    Census
    • "In the 1850 census there is an Elizabeth Ellisor living in Lexington County, SC, age 58 years. Possibly this is the daughter of Peter Stockman. It is also possible that Elizabeth is deceased, for there is a Thomas Ellisor age 41 yrs living with Anna B. and Walter F. Ruff in Newberry county."

    Alt Birth Abt 1799  [3, 5

      1) Source, Walker-Lyle Genealogy by Robert E Walker, lists Elizabeth Stockman b: Abt 1799 as the daughter of Peter Stockman and Barbara Unknown.
      2) If the alternate dob for Elizabeth Stockman of 1799 is true, then Elizabeth may well be the daughter of Barbara Unk/Mayer? rather than Elizabeth Epting. Steve Mears, Family Tree Compiler.
      3) The name "Elizabeth", to me, lends itself to suggesting that Catherine Elizabeth Epting was the mother rather than Barbara. Steve Mears.

      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)."

    • 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.


      3) Contradicting this:
      a) "Peter Stockman had several more children. I believe all of them are half siblings to the children of Jacob Folk. George Stockman, Catherine Stockman, and Elizabeth Stockman as well as possible a Peter Stockman Jr. round out the family."
