Obituary of Margaret Mock
15 January 1903
"The Fulton Democrat"
Mrs. Margaret Mock, probably the oldest resident of this place, died at her home on Water Street shortly before 10 o'clock Tuesday night after an illness of ten days from la grippe. Had she lived until March she would have attained the ripe old age of 88 years, having been born March 15, 1815.
Her maiden name was Bell and she was twice married. The first union was with David Skelly and three sons and a daughter were born to them. These children are all dead. Her second marriage was to Daniel Mock, and three children were born to them as follows: George W., of Metal, Franklin County, Daniel B., of Todd Township, and James E. of Morrison's Cove.
She had been a member of the Methodist Church for nearly three score years. The funeral arrangements had not been made at the hour of going to press.
1.5 - Peter Mock, apparently a brother to Rinehart, also owned land in Washington Co., MD in 1793. In 1798, Rinehart is taxed in Bedford Co. as #55 with a one-story log house and Peter Mock is #56 with a two story log house. Peter is still a landholder in Chester Co through 1820. Does he have land in two places and are they the same Peter?? In 1800, Peter Mock and Rinehart assess in Air/Ayr twp, Be dford Co., PA

1113.1 - Daniel Earl Mock Obituary
The following was on the Mock Mailing List 11-15-02
from Annie Whitman/Steve Patz, Blair County Coordinators.
Daniel Earl Mock - Morrison Cove Herald, PA 1907
The following taken from the Curryville correspondence in the Altoona Tribune is published by request.
"Just as the curtains of night were drawn at the early dawning of day on Monday morning, June 17, the spirit of Daniel Earl, youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. James E. Mock, took its flight to the "home beyond: at the age of 16 years, 11 months and 28 days.
"Two weeks previous he did his last work and came home sick before the labors of the day were quite finished. Soon his illness developed into peritonitis and, while everything was done that medical skill and good nursing could accomplish, yet the hand of the stern destroyed could not be stayed and he passsed away after a fortnight of intense suffering. The deceased was a youth of exemplary habits, Sunday school and church services; kind and strictly obedient to his parents and general respected and loved by all, as far as he was known, and his early demise has cast a gloom over the entire community.
"On Wednesday morning solemn and appropriate services were held over his remains in the Curryville Church of the Brethern by Ministers F. R. Zook, Geo. S. Myers and L. B. Hoover, in the presence of an audience that filled the house to overflowing. The interment followed in the Eablemans cemetery, with six of his boy companions and schoolmates acting as pallbearers. Besides his parents he is survived by two brothers and two sisters. These are J.R. Mock, who lives on the farm, and Harry, Alice and Mary, at home."
From Steve Lapp, written 17 Jul 1997 to Gene Andert regarding Jacob Mock who married Catherine Poley - Several years ago I found records for this family in SLC, in a 1946 book called "History of Zion's or Old Organ Church, with a Record of Baptisms and Biographical Sketches of Former Pastors, Founded by Muhlenberg in 1743" , by Rev. Charles F. Dapp, Pastor of Zion's Church in Spring City, PA . In brief, the records reveal a John Mack/Mock married to Anna Margaretha. Son Reinhart b. 13 Apr 1761; Son Isaac b. 18 Jul 1770 and from a later will I located for John, dau. Rosina, dau. Elizabeth, son Peter. "Mary" was wife's name in will.
Reinhart Mock and Peter Mock may be the same named who lived in Maryland in 1790, and Peter may be the one who moved to Bedford Co, PS @1804-1810. But this is much speculation on my part.
The Jacob Mock b. 1793 and married in 1813 Chester Co, PA to Catherine Poley may descend from an old Chester Co family in St. Vincent Twp. I have census indexes for Chester Co. Macks & Mocks and there were several Jacob Mocks in St. Vincent Twp prior to 1850.
Family appears in West Vincent Twp. census spelled MOCK
Frederick Mack appears on 1756 Letter to the Assembly from St. Vincent Twp., Pike Land, Chester Co. announcing the formation of a local militia

From Jan Tompkins
From "A Twentieth century history and biographical record of Crawford County, Kansas," (1905, Lewis Pub. Co., Chicago, 665 pp.) on pages 494-495: "WILLIAM MOCK"
"William Mock, engaged in the hay, coal, transfer and delivery business at Cherokee, is one of the early settlers of Crawford county, having come here in 1866, shortly after the war, in which he had given due meed [sic] of faithful service and shown his patriotism to the fullest extent. He is well known and esteemed in the business circles of the town and has accomplished a great deal in the years of his active career.
"Born in Perry county, Pennsylvania, July 28, 1838, he spent the first nineteen years of his life in that state, where he received his educational advantages and was taught to work and to prize industry and faithful
diligence. In 1857 he moved west to the state of Illinois and at Aledo, Mercer County of that state, on August 6, 1862, he enlisted in the 9th Illinois Infantry in Capt. Alexander G Hawe's company. They were at camp at Cairo, Illinois, and they crossed to Paducah, Kentucky. They took part in the seige and capture of Fort Donnelson, were at Shiloh under General Richard Oglesby, and at that battle Mr Mock was wounded in both thighs, after which he was confined to the hospital for three months; was at the Battle of Corinth and sometime became a part of Sherman's army in the Atlanta campaign, participating at Chickamauga, Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain, Big Shanty, Burnt Hickory, and other engagements. For a time he acted as guard at the headquarters of General Dodge. On receiving his honorable discharge he returned home to Illinois.
"Mr Mock was a son of Samuel and Mary Ann (Brower) Mock, both natives of Pennsylvania, and of German stock. They moved out to Illinois in 1859 and in 1866 came to Crawford County, where the father, who was a Democrat in politics, died at the age of 84, and the mother died at Fort Scott, aged 64. They were adherents of the Presbyterian church. Samuel Mock had eight children, and three other of the sons were soldiers in the Civil War, named: Abe, of the 9th Illinois; Jesse, also of the 9th, who died of wounds received at Shiloh; and John, of the 5th Pennsylvania Cavalry.
"Mr Mock, as has been mentioned, came to Crawford County in 1866, and has since taken a prominent part in the various affairs of the county. His business at Cherokee is a prosperous one, and it continues to increase under his efficient and capable management. Mr Mock is a Socialist in the political trend of his thought. He affiliates with Shiloh Post of theGrand Army.
"He was married at Girard, in 1874, to Miss Mary E Blurton, and they have spent a most happy married life of 30 years. She was a daughter of WIlliam and Lucy (Pool) Blurton, both natives of Pennsylvania, the former of whom, a farmer and a Democrat, died in Missouri at the age of 84, and the latter is living in Cherokee at the age of 80. Mr and Mrs Mock have the following children: Jesse, William, Ed, Mattie, Minnie, Florence, and Samuel, who was killed in an accident at the age of seven."
