Entries unverified. Check everything before you use it. Entries without sources probably came from other RootsWeb trees. There are undoubtedly mistakes in entry and in fact. Individuals born before 1930 without a date or place of death may still be living, even though there is an entry showing "Death: Y" I would appreciate any corrections.

    Jacob Schock, the founder of the Lancaster County family bearing his surname, was from Hessen, Germany, and emigrated to this country about 1730. He made his first purchase of land from the Government in 1739. This tract of land was situated in Manor Township, Lancaster County, PA, near Creswell, on land now owned and occupied by his great, great grandsons, Isaiah and John Schock. It was included in what is now known as Turkey Hill, and as he gradually added to his possessions, at the time of his death he owned a large tract. It comprised 185 acres of woodland, from which through untiring industry, he wrought out a comfortable home, although it was a rude house of hewed locust logs. Upon his arrival in this country he was a poor man, but being industrious he succeeded.
    Jacob and Esther Grove Schock died in the faith of the Dunkard Church leaving a name of which their descendants may be justly proud.
