Re: hoch switerland-australia 1800s
I am descended from Geo. W. Hoch, II, who was born in/around Carlisle, Cumberland, Co., Pa. 9-2-1844, a son of Geo. W. Hoch, I and Elizabeth Burkholder Hoch. He was a member of the 18th Pa. Cavalry during the Civil War. His family biography claims to be descended from 4 hoch brothers who came to America in the early 1700s. This sounds very much like the Hoch family of Berks and Bucks Co.'s, Pa.
I am missing the 1860 US Census for Cumberland Co., Pa. to confirm parents' and siblings' names.
I would be gland to exchange any info.
