I stumbled across the earlier posting for Adam Shock, but as it last had activity 2001, I can only assume that the contact information of the persons involved is out of date.
I am a descendant of Adam Shock, (b. 1765 Bedford Co. PA) By 1784, he was living in Montgomery Co. Ohio, and married Barbara Hoover (b.? Maryland).They had a large family (15 according to our family research, but that point may be incorrect as the earlier posting says 12), one of which was a child named Johnas (5th child?). Again, according to records, Johnas married 3 times - having a total of 8 children by his second wife, one of which was John Shock (b. 1846 Montgomery Co OH), who married Amanda Lampkins around 1870.Their 5th child was James Shock (b. 1884). He married Bertha Wogoman in 1910, and their second child was Raymond Arthur (b. 1915), my paternal grandfather.
Like the posting from Ms. Nichols back in 2001, we are struggling to find any information about Adam's background. The family history we have going back as far as Adam is relativley clear.Is there a reliable family record that goes back that far?
Thank you in advance
-Eric Shock (b. 1977 Montgomery Co. Ohio) Salisbury, North Carolina
ps I apologize for any gaps in the family tree that I have given, but my information is coming from my father, who has the actual records in his possession.
