    • From the work of other researchers:

      (Not verified or checked)

      George first appears in Frederick Co., VA 08 Sep 1775 when he purchased 307 1/2 acres of land on Cedar Creek from William Vance (@6).

      George is shown as an assignee for John Ragley in the purchase of 3 acres of land one mile from Cedar Creek 14 Aug 1779 (@7). In this transaction George's last name is spelled Mauk and indicates the property was adjacent George's.

      In a Frederick Co., VA deed recorded 13 Sep 1779 George leased 115 acres (@8). In another deed 01 Oct 1779 George purchased this 115 acres and an additional 100 acres (@9). George and Sophia leased this land 01 Dec 1779 (@10) and sold the
      land 02 Dec 1779 (@11).

      George appears in the records of the St. Paul Lutheran's Church in Strasburg, VA starting in 1782, when he is listed as having paid money to the church.George's children and several grandchildren also appear in these church records, into the
      early 1800's. Of interest is several of the children of Peter Mauck Sr. of Tom's Brook, Frederick Co., VA appear in these same church records during this time period.

      George was granted power of attorney 22 Apr 1784 for George Volk for the administration of Volk's property (@12). One of the witnesses was Alexander Hite.

      George purchased an additional 10 acres on Cedar Creek adjacent his land 09 Mar 1790 (@13). In this deed George's last name was spelled Moke.

      George appears in the personal property tax lists of Frederick Co. VA from their inception in 1782, yearly thru 1807. This, with the below Will dates, would indicate he died between 1807 and the time the Will was proved in 1808. George also
      appears yearly in the property tax lists of Frederick Co., VA from 1782 through the time of his death.

      George's Will in Frederick Co., VA was dated 13 Sep 1803 and proved 04 Oct 1808 (@14). His will identifies his children as Daniel, Christopher, Catherina the wife of Jeremiah Eberly, Christina the wife of Jacob Harman, George and Susannah. In
      his Will George states that his son George married a woman contrary to his wishes and was otherwise disobedient, then leaves George Jr. only $1. George Sr. also mentioned owning land in both Frederick and Shenandoah Counties.

      George's personal property was appraised in Sept. 1808 (@15) and his estate sale was 28 Oct 1808 (@16). One of the buyers at George's estate sale was a Michael Mauck. This is very likely Michael Mauck, son of Frederick and Motlena Mauck, who
      owned property near Middletown, where George and Sophia lived. It would appear these two families of Mock/Mauck's knew of each other. It is possible they were related but the connection is not known or proven. Sophia also appears as a buyer
      at this sale.

      On 26 Dec 1818 Abraham Nisewander, executor of the Will of Christopher Mock, and Rosina Mock, sold Christopher's land on plot #11 in Middletown (@17). This deed states that Christopher had wanted this land rented until the death of his mother,
      after which it should be sold and the proceeds divided between his brothers and sisters. Sophia appears in the property tax lists of Frederick Co., VA residing adjacent Abraham Nisewinder and Isaac Hite (lived at Belle Meade) yearly from 1812
      through 1821.

      The above Michael Mauck appears in these property tax lists adjacent George from 1806 until George's death, then adjacent Sophia through 1821. The tax lists are in order of visit alphabetical by the first initial of the last name, meaning the
      tax list cannot be used so show they lived adjacent each other. However, in the 1822 tax list Michael Mauck was charged 1800 dollars extra for buildings that had belonged to Sophia Mock. These tax lists show Michael owning 330 acres near
      Middletown.

      Of interest is that this family's last name is often spelled Muck or Muk. George's son Daniel appears in the 1810 census Frederick Co., VA as Muck and his descendants adopted this spelling in Fairfield Co., OH from 1820 onward. George's son
      George appears as George Muk in the 1810 census of Montgomery Co., VA and his descendants in Harrison Co., IN adopted this spelling from 1840 on. Perhaps it was because of the way it was pronounced.
