I have been doing extensive research into my family ancestry....I have found in 1790 census John Shock, Sr( He and 2 of his other brothers were supposedly mercenary soldiers in the revolutionary war) lived in Lancaster, Manor twp. Pa. I have all the census records. He had quite a large family...One of his sons John Shock, jr. b. 1793 in Lancaster, Pa is shown to have gotten land from him in 1825. As a matter of fact, most all the shocks/schocks moved out of Pa before the 1830 census. John Shock, Sr. is listed in Pulaski County Ark. in the 1830 census. John Shock, Jr. is listed in the 1820 PA census in Lancaster, Pa Manor Twp. John Shock, JR. married (1st) Sally Earhart(Va.)1817 then married Elizabeth Lutz (from Lancaster)...I am looking for the place where JOhn and "Betsy" were married...speculation is they were married in Augusta County, Va or in Lancaster,Pa. around 182? If anyone has any info or would like some from me.. email me : Missyonweb@aol.com
