Matthias Michael Schoch
Birth: Dec. 16, 1738, Switzerland
Death: May 10, 1812
Snyder County
Pennsylvania, USA

I was informed that Mathias came over with Conrad Weiser as he was an indentured servant to Conrad Weiser. He had to work for Conrad Weiser a few yrs to pay for his trip here to the USA. Some of The Schoch family later changed name to Stock then Stuck.The birth place is Mulhassen,Alasacer-Loraine,Switzerland. His death recorded as Northumberland county Pa, BUT,,,,,, The Snyder County is what the area is named now, it use to be part of Northumberland co, but was divided into smaller areas and now is called Snyder Co.I also live in Snyder Co, about 5 miles from wear he died & 3 miles from where he is buried.The family that migrated to Ohio & Nebraska Spelled their name as Schoch, Schock, & Shock...My grandfather Stuck told me they changed the spelling when people pronounced it wrongly so they spelled it as people pronounced it.That was his gt gt grandfather Conrad Stock to next generation Stuck.Plus the religion of old Mennonite to Lutheran, less dressed like the old country Switzerland, but still wore some old type cloths.And the language my grand parents was "Pa.Dutch" English was a 2nd language.At least I mean they all spoke Dutch at home with the family & neighbors, just in "town" they spoke English."Off the farm"I was also told they didn't shut/close the o in Stock, so it looked like a u, so they just used the u then it was Stuck.may 10th some place else says may 12th for death date.Also repeat Rev War Vet.Wife is Catherine their children are Mary Margaret, bap. 1788,& John George,bap.1789,Margaret, bap. 1791,and John, bap. 1795.
