (2) to Elizabeth. 
Elizabeth ____ . 

In 1778, “The Worshipfull John Stull’s Returns” for Washington County, Maryland, listed Peter Mock, together with George, Isaac, Jacob and Peter Sharer, as having sworn to the Oaths of Fidelity [Brumbaugh, 1924]. Since Peter’s son Christian married Mary Shearer, it is not unlikely that one of these four was her father. The names of all five of these men can be recognized in an undated Washington County list of Capt. Jacob Sarer’s Company which included (spellings copied exactly) Lietn. George Sarer, Sergt. Isaac Sharer, Peter Mock in the 5th class, and Peter Sarer in the 7th [Clements and Wright, 1987; citing MD Hist. Soc. MS 1146]. We also have a copy of Card Number 37440455 for Peter Mock in “Capt. Jacob Sarer’s Compy as now classe’d: – Washington County Militia 1777, Revolutionary War” (Original described as "Certified copy of an original record in the Western Shore Land Office of Maryland").
vol. 3, no. 4, 1987; citing Liber C, Folio 253]. Elizabeth Mock is recorded as having relinquished her dowry in that land, this being the only record we have of her name. Jerusalem Town, later Funk’s Town, was 2.5 miles southeast of Elizabeth Town, now Hagerstown, on Antietam Creek. It had 50 dwellings and a German Church in 1797 [Morse, Jedidiah, The American Gazetteer, 1797].
vol. 8, no. 2, Apr 1992]. Ringgold’s Manor was a seventeen thousand acre land-holding south and east of Hagerstown. Samuel Ringgold, son of Thomas “Tench” and Mary (Galloway) Ringgold, and his wife Mary, daughter of Gen. John Cadwalader, had earlier purchased this land, and moved around 1792 from Kent County, MD to Fountain Rock, near Hagerstown. The mansion Gen. Ringgold erected there, on the road from Boonsboro to Williamstown, was later converted into St. James’ College [Scharf, 1882].
That Peter Mock was not censused 1790 in Maryland (nor in Franklin, York or Lancaster Counties across the Pennsyvnaia border) is curious, but not of serious concern.
MD Land Records, Liber WR 11, Folio 615]. He continued to own this land until his death in 1812 (see below). We believe the Peter earlier in Washington County to be this same Peter, because the Frederick County Peter Mock’s son Samuel is reported in later years to have been born in Hagerstown, by the Washington County military connection to the Sarer/Shearers, the family into which Peter's son Christian later married, and because Peter Mock records doen't appear in Frederick and Washington counties simultaneously. However, since he was described on this deed as being of Frederick County, he must have moved back the county prior to June 1793.
Westminster, MD, courtesty of Marilyn Roth].
In 1800 in the Taney Town District #5 of Frederick County, Peter and his wife were censused with two sons born before 1784, one son and three daughters born 1784-90, and a son born after 1790. These data will be used below in determining the order of birth of some of Peter's children.
The 1810 census in Frederick County, Maryland is sadly defective in that the census taker used only initial letters for given names, and failed to record the township names. P. Mock (over 45 years) was listed several pages after another P. Mock (25-45). The first of these records is presumably Peter I, then of age 84, while the second might be Peter II, who was then about 39 years of age.
The record here of Peter I’s death in 1812 is from a photograph of his tombstone in the Baust Church Cemetery in Tyrone, Uniontown Township, Frederick (now Carroll) County, Maryland. This town is five miles east of Taneytown and six miles west of Westminster, along what was at one time called the “Plank Road”. The inscription reads "In memory of Peter Mock who departed this life April 3 1812 in 85 years of his age". This enables us to determine his birth year as 1726/27. The Baust Church was organized sometime before 1794, and the building was used jointly by the Lutheran and Reformed congregations. It was renamed Emanuel Church in 1868 when the building was thoroughly repaired and remodeled [Scharf, 1882].
A panoramic photograph shows a beautifully maintained, unfenced cemetery on a grassy hillside next to the church.

In that same cemetery is buried Margaret Mock, whose headstone stands next to that of Peter and is of the same design (although the lower third of the stone is missing). A difficulty with her reported death date has been resolved. Sharf, in Western Maryland Genealogy, 1882, reported it as 2 Jan 1815, presumably from a reading of this headstone. The Carroll County Genealogical Society in July of 1996 at my request cleaned and photographed the stones of Margaret and Peter Mock. Hers very clearly reads “Margret Mock who departed this life Januarey 2 1813 in 64 year of her Age”. That’s 1813, not 1815. The Society also supplied me with a cemetery listing made in 1982 by Susan Ruddick Bloom who recorded the date as "Februey 2 1813"
We know Peter Mock’s wife was alive at the time of his death in 1812, and was herself deceased by 7 Apr 1814, all from court papers discussed below which, however, do not give her name. This revised stone date now allows us to accept Margaret as Peter I’s wife. Since we know from a Washington County land record that the name of Peter’s second wife in 1783 was Elizabeth, Margaret must have been his (much younger) third wife. When Elizabeth died and where she is buried we don’t know. Since our Christian was born nine months before the land record naming Elizabeth, we do know that he was her son.
Almost two years after Peter I’s death, his family petitioned the Frederick County court to partition the estate, consisting of parts of a tract of Land called “The Resurvey on Brothers Agreement”, among the heirs, if possible, or else to make a valuation of the estate as a whole† This and the following discussion are based on copies of court papers obtained from the Maryland Archives: 7 Feb 1814 Petition and Order appointing a commission, 18 and 21 June the commissioners signed their oaths, 30 Jul 1814 Report of the commissioners, 10 Mar 1825 Agreement among the heirs to rescind their earlier agreement, undated Bill of Complaint that the bonds were not paid, and 13 Nov 1833 Decree that the estate be sold. Frederick County Circuit Court (Equity Papers) Box 55, No. 1181, Magdalena Mock and others vs. Peter Mock and others, 1814-1833 (1-72-14-55).†. (This source material first came to my attention from the work of Marianne Johnson, who published some of this information [Johnson, 1993].) They could not do this privately, because two of the heirs were the minor children of Peter’s daughter Elizabeth, who had predeceased her father. In such a circumstance, it was legally necessary to have the court act so as to protect the rights of the minors, even though their father, Henry Beamer, was living. This 7 Feb 1814 petition states that Peter’s (unnamed) widow, shortly after his demise, herself died. The genealogically relevant paragraphs read:
"To the Honourable the Judges of Frederick County Court now sitting
"The Petition of Peter Mock (the Younger), Christian Mock, Samuel Mock, Abraham Mock, Mary Gouger, Teater Bishop and Catherine his Wife, Magdalena Mock, and John Beamer and Catherine Beamer Infants under the age of Twenty one years by Henry Beamer their Guardian, humbly shuoth[?] unto your honours –
"That a certain Peter Mock Senior now deceased, was in his life time Scised and Possessed in fee simple of a real Estate lying in Frederick County aforesaid consisting of parts of a tract of Land called "The Resurvey on Brothers Agreement" containing for said part Three hundred and fifty acres more or less with the appurtenances, That being so scised and possessed of the said Lands the said Peter Mock Senior died scised and possessed thereof intestate in or about the month of april in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and twelve, leaving a widow who is now dead and your Petitioners Peter Mock, Christian Mock, Samuel Mock, Abraham Mock, Mary Gouger, Catherine Bishop, Magdalena Mock, his children – That the said intestate had in his life time one other child named Elizabeth who was married to your petitioner Henry Beamer, which said Elizabeth died intestate in the lifetime of the intestate leaving your petitioners John Beamer, and Catherine Beamer her children and heirs at Law. That the children and Grand children above named are the heirs at Law of the said intestate Peter Mock Senior deceased."
The court duly commissioned five “discrete” freeholders of the County, David Kephart, Joseph Taney, Sr., Jacob Yon or Yaun, Frederick Black, and John Crapster in response to this petition. These men took their oaths “Well and truly and without favour partiality or prejudice to adjudge and determine whether the Estate” could be divided without loss to the heirs, or else to value it. They met on the “Resurvey on Brothers Agreement” property, itself, 21 June of that year, decided it could not be so divided without loss to the heirs, and established the value of the 347 3/4 acres and appurtances as $12,175.25, or exactly $35 per acre. Their report was dated 30 Jul 1814 and filed 9 Aug 1814.
Given this conclusion by the commission, Peter II, as the eldest son, was entitled to take the land for himself, which he did. But this also entailed the requirement that he sign bonds to pay the other heirs each their share of the estate (in the case of Elizabeth’s children, to be divided between them). From later court papers we know that Peter signed these bonds 15 Feb 1815, but copies of the bonds themselves have not been seen, so we don’t know the terms of payment they required. Whatever those terms, however, they were never met. For we find a 10 Mar 1825 agreement, signed by all of the heirs except Samuel and the grandchildren, in which Peter II paid five dollars to each of his siblings for which they agreed to relinquish their claims to the original agreement. Peter, on his part, gave up his claim to the estate, on which he was living, and agreed to come in equally with the others for his part.
A later complaint by the heirs spelled out that he had never made good on his bonds, and the others agreed that in fact “it was totally out of his power” to do so. This would seem to be a not unusual circumstance, for a Western Maryland farm in those days was not necessarily a cash producing enterprise. It might well have sufficed to keep Peter and his family well off, but not so as to enable him to pay off over $10,000 in bonds. In any event, the court 13 Nov 1833 ordered that the real estate be sold and that Benjamin Price be appointed trustee on bond of $8000 to carry out the sale. The record of this sale has not been seen, so we don’t know how much the heirs ever collected on their inheritance from their father. But, for twenty years, Peter II had the living of the family estate.
The other result of these court documents is that we have a primary source naming the children in the family, as well as evidences of the daughters’ marriages and where they lived. Samuel and Abraham, for example, are described in the complaint that led to the sale order, sometime between 1825 and 1833, as living in Ohio. And at the same time Christian is described as living in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. This provides part of the documentary evidence that Peter of Maryland was the father of our Christian.
Paul Westenbarger in his 1787 will named Peter Maugh as the husband of his eldest daughter. I believe that this man was in fact Peter Mock, and that the daughter was Elizabeth, his second wife and mother of Christian Mock, our ancestor. The arguments for this are threefold:
Paul Westenbarge, born May 1727 and immigrated 1744, lived two miles from where Peter Mock and his wife Elizabeth sold a lot on 1 Mar 1783 in Jerusalem Town, later Funk’s Town and then Funkstown, Washington County, MD.
Paul Westenbarger's son Paul, when he separated from his wife, sold his share of the homestead to Jacob Sharer in 1801. That is the same name, but probably the next generation, of the man who signed the Oaths of Fidelity in 1778 with Peter Mock, and who was Captain of the company in which Peter Mock served in the Washington County Militia of 1777. The wife of Peter Mock's son Christian was Mary Shearer, and this is the same surname spelled somewhat differently.
Finally, I have been unable to find any record of a family withe the surname Maugh in that part of Maryland in that time period.
While these arguments are all circumstantial in nature, I feel that it is quite plausible that the scribe who recorded Paul's will spelled the name Mock as "Maugh". It is on this basis that I would like to record the name of Paul Westenbarger's eldest daughter Elizabeth as the second wife of Peter Mock.
Peter and Elizabeth Mock's first child was Elizabeth, born 2 Sep 1779, so their marriage was in 1778 or before. Peter's second child Mary Magdaline, by his first wife Maria Magdalena Erb, was born 1769, so his second marriage, to Elizabeth, could have been any time in that near decade, but most likely near the end.
The birth years of the children of Peter I are reasonably well known from their own censuses as adults and from tombstone ages at death. This leaves the interpretation of Peter's two available censuses, 1800 and 1810, somewhat difficult to decipher. First, I'll list here his children and the years of their births, where some are plus or minus one:
By Maria Magdalena: Peter II 1767 Mary Madeline 1769
By Elizabeth: Elizabeth 1779 Christian 1782 Catherine 1783 Magdalena 1785 Samuel 1787 Abraham 1790 Peter Mock was censused 1800 in Taneytown, Frederick County, and P. Mock in the same county (no township listed) in 1810. In both cases, Peter and his wife were born before 1755, which in the case of Peter we know to be true, and which is reasonable for Elizabeth whose first child was born in 1779. In 1800 they had in their home 2 males born 1774-1784, 1 male and three females 1784-1790, and one male 1790-1800. Three of the males correspond to Christian, Samuel and Abraham, but that leaves a second male born after 1774 who is unknown. It's possible that Peter I was listed in the wrong bracket, and we don't find a census for him away from home, but that's just a guess. The three females should correspond to Elizabeth, Catherine and Magdalena, but the ages aren't correct. I don't know quite what to make of this. We'll see below that if Mary married Peter Gouger, she was probably married before 1800, but if she married Jacob Gouger, she also should be home with her parents but doesn't appear.
In 1810 P. Mock had in his home a female born 1764-1784, one born 1784-1794, and a male and female born 1800-1810. All of Peter's daughters were married by that time, so who these people were is completely unknown. His three sons born in the 1780s weren't married by 1810, but were not at home nor censused themselves as far as I have been able to find.
The six children of Peter and Elizabeth (____) Mock: Elizabeth, Christian, Catherine, Magdalena, Samuel and Abraham. 
1    Mock, Elizabeth was born 2 Sep 1779, died 1 Nov 1805 in Taneytown Distr., Frederick, Maryland and was buried in Reformed Church, Cemetery, Taneytown.  She was married to Henry Beamer 2 Jun 1801 in Trinity Lutheran, Taneytown, Frederick, Maryland.  Henry was born 1772/1779 in Frederick, Maryland and died 1824 in Frederick.  He was the son of Johann Phillip and Susan Elizabeth (____) Beamer. 
Elizabeth died intestate before her father according to his intestate proceedings of 1814, leaving her husband Henry Beamer and two children, John and Catherine Beamer. Henry Beamer was still living at that time, but was not named in the 1825 document. Her death occurred six days after the birth of her daughter Elizabeth, who in turn died within a few months.
My knowledge of the Beamer lineage comes from Pat Newton and Donna Thomas, to both of whom I'm grateful for their sharing of the results of years of research on their part.
Nov 2004]:
"I am a descendant of Henry Beamer and his second wife, Magdalena Shank. Elizabeth Mack died, apparently after childbirth in 1805, and Henry remarried a few years later.
"I can supply you with Henry's father and siblings, but not much further back than that. I am delighted to find out something about Elizabeth Mack. She is buried, with Henry's parents, and an infant daughter, in the Reformed Church Cemetery in Taneytown, MD."
According to Pat, a marriage record from the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Taneytown, reads "With agreement and consent of both parents, Heinrich Bamer and Elizabeth Mack, both single, in Frederick County, June 2, 1801". An extracted IGI record also gives this marriage of Elizabeth and Henry.
Nov 2004] that discrepancies were found in "Names in Stone" for some entries. Her readings of the stones, written in German:
Susan E. Beamer was born in January 1734 and died September 1804 Phillip Beamer was born in 1729 and died in 1806 (no change) Elizabeth Beamer was born 2 September 1779 and died 1 November 1805 (no change) Elizabeth Beamer was born 26 October 1805 and died 1806
Correction of the 26 Oct date from the published 1806 to 1805 clarifies things considerably. I'm adopting those dates for the Elizabeths, mother and daughter, as well as those of Henry's parents, Phillip and Susan.
Donna also wrote that Henry sold land Jan 1824, and that his widow sold land May 1824, hence the death year I've specified here for Henry.
Henry's parents and uncle Johan Adam Beamer immigrated to Philadelphia on the "Neptune" and took the oaths 23 Sep 1751. He may also have had uncles Jacob and Conrad Beamer, according to various researchers, but these have not been proven. The children of Johann Phillip Beamer, and of those of Henry and Magdalena, are documented through deeds of land patented by Johann Phillip in 1760 and 1762 and passed on through two more generations.
Henry's namesake, Johann Henrich Böhmer, emigrated on the "Rowand" which qualified 29 Sep 1753 [members.cox.net/hessen/ships.htm]. We don't know that there was a relationship of that man with Henry's father (or with Jacob or Conrad), but the possibility remains.
Donna notes the following land connections:
"Philip Beamer patented land called "Red Land" in Frederick County, MD in 1760 and land called "Frog Meadow", same county, 1762. This area is on the north side of Great Pipe Creek near Taneytown. In 1798 census he had 98 acres and a log cabin. (1798 tax assessment for Frederick County )
"Phillip's will dated 4 Dec 1802 names his children as Elizabeth Calf, John Beamer, Mary Ocher and Henry Beamer, the latter being his executor. In addition, heirs Philip and Elizabeth Summers, probably the children of his daughter Catherine, were named.
"Henry Beamer and wife Magdalena sold land for debt.
"Magdalena Beamer, widow of Henry Beamer sold land to George and Philip Shriner. This was listed as part of Frog Meadows.
"The deed transfer at the time of Magdalena's death ties in most of the children of his marriage to Magdalena ... Henry, Jacob, Phillip and Samuel
"Henry was recorded as Guardian for John Beamer in a mortgage agreement of 1823, the land consisting of 110 acres of Pipe Creek and Frog Meadows patented by Johan Phillip."
Big Pipe Creek runs a half mile north of Jacob Deter's "Resurvey on Locust Neck", then turns southwest and goes through Wolfs Mill and Stumptown, passing a quarter mile or so outside of Peter Mock's "Resurvey of Brother's Agreement". The above description places the Beamer family very close to and northeast of Peter's property.
Magdalena was censused 1830 as head of household in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Pat Newton points out a submitted IGI record of a Magdalena S. Shank, christened 1773 in Frederick County, daughter of John and Elizabeth Shank, but she has been unable to find any proof that this is a record of Magdalena, wife of Henry Beamer.
The three children of Henry and Elizabeth (Mock) Beamer: Catherine, John and Elizabeth†. 
i    Beamer, Catherine was born 1801/1805.  She was married to Jacob Shriner.  Jacob was born 1794/1804. 
According to Pat Newton, Jacob Shriner was mentioned in the settlement of Henry Beamer's estate in 1825. His ancestors are most probably recorded among these many Shriners censused in Frederick county, but I do not at this point know his father's given name:
This seems to be the census for Jacob and Catherine in 1820, as she must have been born between her mother's marriage in 1801 and death in 1805.
Jacob Shriner: 200100 00100;
Jacob 1794-1804, female 1804-10, 2 males 1810-20
--------------------------------------------
1820 Census, Taneytown, Frederick County, MD

