Johann Friedrich Hake
Birth: Oct. 13, 1701
Hessen, Germany
Death: 1770
York County
Pennsylvania, USA

Johann Friedrich and Anna Catharine (Fortbach) Höck's (later spelled Hake) family arrived in America on two ships in 1748 and 1749. The two oldest children Jacob and Anna Catharina came first arriving in Philadelphia on September 15, 1748 aboard the ship "Two Brothers." Almost exactly a year later, on September 26, 1749, they were joined by their parents and younger siblings Anna Philippina and Johann Conrad who arrived aboard the ship "Ranier."

Unless traveling alone, women's names were not included ships' lists but other records confirm their presence. An example is a list of communicants for the Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania for Apr 14, 1750 which includes:

Johann Friedrich Höck, the father
Catharina Hoekin, the mother
Philippina Hoeckin, the daughter
Johann Conrad Höck, the son
Valentin Hamen
Anna Catharina Hamen, the older daughter

Jacob and his sister Anna Catharina had already married by the time the rest of the family arrived. This brother and sister married another pair of siblings: Susanna Dorothea and Johann Valentine Hamme.

Johann Friedrich died sometime before Sep 9, 1770 when letters of administration were granted to his son Jacob Hake for the "estate of Frederick Hake, late of York County, yeoman, deceased." The location of his grave has not been determined.
