Parents of Jacob J. Hock
I am looking for the parents of Jacob Joseph Hock. His last name could have been spelled Hauck. He was born in either 1846, 1847 or 1849 in Alsace Lorraine or Hesse Domisted. He had a sister named Marie Lafeve, who according to my great uncle lived in France. Jacob J. Hock’s parents apparently gave him a years trip to America because he could not decided if he wanted to become a priest. His parents owned a sauerkraut factory. He came to New York and married Catherine Kenney/Kenny on June 4, 1871, in New York, New York. Jacob Hock and Catherine Kenney had the following children: Mary Ann Hock,Joseph George Hock, Charlotte Catherine Hock,Reuben Benjamin Hock, John William Hock, Benjamin Hock, Josephine Hilda Hock,James Joseph Hock,Theresa Geneviene Hock, and Henry Hock. Jacob J. Hock and Catherine Kenney moved to Gretna, Louisiana around 1874. Jacon Hock died February 2, 1890 in Gretna, Louisiana.