The children of Catherine and Jacob listed here are as given to me by Pat Newton.
The six children of Jacob and Catherine (Beamer) Shriner: David, Milton, Eleanor, Emily, Martha and Louise. 
1    Shriner, David was born before 1820. 
2    Shriner, Milton was born before 1820. 
The name Milton Shriner appears in the 1870 and 1920 censuses for Uniontown, Carroll County, MD, and probably represents two generations of descent from this Milton.
3    Shriner, Eleanor was born after 1820.  She was married to Isaac Lambert. 
4    Shriner, Emily.  She was married to Valentine ____. 
5    Shriner, Martha.  She was married to Samuel Crouse. 
6    Shriner, Louise.  She was married to ____ Geiger. 
ii    Beamer, John was born 1801/1805. 
iii    Beamer, Elizabeth† was born 26 Oct 1805, died 1806 and was buried in Reformed Church, Cemetery, Taneytown. 
2    Mock, Christian was born 19 Jun 1782.    
3    Mock, Catherine was born 14 Oct 1783, died 3 Jun 1845 and was buried in Baust's Cemetery, Tyrone, Carroll, Maryland.  She was married to Dieterich Bishop before 1804.  He was the son of John and Maria (____) Bishop. 
The identification of Catherine's husband as Teter Bishop comes from the court Petition, discussed earlier, concerning the intestate proceedings of her father, Peter Mock who died in 1812. He is further identified (as Dedrich) in the Chancery procedings of his own father, John Bishop, who also died intestate one year after Peter. Those latter documents, dated 27 Jun 1833, name all of the children of John Bishop (see below). John Bishop owned land in Frederick County, including "The New Location", "Errors Corrected", "Resurvey on Runneymede" and "Friendship Agreement". All of this had been recorded online on the pages of Dorinda Davis Shepley, which gave citations to the court records, but that URL is no longer working.
op. cit.].
Dieterich, I use here the conventional German spelling, has his given name appear in the records as Dedrich, Dieterick, Deter, and, in Peter Mock's Chancery proceedings, Teter. The surname was Bischoff when the family immigrated, and occasionally appears as Bishoff in the records in Maryland.
Deterich was censused 1820 in Taneytown as Deter Bishop, and 1830 as Dieterick of Election District 6. In 1840 he was censused as Teter Bishop, District 1, Carroll Co., and in 1850 as Detrich in Carroll County, aged 73. It is not clear how many of the persons censused in his household are his children, and how many might be sons- or daughters-in-law. Certainly John, below, must be a grandson. It seems likely that Mary was a daughter-in-law because she does not appear in the 1830 census. She was 13 years younger than Peter. (Parenthetical entries from separate sources):
IMAGE: Censuses_1820-1850.jpg
Deterich and Catherine Censuses

Catherine's birth date of 14 Oct 1783 comes by calculation based on a reading of her Baust Cemetery tombstone: "Catherine (w/o D.) d 3 Jun 1845 @ 61y.7m.20d" also no longer online. The transcription lists her with four others under the heading "Bishoff", with Johannis b 1740 the first, but doesn't indicate whether or not all of the stones use that spelling. This is the cemetery in which her father Peter Mock is interred together with his third wife Margaret.
The four censuses for the siblings in the family are somewhat problematic due to highly inaccurate census ages from year to year:
IMAGE: Censuses_1850-1880.jpg
Siblings' Censuses

Each year Peter, Sarah, Susanna and Mary were in a single household in Taneytown. The 1880 census explicitly identified the four that year as siblings. Note that in 1880 Sallie was the same age as Siwan of 1850. I believe that these two were the same person, since the 1830 census lists only one daughter in that age bracket. The 17 year age difference for Sarah between 1860 and 1870 is awkward, but so is the fact that Peter aged on average less than eight years per decade through his last four censuses. That Susanna does not appear in the 1830 census probably means that her 1870 and 1880 ages were more nearly correct that that in 1860. Since the ages vary so drastically from decade to decade, I'm using the 1850 ages to specify birth years for the named children, except for Susanna (also appearing as Susannah and Susan).
In 1870 Peter, Sarah, Susannah and Mary were shown in Henry Bishop's household, listed after his wife and three children. (Someone has gone over the census page and renumbered the households and families, separately for Peter and the three women, but the list of names is written as one would expect for a single house with two families. Peter had zero real estate value listed.) The 1880 census listed all four as single, which then means that Sarah (who doesn't appear that year when siblinghood was specified) was not a wife of Peter, but a sister, also, since he wasn't described as a widower.
None of these siblings appear in the Carroll County census of 1900. And who the 10 year old John Bishop was in 1850 is unknown, but probably the son of one of the older sons whose name we don't have. Finally, at this point, I see no way to identify those five eldest children in the family, nor the son born 1825-30. Even if Bishop men were identified later as having been born 1804-10 and 1810-15, the exteme inaccuracies of the Frederick/Carroll county censuses would make that evidence of little value.
An abstract of the Chancery records, mentioned above, concerned with the estate of Dieterich's father John Bishop had been posted on the web pages of Dorinda Davis Shepley, but is no longer available online. These records identifie Dieterich's siblings and some of the next generation children, so I copy that abstract here (with a few additions found on the internet added in square brackets):

The ten children of Dieterich and Catherine (Mock) Bishop: ____, ____, ____, Henry, ____, Peter, Sarah, Siwan/Sallie, John and Mary. 
i    Bishop, ____ was born before 1804. 
The birth year of this first daughter of Catherine and Henry is, from the 1820 census, between 1794 and 1804. However, since Catherine was born in 1783, and was still at home with her parents in 1800, I've listed this daughter as born before (and probably quite near to) 1804.
ii    Bishop, ____ was born 1804/1810. 
iii    Bishop, ____ was born 1804/1810.

1880 Census Taneytown, Carroll, Maryland

The seven children of Henry and Mary (____) Bishop: Anna E., John T., Mary A., Alice, Henry C., Samuel T. and Emily C. 
1    Bishop, Anna E. was born 1839/1840 in Maryland. 
2    Bishop, John T. was born 1841/1842 in Maryland. 
3    Bishop, Mary A. was born 1845/1846 in Maryland. 
4    Bishop, Alice was born 1845/1846 in Maryland. 
5    Bishop, Henry C. was born 1852/1853 in Maryland. 
6    Bishop, Samuel T. was born 1860 in Maryland. 
Samuel was three months old in the 1860 census.
7    Bishop, Emily C. was born 1843/1844 in Maryland. 
Emily was censused four times (once as Amelia) in Henry's household, but the last time, in 1880, she was listed as "other" rather than daughter. I'm including her here but point out that there is some question about her parentage.
v    Bishop, ____ was born 1810/1815. 
vi    Bishop, Peter was born 1815/1816 in Maryland. 
vii    Bishop, Sarah was born 1819/1820 in Maryland. 
viii    Bishop, Siwan/Sallie was born 1823/1824 in Maryland. 
ix    Bishop, John was born 1825/1826 in Maryland.  He was married to Mary A. ____.  Mary A. was born 1829/1830 in Maryland and died after 1900. 
There were three John Bishops in Taneytown in the 1800s. The first was a farmer born 1800-1801, with a wife Susanna born 1802-03, and three children Maria, Rufus and Jane, ages 23, 28 and 19, all in the 1860 census.
The second was John A., in the same census, age 38 so born 1821/22, with a wife Miranda 28 and a 2 year old daughter whose name I could not decipher. He could have been a son of John and Susanna, but I have no evidence one way or the other regarding such a relationship. Dieterich also had a brother Jacob who had a son John about whom I know nothing else.
The third John Bishop was this son of Dieterich, censused in 1860, 70 and 80 in his own household, the second time with a ten year error in his age, but with the same wife and daughter. In that census, he had, in addition to some workers in his household, an Anna M. Bishop, 82, so born 1787/88. She was listed as a boarder, not a relative, but surely must have been one.

1900 Census Surface Crk., Delta, CO

The two children of ____ and Laura B. (Bishop) Baxter: Morris and Blanch B. 
i    Baxter, Morris was born 1873/1874 in Maryland. 
ii    Baxter, Blanch B. was born 1878/1879 in Maryland.  She was married to Eugene Corbin.  Eugene was born 1873/1874 in Ohio. 
They were censused 1920 in the 6th Precinct of Delta City with his mother-in-law in their home, listed as “Baxter, Laura V. J. B.” [Series: T625 Roll: 157 Page: 76]. I have no idea what those three initials stand for.
A child of Eugene and Blanch B. (Baxter) Corbin: Leila B.. 
1    Corbin, Leila B. was born 1898/1899 in Colorado. 
x    Bishop, Mary was born 1831/1832 in Maryland. 
4    Mock, Magdalena was born 1785, died 24 Feb 1852 in Taneytown, Carroll, Maryland and was buried in Trinity Lutheran, Cemetery. 
Magdalena never married. Her name was often the first on the various petitions and complaints to the court regarding her father's estate. I am assuming that she is the Magdalena Mock who died 24 Feb 1852 and is buried in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery located off of Pump House Road in Taneytown, about five miles from where Peter Sr. is buried in Tyrone.
Unfortunately, two readings of her tombstone disagree substantially as to her age at death. One, cited as "Tombstone inscriptions transcribed on 1 October 1889 and published in The Democratic Advocate newspaper on 14 December 1889", available on midmdroots.freewebspace.com/carroll/cemeteries/trinity.htm, gives 66y 2m 8d, leading to a birth date of 16 Dec 1785. The other, in the History of Washington County ... by Thomas John Chew Williams, reads 66y 11m 29d, and so a birth on 26 Feb 1785. The first, latest date, is about 18 months before Samuel was born, and the other about 16 months after Catharine, so either date is possible from that standpoint.
Note that her brother Christian named a daughter after Magdalena. It's also interesting that Peter married a Maria Magdelena, and had by her a daughter Mary Magdaline (as spelled in her obituary), then with his second wife Elizabeth named another daughter Magdalena.
Magdalena could have been one of the females censused in her father's home in 1810, or in that of her brother Peter II. After that, I've not been able to identify her in any census record, although she is mentioned in all of the court proceedings in re her father's estate.
5    Mock, Samuel was born 7 Jun 1787 in Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland and died 10 Feb 1871 in Stark County, Ohio.  He was married to Rachel S. Giesaman in Ohio.  Rachel S. was born 1792/1793 in Pennsylvania and died about 1866.  She was the daughter of Johannes D. and Sabina (____) Giesaman. 
The principal sources for Samuel Mock are the court documents in Maryland concerning his father's estate, an Indiana history [Tyndall and Lesh, 1918], Ohio Genealogical Society postings on Prodigy by Helene Hawkins, and an undated manuscript entitled "Mock Records" by Melvin B. Summers written in the 1830's [Summers, 1975]. Much of this manuscript was copied in the Canton, Ohio library by Pat Shemenski, who forwarded it to Steve Lapp in San Franciso in April, 1994. It went from him to Ron Moore who made paper copies for me and other Mock researchers. This was the record of a search for the ancestry of Melvin's wife Clara Mock, great-granddaughter of Samuel, granddaughter of John. The manuscript contained a chart of Samuel and Rachel’s family, a short paragraph concerning Samuel in a section on Bedford County Mocks, a somewhat detailed letter from Summers to a D. E. Mock of Delta, Ohio dated 4 Apr 1934, and extracts from a letter Summers received from George S. Mock of Manhattan, Kansas dated 22 Mar 1934.
Samuel and his brother Abraham were living in Ohio in 1833, when the complaint was filed in Maryland Chancery Court to force the sale of the family land. Neither son ever appeared on a Maryland census or tax record, so must have left the state fairly soon after leaving the family home.
According to the George S. Mock letter, Samuel came to Stark County, Ohio with his brother and one sister, and located near North Lawrence in Tuscarawas Township, and the brother and sister married and settled eight or twelve miles west. This is a mysterious claim, as none of Peter Mock's daughters moved to Stark County, Ohio. I haven't a clue as to how George Mock could have come up with this belief, which he mentions twice in his letter.
At some unspecified time Samuel and Rachael and their "youngest child" moved to Brookfield, four miles west of Massillon. (Louisville and Brookfield, as well as the western portion of today's Massillon, are all in Tuscarawas Township.) He writes: "My grandfather in an early day went near Fort Wayne, Indiana and bought 160 acres for each child. My father (John Mock) and Samuel Mock (another son, Samuel, Jr.) came back to Stark County."
Tyndall and Lesh write: "Sarah Mock was born in Stark County near Masillon, June 1, 1825. Her grandfather, Peter Mock, was a native of Germany and died in Maryland. Her father, Samuel Mock, previously mentioned, was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, June 7, 1787, and moved to Stark County, Ohio as a pioneer in 1819. He spent most of his life in that section of Ohio. He died in Stark County, Ohio, February 10, 1871, when nearly eighty-four years of age. The maiden name of his wife was Rachel Geisaman, a native of Cumberland County, Maryland and she died at the age of seventy-three. Samuel Mock and wife were exemplary Christians and active members of the United Brethren Church."
First of all, the authors probably meant Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Additionally, the surname Geisaman (with "ei") doesn't seem to exist. (Summers spells it as Gesaman, Geseman and Geeseman.) One version, occuring often in Pennsylvania, Maryland and iOhio, is Geiselman. However, her father's will uses the spelling Geesaman and Giesaman, and the Geesaman descendant who transcribed that will names him as Johannes D. Giesaman, which I adopt. Early on the Geiselman name occurs prominently in York and Adams Counties, Pennsylvania, just adjacent to Maryland's Frederick County, and Cumberland is just north of those two counties. Tyndall and Lesh give no dates for Rachel, only her age at death, but from her age of 67 in the 1860 census, her birth would have been in 1792/93 and therefore her death around 1866.
The will, of Rachel's father Johannes D. Giesaman indicated that he was of the township of Guilford in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, that his wife's name was Sabina, and that his children were Joseph, Jacob, Margaret, Sally, Elizabeth, Sabina m John Shillan, Rachel m Samuel Mock, Catherine m David Melaker/Metzker and Samuel.

24 Aug 1843

John was born 1820, married 30 Oct 1845, and died 8 Oct 1893.
Samuel appears in the Tuscararas Township, Stark County, Ohio censuses from 1820 through 1870. There is, however, considerable disagreement among those records as to the ages of his family members. In 1840, all of the children were at home except the eldest child John and one of the three oldest daughters, and the age brackets can be taken to constrain the ages of those at home.
In 1850 only Mary and Rachel were still at home, in 1860 Rachel and Peter, and in 1870 only Rachel. But the ages are wildly discordant among these records. Here are the records for Rachel's birth year(s):
1840
1850
1860
1870
1880
1900
1835/40
1838/39
1826/27
1834/35
1828/29
1828/29

where the last two records are of the widow Rachel Myers (see the discussion below regarding her marriages). According to the 1840 census, Samuel and Rachel had NO daughters born in the 1825 to 1830 period.
Son Peter must have been born before 1830 according to the 1840 census, but in 1860 his birth year was 1834/35. Since he was not at home in 1850, the earlier birth is more likely.
In 1860 he was censused as "S. Mock", age 73, with Rachel, 67, in Tuscarawas Township, living with their daughter Rachel and son Peter in the home of a clergyman, but owning real estate worth $9600. Possibly Samuel should have been shown as head of household that year:

