Misc. Info.

From Larry G. Shuck book, page 7-8:

Berks Co., PA. (Bern Twp) - Synder Co., (Penn Twp) to Washington Co.,Ky.
Johannes SCHUCK (1730-1804), (prob. s/o Johann Martin SCHUCH), md. (Berks Co., Bern Twp), 12 Feb 1753 Mary Margaret WAGNER (prob d/o Hans Jacob WAGNER).
Johann Martin SCHUCH and Hans Jacob WAGNER arr. Philadeplhia on 2 Sep 1749 on ship "Albany". Johannes and Margaret lived in Bern Twp., Berks County, 1752 to 1768, lived in Penn Twp (Northumberland, Synder Co). 1772 to 1795 and Washington Co Ky 1795 where Johannes died. During the Revolution he served in Michael WEAVER's Company Northumberland Co Militia. Johannes was one of four men who founded Rows [Row/Rowe/Rau] Lutheran Church in Snyder Co Melchios STOCK, Micahel [sic - s/b Michael?] WEAVER, John SCHOCK and George ULRICH warrant for 60 acres for purpose of erecting a church (Lutheran), 4 Apr 1776 land located in Northumberland Co joining land of Martin TREASTER, land late the property of Conrad WEISER, deceased and land of George RAU (ROW). There are some of the family group charts made up for John and some members of his families, therefore no addition members will be listed. The "Parker Book" by Wayne V Parker does an excellent job on most of this family. Like wise the "SHOCK FAMILY HISTORY 1730-1979" by Irene FERVERDA and Pauline WHITE (Dec 1979) covers the Adam SHOCK family in a very concise manner.

Additional Data

From "History of Susquehanna & Juniata Valley"; Published by Everts, Pech & Richards; Philadelphia, PA., 1896, Vol 2, pg. 1495:

This passage seems to conflict with two other reported facts: 1) That "all" passengers on the 1749 Albany were Wurttembergers from Erbach and 2) that ancestry of John Martin Shuck (1723-1804) has been traced back to Andreas Shuck (1672-1772) of Wurttemberg. Wurttemberg is geographically distant from Alsace-Lorraine. What apparently IS consistent is that John Martin Shuck (1723-1804) married 12 Feb 1753 at Berks County, Pennsylvania to Mary Margaret Wagner (although I have not seen a primary source for that).
