Jacob Bockoven b. 31 Mar 1803 d. 15 Apr 1882 (and was m. to Eliza Dalrymple) was my husband's 2d great grandfather. I am trying to find Jacob's ancestors.

One web site (Simons-Markely family site) seems to link my Jacob to Captain Jacob Bockoven (Lt. George's brother). It shows my Jacob's daughter Maria (dates are correct) as the granddaughter of Captain Jacob. BUT, Captain Jacob was born in 1735 and his wife Elizabeth Whitenac was born in 1765; that seems rather a large gap (but possible). Maybe I am missing a generation? Can anyone help? I have good family records of Jacob and Eliza's children's dates to share.

Never mind! I figured it out. I was missing a generation (George, son of Jacob, father of another Jacob). Pat

I thought I would correct your error about Elizabetha Weidknecht (Whiteneck, Witenec, var. spellings) (spelled Whitekernek in marriage records) the wife of Jacob Bockhoven, as he and she were Married 1765 in Morristown, NJ, (Presby. Church records) according to old family reasearch. She was born in 1746 and died in 1838; Jacob born 1735 and died 19 March 1819 in Sussex, NJ. Elizabeth's father, Pleichard Dietrich Weidknecht, wrote his will 30 Nov 1761, and as he mentioned Elizabetha she was certainly born before 1765. I have pasted a comment about Pleichard and his children below. Pleichard was also known as "Bliker" or "Blakert" as was his first son, Pleichard II.

Pleichard Dieterich, b. 15 March 1698 - Adelshofen, Baden, Germany, baptismal sp.: Pleichard Dietrich Wider and Cath. Juliana Gauder (Adelshofen Chbk.).

He was erroneously notedas George Fred in the family of Andreas in N. Y . City in 1710/11 (HJ).The will of Blakert (Pleichard) Whitenach Sr. of Morristown, N.J. was dated 30 Nov 1761 and probated 22 Oct 1777 (N.J. Wills: Lib. 19, p. 278).Pleichard Dieterich md. Anna/ Ann (a family name coming down in theBockoven family suggests she might have been Anna Henn , but more proof is needed) (HJ). The ch. of Pleichard Dieterich and Anna/Ann were:
Andreas ( Will).
Pleichard (Will).
Johannes (Will).
Margaretha(Will).
Jean (Will).
Anna (Will).
Martha (Will).
Maria (Will). Pages from the Bockoven Family Bible kindly supplied by Alfred A. Hagedorn note she was b. 7 July 1740 and md. George Bockoven 12 April 1759.
Catharina (Will).
Elisabetha (Will). She md. Jacob Bockoven (perAlfred Hagedorn).

Thanks Cheryl. I did see that and should have "fixed" my query.

By the way, Elizabeth W's will is abstracted on LDS Film #862020 (Delaware Co., OH Wills . ., Vol 1, 1811-34) "Page 289. Elizabeth Bockoven. Berlin Twp., written 14 May, 1838, probated 8 July, 1845. Wit. Thomas Lewis, Joseph Roloson. Heirs: son Jacob Bockoven; son George Bockoven; Elizabeth, wife of son George. Appraisers Joseph Roloson, John Lewis, Joseph Glover. Exec. Henry Hodgden. Security Jacob Bockoven, George Bockoven." Funny, but I just happened to be looking at that yesterday. I don't know why it took to long to probate the estate - the 1845 date is right between the death dates of son George (1848) and his wife Elizabeth Maring (1843).

By the way, I really appreciated your website with all the good Whitenack (whatever spelling) information, although I haven't looked at it recently. I'll take a look at the info. in today's message to see if anything's new.

FYI, my husband's Bockoven line is:
Captain Jacob Bockoven m. Elizabeth Whitenack (d. Delaware Co, Ohio)
George Bockoven m. Elizabeth Maring (both b. New Jersey, d. in Delaware Co., OH)
Jacob G. Bockoven m. Eliza Dalrymple (both b. New Jersey, d. in Delaware Co., OH)
Martha G. Bockoven m. Albert Judson Caulkins (both b. & d. in Delaware Co., OH)

I have quite a bit of info. on these families.

Thanks again, Pat

Hi Sean,

You show Elizabeth Maring as both the first and second wife of George Bockoven. The birth year you show for her the second time matches what I have.

I descend from their daughter Mary (Polly), who married Jesse Havens on 18 Nov 1819. Their children were:

Gustin, 1827-1895
Alfred
Ransom
Danford, about 1842-?

Gustin Havens married Harriett Alice Barrows (1828-1903). Their children were:

Mary Jane (Mollie), 1852-1934, m. Octavus Cicero Chambers, 1849-1926
Blake Wales, ?-1937, m. Clara McKinnie, ?-1944
Albert H. m. Jennie Searle
Helen, ?-1927, m. Daniel B. Jaynes, ?-1907

Surnames: Caulkins Calkins Davenport Dunham Bockoven Bockover
Lee Ann - if your message this morning was directed to me specifically - it looks like you have more than I do on George and Lenora (Davenport) Caulkins. My husband's grandmother Chloe Elizabeth (Caulkins) Goodell was George Caulkins's sister and I don't generally research much beyond one generation of siblings' descendants. Chloe moved from Delaware Co directly to California and did not live in Kansas or Nebraska.

The only thing I see that I have that's not in your posting is that Lenora was the daughter of Atwood and Avis (Dunham) Davenport.

You may find more information in: Donald W. Davis, Irvine Davis, and Paul Davis, Caulkins Family History: Relating to the William O. Caulkins Ancestry (Logan, Utah: D. W. Davis, 1993; on FHL film #1,598,279, Item 14). William O. Caulkins was George's brother and was also one of the siblings who left Delaware Co for Kansas and/or Nebraska. The Davises (two of whom are William O's grandsons) did a lot of on-site research in Hamilton Co and there is probably information in their work that I did not put in my database; also photographs and family stories that give a good picture of what conditions were like when they first moved west. (You can rent this film from your local Family History Center.)
