I, too, am descended from this Joseph Shockey who was first married to Polly Jones in 1803.My ancestor was one of their 11 children, Catherine Shockey, b. 15 April 1815.Polly Jones died in 1823 and Joseph married Margaret Hartman on Nov 9, 1828.Daniel, Jobe and William were children by this second marriage.They are listed on the 1850 Hampshire Co., VA Census:
SHOCKEY, Joseph, age 75, Farmer, b. VA Margaret, age 56, b. VA William, age 18 Jobe, age 16 Daniel, age 13
Joseph's parents were Valentine Shockey and Barbara Bixler.Valentine was the oldest son of John Christopher Shockey (Johan Christoffel Schacke)who immigrated to America from Germany in 1737.
