[NI180470] Lived in Reynoldsdale, Bedford Co. area most of his life. Farmed until age 93. An article in Bedford Inquirer Feb 9 1951 abt him states: Although he no longer goes down stairs in home of his son John, where he has resid in recent yrs, he gets up daily & dresses. He spend many hrs ea day sitting by the window of his room, looking out at the tiny community that has been his home for so many yrs & across the rd to where his farmhouse used to be. It burned in 1944. Unlike many oldsters, the near centenarian has no special formula for longevity. His son, John, however, may have brought him to his ripe old age. He says his father always has been a man of few words, soft spoken when he said them. Like many other farmers, he worked hard all his life, but dawn-to-dusk labors were his only excess. His Doctor said in commenting on his 100th b-day that he used tobacco all his life, but never had much to do with liquor, & was smart enough not to overdo work when he got to the age where work kills a man.

Stuver attended common schools of his native Twp until received a good business education, & learned the trade of carpenter, which he followed for 5 yrs. At the end of that he sought a line of business in which was a wider field for the exercise of energy & push, & more general contact with the public. He selected butchering & dairy business, wisdom of which choice been fully demonstrated in exceptional success attending his operations. He opened his meat market in Coopersdale & laid out his milk rtes with such good judgment that success & profit were results. On May 20 1896, his firm, consisting of himself, his bro William & Fyock opened their present large grocery dept, in which a heavy stock of the best & most marketable goods are carried. The bldg of extensive business of the firm in its different lines is largely due to Mr. Stuver, whose excellent judgment & push gave impetus to their enterprise that made it popular & profitable.

To Mr. & Mrs. Stuver have been born five sons & four daughters: Irwin E., John Eli, died in infancy; Anna May, Benjamin W., Harry L., Ira Logan, Mary K., Essie Priscilla & E. Rosamond. Mr. Stuver's reading & study of religious matters has led him to connect himself with Progressive Breth ch, in which he is active & useful. He is a republican in politics, has held Twp offices, but gives his time chiefly to his varied business affairs. Mr. Stuver in these dys of keen competition has won because he possesses that rare power of concentration so necessary to achievement, & energy so potent for power. Desirous of success he has never lost his energy or enthusiasm, & by his wise decision has always made the best of his opportunities.

[NI182339] According to Evelyn D. Gibson's "Blackburn & Allied Descendants" : As a child, John Blackburn went with his parents to Westmoreland Co, by or before 1773 & was received at Westland Mtg on certificate of his parents. He was disowned by that meeting 8-11-1787, after he had m out of unity. In 1790, John & wife, Mary, were listed in Westmoreland Co census with 1 son under age 16. John initiated a petition 3-10-1794, to settle estate of his deceased father, Joseph Blackburn. When the estate could not be satisfactorily divided, John arranged to purchase the land & to pay the appraised value of 533 pounds & 4 shillings for the entire 350 acs & 51 perches in North Huntington Twp. Payment was to be made "in manner & portion as required by law to his mother (Deborah) & to the chdn of his father" in 1 yr, together with interest from the date of sale. The deed for purchase was signed 6-10-1794 by John Blackburn of North Huntington Twp, & by Thomas Blackburn of same place, as surety. A yr later, in 1795, John d intestate leaving his young widow, Mary, & 4 sm chdn. One account of John's death was that he was "accidentally killed in mistake for a deer" but no verification could be found. Letters of administration in the estate of John Blackburn, deceased, were granted to his widow Mary, & James McGrew. Because the estate still contained a portion belonging to Joseph Blackburn's heirs, the admins petitioned court on 12-15-1795 & received permission to sell 200 acs of estate to insure the support of minor chdn of John, dec'd. The widow, Mary d 1796 & letters of admin in her estate were granted 5-3-1796, to James McGrew. The following mo court appointed Simon McGrew & James McGrew as guardians of Joseph, Simon, Martha & Elizabeth, minor chdn of John Blackburn, deceased, "until they become 14 yrs of age." On 6-13-1796, Thomas Blackburn purchased 200 acs of his deceased bro's estate for 350 pounds. James McGrew withdrew from his guardianship 6-10-1800 & on 9-2-1801 Deborah Blackburn, mother of John, deceased, petitioned the court for another guardian to assist Simon McGrew in guardianship of her minor gchdn. The court appointed Elijah Newlin, N Huntington Twp as other guardian. By petition 6-21-1802, Joseph, s/o John Blackburn late of N Huntington Twp, then above 14 yrs of age, chose Simon McGrew as his guardian until 21 yrs of age. By similar petition Sep 1805, Simon, s/o John, chose Simon McGrew as his guardian until 21 yrs of age. By petition Dec 1809, Elizabeth d/o John, also chose Simon McGrew as her guardian until 21 yrs of age. The names of guardians together with names of chdn involved, suggests the likely probability that their mother was Mary McGrew, & that she was probably d/o Simon & Martha (McKnight) McGrew, & guardian chosen by all3 chdn was their gfather, Simon McGrew. Simon McGrew d 1812, & there was no mention of dau Mary, in his will, but Mary d 11 yrs before Simon McGrew wrote his will, & he would have been aware that her chdn had been provided for by her deceased husb's estate. Further evidence of McGrew relationship is evidenced in Orphans' Court records in 1832, naming James B. McGrew as guardian of 2 of chdn of Simon Blackburn (#184), after death of Simon's wife in 1831.

