      2) "It is probable that in 1784 Peter married Catharina Folk, widow of Jacob and daughter of John Adam Epting, although this marriage may have taken place earlier." Source: Cath Eliz Epting & Johann Peter Stockman.

      3) "I believe that Peter Stockman, son of Engel Stockman who was also in the Dutch Fork area, married Jacob's widow, Elizabeth Catherine Epting Folk. " Source: "Descendants of Jacob Folk" Sep 2001 by Frank, Perry, Mike & James Folk.

      4) "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 [this 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 married a Barbara (last name unknown)."

    Guardianship 17 Dec 1784  South Carolina, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    • 1) "Peter Stockman had taken on the responsibility of caring for the children of Jacob Folk following Jacob's death June 20 1777. On December 17, 1784 Peter Stockman was made guardian of Jacob Folk's minor children, John Adam, Elizabeth, and Jacob Junior ... It is likely that John Adam and Jacob Jr. Folk were living with Peter Stockman in 1790. If so, John Adam was 20 years old and Jacob Jr was 18 years old ... his first wife died and he married the Widow Folk. This is the reason that Peter became guardian of the Folk Children. "

    Children

      1 - Anna Maria Stockman
      2 - John George Stockman

      2) In support of this:
      a) 4) "Peter Dickert, b. ca 1773, d. 1854, m. Anna Maria Stockman, b. 7 Apr 1783, d. 19 Apr 1850, d/o Peter Stockman and Catherine Epting Folk, widow of Jacob Folk." Source: Dickert, Peter Family Bio fm Dutch Fork Family Bios.