A decade later he was still in Tuscarawas, an 83 year old retired farmer, with his daughter Rachel, 35, keeping house for him:
Samuel's death year was given in a Prodigy posting 8 May 1993 by Helen Hawkins, citing records of the Ohio Genealogical Society of Adams Co. Ohio†This was reported to me by Steve Lapp via Ron Moore, March 1994.†. She reports that Samuel was born in Hagerstown, MD in 1787, married Rachael S. Geisaman, moved to Stark County in 1819, and died 1871. This information agrees in detail with the Tyndall and Lesh data cited above. Samuel's grandson George S. Mock wrote: "Grandfather and wife Rachael, and the youngest child moved to Brookfield, 4 miles west of Massillon, and died there." That town no longer exists, but would have been near the western border of Stark County. The youngest child was daughter Rachel, who lived with her parents for many years before her two marriages.
The children, except for Matilda, are in the order given in the Melvin Summers family group sheet, which also gives the marriage dates and names of the childrens' spouses.
Rachel, as the wife of Samel Mack, was named in the will of her father Johannes D. Giesaman dated 15 Apr 1826 and probated in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.
The nine children of Samuel and Rachel S. (Giesaman) Mock: John, Matilda, Elizabeth, Sarah, Samuel, Jacob "Jake", Peter, Mary S. and Rachel. 
i    Mock, John was born May 1820 in Ohio and died 8 Oct 1893.  He was married to Marietta Stichler 30 Oct 1845 in Wayne County, Ohio.  Marietta was born 1826/1828 in Ohio.  She was the daughter of George and Magdalena (Row) Stichler. 
According to an IGI extraction from "Marriage records, 1813-1951 Ohio. Probate Court (Wayne County)", John Mock and Mary Stichler were married 30 Oct 1845 in Wayne County, Ohio. Summers gives the surname as Stickler. Note that Marietta's mother was a Row, married in 1823, and John's uncle Abraham Mock married a Catherine Row in Stark County, Ohio (adjacent to Wayne), in 1826.
4 Apr 1934]. None of the censuses find him in Indiana, so the stay there could not have been too long. According to his son George, John moved the family back to Louisville about 1854 or 56. This town is in Stark County, east of Canton. However, see below, John was censused in Tuscarawas Township, on the west border of Stark County, in both 1850 and 1860.
Indiana land entry records show that John Mock entered land in the Cinncinati District (along the east border of Indiana) on 17 Oct 1836. His property, the NE 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 34, Township 21 North, Range 14 E of the 2nd Prime Meridian, lies in the northern part of Randolph County, approximately at the location of the present town of Saratoga. (This is some 30 miles south of Adams County, with Jay County intervening.) Note that this was 40 acres, not the 160 acres said to have been purchased by Samuel for each of his sons [Summers, 1975]. Since he had four sons, it’s possible that he in fact purchased a total of 160 acres for all of them, not for each. The other son's portions may have been nearby, but John's was at the very northern edge of the Cincinatti District, and the adjacent Fort Wayne District land records have not yet been examined. It is interesting that a Jesse Oyster, of the same surname as John’s sister-in-law, entered land the following year in the NW 1/4 of Section 1 of the same township and range, about five miles north of John's land.
In 1850 John and Marietta first show in the census in Tuscarawas Township, Stark County, with two year old John and her relative, LYdia Shisler, 21 and presumably a sister, living with them. John was a 30 year old farmer; Marietta was 23 years old. In 1860 he was censused as a Book Seller in Tuscarawas Twp., some four pages distant from his father. Their son John F. was 12, and a new son George S was 7.
John's census in Stark County for 1870 is difficult to read. Greentown, today, is in Lake Township northwest of Nimishillen Township, where his son John Franklin lived in 1880, but I don't know whether or not that's what is referred to by the Post Office in this census (see also 1880). There was a 7 year old male and a 1 year old female in the home whose names I couldn't read.
John and his wife, she this time as Mary, were again censused 1880 in Stark County, he as a patent medicine manufacturer. Ida, 12, is surely the daughter censused above at one year of age whose name I couldn't read. Also were in the home two Servant/Laborer, Mary and Frank Ferniar, ages 17 and 15.
Summers gives 8 Oct 1893, in different places, as the death date both for John and for Mary, and in another place 1904 for both.
The five children of John and Marietta (Stichler) Mock: John Franklin, Sarya†, George S., Ira† and Ida M. 
1    Mock, John Franklin was born 29 Nov 1848 in Ohio and died 28 Jan 1904.  He was married to Mary Ann Seefong 22 Mar 1873.  Mary Ann was born 26 Sep 1850 in Nimishillen, Stark, Ohio, died 15 Mar 1921 in Stark County, Ohio and was buried in Union Cemetery, Nimishillen, Stark, Ohio.  She was the daughter of John David and Mary (Thomas) Seefong. 
The names of John Franklin's children are from Summers. From the 1880 Nimishillen, Stark, Ohio, census I find the ages of the first three children: Elmer, 5, Minnie 4 and Clara A. 1.
In 1900 John was censused as J. F., with a dressmaker Emma Sefong boarding in his home, almost certainly a relative, probably a sister, of Mary. Their children Elmer, Clar and Emma, 17, were at home.
In the 1910 Nimishillen census, in the household next following her son Elmer, but living alone, we find the widow Mary A. Mock, 58, who reported she had borne four children, all living. This Mary W. was born 1851/52 in Ohio, and is almost certainly Mary Ann, the mother of Elmer, as Summers gives a death date of 1910 for John Franklin.
Mary Ann's name and dates come from Summers' records. In various places in his papers, he gives 22 May?, Mar and Nov, 1873 for their marriage, and says they were married by the Rev. Samuel W. Koontz. From an IGI record, Mary Ann comes from a family of seven children, Samuel, Lydia, and Elizabeth older than her, John, George and Emma younger. All are buried in Union Cemetery. There is no source information available for this IGI record.
After John Franklin's death, Mary was censused adjacent to her son Elmer as a 68 year old widow in Nimishillen, with her sister Lizzie Seefong, 70, living with her. Both families were recorded as Mack that year.
The four children of John Franklin and Mary Ann (Seefong) Mock: Elmer E., Minnie, Clara and Emma. 
i    Mock, Elmer E. was born 25 Apr 1874 in Ohio and died 20 Apr 1948.  He was married to Elsie Pearl Summers.  Elsie Pearl was born 16 Feb 1881 in Ohio.  She was the daughter of Sylvanus and Angeline B. (Brumbaugh) Summers. 
Elmer and Elsie R. Mock were censused 1910 in Nimishilen Township, he 35 and she 28, with Elsie R. Mock, 28, living with them. Their daughter Beulah was five.
In 1920, Elmer E. and Elsie P. Mack, 46 and 38, were still in Nimishillen, with their daugher Beulah I. aged 15. In the home also were Mary A. Mack, 68, and Elsie's sister Lizzie Seefong, 60.
From Jesse F. Davis of Lewistown, Pennsylvania, on a familyorigins.com web page no longer availabe, I found:
"Elsie Pearl Summers was born 16 Feb 1881. She was married to Elmer Mock. ... They had a daughter Beulah Irlene Mock". And as to her parents: "Angeline B. BRUMBAUGH was born on 11 JUL 1858 in Randolph Twp., Portage Co., OH. She was married to Sylvanus SUMMERS on 11 DEC 1875. Sylvanus SUMMERS was born on 2 NOV 1852. He died on 27 JAN 1908 in Canton, Stark Co., OH."
A child of Elmer E. and Elsie Pearl (Summers) Mock: Beulah Irlene. 
1    Mock, Beulah Irlene was born 1904/1905 in Ohio. 
ii    Mock, Minnie was born 24 Aug 1876 in Ohio.  She was married to Levi Stuckey.  Levi was born 1860/1861 in Ohio. 
Levi is most probably the son age 9 years in 1880 of Jacob and Sarah Stuckey of Washington, Stark County, Ohio. However, I haven't researched this in enough detail to be sure.
In the 1910 census in Nimishillen Twp., Minnied indicated that she had had four children, of whom three were still living. The name of the fourth child is unknown to me. In 1920 the family was censused still in Nimishillen.
The three children of Levi and Minnie (Mock) Stuckey: Melvin, Frederick and Virgal/Virgin. 
1    Stuckey, Melvin was born 1899/1900 in Ohio. 
2    Stuckey, Frederick was born 1900/1901 in Ohio. 
3    Stuckey, Virgal/Virgin was born 1905/1906 in Ohio. 
iii    Mock, Clara was born 22 Nov 1878 in Louisville, Stark, Ohio.  She was married to Melvin Summers.  Melvin was born 1877/1879 in Ohio. 
There was a Melvin Summers and wife censused in 1910 and 1920 in Salt Creek Township, Holmes County, Ohio, she as Orra E. first, and then as Arra, both times with an age indicating birth in 1882/83. In the second census they had a daughter Gladys, 8. I'm don't know whether or not these records represent Melvin and Clara. The northeast corner of Holmes County is pointwise contiguous to Stark County.
Clara M. Summers lived in Canton, Stark County, Ohio, in 1935, and was active in circulating her husband's manuscript.
This is the Melvin Summers who carried out so much research in the 1930s on the ancestry of his wife Clara Mock. Marilyn Mock Pohlman transcribed most of his papers and posted them on the MOCK-GEN-L archives [home.ease.lsoft.com/archives/mock-gen-l.html] 26 Oct through 1 Nov, 2004.
There were two Melvins in the 1880 census. Most probable is the Melvin B., aged 3 and born in Ohio, son of Sylvanus and Angeline Summer (without the "s") censused in Nimishillen, Stark County, in 1880.
iv    Mock, Emma was born 26 Oct 1882 in Ohio.  She was married to George W. Slagle.  George W. was born 1879/1880 in Ohio. 
Although Summer's had Emma's husband as a Slagle, his full name and those of their daughters come from the 1910 and 1920 censuses. They lived first in Nimishillen Township, Stark County, although they were censused several pages away from Emma's mother and brother Elmer, who were censused adjacent to each other. By 1920 they had moved to Louisville in the same county, their daughters ages given as 12 and 5 years.
The three children of George W. and Emma (Mock) Slagle: ____, Opal L. and Viola. 
1    Slagle, ____. 
2    Slagle, Opal L. was born 1907/1908 in Ohio. 
3    Slagle, Viola was born 1914/1915 in Ohio. 
2    Mock, Sarya† was born Sep 1850 and died 18 Aug 1851. 
3    Mock, George S. was born 13 Apr 1852 and died 22 Jul 1934. 
George S. Mock of Manhattan, Kansas, wrote the letter to Melvin Summers, 22 March 1934, describing his family history back to his grandfather Samuel. Either the date of that letter, or the death date of 1924 for George, also given by Summers, must be incorrect, and I'm assuming the latter.
George first appears as a seven year old in his father's 1860 Stark County census. Ten years later he was censused as a 15 year old farm worker in the home of James and Levina Rainey in Clinton Township, Wayne County, just west of Stark County.
I could not find George in the 1880 census, but believe this to be him 1900 in Lowell Twp., Cherokee County: George S. Mock, 48, Single, Poultry Raiser, born in Indiana of parents both born in Ohio.
The record has this George born in Indiana, which conflicts with his birth in Ohio according to his father John's 1860 census. But we know John owned land and spent some time in Indiana before returning to Ohio, so I feel this record can be accepted since the age and middle initial are correct, and we know from Melvin Summers' corresondance that George was at one point in Manhattan, Kansas. Cherokee is the very southeast county in Kansas, some 200 miles from Manhattan
I was unable to find George in any subsequent census or in the various indexes of the FamilySearch web pages.
Here is the text of George's letter as recorded by Summers in his papers and transcribed on the MOCK-GEN-L site by Marilyn Pohlman:
"Extract of Letter from George S. Mock, Manhattan, Kansas, March 22, 1934, Relative to Mock Family History"
"My grandfather was Samuel Mock, and his wife's name was Rachel Gessman. He and one brother and one sister came from Benchester (?) County, Penna., and located in Tuscarawas Tp., near North Lawrence, Stark County, Ohio. The brother and sister married and settled 8 or 12 miles west. I never saw them. I cannot think where the sawmill or distillery was." (This remark has reference to the sawmill that a certain John Mock, and to the distillery that a certain George Mock, built and operated in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, and of which we wrote Uncle George).
"When I was 12 or 14 years old, father moved to Louisville. Grandfather and wife Rachael, and the youngest child moved to Brookfield, 4 miles west of Massillon, and died there. My grandfather in an early day went near Fort Wayne, Indiana and bought 160 acres for each child. My father (John Mock) and Samuel Mock (another son) came back to Stark County."
"Uncle Jake Mock married a woman by the name of Oyster, 3 miles west of Brockfield, a village called Greenville. Uncle Jake Mock's son, Frank Mock, address Decatur, Indiana. Cousin John Houk, same address. I ask you to write both of these cousins. They live close together all of these days."
"Grandpa and wife passed over before Sister Ida was born. I was born April 13, 1852. My brother (John F. Mock) was about 3 years older than I."
"Mr. Oyster had a large tannery, on white bark principles, and Abraham Mock and sister (apparently Samuel Mock's brother and sister) got their boot and shoe leather there."
"This is all that I can scare up, but I am proud that I am able to give some light"
"I wish you well, and let me hear from you. May God Bless you."
4    Mock, Ira† was born 13 Jan 1862 and died 23 Dec 1868. 
5    Mock, Ida M. was born 1867/1869 in Ohio.  She was married to Levi Lautzenheiser 3 Nov 1887 in Stark County, Ohio.  Levi was born 19 Jun 1866 in Nimishillen Twp., Stark, Ohio and died 1948 in Louisville, Stark, Ohio. 
I was unable to find either Ida or Levi in 1900 to 1920 censuses, either as Lautzenhiser (as spelled by Summers) or Lautzenheiser. The name seems to be most common in Indiana and Ohio.
The genealogy of the Lautzenheiser family is available on Ancestry.com Family Trees, submitted by Susan McMahan [awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=heinrichmeyer&id=I8451]. I'm acquainted with Susan, who provided much assistance to me on my Hartzell and Shively lines, so can vouch for the quality of her research. All of the Lautzenheiser information given here is from her work, except Winfield's age comes from his 1920 census. It should be noted from the marriage date and available birth dates that the daughters are not listed in order of birth.
The six children of Levi and Ida M. (Mock) Lautzenheiser: Mary, Esther, Harrison M., Winfield, Theodore and Raymond C. 
i    Lautzenheiser, Mary.  She was married to Homer Walker.  Homer was born 1889 and died 1976. 
ii    Lautzenheiser, Esther.  She was married to Lemuel R. Archer. 
iii    Lautzenheiser, Harrison M. was born 2 Sep 1888.  He was married to Orsilda Sell.  Orsilda was born 1889 and died 1957. 
iv    Lautzenheiser, Winfield was born 1893/1894.  He was married to Bertha M. Henning. 
v    Lautzenheiser, Theodore was born 21 May 1896.  He was married to Ada Clapper.  Ada was born 1897 and died 1982. 
vi    Lautzenheiser, Raymond C. was born 23 Aug 1898.  He was married to Lorena Fork.  Lorena was born 1890 and died 1984. 
ii    Mock, Matilda was born 6 Feb 1821 in Pennsylvania and died 23 Feb 1908 in Douds, Van Buren, Iowa.  She was married to Daniel Shaffer 5 Jan 1841.  Daniel was born 1813 in Pennsylvania, died 8 May 1894 and was buried in Leando Cemetary, Douds, Van Buren, Iowa. 
Matilda is not mentioned in any of Summers’ papers. She was originally included in this family based on correspondence received by Ron Moore [1996] from Frances Spees of Clarksville, Tennesee, a gr-gr-grandaughter of Matilda. Frances gave Matilda’s birth, marriage and death information, and says Matilda’s Iowa death certificate names her father as Samuel Mock, born in Maryland. The birth in 1821 is acceptable since that is matched within a year in two later censuses.
Matilda and Daniel went to Van Buren County, Iowa ca 1850 “by way of Illinois and possibly Perry Co., Indiana”. She was a member of the Church of the Brethren or of the United Brethren Religion, it's unclear which.
I was unable to find Daniel and Matilda in the 1850 or 1860 census in Iowa, before they show up in Van Buren County by 1870. Since I only find four children in 1870 and 1880, and Matilda's 1900 census (below) reports that she had had seven children, it's probably that the others were older and would show up in the 1850 and 1860 censuses for Danial and Matilda if those can be located.
October 2006: The two eldest daughters were identified in the RootsWeb WorldConnect family tree of David W. Plowman, who also gives Anna Mary's spouse, Thomas Clark Plowman, and seven children. One child yet remains to be accounted for, possibly one who died young.

1880 Census, Chequest, Van Buren, Iowa

In 1900, Van Buren Township, Van Buren County, Iowa, Matilda was listed as mother-in-law in the household of Samuel and Jane A. Roush. Her age was given as 79, born in Pennsylvania in 1821, with both parents born in Maryland. Jane, her daughter, was aged 42, born in Iowa in 1858, with both parents born in Pennsylvania. The census also indicated that Matilda had borne seven children, of whom six were then living.
Obituary:
"Matilda Mock Shaffer was born in Frederic Co., Pa., February 6th, 1821, and at 4 a.m., Feb. 23, 1908, her life work was ended and for her it was the daybreak of eternal life. She was married Jany. 5, 1841, to Daniel Shaffer, who died May 8, 1894. To them were born seven children, six of whom are still living, Mrs. Thomas Plowman, Mrs. Jasper Plowman, J. E. Shaffer, Samuel Shaffer, Mrs. Samuel Roush and Mrs. Frank Horn. They moved to Iowa in 1847, where she afterwards resided. For many years she had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Samuel Roush, where for 23 years the main thought of that family was grandmother's welfare and happiness. With her husband she united with the Brethren church nearly 50 years ago. …" (Photocopy of this obit is located on page 80 of Obit Book A found in the Van Buren County, Iowa, Genealogical Society's collection at the Keosauqua Public Library in February 2000.

