Mock Family

First Generation

Johannes Mock, the immigrant, and brother to Alexander Mock and Peter Mock, was born in Germany ca. 1712 and came to America in 1752. On September 23, 1752, John, his wife and 4 children, his brother Alexander and possibly his wife, and their ten year old brother Peter Mock, qualified at Bedford County, PA, having came from Rotterdam, Germany aboard the ship Andrew.

The name of John Mock's first wife is unknown. He was second married to Juditha Weber Rippel, widow of Christian Rippel. Juditha was the daughter of Melchior Weber (born 1659 in Heimsheim - d. 1735 and Anna Maria born 1672 - d. 1717). John Mock died September 14, 1784 and was buried in Reading, PA. Juditha was born July 4, 1713 and died in Reading PA, March 29, 1792, and is also buried in Reading.

Does anyone have a date for the marriage to Juditha, or a death date for Christian Rippel? Her will names her seven children with Christian Rippel, but we would like to establish how many of the Mock children are hers, if any.

Alexander Mock was an early settler in the Rowan County area, and was the father of at least one son, Devault or Devaulter Mock. The name of Alexander Mock's wife is unknown.

Peter Mock (ca. 1742-1817), a shoemaker, and his wife Barbara Martin figure in several land transactions in Rowan and Iredell County NC in the 1786-1796 period.

Second Generation

Children of John Mock
George Mock m. to unknown
Theobald Mock
Philip Mock (b. 1752 PA?) m. 1) Anna Maria Clinard (abt. 1753 -1780), d/o Johann Philip Clinard;
2) Maria Magdalena (?); 3) Johanna (Hannah) Walk (1772-1852); d/o Martin Walk & Elisabeth Fiscus)
Godleip (Gottlieb?) Mock
Jacob Mock (1753-1836) m. Julianna Kappus (1767-1835), d/o Peter and Marie Kappus


Children of Alexander Mock and his unknown wife

Andrew Mock age 60 is living with wife Mildred in Forsyth County in 1850, suggesing birth about 1790. Is he the son of Peter and Barbara, or a grandson? Likewise, Lewis Mock born 1799 seems marginally too young to be theirs, if the other children were really born in the 1760s and 1770s. Is he a grandson instead?

Christian S. Mock is profiled in Christopher Watford's The Civil War Roster of Davidson County, but his parents are given there as Peter and Phoebe Mock. However, census records show Nathaniel Mock with a child Christian S. age 9 in 1850 and 19 in 1860, which would fit the dates for Christian Sylvanus, whereas Peter and Phoebe do not have a child named Christian in the 1850 census. We believe therefore that the Watford book is probably in error here.

Who is.... Sarah Mock found in the Bastardy Bonds, Rowan County, North Carolina, Nov. 7, 1809, Bondsmen: Charles Hayes, Jacob Graves and And. Hunt??
