Hello Zook researchers and descendants:
I have been searching for the parents of my great great grandmother Nancy Anne Harvey-Johnson 1841-1919.
Believed her parents to be Phillip & Elizabeth Harvey of Fulton Co., Indiana - have proven that their daughter Nancy Ann bn 1841 is not the same woman as my ancestor- my loss is your gain as I restart from square one - would like to share the bricks that no longer are part of my Harvey brick wall.....They are part someone's family.
I have included a link at the end of this post for you to be able to do further research.

EDWARD ZOOK, a leading tinner and plumber of Rochester, was born in Wayne County, Ind., June 5, 1848. His father, John Zook, a tinner by trade, was born in Pennsylvania, came to the Hoosier state in the days of Indian trading and trapping. He was engaged in the stove and tinware business in Hagerstown, Wayne County, for a time, but in later life settled on a farm in Wayne township, Fulton County, where he died in 1880. John Zook, our subject's grandfather was born in Europe. His young and vigorous manhood was passed in Pennsylvania. Edward Zook's mother was Mary Mogle, whose father, Solomon Mogle, was a Pennsylvania German and farmer, Edward is the third of four children. The first, Harry Zook, was last known of in Kansas, some eighteen years ago. The other living ones are: William, residing at Fulton, Ind., and Emma, wife of Joseph Studebaker. Edward Zook was given only a meager education, from the country schools. He began the battles of life at the age of fourteen years, as a farm hand. In 1865 he tired of this life that promised nothing but endless toil and secured a situation with Johnson & Bro. at Logansport to learn his trade. With the exception of one year spent in Camden, Ind., he remained in Logansport till 1872, when he came to Rochester. His only capital was his industry and perseverance. For ten years he was employed continuously by one firm of Rochester, and was then elected to the office of town marshal, in which office he served one year. He then opened a small tin-shop in the rear of Weil & Peterson's hardware store. In 1892 he moved into his present storeroom, where he has successfully continued in business. Mr. Zook was married while in Camden, Ind., in January, 1873, to Louisa, a daughter of W.D. Eidson, a miller of Wabash, Ind. The only child of this marriage is Venina, wife of John W. McMahan, of Rochester, whose only child is Edwin L., aged eighteen months. Mr. Zook owns a nice home on Main street; is chief of the fire department; is an Odd Fellow, Mason and K.O.T.M. He is a republican and is now county coroner, elected with no effort on his part and by a large majority.