4    Shaffer, Samuel A. was born Dec 1855 in Iowa, died 15 Nov 1930 and was buried in Oklahoma.  He was married (1) to Sylvia O. ____ 1880/1881.  Sylvia O. was born Feb 1862 in Iowa.  He was married (2) to Nora Neal Bertram Apr 1909.  Nora Neal was born 1892/1894, died 1963 and was buried in Oklahoma. 
The children from Samuel's first family are from the Village Twp., Van Buren, Iowa census of 1900 [Series: T623 Roll: 462 Page: 167]. This also provided birth months and years for the entire family as well as both Sylvia and Samuel's middle initials. He was a farmer whose parents were born in Pennsylvania; Sylvia's father was born in Maryland and her mother in West Virginia.
The five children of Samuel A. and Sylvia O. (____) Shaffer: Charles A., Ross O., William S., Matilda M. and Harvey A. "Harry". 
i    Shaffer, Charles A. was born Aug 1882 in Iowa. 
ii    Shaffer, Ross O. was born Apr 1884 in Iowa.  He was married to Cora ____.  Cora was born 1884/1885 in Iowa. 
The two children of Ross O. and Cora (____) Shaffer: Paul and Kenneth. 
1    Shaffer, Paul was born 1909/1910 in Iowa. 
2    Shaffer, Kenneth was born 1916/1917 in Iowa. 
iii    Shaffer, William S. was born Apr 1890 in Iowa. 
iv    Shaffer, Matilda M. was born Jan 1893 in Iowa. 
v    Shaffer, Harvey A. "Harry" was born Mar 1897 in Iowa.  He was married to Lillie Mae Bertram.  Lillie Mae was born 1900/1901. 
The five children of Samuel A. and Nora Neal (Bertram) Shaffer: Ruby, Ray, Willard "Dude", Mary "Elladee" and Loretta. 
i    Shaffer, Ruby was born 1909/1910. 
ii    Shaffer, Ray was born 1912/1913. 
iii    Shaffer, Willard "Dude" was born 1914/1915. 
iv    Shaffer, Mary "Elladee" was born 1923/1924. 
v    Shaffer, Loretta was born 1927/1928. 
5    Shaffer, Jane A. was born 1857/1858 in Iowa.  She was married to Samuel Roush.  Samuel was born 1853 in Iowa. 
Jane A. is probably the Agnes J. censused as a twelve year old in 1870. From the 1900 census, Samuel and Jane Roush, still in Van Buren County, had five girls and a boy, Leonard, Matie, Mahella, Worthy, Wealthy and Ray, ranging in age from 17 to 5 years.
6    Shaffer, Nora E. "Elnora" was born 1859/1860.  She was married to Frank Horn. 
Nora E. in the 1880 census, aged 19, is undoubtedly the Elnora aged 10 in 1870.
iii    Mock, Elizabeth was born 1822/1823.  She was married to Phillip Houk 1 Feb 1844 in Stark County, Ohio.  He was the son of Samuel and Catherine (Sprecker) Houk. 
Elizabeth's marriage is from Ankrum [1940], and appears also in the IGI [Patron Sheets, 1969-1991, Patron submitted forms], where Phillip's name is spelled Hauk. Her sister Sarah married, five years later, a Benjamin Houk. It should be noted, also, that a Henry Hoke/Honk according to Ankrum, presumably Houk, married a daughter of Sarah (Mack) Longenecker, a descendant of Alexander Mack, founder of the Church of the Brethren.
Elizabeth's sister Sarah married a Benjamin Houk five years later, so this is probably a case of sisters marrying brothers, but I have no evidence for that. Ruth Self agrees, but also has no evidence. She writes ['op. cit'.] that George, Susan and Benjamin are known children of Samuel and Catherine, and that she "highly suspects" thaa Samuel, Daniel and Phillip were also.
The lineage for these Houk's that she provides is:

iv    Mock, Sarah was born 1 Jun 1825 in Masillon, Stark, Ohio.  She was married to Benjamin Houk 29 Nov 1849 in Stark County, Ohio.  Benjamin was born 28 May 1821 in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania.  He was the son of Samuel and Catherine (Sprecker) Houk. 
Helen Hawkins, citing records of the Ohio Genealogical Society of Adams Co. Ohio, says that Benjamin Houk married in 1849 Sarah Mock born 1 Jun 1825 in Stark Co., Ohio, daughter of Samuel Mock. She gives, as well, Benjamin's lineage back to his great-grandfather Peter Houk who immigrated from Germany. The item was reported as from Adams County, in the southern part of the state.
Ankrum [1940] reports the marriage, which also appears in the IGI, citing Marriage Records, 1809-1916; Marriage Index, 1809-1972, Probate Court (Stark County) Ohio.
Ruth Self writes [Personal Communicaion Jul 2006] that Samuel Houk's wife was Catherine Sprecker/Sprechter/Spraker:
"Catherine Spraker/Sprecker/Sprechter Hauk/Houk took her children and migrated to Stark Co., OH after her husband, Samuel died [ca 1830]. Now, why would a widow up and do that? My theory is that she had sons already living there. Son, George was born in 1812 when Catherine was 31 and Samuel was 37. Then Benjamin was born 9 years later, and Susan was born a year after Benjamin. There was a Jacob Hauk/Houck and Esther "Hettie" Hauk/Houk (my g-g-grandmother) in Stark Co., OH at the same time."
Benjamin Houk, father of John C., was born in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, May 28, 1821, and was fourteen years of age when his mother removed to Stark County, Ohio, where he grew up and where he finished his early education. In that county on November 29, 1849, he married Miss Sarah Mock [Tyndall and Lesh, 1918]; [Summers, 1975].
A child of Benjamin and Sarah (Mock) Houk: John C.. 
1    Houk, John C.
v    Mock, Samuel was born Mar 1829 in Ohio and died 1920 in North Lawrence, Ohio.  He was married to Lydia A. or H. Shissler 8 Oct 1850 in Stark County, Ohio.  Lydia A. or H. was born Aug 1828 in Pennsylvania and died 1912 in North Lawrence, Ohio. 
citing 22 Mar 1934 letter from George S. Mock of Manhattan, Kansas]. Samuel's marriage data is from Ankrum [1940], and appears also in the IGI from "Patron sheets, 1969-1991, Patron submitted forms".
8 Sep 2011], Samuel purchased 120 acres of the farm of John Koons and Rachel Geesaman. I don't know what the connection of this Rachel, believed by Kunse to be the daughter of a Samuel Geeseman, may have been to Samuel's mother, Rachel S. Giesaman, daughter of Johannes.
At first I believed that the 1880 census in Wayne County which placed that Samuel's parents' births in Prussia meant that Summers had identified the wrong family for Samuel, Jr.:

1880 Census Baughman, Wayne, Ohio
PRU = PRUSSIA but this was a census taker's error

However, it's probable that the census taker entered the parents' birthplace of Prussia (Prusia on the census) on the wrong line. Five out of the 48 Shisslers censused in Stark and Wayne counties that year had parents born in Prussia, and it seems reasonable that Lydia did also. Unfortunately Samuel's mother-in-law is shown as born in Pennsylvania, as well as her parents. So this implies two egregious errors in the census return.
Twenty years later this was resolved by the 1900 census which shows Samuel born in Ohio and his parents in Maryland and Pennsylvania, as it should. There's no occupation entered for Samuel that year. Their daughter Margaret and her husband Daniel Rohrer were censused adjacent to them.
I list for reference the children and their spouses as given by Summers, but cannot claim these as fully documented. Two of the three children who died as infants Summers says were buried in Newman Creek Chapel which is near North Lawrence, Tuscarawas Township, Stark County.
The nine children of Samuel and Lydia A. or H. (Shissler) Mock: Harriett A., son†, Daniel Franklin "Frank", Sarah Ellen "Ella", Margaret A., Cora B., Ida, Ada† and Lydia Ann†. 
1    Mock, Harriett A. was born 18 Sep 1851 in North Lawrence, Stark, Ohio, died 10 May 1883 in North Lawrence and was buried 13 May 1883.  She was married to Cyrus Kirk Reinoehl 7 Mar 1872 in North Lawrence.  Cyrus Kirk was born 30 Nov 1848 in North Lawrence and died Jul 1913 in North Lawrence.  He was the son of Levi and Nancy (Baer) Reinoehl. 
Melvin Summers gives Harriett's husband as Cyrun Reinochl, and reports that they lived on his father's farm near Newman Creek Chapel, near North Lawrence, Stark County.
Cyrus' surname is given by Summers as Reinochl, and appears in various IGI records as Reinoehl and Reinoeht, the latter in his marriage record as extracted from "Marriage records, 1813-1951, Ohio Probate Court (Wayne County)", where her name was given as Hattie and his middle initial K. was given. The spelling Reinoehl appears often in the Ohio IGI, but Reinoeht only this one time, so I accept this former spelling.
Cyrus and Harriett were censused in 1880 but with an index entry riddled with errors:

1800 Census, Lawrence, Stark, Ohio

The index transcriber didn’t do too well in this case. The “c” in the surname clearly doesn’t have the loop that the census taker used, for instance, in the word “Occupation”, so is “e” as in the second letter of the name. However, the “N” in “Nade” doesn’t look at all like a “D”, as appears in “Daughter”, so this disagrees with Summers’ “Dade” for this daughter, as well as submitted IGI records which give Dade. Finally, there were three final entries, from a family and household on the next census page which is out of order on the film, which have no connection to Harriett’s family.
The five children in the family are given by Summers, using his order. Why Frank and Ray don't appear in the 1880 census is unknown, unless they were considerably older than the other children and so gone from the home by 1880.
The five children of Cyrus Kirk and Harriett A. (Mock) Reinoehl: Charles Clement, Frank, Ray, Maud Mae and Dade Estella. 
i    Reinoehl, Charles Clement was born 9 Aug 1873 in North Lawrence and died 11 Dec 1949.  He was married to Jennie M. Kunkle 31 May 1899 in Canal Fulton, Stark, Ohio. 
Charles was at one time the Treasurer of Stark County.
There are several submitted IGI records which agree on Charles dates of birth, marriage and death, but I could not find an extracted IGI record for him.
ii    Reinoehl, Frank was born 7 Jan 1881 in Lawrence, Stark, Ohio and died 1 Jul 1941.  He was married to Eleanor Mary Carman 7 Aug 1907 in East Liverpool, Columbiana, Ohio. 
Frank became the Superintendant of Schools in South Dakota, according to Summers.
There are two IGI records for Frank's birth each of which correctly identifies his parents:
Patron sheets, 1969-1991].
Frank Reinoehl, b 7 Jan 1881 Lawrence, Stark, Ohio [Birth records, 1867-1908, Ohio Probate Court (Stark County)]. I'm accepting this second, extracted record, but point out that the submitted record is day-specific and also gives his death date.
Another IGI record gives his marriage and death:
Patron sheets, 1969-1991].
iii    Reinoehl, Ray. 
Ray was a farmer near Canal Fulton
iv    Reinoehl, Maud Mae was born 19 May 1876 in North Lawrence, Stark, Ohio and died 5 Jun 1949.  She was married to Edward Wesley Hardgrove 20 Mar 1900 in Canal Fulton, Stark, Ohio. 
v    Reinoehl, Dade Estella was born 27 Mar 1878 in Lawrence Twp., Stark, Ohio.  She was married to ____ Gross. 
2    Mock, son† was born 1852/1853, died 16 Jan 1853 and was buried in Newman Creek Ch.. 
3    Mock, Daniel Franklin "Frank" was born 1854/1855 in Ohio, died 22 Mar 1903 in Ohio and was buried in Newman Ck. Chap..  He was married to Anna Melissa Daler 21 Jun 1884 in Stark County, Ohio.  Anna Melissa was born 3 Jan 1860 in Canal Fulton, Ohio, died 6 Nov 1935 in Cleveland, Ohio and was buried in Newman Ck. Chap..  She was the daughter of Mathias and Elizabeth (Hirschey) Daler. 
Melvin Summers gives this son's name as Frank, his wife as Adda Dailer, and provides the death information for both. Frank was censused as Franklin in his father's Baughman Township, Wayne County, home in 1880. According to Summers, he was Superintendant of schools at Dalton, Shreve and West Galena, Ohio. (The first two are in Wayne County, Dalton lying just south of Baughman Township in the east, and Shreve in the southwest corner of the county; I haven't located West Galena.)
Daniel Franklin was a 25 year old student, single and living in his father's home in 1880. I have not been able to identify him in censuses of 1900 through 1920, as either Daniel, Franklin or Frank. Although there were several Franklin or Frank Mocks in Ohio, none fit as to age, birthplace and wife's given name.
The identification of the children of this family comes from Barbara Dittig's Working Chart on the descentdants of our immigrant [Peter Mock]. Two of the sons, and possibly a third, have been found in census records given below.
The marriage date I adopt here comes from an extracted IGI record citing "Marriage records, 1809-1916; marriage index, 1809-1972" Ohio, Probate Court (Stark County)], Barbara Dittig's chart gives 12 Jul 1884.
The information for Anna's parents comes Barbara Dittig's chart, and from their 1880 census in which the name was spelled as Dailer, where Anna, at age 20, was a school teacher:

The five children of Daniel Franklin "Frank" and Anna Melissa (Daler) Mock: Frank Carleton, Ralph Daler, Russell Lowell, Clark Leslie and Elizabeth Frances. 
i    Mock, Frank Carleton was born 1 Mar 1884 and died 13 Nov 1964. 
Frank Carleton Mock was censused, as Charlton, in 1900 while living in a rooming house (housekeepers Zetta and Lulie Oller with 15 students) and going to school. His birth month was given as Mar 1884. There was a Frank E. Mock censused in Wooster in 1920 as a laborer at the Rubber Co. However, I'm not sure enough of the identifcation to accept this as a record of Frank Carleton's wife and child. The age is only two years off, but the "E" is clearly written in the census. Of course, it could have just been misheard by the census taker. For now, I copy the record here, but wait for some verification before accepting it.

Carleton was living in Cleveland, Ohio, at the time of his brother Russell's death in 1956.
ii    Mock, Ralph Daler was born 29 Feb 1888 and died 1964.  He was married to Margaret ____.  Margaret was born 1889/1890 in Ohio. 
Ralph and his brother Russell L. were living together in 1920 in Cleveland Heights, Cuyahoga, Ohio. Ralph, 32, was the Vice President of a steel company, and Russell, 29, was a Soldier in the Army. Ralph and his wife Margaret, 30, had two daughters, Martha, 5, and Margaret, 3 years and 6 months old.
Ralph was living in Cleveland, Ohio, at the time of Russell's death in 1956.
The two children of Ralph Daler and Margaret (____) Mock: Martha and Margaret. 
1    Mock, Martha was born 1914/1915 in Ohio. 
2    Mock, Margaret was born 1916/1917 in Ohio. 
iii    Mock, Russell Lowell was born 25 Mar 1892 in West Salem, Wayne, Ohio and died 14 Oct 1956 in Tucson, Pima, Arizona.  He was married to Mabel Beckett 28 Feb 1921 in Flemingsburg, Fleming, Kentucky.  Mabel was born 22 Jan 1893 in Kentucky, died 15 Nov 1960 in San Fernando, California and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Tucson, Arizona.  She was the daughter of George T. and Addie (Wallingford) Beckett. 
There was a Russell L. Mock, single and of the correct age, 28, censused 1920 as a patient in the U. S. Army General Hospital in Deerfield Township, Lake County, Illinois. He held the rank of Sgt. in F Corps, and was born in Ohio.
A partially anonymous web page of Carla at the University of Minnesota, entitled Descendants of William Quaintance III (no longer online) provided Mabel's birth date and parentage, as well as Russell's birthplace and their marriage. Mabel's paternal grandmother was a Sarah Quaintance from Kentucky.
Her father's 1900 census in Magisterial District No. 3, Fleming County, Kentucky, gives Mabel's birth as Jan 1893 in Kentucky. She had older siblings, brother Jesse and sister Frankie, and a younger sister Mildred.
The obituaries of Russell and Mable were kindly supplied by Carrie, a genealogical lookup volunteer in Tucson:
Arizona Daily Star Tucson, AZ October 15, 1956
Russell Lowell Mock, 65, of 2470 N. Campbell Ave., died at his home yesterday. He came to Tucson 20 years ago from Buffalo, N.Y.
Mr. Mock was manager of People's Investment Corp. in Tucson and was a member of the American Legion.
He is survived by his wife, Mabel; one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth White, of North Carolina; and three brothers, Carleton, South Bend, Ind., Ralph, Cleveland, Ohio, and Clark, Baltimore, Md.
Arizona Daily Star Tucson, AZ November 18, 1958
Mrs. Mabel Beckett Mock, 65, of 2470 N. Campbell Ave., a World War I nurse, died last Friday in San Fernando Veterans Hospital in San Fernando, Calif. She had lived in Tucson for the past 20 years.
Surviving Mrs. Mock are two sisters, Mrs. Frances Ryan and Mrs. Elmer Foster of San Antonio, Tex., and two brothers, Jesse and Raymond Beckett of Louisville, Ky.
iv    Mock, Clark Leslie was born 25 Feb 1896 in Stark County, Ohio and died 1981 in Baltimore, Maryland. 
A web page entitled "Initial List of Rhodes Scholars" includes Clark Leslie Mock, RS19 [www.biblebelievers.org.au/]. It's probable that the 19 means the year 1919, although this is never specified. But for a man born 1896, the age of 23 would be reasonable for receiving a scholarship to graduate study, and to be eligible for the scholarship, applicants had to be under 24 years of age.
Clark Mock is named as editor of "Sketlioi", v2, 1920, an annual of Adelbert College, Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, Ohio [www.case.edu/its/archives/Buildings/adlgym1919src.htm].
The name Sketlioi is also found as that of a club founded 1914 at Western Reserve University (since 1967 Case Western Reserve University).
A biography of Clark Leslie Mock appears in a book entitled "Representative Clevelanders", edited by R. Y. McCray, The Cleveland Topics Co., 1927 [www.ancestorinfo.com]. I haven't yet read this biography, but it will most likely identify Clark as the son of Daniel Franklin and Anna Melissa Mock, as I find it improbable that two Clark Leslie Mocks of about the same age would be found in northern Ohio at the same time.
Clark was living in Baltimore, Maryland, at the time of his brother Russell's death in 1956.
v    Mock, Elizabeth Frances was born 1898 in Ohio and died 1976 in West Palm Beach, Florida.  She was married to Henry White. 
Elizabeth was living in North Carolina at the time of her brother Russell's death in 1956.
4    Mock, Sarah Ellen "Ella" was born 1858/1859 in Ohio.  She was married to Lemman Zimmerman 30 Dec 1880 in Wayne County, Ohio.  Lemman was born 1855/1856 in Pennsylvania.  He was the son of Jacob and Martha (____) Zimmerman. 
The husband of Ellen (Ella according to Summers) farmed for a time and then moved to Canton and was employed at the Denber-Hampden Watch Works, according to Summers.
A marriage is recorded in an extracted IGI record citing "Marriage records, 1813-1951, Ohio Probate Court (Wayne County)" between Lemman Zimmerman and Sarah E. Mock, 30 Dec 1880, Wayne, Ohio. I'm accepting this as the record for this couple, thus supplying both of their first names.

