Shock Family Genealogy Forum
I was wondering if my Maria Shock was the same Maria shock mentioned in your gen web posting.
My family tree has a Maria Shock who married a David Tharp(m Oct 9 1838).They had a number of children: Orlando, Sally, James, Martha, Henry, Thomas, David, Maria Elizabeth( Maria was Davids second wife) I have a date of death for the Maria who married David Tharp as 28 June 1872.
Family lore has it that she was somehow distantly related to Jefferson Davis .
Does any of this ring a bell?
