  • Notes 
    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. James Hook in his thorough analysis of this family and the early records of the Evangelical Lutheran Church totally missed this child. In fairness to James Hook, he did not have access to the will of the original Michael Stoker which also named this child.

      2. Possibly referred to in the following from the book "The Howard Leytham Stoker Von Dollen Family Histories," FHL 929.273 H833a, by Doris Lewis, 2017 So. 80th Ave., Omaha, Nebraska, 68124, p. 87: Michael Stoker, the son of (John) Michael Stoker, was a 28 year old bachelor in Wilkes County, NC when the US census was taken in 1790. The farm which Michael Stoker bought from John Dick was on the north fork of New River in Ashe County. (The boundary line had been changed from Wilkes.) In 1792 Michael married Catherine Eller, the oldest daughter of Peter Eller and Elizabeth Dick. The Ellers and Dicks were settlers in this same area and all of Michael and Catherine's children, except Eller, were born and raised among numerous family members in North Carolina. In 1815, the family joined a migration of relatives moving west into Ohio. This party of Graybills and Stokers, all ages from babies to the elderly crossed the border into Ohio on Christmas Day, 1815. Michael and his son David, who had just turned 21, took part in the first election held in Jackson County on April 1, 1816. John Michael Stoker, Michael's father, settled in Perry County, Ohio, about 60 miles north..."

      3. From the book "Our Stoker Family Histories 1731-1881," Vol. II, comp. and ed. by Elayne Stoker, 2004, printed by Stevenson's Genealogy Center, Provo, UT. From an article entitled: "Michael Stocker 1731-1819 with wives: Ana Barbara Romerin, Elisabeth Fah, and Mary (Anna Maria) Adams." See notes of Johan Michael Stocker for complete text of which the following is a small part:
      "Surviving Children
      Johanna, with her family, also moved from Frederick, Maryland to Ohio. She died in Hamilton Twp., Franklin, Ohio.
      It was around the year of 1815 that Michael, (Michael and Ana's son), moved his young family from North Carolina to Vega, Jackson County, Ohio. They settled approximately 60 miles south of his father's family. In the early 1830's Michael and his family joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, left Ohio, and moved west. He died in the Missouri.
      Jacob married Mary Swinehart.
      John married Catherine Koons.
      Both John and Jacob purchased land in Montgomery, Ohio in June of 1816 and both are found on the 1830 census for Fairfield County, Ohio as head of households.
      Maria Salome married a Mr. Reynolds.
      Maria Barbara married a Mr. Burdoon.
      Anna Margareth married Mr. Phillip Baker.
      Mary never married. She died on the 5 Sep 1839 and is buried in the Lutheran Cemetery by her father.
      Catherine married a Mr. Hidlebaugh.
      Charlotta married John Binckley."

      4. From the book "Our Stoker Family Histories 1731-1881," Vol. II, comp. and ed. by Elayne Stoker, 2004, printed by Stevenson's Genealogy Center, Provo, UT. From an article entitled: "Michael Stocker 1731-1819 with wives: Ana Barbara Romerin, Elisabeth Fah, and Mary (Anna Maria) Adams." See notes of Johan Michael Stocker for complete text of which the following is a small part:
      "Michael Stocker died on 26 March 1819 in Somerset, Perry County, Ohio. His third wife, Mary, died in the year of 1822. I do not have the location of Mary's death/burial at this point of writing. Michael's last will and testament was signed on 10 May 1818 listing the existing family: (note the Anglicized names used)
      Wife: Mary,
      Sons: Michael (Ana's son)
      John (Elizabeth's son)
      Jacob (Mary's son)
      Daughters: Mary (Marie Catherine)
      Catherine (Eva Catherine?)
      Charlotte
      Margaret (Anna Margareth?)
      Barbara (Maria Barbara)
      Salome (Maria Salome)
      Magdalene (Johanna Magdalene)
      The will of Michael Stocker was proved in special court, Court of Common Pleas, 17 April 1819, Perry County, Ohio."

      5. Mentioned in father's will dated 10 May 1818: "...my sons, Jacob, Michael and John and my daughters, Mary, Catherine, Charlotte, Margaret, Barbara, Salome and Magdalene..." See full quotation in his notes. This individual would be the "Catherine" in the will. Additionally noted as follows: "I do ordain and it is my wish that the share which shall be coming to my daughter Salome, shall be placed in the hands of my son Jacob, for the use of the children of said Salome, with power to give unto the said Salome in case of her coming to absolute want such part thereof as he shall think proper and the share of my daughter Catherine shall likewise be placed in the hands of my son Jacob to be by him said out in land in the name of her child or Children, but to be occupied by her, during her life, and by her husband, if he shall survive her as long as he continues a widower, and share of my daughter Magdalene, shall be equally divided among her children."

      6. FHL book 929.273 P684pn: "Graybill/Stoker/Eller/Smith/Koons/Pitt Connections," by Norman E. 'Gene' Pitt, 1996, pp. 82-83: "Eva Catherina Stoker, b. 31 Jan 1784, Frederick Co., MD."