1800 Census Marshallville, Wayne, Ohio

However, I was unable to find any of this family in the 1900 census. There was an Ira M. Zimmerman aged 32 censused in Lawrence Township, Stark County in 1910 whose father was born in Pennsylvania and mother in Ohio. However, neither Lemon nor Ellen was living with that man.
The children and their spouses here are as given by Summers.
The three children of Lemman and Sarah Ellen "Ella" (Mock) Zimmerman: Ira, Bertha May and Ethel. 
i    Zimmerman, Ira. 
There was another Ira Zimmerman born in Baughman, Wayne County, a few years earlier than this Ira. That man's parents were Frank and Mary (Eschliman) Zimmerman [1880 census].
There are submitted IGI records for an Ira Zimmerman birth 23 Feb 1883 in Ohio, and another for 21 Jul 1883, this latter the son of David and Emma J. (Derrow) Zimmerman. If the first of these two is in fact a different man, he may be th son of Lemman and Sarah Ellen. That birth date comes from a Social Security Death Record for Jan 1972 in Germantown, Montgomery, Ohio.
Finally, there is a marriage record for an Ira Zimmerman and Elma Amsbaugh about 1902 in Ohio.
Whether any of these are relavant is at this point unknowable.
ii    Zimmerman, Bertha May was born 2 Nov 1884 in Baughm, Wayne, Ohio.  She was married to Emerson Bates. 
I haven't been able to identify the Wayne County town, recorded as Baughm, in which Bertha May was born.
There was an Emmerson Bates, age 4, son of Emma Bates, single, censused 1880 in Dresden, Weakley, Tennessee. Otherwise I haven't been able to find a record of Bertha's husband except as named by Summers.
iii    Zimmerman, Ethel.  She was married to ____ Crider. 
5    Mock, Margaret A. was born 1861 in Ohio.  She was married to Daniel Rohrer 11 Mar 1880 in Wayne County, Ohio.  Daniel was born 1850 in Pennsylvania and died about 1932. 
citing "Marriage records, 1813-1951, Ohio Probate Court (Wayne County)"]. He was a railroad employee in Akron, Ohio, and died about 1932, according to Summers.
The couple were censused as few months after their marriage, living in Greene Township, Wayne County,Ohio. Daniel was 22 working as a farm laborer and Maggie was 17. His parents were both born in Pennsylvania; hers in Ohio.
Their implied birth years of 1857/58 and 1862/63 in 1880 contrast rather strongly with those given explicity twenty years later, when they were censused adjacent to her parents, with Daniel born in Pennsylvania instead of Ohio:

However, I don't find them censused in subsequent years in any state. However, the possible variations in surname spelling, as well as their son's given name, make it difficult to know for sure whether or not they were censused.
6    Mock, Cora B. was born 6 Aug 1865 in Ohio and died 24 Jul 1951.  She was married to William Edwin Weygandt 1884 in Marshallville, Wayne, Ohio.  William Edwin was born 1864 in Ohio and died 22 Apr 1931.  He was the son of Jacob K. and Mary (Downer) Weygandt. 
William was an attorney and became successively County Prosecutor, Probate Judge, and Common Pleas Judge, according to Summers. The details of their births, marriage and death shown here, more detailed than given by Summers, are from a submitted IGI record.

1900 Census Wooster, Wayne, Ohio

In 1910 William was not censused in Wooster Township (with any spelling of his surname), but appeared again in 1920 as a lawyer, aged 55, with his wife Cora, age 54.
The three children of William Edwin and Cora B. (Mock) Weygandt: Carl, Ross and Ola. 
i    Weygandt, Carl was born 1888 in Ohio. 
ii    Weygandt, Ross was born 1890 in Ohio. 
iii    Weygandt, Ola.  She was married to John McGee. 
7    Mock, Ida was born 1868/1869.  She was married to John Graham.  John was born about 1871. 
Ida and Ada were twin sisters, but Ada died as a child. Ida and John lived in Canton where he was employed in the insurance business.
Although there are several IGI records for Ida Mock, none have a spouse named Graham, and none of the births seem to be for Ida.
The three children of John and Ida (Mock) Graham: Margaret, Joyce K. and Howard. 
i    Graham, Margaret. 
ii    Graham, Joyce K.
iii    Graham, Howard. 
8    Mock, Ada† was born 1868/1869 in Ohio and died about 1873. 
9    Mock, Lydia Ann† was born 1859, died 11 Aug 1860 and was buried in Newman Creek Ch.. 
vi    Mock, Jacob "Jake" was born 1821/1829 in Ohio.  He was married to Charlotte Oyster 24 Aug 1848 in Stark County, Ohio.  Charlotte was born 1823/1824 in Ohio. 
According to the letter from George S. Mock, "Uncle Jake Mock married a woman by the name of Oyster, 3 miles west of Brookfield, a village called Greenville". Her father had a large tannery where Abraham Mock and his sister (Elizabeth Houk) got their boot and shoe leather.
The IGI records their marriage as Jacob Mock and Charlotte Eyster, 24 Aug 1848, Stark County, Ohio [Marriage Records, 1809-1916; Marriage Index, 1809-1972, Probate Court (Stark County) Ohio.].
This census record for 1870 is apparently for this couple, in Allen County, Indiana in 1870:

The age for Jacob places his birth in 1821/22, awkwardly close to those of his siblings, but all are based on census records and so decidedly suspect. He may have wanted to appear older than his wife. That he had a son Franklin corresponds to the son Frank attributed to Jacob and Charlotte by Summers, and that Frank was in Indiana late in life.
In 1880 Jacob reported to the census taker that his father (Samuel) was born in Germany. It's strange how family details get mixed up when handed down orally.

1880 Census, Hoagland, Allen, Indiana

The childrens' birth places indicate the family moved to Indiana around 1853, but I was unable to find their 1860 census in Ohio or Indiana.
Summers in one place spelled Charlotte's surname as Eyster, but most records (except her marriage) examined give it as Oyster.
Heritage Books, Inc, 19??]
George S. Mock wrote: "Uncle Jake Mock married a woman by the name of Oyster, 3 miles west of Brockfield, a village called Greenville. ... Mr. Oyster had a large tannery, on white bark principles, and Abraham Mock and sister got their boot and shoe leather there."
The six children of Jacob "Jake" and Charlotte (Oyster) Mock: Mary, Elizabeth, William, Emma, Franklin and Lemuel E. 
1    Mock, Mary was born 1852/1853 in Ohio.  She was married to ____ Gressly.  ____ was born in Indiana and died 1873/1880. 
We don't know the given name of Mary's husband, but he had probably died before she and the children were found living with her parents in 1880.
The two children of ____ and Mary (Mock) Gressly: Emma M. and John F. 
i    Gressly, Emma M. was born 1870/1871 in Indiana. 
ii    Gressly, John F. was born 1872/1873 in Indiana. 
The name including middle initial, age and birth state make it reasonably sure that the John Gresly, a Wholesale Salesman in Nebraska in 1910, was the son of Mary (Mock) Gressly. While the census listed his mother as born in Ohio, the family moved shorthly after her birth to Indiana, and he may not have realized the distinction. While they were in Nebraska that year, John's wife was from Kansas and their daughter was born in Washington, indicating he had moved around a bit in his life.

6    Mock, Lemuel E. was born 1865/1866 in Indiana.  He was married to Anna Louise Marquardt.  Anna Louise was born 1 Mar 1869 in Allen County, Indiana and died 14 Jul 1925 in Monroeville, Allen, Indiana.  She was the daughter of Adam and Charlotte M. (Kruse) Marquardt. 
Lemuel was in Madison Township, Allen County, Indiana in 1900. The census indicated that he was 34 and had been born in 1865; his wife Anna was 31 and born 1869, both in Indiana. His parents were born in Ohio and Pennsylvania, hers in Indiana and Germany. They had been married 7 years, but had no children.
Anna is identified (Summers had only her first name) on a RootsWeb Family Tree posted by Kenneth Johnson. He gave their wedding date, and named her as ANna Louise Marquardt, and gave her birth and death dates and her parents as shown here. Her mother Charlotte had been born in Prussia.
vii    Mock, Peter was born 1826/1835 in Ohio. 
viii    Mock, Mary S. was born 1830/1834.  She was married to Samuel Robison 31 Jan 1856 in Stark County, Ohio. 
Summers had Mary's husband's name as Robinson, but the IGI [citing "Marriage records, 1809-1916; marriage index, 1809-1972, Ohio". Probate Court (Stark County)] spells it as Robison (and her maiden name as Mocks).
ix    Mock, Rachel was born 1835/1839 in Ohio.  She was married (1) to Edward Kennedy 20 Aug 1878 in Stark County, Ohio.  She was married (2) to ____ Myers. 
Rachel's first marriage is recorded in the IGI [extracted from "Marriage records, 1809-1916; marriage index, 1809-1972, Ohio". Probate Court (Stark County) ].
I was unable to find either spouse in the 1880 census. However, by 1880 there was a widow Rachel Myers b 1828/29 living in Edon, Williams County, Ohio, with a son Charles, 21. If that was a stepson, then this could be a record of Rachel if she was widowed, married and widowed again in less that two years. This Rachel listed both of her parents as born in Pennsylvania, but Samuel and his wife were so recorded in 1850, so there may have been some carelessness or uncertainty in birth places entered by the family into census records.

I am not confident enought in this identification to list Charles as the grandson of Samuel and rachel Mock. Twenty years later the widow, aged 71, was living alone in Florence Township (in which Edon is located), Williams County.
6    Mock, Abraham was born 1790/1792 in Pennsylvania and died before 1880.  He was married to Catherine Row 20 Apr 1826 in Stark County, Ohio.  Catherine was born 1804/1806 in Pennsylvania.

Probate Court (Stark County). I assume this is the son of Peter, as we know from the Maryland court papers regarding his father's estate that Abraham was in Ohio before 1833.
Two Abraham Mocks appear in the census index for Sugar Creek Township, Wayne County, Ohio in 1850. Kari Teeter Kandoll kindly transcribed this one for me (Personal Communication, 30 May 2003):

This is almost certainly a record of the Abraham and Catherine married in 1826, as Emanuel was from this record born 1827/28, and Wayne and Stark are adjacent counties in Ohio. The age of 63 presents a slight dilemma, as it implies a birth year of 1786/87.
However, in 1860 he was censused as Abram, age 68, thus born 1791/92, with no occupation and with an innovative spelling of the name of his wife and daughter. Apparently he only aged five years in the previous decade, and his daughter Susanna aged 15 years! The previous census entry is for his son Wilson, and Emanuel is found on the next page, thus fortifying Abraham's identification.

1860 Census Sugar Creek Twp., Wayne County, OH

The 1800 census of Peter Mock's household, discussed above, recorded a son born between 1790 and 1800 which could only be Abraham. Thus this 1860 census age is about right, and the 1850 one is incorrect (a not unusual occurrence).
The birth in Pennsylvania, however, is perplexing, and moreover is confirmed in later censuses of his son Wilson in 1900 and 1910. Abraham's father Peter I was "of Frederick County, Maryland" when he purchased Resurvey on Brother's Agreement in June 1793, about the time of Abraham's birth. These two records then imply a residence in Pennsylvania ca 1790-92, and then residence somewhere in Frederick County before the June 1793 purchase. Possible, but it requires quite a bit of moving around.
Catherine's ages of 44 and 55 in these two censuses imply a birth year of 1804 to 1806, so she was about 20 to 22 years old when she married in 1826. Abraham was in his mid-thirties when they married.
I was unable to find an Abram or Abraham or Catherine Mock or Mack in the 1870 census index at Heritage Quest. Either they were missed that year, or had moved out of the state, although Catharine was censused still in Sugar Creek as a widow in 1880, with an unmarried servant and her child:

1870 Census, Prairie Twp., Holmes, OH

The Emanuel Mock, aged 54, censused in Illinois in 1880 is of the right age and birthplace, as well as having the right birth places for his parents. However, this Emanuel could not be the son of Abraham and Catherine, because he had an older sister Elizabeth in his home, aged 60. That means she was born 1819/20, some six years before Abraham and Catherine were married. I copy that census here merely for completeness, and do NOT believe it is the right Emanuel unless there is something seriously wrong with this Elizabeth's record. (A 50 year old Elizabeth, e.g., born 1830 and out of her parents home before the 1850 census, would be acceptable.) No other Emanuel or Manuel born in Ohio turned up in a search of that census index, and I was unable to locate a Sergeon or Surgeon in 1860 or 1870 with a wife Elizabeth.

The two children of Emanuel and Catherine (____) Mock: Amanda and Eliza. 
1    Mock, Amanda was born 1853/1856. 
2    Mock, Eliza was born 1856/1861. 
ii    Mock, Susanna was born 1829/1835 in Ohio. 
iii    Mock, Wilson was born Mar 1834 in Ohio.  He was married (1) to Laura Ann Fratz 3 Jan 1858 in Stark County, Ohio.  Laura Ann was born 1825/1826 in Ohio and died about 1863.  He was married (2) to Emma Griling / Kreiling 12 Oct 1865 in Wayne County, Ohio.  Emma was born Apr 1850 in Ohio. 
Wilson Mock's first wife, according to the Melvin Summers papers, was Laura Ann Fratz, married 3 Jan 1858 in Stark County, Ohio. This was documented in an extracted IGI record ['Marriage records, 1809-1916'; marriage index, 1809-1972, Ohio, Probate Court, Stark County]. Wilson's second marriage was with Emma Griling, 12 Oct 1865 in Wayne County, adjacent to Stark County [IGI, Marriage Records, 1813-1951, Ohio Probate Court, Wayne County]. However, on her son Edward's death record, her surname is given as Kreiling.
The census records in Wayne County, Ohio, for Wilson Mock, shown in detail below, identify his children and their birth years. The 1900 census, in particular, indicates that he had 10 children of whom 9 were living that year. That, combined with a second marriage and a seven year gap between two of his children leads to a surmise that his wife Laura and newborn child died around 1863:
Summers' papers included the following obituary for Edward, son of Wilson:
"From Canton Repository of Jan 20, 1936
"Wooster-Services were to be held today for Edward Mock, 50, of southeast of Wooster who died after a short illness. Burial was to be in Wooster cemetery, Mr. Mock leaves his widow; a daughter, Katherine; two brothers, William and Oliver, and three sisters, Mrs. James Shamp, Mrs. William Gerlach and Mrs. Edward Winkler, all of Wooster."
A search for William Gerlach in Ohio resulted in censuses 1900, 1910 and 1920 for a William G. Gerlach, born 1865/66, of German born parents. His wife's name was Laura, born 1867/69 (from the three censuses) in Ohio of Ohio born parents. They had two chldren, shown below, and in 1920 Laura's mother Emma Mock was living with them, aged 73.
A search for James Shamp in Ohio was not immediately definitive, as there were two such in Wooster, James A. born in 1860, and James G. born 1881. However, James G. was censused twice with his mother-in-law named as Flora Hessler or Hestler, so he could not be the son-in-law of Wilson Mock. Thus, Amanda Shamp, wife of James A. born 1868/69 (from three censuses), was the daughter of Wilson.
However, I was unable to identify Edward Winkler in any census (anywhere in the Ohio) as a husband of any of the other three daughters of Wilson, nor did I find any of them as a widow Winkler up through 1920.
As mentioned above, Wilson was censused at age 13 in his father's home in Sugarcreek Township in 1850. In 1860, he was censused adjacant to his father (as Abram), but the name of Wilson's wife is unfortunately not at all clear (possibly Lara). This is the only record we have as to Laura's age, but note that Wilson's age should have been 26 if his birth in Mar 1834 (from the 1900 census) is correct, so that her age record here cannot be relied on.
Wilson was a little difficult to find in the 1870 census because Heritage Quest indexed him as Mank, while the census itself was clearly Mauk:

1900 Census, Wooster Twp., Wayne, Ohio

Someone overwrote (*) on the census 38 years married for Wilson. But the 38 years for Emma would have her married at age eleven -- she had in fact been married only 24 years, and Wilson 42. It's difficult enough to interpret inaccurate censuses without later overwriting by unknown individuals! However, it's clear that the census taker recorded, in the column "Mother of how many children" 10 children, 9 living for Wilson, and 6 children, 6 living for Emma.
And the above record is incomplete. The census record of 1910 lists a son Edward, age 24, i.e. born 1885/86, who should have appeared in 1900 at age 14 or 15. We know from his death record that Frank Edward was indeed a son of Wilson and Emma, but where he resided in 1900 is unknown. The number of years married is, again, a fiction. And it appears that Emma had lost two children in the past decade, although I don't know which ones.

Frank E. Mock and wife Hazel D. Mock, ages 34 and 30 years, were censused 1920 in Wayne County, Ohio, with daughters Edith E. and Catherine M, ages 8 and 6 years. All of the family were born in Ohio.
Edward's death record (familysearch.org), which names his father Wilson and spouse Hazel, gives his full name as Frank Edward Mock. As mentioned earlier, Summers' papers included the following obituary for Edward, son of Wilson:

Christian Mock  &  Mary Shearer
Peter 1 , Christian 2 , Margaret 3 Top  

Christian Mock was born 19 Jun 1782 in Pennsylvania, died 23 May 1855 and was buried in Old Log Church, West St. Clair, Bedford, Pennsylvania. 
Christian was married to Mary in Pennsylvania. 
Mary Shearer was born 1783/1787 in Maryland, died 8 Sep 1877 in Wamego, Pottawatomie, Kansas and was buried in Polly Creek Cemetery, Laclede, Pottawatomie, Kansas. 

