    Notes:

    "MICHEAL STOCKER AND HIS DESCENDANTS" by Charles L. Stocker and
    Jennie Stewart: " Andrew Stocker, third child and second son of the
    family of Andreas and Julianna, was born May 25, 1778, as determined
    by the inscription on his tombstone. His birthplace was Northampton
    County Pa, in what is now the Boro of Stockertown in Forks Twp. Here he
    lived until he was about 37 years of age, when he sold his farm and
    with wife and 3 or 4 children joined his four brothers and sister who
    were seeking a new home in the Ohio country. Moving by team and wagon
    over the Pa. mountains and across the Ohio, they continued to the
    valley of the Huskingum, later called the Tuscarawas. Here they
    settled within a few miles of each other, Andrew on a fine farm on the
    bank of the river about two miles west of Gnadenhutten...and here
    Andrew lived out his life." "Public records show that he carried
    with credit his part as a citizen of a pioneer community...His space
    in the old Moravian Cemetery at Gnadenhutten is near the graves of his
    brothers Adam and Christian, and is marked by a simple marble slab set
    upright, with the inscription stating that he died Dec. 6, 1852, aged
    74 years, 6 months and 12 days."

  1. 2.  Andreas Stocker was born 1746, Whitesuntide (son of Michael Stocker\Stucker and Anna Margaret); died Bef 4 Sep 1823, Stockertown, Northampton County, PA; was buried , Old Forks Cem., Stockertown, Northampton County, PA.

    Notes:

    The following information is found in "MICHAEL STOCKER AND THEIR
    DESCENDANTS" by Charles L. Stocker and Jennie Stewart: "Andreas
    Stocker, probably the fifth son of Michael, the Swiss imigrant of
    1731, and Margaret, his wife, was "born in Perk Gaunty" according to
    the inscription on the stone in the old Forks Cemetery, often called
    the Stocker Burying Ground, at Stockertown, in Northampton County, Pa.
    It is likely that this was in Upper Milford Twp., Bucks County, now in
    southwesterly corner of Lehigh County, where on Sep. 11, 1738 Michael
    Stocker received a patent for 150 acres of territorial land under the
    seal of Thomas Penn." "The tombstone says Andreas died in the
    eightieth year of his age which would fix his birth in 1743-1744, but
    an entry in his old family Bible reads: "I, Andreas Stocker, was born
    on Ascension day in the year 1746." "About 1770-71 Andreas and his
    brothers Adam and Henry moved northeasterly into the present
    Northampton County, where the records show that Andreas and Adam acquired
    in common a tract of 345 acres of land in Bethleham Twp. This Andreas
    soon thereafter quit-claimed to Adam. Thereafter he acquired a number
    of parcels in Forks Twp. and became one of the largest land holders in
    the region." "He was enterprising and constructive in the new
    community. Tradition has it that before the establishment of a
    church, services were held in Andreas' barn. He donated a location
    for the Forks church and cemetery site. I think it almost certain
    that the old stone mill powered by the waters of Bushkill Creek, whick
    is still operating to this day, was one of his contributions to his
    time." "Andreas and his four living brothers were enrolled as
    soldiers of the Revolution. Andreas' service record as a private in
    Capt. Jacob Buss' County of the 1st County in the 2nd Battilion of
    Northampton County, according to the Class roll dated May 22, 1781,
    appears in Pennsylvania Archives, 5th Series, Vol. 8, p.143; also as
    of roll made up in the fall of 1782, on p. 201 of Vol. 8, same
    Series."

    Notes:

    Quotation found in "MICHAEL STOCKER AND HIS DESCENDANTS", by Charles
    L. Stocker and Jennie Stewart is as follows: "...I discovered
    Andreas' old German Bible with entry: "I was united in holy matrimony
    with Julia Anna a born nee Watuerteen (Wats worth)." from which we may
    conclud that her name was probably Watterson, or perhaps Wadsworth"