      7. From the book "Our Stoker Family Histories 1731-1881," Vol. II, comp. and ed. by Elayne Stoker, 2004, printed by Stevenson's Genealogy Center, Provo, UT. From an article entitled: "Michael Stocker 1731-1819 with wives: Ana Barbara Romerin, Elisabeth Fah, and Mary (Anna Maria) Adams." See notes of Johan Michael Stocker for complete text of which the following is a small part:
      "The 1790 census record for Frederick Maryland lists for Michael Stocker:
      2 white free males over age 16
      Michael and his son Michael- age 28 (Ana's son)
      2 white males under age 16
      Johannes- age 12 (Elizabeth's son)
      Jacob- age 5 (Mary's son)
      It is this authors belief that by 1790 there should have been three boys listed on the census record. It is possible that Georg was not alive in 1790. There are no church records for Georg in Frederick except for that of his birth and baptism. In the original hand written record a cross mark has been put next to all deceased Stocker Children. Georg's record also has this mark next to it that he was deceased at the time the record was made. Georg is also missing from the will of his father Michael Stocker.
      Next on the census record is the listing of seven white, free, females but they are not separated by ages. These individuals should be:
      Wife- Mary (Anna Maria)
      Maria Barbara- age 16 (Elizabeth's daughter)
      Marie Salome- age 17 (Elizabeth's daughter)
      Anna Margareth- age 11 (Mary's daughter)
      Marie Catherine (Mary)- age 10 (Mary's daughter)
      Eva Catherina- age 6 (Mary's daughter)
      Charlotta- age 2 (Mary's daughter)
      Johanna Magdalena is not listed on the census with this family as she married (Yost) Jost Stimmel in 1784."

See notes of Johan Michael Stocker for complete text of which the following is a small part:
      "The Third Family
      The Evangelical Lutheran Church record lists a marriage on 21 June 1778 for:
      "Michael Stocker and Mary Adams by License. Witnesses: Abraham Fah and wife Juliana, Adam and Peter Schnock." (Abraham Fah was a brother to Elisabeth.) This is also recorded in the Marriage and Burial in the Monocacy Church 1743-1811 in Frederick City Historical Offices.
      In the collaborated retranslation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church Records by Hinke and Reinecke, all entries for Mary Adams are listed as Anna Maria Adams.
      The next record of Michael is a land record, dated 19 November 1778, in which Michael and Mary sold part of her dower land (Deed Book RP1 p.519).

      9. FHL book 929.273 "Some Descendants of Michael Stoker 1731-1819," compiled by Kathleen Stoker Overton (ca. 2003?), p. 62. This book does a good job of tracing several non-Mormon descendancy lines from the original immigrant.
      "Maria Catherina Stoker (Mary)
      Mary was born 4 September 1780 in Frederick, Maryland to Michael Stoker and his third wife, Anna Maria Adams. Her birth was recorded in records of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. She moved to Perry County, Ohio with her parents when a young woman. She did not marry and her Father made sure he left property and money in his will to care for her and she lived the remainder of her life in Reading Township.
      Mary wrote a will on 7 August 1839 and made John M Davis the executor. She left property and money to Allen O Binckley, Philander Binckley, George M Binckley and John Milton Binckley who are all children of her full sister Charlotte. She left one hundred dollars to George Hildebaugh the son of her sister Catherine. She willed and bequeathed four hundred dollars to her full brother Jacob Stoker and the balance of her estate real and personal to go to her sister Charlotte Binckley.
      Mary died on the 5 September 1839 and is buried in the Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery on Gay Street in Somerset, Perry County. Her tombstone says she was 48 years old at the time of her death. This does not match up with her birth date in Frederick County, Maryland. It is about 10 years off as it also is with her sister Charlotte.

      "Eva Catharina Stoker
      "Eva Catharina Stoker was born 30 May 1784 in Frederick, Frederick County, Maryland to Michael Stoker and Anna Maria (Mary) Adams. Her Father registered her birth in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick but several years after the fact. She grew up with loving parents. When she was about 21 years old, a large family group moved to Somerset, Perry County, Ohio where they established a nice farm. She was probably known as Kitty and married Peter Hildebaugh on 25 September 1806 in Fairfield County. Peter probably died young as he left few records. They had one son who is:
      1- George Hildebaugh born about 1807 in Perry County, Ohio. His Aunt, Mary Stoker left him $100.00 in her will dated 1839.
      On 15 April 1830 Catharina married Samuel Crosky in Perry County, Ohio. He had three young children who she helped raise. They show on the 1850 and 1860 Census in Perry County but are no longer there after that. The children of Samuel Crosky are:
      1- Jane Crosky born 1822 in Perry County, Ohio.
      2- Robert Crosky born 1823 in Perry County, Ohio.
      3- John Crosky born 1825 in Perry County, Ohio. He married Susanna Bathesar on 8 January 1852 in Perry County, Ohio.
      Their death dates are unknown.