The parentage of Christian Mock of Bedford county, Pennsylvania, is quite well established. He was named as a son and heir in the intestate proceedings of Peter Mock who died 1812 at age 85 in Maryland. He was named in later papers concerning that estate (between 1825 and 1833) as living in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Thus it seems sure that Peter of Maryland and Christian of Bedford were indeed father and son.
There is some confusion in the literature, however. Christian’s burial record comes from the cemetery in St. Clair township of the Mock Dunkard Church built on land he contributed. An early history of Bedford County [Anon., 1884]192?] and [Wilson, 1926] apparently relied on this, and incorrectly assigned the dates of Christian’s birth and death from the tombstone record to Christopher, son of Peter of Bedford. Later researchers compounded the error by assuming the name of that Peter’s son was Christian, instead of Christopher. The 1817 will of the Bedford county Peter clearly names his son as Christopher. Even today, various writers arbitrarily interchange Christian and Christopher in reporting tax and census records for St. Clair Township.
Several accounts of the Mock Dunkard church built on land given by Christian to the Brethren of the Running Creek District of Bedford County seem to have as their original source an account in the History of the Church of the Brethren in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, which was quoted “verbatim” by Freeman Ankrum in "Alexander Mack the Tunker and Descendants" [Ankrum, 1943], from whom we borrow:
In 1841 Elder George Mack Holsinger (1804-1862), a grandson of Alexander Mack, Jr., moved fifteen miles (west) from the Yellow Creek congregation in Morrison’s Cove to the Pleasantville area of St. Clair Township. (See also our Teeter Family History regarding the Yellow Creek Church.) There he found a little group of Brethren whose leader was John Garber, a minister but a man too timid to preach. By 1843, under Holsinger’s leadership, a congregation had been formed and a church erected on ground given by Christian Mock, whose wife was a member of the Brethren. This little log building was build on Layton Road, about two miles south and west of Pleasantville, and roughly two miles from Alum Bank. It was still standing when visited by Ankrum sometime before 1943, two miles northwest of the modern church building, but the clay chinking was falling from between the logs. A 1955 photograph of Christian’s tombstone, with the log church in the immediate background, was published on page 47 of the first volume of the Brethren’s Encyclopedia. A second photograph is of the interior of the building. The captions describe it as the Mock meetinghouse built in 1843-44.
The congregation was at that time officially the Dunnings Creek Church of the Brethren, but they were known also as the Mock Dunkards. We do not know whether Christian was a Brethren before this time, or at all for that matter, but the informal name of the congregation points to the possibility of his having been an active member until his death some twelve years later, and burial right next to the church. On the other hand, Holsinger’s mother was a Mack, whose relatives changed their name to Mock when they came to the area, and some of them may well have been members of this church and given it its informal name.
(The Holsinger surname is prominent in the Brethren church, over twenty five being named in the “List of Ordained Ministers and Elders (1708-1980)” in the the Brethren Encyclopedia [Anon., 1983; v. III]. Holsingers were ministers in Antietam, Maryland, near where our Mocks and Shearers lived, and in Morrisons Cove, where our Teeter ancestors lived. John S. Holsinger (probably the John Snyder who was later an elder and minister in Iowa and Virginia) was an executor of Christian’s will, and Elder Henry Ritz Holsinger was Editor of the Christian Family Companion, the first weekly Tunker paper, and of Holsingers History of the Tunkers and the Brethren Church, Pacific Press Publishing Company, Oakland, CA, 1901.)
The connection between Christian and Mary (Shearer) Mock and their daughter Margaret who married David Burger Teeter was originally based on a biography of their grandson Samuel M. Teeter in a Kansas county history [Anon., 1890]. The Album reports that Christian “was born in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania, whence he went to Maryland when quite young, and there became of age and married his wife, who was a native of that State. Mr. Mack was of Holland ancestry while the Shearers were of Swiss descent. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Mack lived on a farm in Maryland for some years, and Mr. Mack followed his profession of a veterinary surgeon. They later removed to Franklin County, Pennsylvania where they sojourned eight years, thence going to Bedford County, where Mr. Mack engaged in farming, and also in Veterinary work.” Their grandson Samuel M. Teeter, the subject of the biography, followed his grandfather Christian into the profession of veterinary medicine.
There are several difficulties with the above account, written almost a century after the facts. The Holland ancestry, in particular, is highly doubtful, since a report of a ship embarkation from a Dutch port or a description of someone as “Pennsylvania Dutch” both lend themselves to misinterpretation. Also, a birth in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania in 1782 may not agree with the fact that Christian’s father Peter was in the Washington Co., MD militia in 1778 and 1779, and sold land in that county in 1783.
MD Land Records, Liber JS 17, Folio 569-70]. Thus a move north across the state line apparently occured between those dates. However, residency in Franklin County in 1823 conflicts with the 1820 Bedford County census which agrees exactly with the ages of the children. It may be that Christian either moved back and forth or maintained two homes for a period of time.
Early Bedford County, Pennsylvania records are difficult to interpret. A Christian Mock was taxed in St. Clair Township, Bedford County as early as 1808, where as a farmer he owned one cow and 258 acres valued at $528 on which he was taxed $2.64.
v. VI, no. 2, pg 19, Spring, 1997] that the Crestian, Chrisley, Cristley and Christian Mock tax records (of some unspecified township) 1810 through 1816 were those of Christopher Mock, son of Peter of Bedford, and brother to Adam, but cites no sources to support that speculation.
mock.rootsweb.com/Chart07.pdf].
The 1820 census for “Christian Mock” lists a male and two females under the age of 10 for the family, and a male aged 10 to 16. These will be interpreted below with regard to Christian’s children. Ickes [op. cit.] claims that the 1820 record was of Christopher censused “as Christian”, living beside Adam Mock. He also reports that in the next year, 1821, Christopher and Adam purchased adjacent tracts from the estate of Peter Mock of Bedford, and Christopher was taxed on that land until he sold it in 1824, but does not give citations.
The children in the 1830 census of Christian in St. Clair Township, Bedford Co. match the ages of the 1820 family, with another son and daughter born after 1825. Ickes [op. cit.] also identifies the 1830 census of Christian as that of Christopher, the son of Peter and Catherine (Carn) Mock, although giving no indication of how he came to that conclusion.
The 1840 census for “Christian Mock” in the township is a complete mystery. It lists only two adults, a woman in her 40’s, and another in her 60’s, and two males and two females below the age of ten. This is presumably not our Christian Mock, but why was he not censused that year? In the 1850 Bedford county census of Christian’s family in St. Clair township, are found his son Samuel, 22, and a Charles Hinkel, 10, living in the household. Samuel is known to be his son from Christian’s Bible as well as from his will. That document mentioned “all my children”, but named only Samuel and Matilda, the latter of whom was not listed in the Bible.
The Album cited above stated that Christian died 1855 in Bedford country “past three score and ten” years of age, and that Mary survived him and in 1865 went to Iowa, then in 1874 to Kansas. A photograph of Christian’s tombstone, next to the Mock Meeting House, has been published in The Brethren Encyclopedia :
IMAGE: MockMtgHouse.gif
This constitutes the source of the death date and the (calculated) birth date of 19 Jun 1782 for Christian. The second photograph on that page shows the interior of the church, with a raised platform and wide lectern. Both photographs illustrate clearly the log construction of the building.
Christian’s will, signed (with an “x”) 14 May 1855, nine days before his death, bequeathed to his “dearly beloved wife Mary”, as long as she lived, his land, premises, and all of the rents and profits arising therefrom. He directed that his executors, Mary and John S. Holsinger, hold a vendue to sell his personal property. From the proceeds, if any remained after paying his debts, his son Samuel was bequeathed $50 for building and repairs. He further bequeathed to his wife one cow of her choice, one bed, and two hogs, and various household effects. Christian willed that his son Samuel “shall farm the place as long as they can agree”, and that he should give to his mother one third of all the grain he raised “in the bushel”, as much hay as she needed to feed her cow, and he was to have firewood “cut ready at the door”.
Christian provided in his will that the farm was to be sold as soon as practicable after Mary’s death, and that the proceeds were to be divided equally among “all my children” who, unfortunately, he failed to name. However, he did specify that Matilda was to have only five dollars of her share, the remainder to be held in trust for her children. If she were to be widowed before all of those children arrived at twenty one, however, and “if she would be needy”, she was “to have of the money as she sees fit”. As Margaret was also married and had eight children at this time and Magdalene had four daughters by 1860, there must have been some special reason for Matilda to be singled out this way. Perhaps Christian did not get along with that son-in-law.
There are several records that may apply to Mary Shearer's ancestry:
Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh, Washington D.C., 1924]. Since Mary Shearer married Peter's son Christian, it is not unlikely that one of these four men was her father. The names of all of these can be identified in a Washington County list (date not known) of Capt. Jacob Sarer's Company which included Lietn. George Sarer, Sergt. Isaac Sharer, Peter Mock in the 5th class, and Peter Sarer in the 7th† [MD Hist. Soc. MS 1146 cited in The Maryland Militia in the Revolutionary War by S. Eugene Clements and F. Edward Wright, Family Line Publications, Westminster, MD, 1987]. That reference also listed a William Mock in the 4th Class of Capt. Hogmires Company of Washington County.†.

He was born 26 May 1701 in Niederlinxweiler, Mainzweiler, Germany, the son of Philip and Kathrine (Anna Catharine) Thom of Niederlinxweiler. Anna Catherine came as a widow to America, presumably with her son and daughter-in-law, and they setled in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Children married into Replogle and Broombaugh families. The Scherer and Mueller surnames may be only coincidence, or may provide clues to our lineages of those names. (Our Thommen lines we know to be from Switzerland.)

1870 Census, Des Moines Twp., Jefferson, Iowa

The 1900 census of her daughter Margaret Teeter, mother of George, in Mill Creek Township, Pottawatomie, Kansas, gives her mother’s birth place as Pennsylvania, while the Kansas history [Anon., 1890] says Mary was a native of Maryland. Since Christian and Mary moved from Maryland to Pennsylvania when Margaret was an infant, Margaret might have always assumed that her mother was born in the state in which she herself was raised.
Margaret’s obituary in 1901 said she was to be buried in Stratton Cemetery, south of Laclede, “beside the graves of her husband and mother”. When I visited the graveyard, it was named Polly Creek Cemetery, four miles east and five miles north of Wamego. Mary’s tombstone reads
     MARY MOCK
       DIED
   Sept. 8, 1877
       AGED
90 yrs 7[?] ms 5 ds

The implied birth date is 3 Feb, not the May 1786 that I had originally from some family source, nor the June 1787 implied in the Kansas county history which had her death wrong by one year. Her age was given as 66 years in the 1850 census in Bedford County, indicating a birth year of 1783/84, and 74 and 84 in 1860 and 1870, respectively, implying a birth in 1785/86.
The children of Christian and Mary Mock are now well documented in the Mock Bible in the possession of Dr. Harold David Mock, and brought to my attention by his sister, Evelyn (Mock) Hirtle George. Printed in Nürnberg in 1765, the Bible inscriptions on three of the flyleaves include birth dates of sixteen Mocks and of three Leppos [George and Swan, 1998].
One page in the Bible has the following six inscriptions, with no indication of who the parents were. The third, fourth and fifth entries are in one hand, the other three were written by other individuals:
IMAGE: ChristianChildren.gif
The Children of Christian Mock

Margaret’s birth date is independently available from our family records, which confirms that the Bible record is of the birth of the daughter of Christian and Mary. Samuel, born 1828, is named as a son in Christian’s will signed 14 May 1855, and censused as 22 years of age in Christian’s home in 1850. These known relationships make it quite certain that this page consists of a listing of children of Christian Mock (1782-1855) of Maryland and Bedford Co., Pennsylvania.
However, the list is incomplete. The 1920 census for Christian listed a male born 1805-1810 who does not appear in the Bible. If this was a son, no further trace of him has been found. Also, Christian’s 1855 will mentioned a daughter Matilda who at that time was married with children. Although Christian bequeathed his estate equally among all of his children, he mentioned by name only Matilda (whose portion he reserved for her children) and Samuel.
Census records for the children of Christian Mock can be compared with the information above:
IMAGE: Childrens_Records.jpg
Records Comparison

From this chart, it appears likely (although not certain) that the first son, as well as Priscilla and Manuel, had died by 1830. The assumption that Matilda is the first of three children born 1815-1820 is dictated by the placement of Margaret and Reuben’s birth dates within that period, so that 1815 seems the most likely estimate for Matilda’s birth year. This fits with the fact that in Christian’s 1855 will, he referred to “all of those children” when mentioning Matilda’s progeny. Her birth in 1815 would allow her to have had several children by 1855.
The eight children of Christian and Mary (Shearer) Mock: ____, Matilda, Margaret, Reuben, Priscilla†, Manuel†, Magdalene "Lanah" and Samuel. 
1    Mock, ____ was born 1805/1810. 
The 1820 census for Christian and Mary included a male born 1805-1810. As he was not listed in the Mock Bible, he was either a son who died early, or someone else temporarily in the household.
2    Mock, Matilda was born about 1815. 
Matilda's name is known from her father's will of 1855, at which time she was married with children, but we have no knowledge of her husband or childrens' names.
3    Mock, Margaret was born 1 May 1817.    
4    Mock, Reuben was born 21 Feb 1819 in Pennsylvania, died 12 Apr 1883 and was buried in Keagy Cemetery, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Elizabeth Hoffman.  Elizabeth was born 3 Sep 1824 in Pennsylvania and died 4 Jul 1892 in Keagy Cemetery, Pennsylvania.  She was the daughter of Christian and Mary (Longenecker) Hoffman. 
One flyleaf of the Mock Bible contains the following inscriptions, where doubtful readings are shown with question marks and parenthetical guesses.
Rheuben Mock Was born february the 21 in the year of our lord 1821 [sic]
Elizabeth Mock Was born septtember the 3 in the year of our lord 1824
Christtopher Mock was born january the 1 in the year of our lord 1843
Mary ann Mock was born April the 2 1846
Lydia Mock was born March the ? 1848 (1 or 7)
Elisebeth Mock was born 1849
March the ???
Samuel Mock was born 1851
Magdelenia Mm Mock was born September the ?? ????
Isaac Mock was born november the 9 1858
Matilda susan Mock was born August the 18 1864(?)
jacob Mock was born September the 12 1861(?)

Reuben's birth year of 1821 given above does not agree with the 1819 given on the previous page, nor with the inscription on his tombstone, which also reads 1819. The March entry between Elisebeth and Samuel could belong to either, and the faint, scribbled day is enigmatic. The "Mm" letters following Magdelenia's name might have been an aborted attempt to write Mock which was not crossed out. The date for Isaac is very faint, and Evelyn Hirtle George reads it as 1 Nov 1857. The two dates in the 1860s are quite hard to read, and at least one is probably incorrect, as all of the other dates were entered chronologically.
Evelyn lists from other sources two possible additional children of Reuben and Elizabeth, John R. and Emanuel David (b 1865). As these are undocumented in Reuben's bible or estate records, I don't accept them as children in this family.
From Sell, Jesse C., Twentieth Century History of Altoona and Blair County, Pennsylvania, and Representative Citizens, Chicago, IL: Richmond-Arnold, 1911, pp. 807-808 as quoted on a web site no longer in existence:
"Reuben Mock was born in Maryland and was young when he was brought to Bedford County by his parents being reared at Pleasantville where they lived for many years. After his marriage he removed to Woodbury Township, in Bedford County, where he engaged in farming until his death, which occurred in 1884. In his earlier years he was something of a horseman and it was told how he successfully drove a six-horse team all the way from Morrison's Grove to Baltimore, carrying grain and produce. This was before railroad days and, considering the difficulties, was considered something of a feat. He used the famous Conestoga wagon which was especially constructed for long distances and heavy loads. It has been celebrated in story and poem. Reuben Mock was well known and was a welcome visitor at many a fireside and public gathering. He was of the pioneer type, brave, resourceful and efficient. He was a member of the Brethren church and was a stanch supporter of the Democratic party. He married Elizabeth Hoffman, a daughter of Rev. Christian Hoffman who was a pioneer preacher of the River Brethren faith in Bedford County."
The birth in Maryland seems to be incorrect, as Reuben in all of his adult censuses claimed his birth place as Pennsylvania, and his death date is off by one year in this account.
Reuben's 1850 census record is indexed on Ancestry.com as Reuben Mack, not Mock, although the census itself is clear, including Christin's listing as a
female. See the discussion below concerning the name of Reuben's wife.

1850 Census, N. Woodbury Township, Bedford, PA

In 1860 Ruben and Elizabeth, ages 37 and 35, were censused with seven children in Middle Woodbury Township, Bedford County: Chritian 17, Mary A. 15, Lydia 13, Samuel 9, Magdulina 3 and Matilda 10 months. Isaac, 4 years old at that time, doesn't appear in the household. The next household censused in 1860 was probably that of a brother of Elizabeth, Christn and Mary Hoffman, both 40, wih children John, Leah, Isaac and Susan, ages 22, 19, 19 and 17.
In 1870 in Middle Woodbury Township, daughter Mary was gone from the household, but the three youngest children had appeared during the decade - Jacob 8, John 6 and Emanuel 4 -- and Reuben had aged 13 years:
Reuben and Elisabeth were censused in 1880 by a lisping census taker with his own ideas on the spelling of given names. The FHL transcribed record, re-edited here from the census image, changed the "w" in Reuben's name to "u" but kept the "h", apparently settling for half-right. Matilda worked in someone else's home, apparently, but resided with her parents.

