I am related to Susannah Hoke, daughter of Johann Jacob Hoke. She married William Shrader (Schraeder, Schroeder)
Do you have anything else on Susannah or William Shrader?
I understand that William came from the old country on a ship with the rest of his family when he was about 7 years old and he was the only one of his family that survived the trip, and was made an indentured servant of Johann Hoke. Do you have any thing on this?

Thank you for anything you can help me with.

When I posted the original message, I made a mistake on child 12. CONRAD HOKE, who was born in PA, not York Co., NY. Sorry about that.

I have discovered there is a connection between the Susannah Hoke that I have, and the one you seek. Let me know if you want my information. Thanks. Thomas

I am interested in the descendants of Samuel Hoke also. I was wondering if you could send me a copy of what you have on him. My mail address is 516 Rose Drive, Belzoni, Miss., 39038, or my email is eagle@belsonicable.com. I would also be interested in Johann Jacob Hoke ancestry. Thanks. Tom

You are in error as to when my 3rd greatgrandmother, Catherine Hoke, married my 3rd greatgrandfather, George Rudy. I have a copy of the will of her brother, John, and they were married at the time he wrote it on 5 Oct 1781, as he refers to George as his brother-in-law and made him one of the executors. My research indicates that she was the mother of all of George Rudy's children, except George Rudy, Jr., whose mother was Catherine Bittenger. George, Jr. was born in 1770, his mother died at his birth. I believe Catherine and George married about 1771-73, also making her year of birth earlier than 1760. Other dates I have seen are 1748 and 1753 for her birth. The date you give for their marriage was the date of the final settlement of John Jacob Hoke's estate, after the sale of the house that Anna Margaretha lived in in York, after her death in March of 1785.

I think we are related through Casper Hoke. My husband's great-great Grandmother is Amanda Hoke Staley. She was born about 1839 in York County, PA and married Jacob Staley. She died in Adams County, PA on Jan-12-1904.

I think her father may have been Emanuel Hoke and Ellen Louise Hoke. I am usure of his parents.

Do these names sound familiar?

The marriage date for Catherine Hoke to George Rudy is incorrect. That is the date that Andreas/Andrew Hoke, the executor of his father's estate, divided up the proceeds from the sale of the house that Anna Margaretha Hoke had lived in in York. George Rudy is listed as an executor of the will of Johannes/John Hoke in October of 1781 and referred to as his brother-in-law. I believe Catherine was born about 1755. She is the mother of all the children of George Rudy, except George Jr. so the marriage probably occurred about 1773.

People need to use the data in both Hoke books with caution as there are errors in them. The authors did quite a bit of research and it's wonderful to have them as resources. They also relied on data sent by descendants, some of which was passed down as oral history and distorted over the years and they also came to some conclusions of their own, which have proven to be inaccurate. Child #16, Catherine Hoke, is my ggg grandmother. My nearly 40 years of research indicate that she was born much earlier than 1760 (I've run into dates of 1752, 1753 and 1755,also) as she was the mother of all of George Rudy's children except the first, George, Jr., whose mother was Catherine Bittenger, d/o of Nicholas, who left a will in Adams co PA in 1804. George Rudy, Jr. is the only grandchild listed among the heirs and Bittenger researchers state that Catherine only had one child by George Rudy, Jr, born in York co PA on 4 Feb 1770. The three books of York co PA early church records, mostly baptisms, that have been published, give George Rudi and wife as sponsors for Daniel, son of Johannes Hock and Sabina, on 3 April 1774. Johannes/John was one of Catherine's brothers. Daniel was born on 20 Nov 1773. Since Daniel was one of her nephews I'm sure that the wife of George Rudi/Rudy in this instance was Catherine Hoke. I do not believe she was 13 or 14 when she married George. I have more data to share on this family if anyone wishes to e-mail me directly.
