Here's what I've come up with William Hocker married Alice ? and in the late 1500's emigrated from Germany to Wales.They had Nicholas who was born sometime before 1635 (probably close to the turn of the century).Nicholas's wifes name is unknown.They had John in 1635 and he married Mary Green in 1659.They emigrated from Wales to Virginia and then quickly settled in Montgomery County, Maryland.They had Nicholas in 1686 and he married Sophia Sims (b. 1686).They had Philip (one L) in 1716 and he married Margaret Pruitt (b. 1720) in 1748.They had Philip II (as our family lovingly calls him) in 1750 and he married Dorcas Barnes (b. 1754) - we saw their graves this weekend at Goshan cemetary in Beaver Dam, KY.They had another Philip in 1786 and he married Harriet Redmon (b. 1785).There's more but if this isn't the Hocker line that you're from then it's of no interest.If you are then we're related and I've been able to trace back 14 generations of this line.