1880 Census, Woodbury, Bedford, Pennsylvania

Their son Samuel was censused adjacent to them that year, with his own son Rhewben.
A suggestion has been made that Reuben married twice, as the 1850 census names his wife as Rachel, and the following censuses through 1880 report her as Elizabeth. However, we have four independent sources which give his wife only as Elizabeth, with no mention of an earlier marriage.
The most convincing argument to me is from selected pages of a manuscript entitled Ancestors & Relatives of the Richard Coeur Dillon Family of Ohio, handwritten (with elegant printed script) in 1991 by Mr. Richard Coeur Dillon of Bay Village, Ohio. I'm indebted to Barbara Dittig for a copy of these pages. The manuscript treats in part of Mary Alice Mock, who married in 1886 John Calvin Dillon, 1859-1951. One of the charts gives her parentage as Christian Huffman Mock, 1841- and Elizabeth Smith, 1844-1915. Christian, on another chart, is shown as the son of Elizabeth Hoffman and a Mock whose given name was unknown. It's unfortunate that Mr. Dillon recorded Christian's middle name, several times, as Huffman, and his mother as a Hoffman, because that middle name is one piece of evidence that Elizabeth was Reuben's only wife. (He also records one of Christian's daughters as Gurtrude, so probably retained spellings as he found them.)
Two other relevant sources are online records which describe the family of the Rev. Christian Hoffman and mention that his daughter Elizabeth married Reuben Mock. The details are sufficiently different that I feel these two accounts came from independent sources:
The first is a RootsWeb post 16 Jan 2001 by Vanessa Taylor available in the HOFFMAN-L Archives:
"Rev. Christian Hoffman was born 15 Nov 1799 and died 15 Feb 867. He was the preacher of River Brethren in Woodbury Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He married Mary Longenecker born 16 Feb 1800 in Londonderry Township, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and died 24 Feb 1881 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Their children were Elizabeth Hoffman m Reuben Mock, Nancy Hoffman, Lydia Hoffman, Christian Hoffman m Annie Nancy Bassler, Susan Hoffman m Henry Guyer, Sara Hoffman m Jacob B. Stern, John Hoffman, Leah Hoffman m Jeremiah Hollinger and Isaac Hoffman."
The other HOFFMAN-L post 6 Aug 2001 provides additional details:
"Christian Hoffman was born 1799 in Pa. he was a Brethren Preacher he married Mary Longenecker b. 1800 Londonderry twp. Pa. they lived in Woodbury twp. children were: Elizabeth Hoffman b.1824 married Reuben Mock, Lydia Hoffman, Nancy Hoffman, Isaac Hoffman b. abt.1829, Christian Longenecker Hoffman b. Nov.13,1830 he married Annie Nancy Bassler, Sarah Hoffman b. Oct.24,1832 married Jacob B. Stern, John Hoffman b. abt 1838, Leah Ann Hoffman b. Oct.11,1840 married Jeremiah Hollinger, Susan Hoffman b. Feb.12,1843 married Henry S. Guyer."
Finally, the fourth item bearing on the question of the name of Reuben's wife is the Blair County history quoted above which gives personal details about Reuben's life and reports that he married Elizabeth Hoffman, a daughter of Rev. Christian Hoffman.
All of these sources together make me quite confident that Reuben's wife was named either Elizabeth Rachel Hoffman, or Rachel Elizabeth Hoffman, and that she changed from using Rachel to Elizabeth during her married life.
Richard Coeur Dillon, cited above, names Waterside, Bedford County for Reuben, and Martinsberg, Blair County, for Elizabeth, but it's uncertain whether he is reporting their birth places or where they lived while they were being brought up in their respective homes.
The eleven children of Reuben and Elizabeth (Hoffman) Mock: Christian H., Mary Ann, Lydia, Elisebeth, Samuel H., Margaret Magdalene "Maggie", Isaac Scott, Matilda Susan, Jacob Irvin, John R. and Emanuel David. 
i    Mock, Christian H. was born 1 Jan 1844 in Woodbury, Bedford, Pennsylvania, died 17 May 1912 and was buried in Martinburg, Blair, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Elizabeth Smith 1864/1865.  Elizabeth was born Feb 1846 in Waterside, Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 1915 in Martinburg, Blair, Pennsylvania.  She was the daughter of Ruben and Elizabeth (Nicodemus) Smith. 
We have from the Mock Bible of Evelyn Hirtle-George that Christian was recorded as "Christtopher", where his birth date was also recorded. He was listed as "Christin", or "Christine", a female aged 7, in the 1850 census of his father's home, and "Christian" (a male this time), 17, in the 1860 census. According to Richard C. Dillon, he was born on a large farm called Dry Hill near Woodbury in Bedford County. All of the family, and the Dillon grandchildren, as shown here are taken from Richard's Ancestors & Relatives of the Richard Coeur Dillon Family of Ohio, 1991, mentioned above.
In 1870 a Christopher Mock, age 27, was censused with wife Elizabeth, adjacent to John Hoffman, 32, and family, and then Mary Hoffman, 70, living alone, the latter being Christian's grandmother. Considering the known history of confusing Christian and Christopher, this would appear to be actually Christian H. Mock, son of Reuben and maternal grandson of Christian and Mary (Longenecker) Hoffman:

This is the same family, with Alice now named as Mary A., Ladie now as Maggie (presumably Lydia Margaret or v.v.), and Anna had apparently died young (she was not mentioned by Richard C. Dillon, op. cit.).
The 1900 census indicates that Christian and Elizabeth were married 35 years, hence in 1864/65, which is compatible with Mary Alice's birth in June of '65.

Dillon reports that Mary ALice was a charter member of Grace Methodist Church in Altoona, and a member of the American War Mothers, Altoona Chapter.
The three children of John Calvin and Mary Alice (Mock) Dillon: Harry Edgar, Chester E. and Ray E. 
i    Dillon, Harry Edgar was born May 1887 in Martinsburg, Blair, Pennsylvania and died 1967.  He was married (1) to Mary E. ____.  He was married (2) to Lillian Earle Faloon.  Lillian Earle was born 1881 in Redbank, Clarion, Pennsylvania and died 1963. 
The son of Harry and Lillian is Richard Coeur Dillon, born in Seattle Washington. He married Dona Marjorie Peterson, born in Forest City, Iowa. Their have four sons, Richard Coeur II, James Douglas, Peter Leigh and Christian Earle.
ii    Dillon, Chester E. was born Aug 1893 and died 10 Aug 1926. 
iii    Dillon, Ray E. was born 15 Dec 1898 in Martinsburg, Blair, Pennsylvania and died 1971.  He was married to Matilda Derr. 
A child of Ray E. and Matilda (Derr) Dillon: Mary Jane. 
1    Dillon, Mary Jane. 
2    Mock, Anna† was born 1867/1868 and died before 1880. 
3    Mock, Lydia "Maggie" was born 1869/1870 in Pennsylvania. 
Please see the note above concerning this daughter's name. Maggie could be a nickname for Madeline, Magdaline or Margaret.
4    Mock, Eleanor "Ella" was born 1873/1874 in Pennsylvania.  She was married to Earl N. Baugh. 
5    Mock, Gertrude was born Oct 1877 in Pennsylvania. 
Richard Coeur Dillon notes Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania after Gertrude's name.
6    Mock, Homer L. was born Nov 1879 in Pennsylvania. 
Homer L. Mock, in Altoona, Blair, Pennsylvania, was 32 years of age and working as a laborer in the P. R R. shops. He was living with Jesse W. and Esther M. Parks, and listed as brother-in-law [Series: T624 Roll: 1317 Page: 125]. Esther was 25 years old, and so born 1884/85.
In 1920 Homer Mock, in Altoona, was single, 40 years of age and a boarder in the home of John C. and Mary A Dillon, his sister.
7    Mock, Harry Calvin was born Nov 1881 in Blair, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Myrtle Snyder.  Myrtle was born 1885/1886 in Fulton, Pennsylvania. 
A GenForum post, posted by Jere S. Keefer, provides a window into Harry's family:
"Seek data on family of Harry Calvin Mock, born abt 1881, Blair Co., Pa who married Myrtle Snyder, born abt 1885 in Fulton Co., Pa. Children were Kenneth and Maria who married Thomas Kearney. Lived in Altoona, PA."
We know also a little concerning Harry through his censuses, all in Altoona, Blair, Pennsylvania. First, in his father's home in 1900, although the middle initial is incorrect: "Harry E. Mock, boarder, b Oct 1881, 18, single, Salesman, Groceries".

Adam and Mary A. Guyer were censused 1900 again in Woodbury Township, both aged 55 years. Mary was reported to have had four children, all living, and Myrtle, 33, and Oscar, 30, were still living at home.
Adam B. Guyer was censused 1910 as a widower, aged 65, in Bloomfield Township, Bedford County. He was living with Daniel J. and Myrtle Reininger, and listed as Father-in-Law
The four children of Adam B. and Mary Ann (Mock) Guyer: William H., Seward, Myrtle and Oscar. 
1    Guyer, William H. was born 1870/1871 in Pennsylvania. 
There were two men of that name born in Pennsylvania of age 28 in 1900, but the one in Blair County had a middle initial R. The other was located in the western part of the state in Beaver County, with wife Myrtle, and he appeared with Mytrle E. in 1920 as William H. in East Huntington Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. He was a 39 year old minister, and they had been married for 12 years with four children, Carlos M., 11, Jamie M., 9, Elizabeth, 6, and William M., 4. I feel that these are probably records of the son of Mary Ann and Adam, but warn the reader that it’s difficult to be sure of connections based on census records across the state. Myrtle was born in Ohio, her father in Ohio and her mother in Pennsylvania.
2    Guyer, Seward was born Oct 1871 in Pennsylvania and died 1902/1910.  He was married to Ada ____.  Ada was born in Pennsylvania. 
Seward was living in Blair County, north of Bedford, in 1900 with his wife Ada and daughter Mary:

Seward died before 1910, for Ada was censused as a widow living in Woodbury Borough, Bedford County that year with her young children Mary, 10, and Warren H., 8. She was shown with no occupation.
3    Guyer, Myrtle was born 1875/1877 in Pennsylvania.  She was married to Daniel J. Reininger.  Daniel J. was born 1880/1881 in Pennsylvania. 
Daniel J. and Myrtle Reininger were censused 1910 in in Bloomfield Township, Bedford, and her father Adam B. Guyer, 65, was living with them [Series: T624 Roll: 1311 Page: 242]. Daniel was 29, Myrtle 34, and they had been married eight years. I found neither I could find neither Daniel or Myrtle anywhere in the country in 1920, but a mis-spelling of his surname could effectively hide them.
4    Guyer, Oscar was born 1879 in Pennsylvania.  He was married to Ada ____.  Ada was born 1882/1883. 
Why Oscar didn't appear in the 1910 census with two sons is unknown, but he, a farmer, and his family were in South Woodbury Township, Bedford County in 1920:

There was a Charles F. Hartman, age 52 and married 10 years, in the 1900 census for North Woodbury Township, but that man was born in Maryland, and his wife's name was given as Lucinda. Given the errors in censuses, and since I don't have a death date for Lydia, I mention this here for future use in researching this family.
The two children of Charles F. and Lydia (Mock) Hartman: George R. and Jason. 
1    Hartman, George R. was born 1875/1876 in Pennsylvania. 
2    Hartman, Jason was born 1878/1879 in Pennsylvania. 
iv    Mock, Elisebeth was born 1849.

1920 Census, N. Woodbury Twp, Blair, PA

Anna's parents and Nicodemus grandparents appear in an Ancestry World Tree, but that source shows only three children in her own family, Virginia, Mary and W. Lloyd Mock, and provides no dates for them. Mary and Lloyd appear in the list of children as obtained from the IGI for Samuel and Anna, but Virginia does not. (The IGI entry for George and Mary (O'Haley) Nicodemus does not list Anna as a child.)
The seven children of Samuel H. and Anna Katherina (Nicodemus) Mock: Cora, Reuben, Virginia, Mary, Lloyd, Grace and Pearl. 
1    Mock, Cora was born 1877 in Pennsylvania. 
2    Mock, Reuben was born 1878/1879 in Pennsylvania. 
I was unable to find Reuben in Pennsylvania in the 1900 to 1920 censuses, nor anywhere in the country in 1900.
3    Mock, Virginia was born 1880/1881.  She was married to Harry Bonebreak.  Harry was born 1881/1882. 
Accepting the World Tree name of Virginia, but with no date, and married to a Bonebreak, but no first name, this census in Blair County in 1920 seems a strong possibility for the daughter of Samuel and Anna. It implies a birth date of 1880/81, which I accept here along with her husband's and child's names and ages. TABLE: TABBED Harry Bonebreak 38 Locomotive Machinist Virginia 39 Kathryn 11 ------------------------------ Census, Martinsburg, Blair, PA ENDTABLE
A child of Harry and Virginia (Mock) Bonebreak: Kathryn. 
i    Bonebreak, Kathryn was born 1909. 
4    Mock, Mary was born 1881 in Pennsylvania. 
This daughter was, however, clearly named as Leah, 2 months of age and born in April, in the 1880 census.
5    Mock, Lloyd was born 1891 in Pennsylvania. 
If the census age is off by ten years, he could be the Lloyd C. Mock (age 28) with wife Florence and two daughters censused in Baltimore in 1930, but I do not consider that identification very likely. Otherwise I've been unable to find Lloyd anywhere in the country in any census other than his father's in 1910.
6    Mock, Grace was born 1892 in Pennsylvania. 
7    Mock, Pearl was born 1895 in Pennsylvania.  She was married to George A. Wineland.  George A. was born 1893/1894 in Pennsylvania. 
Pearl's family has been identified only because her father was censused with she and her husband in 1920.
A child of George A. and Pearl (Mock) Wineland: Samuel E.. 
i    Wineland, Samuel E. was born 1918/1919 in Pennsylvania. 
vi    Mock, Margaret Magdalene "Maggie" was born 7 Sep 1855 in near Woodbury, Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 13 Nov 1946 in Williamsburg, Blair, Pennsylvania.  She was married (1) to Edward Noble.  Edward died 1880/1890.  She was married (2) to David S. Lynn 20 Dec 1891. 
The records for Margaret are, at first sight, difficult to interpret. Her obituary, copied below, says she was married first to Edward Noble, by whom she had three sons, Emerson, Roy and Edward, and was married second in 1891 to David Lynn, by whom she had one son, Lloyd. I had originally that her first marriage was 30 Dec 1891, but this was probably a misprint for 30 Dec 1871.
The first marriage is documented in her 1880 census adjacent to her father "Rhewben":

It's not obvious from this one census alone, but all of these children except Lloyd were by David's first wife Kate, and their report to the census taker that he and Maggie had both been married 22 years is somewhat misleading.

Isaac and Imelda's marriage record was posted by Diana L. Mock on the MOCK-GEN-L board:

There was an extensive biography of Isaac online, citing Twentieth Century History of Altoona and Blair County, Pennsylvania, and Representative Citizens by Jesse C. Sell:
"ISAAC S. MOCK, one of Roaring Spring's leading business men, engaged in plumbing and heater work and dealing in all kinds of roofing, spouting and sheet metal, handling the Ideal steam and hot water heater and making a specialty of lightning rods, has been established here since 1904. He was born in Woodbury Township, Bedford County, Pa., November 7, 1856, and is a son of Reuben and Elizabeth (Hoffman) Mock.
"Isaac S. Mock was reared in Woodbury Township and obtained his early instruction in the public schools and later attended Juniata College, under the government of the Brethren church at Huntingdon, Pa., having had previous instruction of excellent character at Woodbury and at New Enterprise, under Profs. Clouse, Cotton, Saylor, Vaughn and others. After leaving school he taught for eight terms and then accepted a position as clerk in the freight office of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company at Altoona. Still later he became station agent at Ore Hill for the same road but resigned after three years of service in order to perfect his business education and took a course in the Spencerian Commercial College at Cleveland, O. He was graduated there as a stenographer and then accepted a position in the auditing department of the C. C. C. & I. Railroad Company, at Cleveland and acceptably performed the duties of that position until he felt like returning to Bedford County about one year later.
"On September 12, 1888, Mr. Mock was married to Miss Imelda Hair, who is a sister of Edward W., Scott. Horace G. and Clarence Hair, well known citizens of Roaring Spring. Mr. and Mrs. Mock have three children: Frances W., Margaret E. and Palmer.
"From 1888 until 1904, Mr. Mock was general manager of the landed estate of Peter S. Duncan, of Hollidaysburg, owner of the Ore Hill mines. He has been a very active and useful citizen since he came to Roaring Spring in 1904, not only serving as a councilman but exercising his rights as a citizen and using his influence for public improvements and increased morality. He is a Prohibitionist in his views on public matters and is president of the Anti-Saloon League of Roaring Spring. He is identified with Lodge No. 539, F. & A. M., Roaring Spring and for ten years has served as its secretary. He belongs to the Methodist Episcopal Church and is one of its trustees.
"In 1904 and 1906 he was the choice of the Democratic and Prohibition parties for the state legislature, but in 1904 withdrew because of not having been a resident of the district the required time. In 1906, notwithstanding that the parties for which he was a candidate were far in the minority he ran far ahead of their party vote with the liquor men and saloon interests solidly against him."
Imelda Hair was a sister of Edward W., Scott, Horace G. and Clarence Hair, well known citizens of Roaring Spring, Blair County. Their children graduated from the Roaring Spring Borough High School, Frances in 1906, and Palmer and Margaret in 1911.
The three children of Isaac Scott and Imelda (Hair) Mock: Frances W., Margaret E. and Palmer. 
1    Mock, Frances W. was born 1889 in Pennsylvania. 
2    Mock, Margaret E. was born 1892 in Pennsylvania. 
3    Mock, Palmer was born 1893 in Pennsylvania. 
viii    Mock, Matilda Susan was born 14 Aug 1859 in Pennsylvania and died 16 May 1937 in Roaring Springs, Pennsylvania.  She was married to Thomas Zook Replogle 11 Nov 1886 in Woodbury Twp., Bedford, Maryland.  Thomas Zook was born 1857/1858 in Pennsylvania and died 1910/1920 in Rhode Island.  He was the son of Daniel Brumbaugh and Elizabeth Snider (Zook) Replogle. 
My photo copy of the Bible birth date for Matilda is extremely faint, and I've accepted Evelyn's reading, as she has access to the original. I seem to read the day as 18, rather than 14, but I also read the year as 1864?, which is definitely wrong. Her 1860 census age of 10 months fixes her birth as in 1859, and the Bible reads August.
Michael A., Bedford County Marriage Records, Closson Press, Apolo, Pennsylvania, 1989] reads "Tillie S. Mock, 25" which age is off by two years. The full record was posted on MOCK-GEN-L by Diana L. Mock:
"Thomas Z. Replogle, age 28, a jeweler living in South Woodbury Township, PA, son of Daniel E. and Elizabeth Replogle, and Tillie S. Mock, age 25 living in Woodbury, PA, daughter of Reuben and Elizabeth Mock, were married November 11, 1886, by Rev. W. L. Spanogle at Woodbury, Pennsylvania [Bedford Marriages Vol 1 #248]".
This couple had four children born in Pennsylvania, but sometime after 1897 they moved to Providence, Rhode Island, where Thomas became a postmaster. One small mystery in the two censuses in that location is that son William, born 1896/97 according to the 1920 census, does not appear in the 1910 census, when he would have been about 13 years old. I did not find him indexed as living in any other household in 1910, but if he had been living with another Replogle family, the index wouldn't list him.

