Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
The smoking gun sort of proof you may be looking for (a specific will or deed), has not been uncovered, however, the relationship is certainly a reasonable conclusion based on the available evidence. Johann Georg and Anna Catharina (Maurer) Schock can be concluded to be the same as the George and Catherine Shock who appear in the records of Bedford County, PA and Washington Co. MD. Catherine's father, Michael Maurer, and several of the Maurer/Schwingel relatives moved from Lebanon to the same area of Washington Co. MD at the same time (a sister of George may have moved as well). The area of concern would be whether the George and Catherine of Lebanon Co. & Bedford County, Hopewell Tp. PA are the same as the George and Catherine of Bedford/Somerset County, Londonderry Tp. The former was last recorded in 1779, and the latter first recorded in 1788. These locals are not unreasonably far apart, both couples are of the same approximate age, and use naming practices consistant with a relationship to the Maurer family (Simon Shock conceivably being named for Catherine's brother, Simon Maurer). I suspect that something my be found in early Bedford County deeds that would help strengthen the conclusion.
