  • Notes  Marriage:
    • 1) "It is possible that Peter had been married previously [to marrying Catherine Epting] as he had a daughter, Anna Maria Stockman who was born 7 April, 1776, only a year or so after Jacob Folk died."
      Source: "Descendants of Jacob Folk" Sep 2001 by Frank, Perry, Mike & James Folk.

      2) "Peter Stockman sold land on 25 Dec 1795 to John Uriah Wicker and his wife Catherine signed the Dower. On 26 Dec 1795 apparently this same transaction was recorded again but again Peter and his wife Catherine signed the deed. peter Stockman's wife was Barbara when land was sold in the 1804 deed reported above. In 1799 when John Zeigler died, Peter Stockman and Barbara Stockman were appointed administrators of his estate. It appears that Peter Stockman had more than one wife and possibly three. Prior to 1784 when Peter assumed guardianship of the Folk children at least two of his children were born. These two, Anna maria and George may be children by a first wife. It is probably that in 1784 Peter married Catharine Folk, widow of Jacob and daughter of John Adam Epting, although this marriage may have taken place earlier. It is unlikely that it occurred early enough for daughter Anna Maria Stockman to have been a daughter of Catherine Epting Folk since her first husband died in 1774 [her husband's death has since been determined to be 1777 - Steve Mears] The first of Peter's wives whose name we know is Catherine who was Peter's wife in 1795. Apparently sometime after 1795 and prior to 1799 Catherine died and Peter amrried a Barbara (last name unknown)."