Despite their censuses in Rhode Island 1910 and 1920, Vanessa Taylor, on a now defunct web page, hasd Thomas' death in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania. She was also the source of the dates on his parents.
Linda M Cochran's GenCircles Family Tree gives specific birth dates for all of the children, including twin Celia for whom I have no other source. I've also adopted Linda's names for the daughters where other sources have first and middle names reversed.

ix    Mock, Jacob Irvin was born 12 Dec 1861 in Woodbury, Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 26 Nov 1950 in Erie, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Minnie Catherine Bassler.  Minnie Catherine was born 7 Oct 1866 in Martinsburg, Blair, Pennsylvania and died 20 Sep 1903 in Erie, Pennsylvania.  She was the daughter of Jacob S. and Lydia (Shank) Bassler. 
I have had no success in finding Jacob and Minnie in 1900 or later censuses.
The source for Minnie's children, dates and parentage is by Vanessa (Barry) Taylor, op. cit
Also, for her siblings, see Biographical and Portrait Cyclopedia of Blair Co, PA, Samuel T. Wiley, Philadelphia, 1892:
"November 13, 1855, Rev. Jacob S. Bassler married Lydia Shank, of Waynesboro, Franklin county, and they have four children: Anna B., wife of Levi Acker, a retired farmer of this county; Susan E., married Jacob Gresser, who is now engaged in farming; J. Harry, who married Fannie Coffman, and is a machinist of the firm of Snoeberger Bros. & Bassler; and Minnie C., married J. I. Mock, of Woodbury, a teacher in the public schools of North Woodbury township."
The two children of Jacob Irvin and Minnie Catherine (Bassler) Mock: Robert Chalico and Lydia Eldon. 
1    Mock, Robert Chalico was born about 1895.  He was married to Joanna Wertz. 
he may be a living descendant of Peter Mock of Maryland.]
From this, Robert C., Jr., oldest son, was born 1928/29, born when Jacob was about 68/69 years, so I split the difference and estimate Robert C, Sr. was born 34 yrs after 1861, or 1895.
If my rough estimate of 1895 is badly in error, Robert C., Sr. could have been the 17 year old Robert C. Mock in training 1920 at the US Great Lakes Naval Training Station in Lake County, Illinois
2    Mock, Lydia Eldon was born 2 Feb 1890.  She was married to Clinton B. Blyberg. 
x    Mock, John R. was born 1863/1864 in Pennsylvania.  He was married to Ida Zimmerman 1891/1892.  Ida was born 1865/1866 in Springfield Twp., Clarke, Ohio.  She was the daughter of ____ and Susan (____) Zimmerman. 
John and Ida were censused 1900, 1910 and 1920 in Woodbury Township, Bedford County with Cora Mock, daughter of John's brother Samuel, in their home each of those years. In 1910 Ida was noted as not having any children, and the two of them had been married for 18 years.
Also that year Susan Zimmerman, 72 and born in Maryland of Maryland born parents, was in their home and listed as John's Mother-in-Law. There is a couple found in the Ancestral File of the Family History Library, named Isaac and Susan (Hass) Zimmerman who had a daughter Sara Jane b21 Aug 1854 in Sunbury, Northumberland, Pennsylvania. Whether or not this couple are Ida's parents I cannot judge.
John and Ida were censused 1900 through 1920 in Woodbury Township with his niece Cora Mock, daughter of his brother Samuel:

xi    Mock, Emanuel David was born 1865/1866 in near Woodbury, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania and died 13 Feb 1953 in Cheswick, Pennsylvania, USA.  He was married to Ida Florence Snider.  Ida Florence was born 24 Sep 1870 in Taylor Twp., Blair, Pennsylvania and died in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 
Emanuel and Ida are the grandparents of Evelyn (Mock) Hirtle George, who provided the Mock Bible, cited earlier, from which so much information has been obtained.

The two children of Emanuel David and Ida Florence (Snider) Mock: Harold Snyder David and Evelyn F. 
1    Mock, Harold Snyder David was born 24 Jun 1895 in Tyrone, Blair, Pennsylvania and died 1 Feb 1970 in Cheswick, Allegheny, Pennsylvania.  He was married to Alice Lina Marcy 22 Jun 1922 in Concordia, Kansas.  Alice Lina was born 25 Jan 1897 in Concordia and died 10 Jan 1992 in Cheswick, Pennsylvania. 
Names and dates for this family were were provided to me by Evelyn, op. cit.
The two children of Harold Snyder David and Alice Lina (Marcy) Mock: Evelyn Alice and Harold David. 
i    Mock, Evelyn Alice was born 24 May 1925 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  She was married (1) to Royal Tremaine Hirtle 28 Aug 1948 in Cheswick, Pennsylvania.  Royal Tremaine was born 25 Aug 1925 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and died 15 Aug 1986 in Cheswick, Pennsylvania.  She was married (2) to James Calvin George 6 Oct 1991 in Cheswick.  James Calvin was born 19 Jun 1930 in Tarentum, Pennsylvania.

5    Mock, Priscilla† was born 6 Feb 1821. 
6    Mock, Manuel† was born 28 Mar 1824 and died before 1830. 
Manuel's name as christened was quite probably Emanuel. Since Priscilla and Manuel do not appear as young children in the 1830 census of Christian's household, we must assume that they died young before that date.
7    Mock, Magdalene "Lanah" was born 19 Nov 1826, died 7 Jan 1913 in Bedford, Pennsylvania and was buried in Pleasantville, Cemetery, Bedford, Pennsylvania.  She was married to Jacob Emerick 9 Oct 1845 in Pleasantville, Pennsylvania.  Jacob was born 13 May 1810 in Germany, died 7 Oct 1891 in Bedford, Pennsylvania and was buried in Pleasantville, Cemetery. 
29 Jan 1997]. His year of birth, 1827, for Magdalena is one year later than the Mock Bible entry, and would be only ten months before the birth of Samuel as recorded in the latter source. He cites the burial records of Pleasantville Cemetery, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania which shows "... Jacob Emerick (dates) wife Magdalene (____) 11-19-1827, 1-7-1913".
Magdalene's mother Mary was residing with Magdalene and Jacob in the 1860 census. (Ten years later Mary was with her daughter Margaret Teeter in Iowa.)

Bud Betts [Personal Communication] has the Marriage Certificate of Magdalene and Jaob Emerick. Jacob's father came over supposedly as a fur trading partner of John Jacob Astor who had come from Germany in 1784, set up the American Fur Company and died in 1848. Jacob bought 91+ acres of land 12 Nov 1862 in St Clair Township, Bedford Co., Pennsylvania [Patent Book H, v. 65, p. 28].
The four children of Jacob and Magdalene "Lanah" (Mock) Emerick: Mary Jane, Annetta, Margaret and Idella C. 
i    Emerick, Mary Jane was born 1849 in Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 24 Apr 1926 in Pleasantville, Pennsylvania.  She was married to William Alexander Peterson 20 Jul 1866 in Johnstown, Bedford, Pennsylvania.  William Alexander was born 1842 in Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 6 Feb 1922. 
A child of William Alexander and Mary Jane (Emerick) Peterson: Magdalene Jeanette. 
1    Peterson, Magdalene Jeanette was born 9 May 1880 and died 15 Mar 1964.  She was married to John Faint 2 Apr 1903 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  John was born 27 Jun 1879 and died 6 May 1953 in Abington, Pennsylvania. 
Madalene and John's daughter Doris (Faint) Betts (b 1918) is the mother of Bud Betts, and their son George Harold Faint (1909-1986) was the father of Art Faint, Bud's genealogy research collaborator.
The two children of John and Magdalene Jeanette (Peterson) Faint: George Harold and Doris.

ii    Emerick, Annetta was born 11 Oct 1852 in Bedford Co, Pennsylvania and died 15 Nov 1922.  She was married to Espy Barefoot 13 Feb 1876 in Bedford Co.  Espy was born in Bedford Co. 
From some source now lost I had 11 Oct 1859 birthdate for Anetta, but since in the 1860 census she was listed as seven years old, this must have been a misprint for 1852.
The five children of Espy and Annetta (Emerick) Barefoot: Idella, Thomas, Charles, Harry and Jacob. 
1    Barefoot, Idella was born about 1875 in Bedford Co.  She was married to Wilson Mock in Bedford Co. 
I don't have Wilson's ancestry, but note that Idella's maternal grandmother, Magdalena Mock, daughter of Christian, had a first cousin Wilson Mock, born 1834 in Ohio to Abraham and Catherine Mock. There were two other Mock families on Wilson's 1900 census page, Solomon of a previous generation next door, and Isaac born six months after Wilson, as well as a Henry H. Barefoot born 1860.

5    Seese, Jerry was born in Bedford Co. 
8    Mock, Samuel was born 19 Sep 1828 in St. Clair, Bedford, Pennsylvania and died 1857.  He was married to Ruthanna Wright. 
Samuel was presumably named after his father's brother, who moved to Ohio along with others of the family His age is from the census of his father's household in 1850. He was named as beneficiary, and required to support his mother Mary, in his father's will, described above.
Other Samuel Mocks:
A Samuel Mock was married to Hannah Stombach 13 Sep 1849, both of Union Twp, by the Rev. Ziegler [Whisker, 1986, v1, p39]. In 1850 a Samuel Mock, 23, and his wife Hannah, 21 were censused in Union Township. However, four of the children of Peter Mock, Jr., of Bedford (unrelated to our line) married Stombaughs. Therefore, whether or not these records are of Samuel, son of Christian, is unclear, as the near matchs in name, age and location make the records difficult to assign unequivocally.
Ruthanna was censused (Bedford Co., Pennsylvania?) 1860 with Annie, 3 years old.
A child of Samuel and Ruthanna (Wright) Mock: Annie. 
i    Mock, Annie was born 19 Aug 1856 in Pennsylvania, died 3 Feb 1878 in Clayton County, Iowa and was buried in Brown Cemetery, Clayton, Iowa. 
v. VI, no. 2, pg 19, Spring, 1997]. He cites another unidentified court record to the effect that Thomas Oldham was appointed guardian 28 May 1879 for Elva Louise Mock, minor child of Annie Mock, deceased. Finally, he reports that Oldham was replaced as guardian 15 Sep 1879 by J.A. Mock of Clayton Co., IA, where Elva lived.
Annie and Elva Louise are represented in the census records of Clayton County, Iowa. In 1870 Anna, aged 13, resided in the home of John and Ruthanna Hammond of Mallory Township. Also in their home was their son James H., 25, and daughter Anna H., 15. Then, in 1880 in the same town, John and Ruth A. Hammond had in their house Louisa Mock, aged 2, and named as their granddaughter. It must be inferred that their son James was the father of Louisa, but since she carried the surname Mock, they must not have married. I cannot locate either James or the guardian J. A. Mock in the 1880 census.
That both of Louisa's grandmothers were named Ruthanna is something of a coincidence. However, that may be my misinterpretation. Ruthanna (Wright) Mock found herself a young widow with a baby less than a year old when Samuel Mock died in 1857. Did she go west to join her family in Iowa? There was a G. W. Wright in Mallory Township, aged 50 in 1860, who could have been her father. He and his wife Lucy, aged 44, had seven children ranging in age from 19 down to 4, and an eldest daughter Ruthanna in her twentys would fit in with that sequence quite well. In this case, we're postulating that Ruthanna married John Hammond before 1870 (possibly much earlier), but since at that time he had children 15 and 25 years of age, then his marriage to Ruthanna (Wright) Mock would have been his second, also. An 1850 census for John Hammond, aged 34 with a five year old son James, in either Pennsylvania or Iowa, giving his wife's name, would settle this possibility one way or the other, but I've had no success in locating one. And an 1860 census for Ruthanna would also be very helpful. (I at one time had a note that she was censused that year with a three year old Annie, but cannot now find her in any Pennsylvania or Iowa location.)
John and Ruthanna are buried in the Brown Cemetery on the southern border of Clayton County, just north of Colesburg, Delaware County. With them in the cemetery is buried Annie T. Mock, died "3 Feb 1878 aged 21y 5m 15d d/o S. & R.A. Mock"

Margaret Mock  &  David Burger Teeter
Peter 1 , Christian 2 , Margaret 3 Teeter Top  

Margaret Mock was born 1 May 1817 in Hagerstown, Washington, Maryland, died 31 Oct 1901 in Wamego, Pottawatomie, Kansas and was buried in Polly Creek Cemetery, Laclede, Pottawatomie, Kansas. 
Margaret was married to David Burger 26 Nov 1835. 
David Burger Teeter was born 27 Feb 1809 in Morrison's Cove, Bedford, Pennsylvania, died 9 Apr 1883 in Wamego, Pottawatomie, Kansas and was buried in Polly Creek Cemetery, Laclede, Pottawatomie, Kansas.  He was the son of John Shively and Susanna Heffner (Burger) Teeter. 

David was assessed 1846 as a wheelwright on 61 acres of his own land valued at $425 in South Woodberry, Bedford, Pennsylvania. He moved in September or October, 1847 to Jefferson Co., Iowa. He was censused there in 1850 as a carpenter, in 1852 and 1856 he was assessed as a cabinetmaker, and 1860 censused as a farmer with assets of $3000 and $640:

Two households before David the family of an Alexander Clark, 54, was censused with no wife and six children ranging from 8 to 21 (the three eldest being sons). Also in that home was a Margret Teter, 22 and born in Pennsylvania, keeping house. David's brother John owned land just a mile away, and had 10 children of whom I know the names of only three. It seems likely that Margret was one of the daughters of John and Sarah.
David originally entered 40 acres of land 27 Nov 1847 in Sec 9 of Des Moines Twp, but sold that tract for $50 two months later to Samuel Brown. (Samuel figures prominently in land transactions involving not only David and his brother Abraham, but also several of the son's of his uncle Isaac Teeter, two of whom married Brown daughters.) At that time, 24 Jan 1848, he purchased 135 acres in Sec. 4 from William Olney, using in part a mortgage of $250 on the new land from Samuel Brown. He was listed as a voter in Des Moines Twp. in 1848, along with Abrahm and Isaac K. Teeter.
Although he sold a 3 acre patch in 1850 to his neighbor Joseph Sketoe [G:338], David and Margaret resided on that farm until they left Iowa. In 1863 he borrowed $225 from John Haydon, mortgaging the farm until he paid off the note six months later [R:502].
In 1860 David loaned $140 to his brother Abraham, taking a mortgage on Abraham and Rebecca's Lots 7 & 8 of Block 2 in the town of Absecom [R:253]. Located in Des Moines Twp., and described as both Absecam and Absecom in the Town Plat recorded 27 Jun 1855 (although later usually called Absecum), this town was five miles west of Libertyville. It was settled as a trading post and stage coach stop as early as 1846, and was busy until 1859 when the stage coach route was changed. By 1870 no trace of the town of 80 lots could be found, and the fate of the mortgage held by David and Elizabeth is unknown.
The land that David and Margaret farmed abuts on its east side the Dunkard, or German Brethren Cemetery, where lie many of our Teeter and Alford relatives. Their son John M., who died 17 Mar 1859 at the age of 20, was the first Teeter to be buried there. He with four more of the sons who died young are in the first row along the Teeter side of the cemetery. So also are Susanna Heffner (Burger) Teeter, David's mother, and, in row 9, Martha (Weller) Alford, mother of John Weller Alford who married David and Margaret's daughter Elizabeth. Martha's son William and wife Hannah, David's brother Abraham and his wife Rebecca Ann (a daughter of Martha Alford), and five of Abraham and Rebecca's children are among the twenty Teeters who lie in thisBrethren Cemetery SE of Batavia.
The Brethren Church had been established there in 1838, when it was first organized by David Peebler and John Garber, the latter becoming the first minister. The meetings were held in private homes, schoolhouses, and barns for twenty years, until the first church was build 1858 in Sec. 4, probably on or adjacent to what is now the cemetery land.
Iowa conducted a state census in 1856, in which David B. and Margaret Teeter, 47 and 39, were found in Des Moines, Jefferson, Iowa. David was listed as a cabinet maker, and all seven of their children, John through Francis, were at home.
The year 1861 was a sad one for David and Margaret. They had twins in June of 1860, James William and Mary Agnes, but James died 13 Apr 1861 before his first birthday. Then 13 July their seven year old son Francis D. died, and on 29 August their son David M. died 20 days after his thirteenth birthday. Their 20 year old son John M. had died just two years previously, and their son Frederick S., five years of age in 1861, was destined to die two weeks before his thirteenth birthday.
The couple moved in 1874 to Wamego, Pottawatomie, Kansas, where they were censused 1880. Their two youngest children, Mary 19 and Joseph 17, were still at home with them that year.
The entire family's birth data and some death data are from David's Bible, entries for dates before May 1869 are all in one pen and hand. The 1950 census ages for the family don't agree at all well with the dates in the bible. I've noted the discrepancies for each individual.
David was a carpenter, wheelwright, and cabinet-maker and farmer. He spent some years as a teacher in both German and English, and held many local offices in his township, Deacon of the German Baptist Church for forty years [Anon., 1890].
The Bethren Church in Des Moines Twp., Iowa where many of the family are buried was established in 1838, and closed 1974.
David died Monday, 9 Apr 1883 according to their obituaries in the "Kansas Reporter" and "Kansas Agriculturist", both Wamego, 13 Apr 1883. They were buried in Polly Creek Cemetery, now called Stratton Cemetery, south of Laclede, Pottawatomie Co., beside the graves of his wife and her mother.
His tombstone reads:
    DAVID B.

      DIED

and directly behind is a small, vertical footstone with the initials D. B. T. This death date and age implies a birth date of Tuesday, 28 Feb 1809.
31 Oct 1901]. This is in apparent conflict with the fact that her father was taxed in St. Clair township, Bedford, in 1808, and censused there in 1820. See the discussion above concerning Christian and Mary's moves before settling in St. Clair.
Margaret was living with her son George W. Teeter in Onaga City, Mill Creek Township, Pottawatomie, Kansas, in the 1 Jun 1900 census:

She and David were members of the German Baptist church. Her obituary said she was to be buried in Stratton Cemetery, south of Laclede, beside the graves of her husband and mother. This was called Polly Creek Cemetery when I visited it to see and photograph the tombstones, which are still in good condition. Her tombstone reads:
    MARGARET
     TEETER
Died Oct. 31, 1901
   Aged 84 Yrs.
  5 Mos. 30 Ds.

which implies a birth date of Thursday, 1 May 1817, in full agreement with her birth as recorded in the Mock Bible.
The twelve children of David Burger and Margaret (Mock) Teeter: Christian, John M., George W., Elizabeth, Samuel M., David M.†, Jacob E., Francis D.†, Frederic S.†, James William†, Mary Agnes and Joseph Eby.
