son of Rev. Moses Hallock &
Margaret (Allen) Hallock

m. Mrs. Elizabeth Johnson, an English lady
children: Moses, Homan B, Gerard J, Samuel, William A, Margaret, and Sarah.

in 1826 went as a missionary printer to the island of Malta, in the Mediterranean, and some years after to Smyrna. When the American Bible Society commenced the publication of the Arabic Bible in New York, it is said that only two persons in the world understood the manufacture of the Arabic type. These were an aged German and Homan Hallock. About this time he returned to Plainfield where with the assistance of his son Samuel he carried on the manufacture of the Arabic type. When after a few years the work was transferred to Beyrout, Syria, Samuel went there also and took the position which his father had occupied, and is still engaged in that work [in 1891]. At aged nearly ninety, Homan made his home with his daughter Sarah and her husband Chas. C Streeter in Cummington.
