  • 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."
