I am a descendant of George Nock (b. 1766) of Halifax, Nova Scotia. He ran a brewery there and during the War of 1812, his ship the Nancy ran the British Blockade to bring in the hops to make the beer. In 1826 his son, Samuel Nock (b. 1804), left NS and went to Louisville, Ky. My grandfather, Robert Joseph Nock, descends from him. Robert came to New Orleans to work in the early 1900's. He married and raised a family in Louisiana. I would like to compare notes with you on this family.