[NI183432] Samuel was presumably named after his father's bro who moved to OH along with others of the family. His age is from the census of his father's household in 1850. He was named as beneficiary, & required to support his mother Mary, in his father's will, described above. Fred Ickes writes that Samuel Mock, executor named in Christian Mock's will, had m Ruthanna Wright & had d in 1857. He then quotes an unidentified Orphan's Court record: "Samuel Mock, s/o Christian Mock, left only chd Annie Mock, who had a dau Elva Louise Mock". ['Mock Family Historian', v. VI, no. 2, pg 19, Spring 1997]. He cites another unidentified court record to effect that Thomas Oldham was appointed guardian 28 May 1879 for Elva Louise Mock, minor chd of Annie Mock, deceased. Finally, he reports that Oldham was replaced as guardian 15 Sep 1879 by J.A. Mock, Clayton Co, IA, where Elva lived. I'm accepting that "Samuel Mock, s/o Christian" is this Samuel, since no other Christian has been identified in the area. However, Thomas Oldham was husb of Barbara, d/o Joseph Mock & gd/o Peter Mock, Jr, Bedford Co [Dittig, Hinton, Houck]. If records were correctly reported by Ickes, this is an indirect connection between our Peter Mock lineage & that of Peter Mock, Sr., Bedford Co, reported to have come to from MD.
A Samuel Mock m Hannah Stombach 13 Sep 1849, both Union Twp, by Rev. Ziegler. In 1850 a Samuel Mock, 23, & his wife Hannah, 21 were censused in Union Twp.

The chdn of Christian & Mary Mock are now well documented in Mock Bible in possession of Dr. Harold David Mock, & brought to my attention by his sis Evelyn (Mock) Hirtle George. Printed in N�rnberg in 1765, the Bible inscriptions on 3 of the flyleaves include b-dates of 16 Mocks & of 3 Leppos [George & Swan, 1998; to be published]. One pg in Bible has following 6 inscriptions. The 3rd, 4th & 5th are in one hand, the other 3 were written by other individuals: BIBLE
In the year of our lord 1817 Margaret Mock was b the 1st Day of May
In the year of our lord 1819 Reuben Mock was b Feb 21st
February the 6th 1821 Priscilla Mock was b Mar 28th 1824
Manuel Mock was b Nov 19 1826
Magdalena Mock was b 1828
Samuel Mock was B 19 Sep
Margaret's b-date is independently available from our family records, which confirms that this is d/o Christian & Mary. Samuel, b 1828, is named as son in Christian's will signed 14 May 1855, & censused as 22 yrs of age in Christian's home in 1850. These kwn relationships make it quite certain that this pg consists of a listing of chdn of Christian Mock (1782-1855) of MD & Bedford Co,
However, the list is incomplete. The 1820 census for Christian listed a male b 1805-1810 who does not appear in Bible. If this was a son, no further trace of him has been found. Also, Christian's 1855 will mentioned a dau Matilda who at that time was m with chdn. Although Christian bequeathed his estate equally among all of his chdn, he mentioned by name only Matilda (whose portion he reserved for her chdn) & Samuel. Census records for the chdn of Christian Mock can be compared with the information above: 1820 CENSUS 1830 CENSUS
(missing) son 1804-1810
Matilda (missing) dtr 1810-1820 dtr 1815-1820
Margaret 1 May 1817 dtr 1810-1820 dtr 1815-1820
Reuben 21 Feb 1819 son 1810-1820 dtr 1815-1820
Priscilla 6 Feb 1821
Manuel 28 Mar 1824
Magdalena 19 Nov 1826 dtr 1825-1830
Samuel 19 Sep 1828 son 1825-1830
From this chart, it appears likely (although not certain) that the 1st son, as well as Priscilla & Manuel, d by 1830. The assumption that Matilda is 1st of 3 chdn b 1815-1820 is dictated by placement of Margaret & Reuben's b-dates within that period, so that 1815 seems the most likely estimate for Matilda's b-yr. This fits with the fact that in Christian's 1855 will, he referred to "all of those chdn" when mentioning Matilda's progeny. Her b 1815 would allow her to have had several chdn by 1855.
