VOLUME VI NO. 1 ‑ WINTER 1997 MOCK FAMILY HISTORIAN 5
FREDERICK MOCK/MAUCK OF SHENANDOAH VALLEY, VIRGINIA
Submitted by Lila Wylie
BIRTH: About 1750, Shenandoah Valley, VA., son of Peter Mauck of Tom's Brook and his wife Juliana Rinehart. Date of birth estimated from census readings. Frederick is named in his father's will, dated 1 Mar 1771, Shenandoah Co., VA., along with his brothers, John, Andrew and Henry.
MARRIAGE: About 1775 to Margaret, last name unknown. Margaret's name is on a deed selling land Frederick inherited from his father, Peter, Shenandoah Co., VA, 27 May 1779, Deed Book C. p. 354.
DEATH: Place and date not known, but was probably in Scioto County, Ohio sometime after the 1830 census where he is listed between 80 and 90 years of age. He does not appear on the 1840 census. He is probably buried in Rideout cemetery, Scioto Co., OH with his daughter Catherine and her husband John Hoppis. There were a number of unreadable partial tombstones when they did the readings.
Frederick and Margaret moved to North Carolina after selling their property in Shenandoah County in 1779 and lived there 10 to 15 years. He may have been in Rowan Co., N.C. as a Frederick Mock is in the Court Minutes in 1789; p. 216, Martin Poler vs Fredk Mock and p. 249, Fredk Miller to Brushy‑Fork Society, 11 acres proved by Fredk Mock. There were several Mocks in the 1790 Rowan Co., census‑‑Andrew, Henry, Jacob, John, Peter Jr., Peter Sr., and Philip. No doubt they were related to Frederick Mock. Frederick was in the Wilkes Co., N.C. 1790 census but he would not stay there for long. In 1795 Hugh Jones entered 100 acres in Wilkes County which included the improvement Frederick Mock "lived in" 1794. (Wakes Co., N.C. Land Entries 17831795). So now we have two pieces of property that Frederick Mock "improved" and abandoned within a few years. At the least he would have cleared some land and built a cabin. Steve Lapp suggests that he did not have dear title to the land.
The family next appears on the tax lists for Wythe County, VA., from 1795‑1805 and on the 1810 census for Giles Co., VA. It is possible they did not move but only the borders changed. Wythe Co. was formed in 1789 from Montgomery Co. Giles Co. was formed in 1806 from Montgomery, Monroe, Tazwell and Wythe Counties. Daughter Catherine married 10 Oct 1797, Wythe County, to John Hoppis who is listed close to Frederick Mock on the 1796 tax list. There is evidence of son Samuel in Giles County, Deed Book, 1810, item 82, when he sold 180 acres. The 1810 census, Giles Co. lists Frederick Mock, p. 390, with two males 10‑26 (Samuel), one male 45+, one female 10‑16, one female 45+. Son Peter is in his own household, p. 391, one male 26‑45 and one female 26‑45 which suggests this is his first wife. No children listed.
About 1819 Frederick joined the hordes pressing westward and moved to Ohio along with daughter Catherine, her husband John Hoppis and their children and son Samuel, his wife and his two small sons. Peter dropped off in Scott Co., VA. Margaret may have already died as she does not show up on the 1820 census. Tragedy struck soon after their arrival when Samuel died. He left a will dated 5 Aug 1819, Scioto Co., OH, Will 21, Bk. A, p. 61, giving his wife Caty one third of his property and the rest of his property to his two sons, Joseph Moak and Peter Moak. He desired his wife to put his sons to a trade within eleven years. The will was witnessed by Frederick Moak, William Hoppis and Hannah Hoppis (both children of Catherine Moak and John Hoppis). On 8 Dec 1819, John Hoppis was given guardianship of Peter and Joseph Moak, under the age of 14 years. There is a marriage record in Scioto Co. 10 feb 1820 for Katherine Mock to John Hatterman. This may have been the widow of Samuel.
No property records were found for Frederick Moak in Scioto County. His is listed in the 1820 census with one male child 0‑10, near daughter Catherine and John Hoppis. In the 1830 census he is alone and near grandson, John Snook. Now, who is this male child under the age of 10 in his household in 18201 It may have been Joseph, his grandson. Just because John Hopppis was granted guardianship of the sons of Samuel doesnt mean they were living with him even though the 1820 census suggests they were as he's listed with 3 males under 10. Catherine and John had only one documented son, b. 1815, that would fit this category. Frederick Moak was a tough old man to be caring for a small child when he was at least 70 years of age and living by himself when he was at least 80 years old, independent and self‑sufficient.
Joseph and Peter Moak, sons of Samuel, are not visible on the 1830 census for Scioto Co. This suggests they had been apprenticed to a trade as requested by their father. They are both on the 1850 census, Carter Co., KY, as well as their Uncle Peter. Peter C. Mauk, p. 237, 2nd district; b. Virginia, blacksmith, age 30; Joseph Mauk, p. 159, 1st district~ b. VA, age 34; Peter Mauk, p. 255, 1st district, b. N.C., age 69.
