From Memoirs of the Miami Valley, pages 503&504:
Louis Mock, the beginning of whose agricultural experience in Butler county was coincident with the early history of the county's real growth, and who was for an extended lifetime one of the prosperous and prominent agriculturists of Madison township, passed the entire period of his active career in close communion with the soil. A man of real worth and ability, of high character and marked public spirit, he was widely and well known, and when he died, September, 1909, there were many to mourn his loss.
Mr. Mock was born in Germany, January 12, 1844, a son of Godfried and Hannah (Flindchpach) Mock, natives of that country. The family emigrated to the United States in search of greater opportunities than they could enjoy in their own land, in 1853, and found conditions to their liking in the vicinity of Germantown, O., where for some years they lived on a farm.
Later in life the father removed with his family to Madison township, Butler County, where he continued to be successfully engaged in agricultural operations during the remainder of a long, active and useful life.
He and his worthy wife were members of the United Brethren church and the parents of five children, namely: Louis; Christopher; Mollie, who married Henry Selby; Elizabeth, deceased; and Caroline, who married Daniel Sinkey, of Madison township.
The boyhood of Louis Mock was divided between attending school and working on the home farm, and he was reared in a family in which due attention was given to proper training along the lines of industry and the value of money. He resided at home until the time of his marriage, in January, 1868, to Miss Maggie Kohnle, who was born in Germany, a daughter of Gottlieb and Christina (Kramer) Kohnle, who came to the United States in 1854, and settled at Germantown, where they made their home for five years.
The father of Mrs. Mock was a baker and miller by vocations, and in later life went to Dayton, where he owned and operated a mill for five years, and where his death occurred at the age of sixty years. He was one of the industrious and honorable men of his locality and had numerous friends and well-wishers among his fellow-citizens, whose confidence he never betrayed in business affairs. His widow survived him for a long period, and was eighty years of age at the time she died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mock, in Madison township.
There were seven children in the Kohnle family: Gottlieb, a retired miller of St. Marys, Ohio; John, a baker at Los Angeles, Cal.; Lawrence, deceased, who was a miller; Maggie, now Mrs. Mock; George, a baker by trade, for thirty years a member of the Regular army, with which he died while serving in the Philippine Islands; Fred, an Inspector at Dayton, O.; and Henry, a moulder of that city.
Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Mock:
Hannah, who married Alvin Leiwig and has ten children, - Emma, Florence, Windsor, Helen, Bessie, Elva, Rowina, Ethel, LeRue and Claris;
Katie, who married L. A. Longman, a farmer of Madison township and has one son, Russell; and
Sadie, who married John Gilbert, an engineer of Middletown, and has three children, - Ruth, Harold and Willodine.
Hope this helps.
