Family History

Coat of Arms

This Mock line descended from Johannes Valentine Mock and Anna Judith Veizhans who left Germany in 1766. They settled near Albany, New York where they operated a small farm. Johannes was a United Empire Loyalist and was loyal to the King of England. Sometime during the American War of Independance he moved his family across the border into Canada. They settled at St. Armand, Quebec, approximately 2 miles east of Missisquoi Bay on Lake Champlain and about a mile and one-half north of the present border of Vermont.

Joseph Mock Jr. moved to the Port Kent, New York area in the early to mid 1800's. Joseph Mock Jr. and his sons Andrew J. Mock, John Leroy Mock and Joseph V. Mock (my great grandfather) are buried in the Port Kent cemetery. Several of the Mock's operated freight schooners on Lake Champlain during the late 1800's. Other's from the Mock Line moved into Vermont.

About 1998 I became interested in my ancestry. I searched the internet and connected with three of my cousins that I didn't know I had ( Bernard Young in Vermont, Arthur Mock in California and Dorothy Carpenter (Mother was Leda Marion Mock) whose husband Giles sent me all the information beyond Johannes Valentine Mock ). They supplied me with most of the information beyond my immediate family.

I am now collecting pictures and data from family members so we can take a pleasant stroll down memory lane.
