Notes on Rudolph Mauck:
The first record of Rudolph in Virginia appears in the records of the Lutheran Minister John Casper Stoever when Stoever baptized Rudolph's daughter Elizabeth at Opequon 02 May 1736. Opequon later became part of Frederick County, VA. Rudolph was born before 1714, and appears in the records of Lancaster County, PA in 1730. Rudolph purchased 400 acres on Mill Run in Augusta County, VA 17 Jan 1749. This area later became Frederick County, then Dunmore County in 1772, was renamed Shenandoah in 1778, and was included in Page County when it was formed in December 1831. It was part of Orange County, prior to the formation of Augusta County
Rudolph died in 1750. His son Rudolph Mauck Jr. eventually moved to Rockingham County, VA before 1782, then to Bourbon County, KY about 1787 and changed the spelling of their surname to Mock. Rudolph Jr. owned land on Mill Run in what later became Page County, VA, adjacent Daniel Mauck. Daniel is believed to have been a son of Rudolph and lived at Hamburg, where he died in 1803. Some of his descendants moved on to Gallia County, OH and others remain in the Shenandoah Valley to this day. Daniel's descendants retained the surname spelling of Mauck, with one exception, whose descendants currently spell their surname as Mouck. Living adjacent Daniel Mauck was Henry Mauck, who is also believed to have been a son of Rudolph Mauck Sr. Henry died intestate in 1787 in what would later become Page County His probate identified 5 daughters but no sons.
The first record of Rudolph appears on 4 Aug 1730 in Conestoque, Lancaster County, PA when Rudy was found guilty of assault and battery and fined one shilling (1). Rudolph's last name is spelled Mauck, Mauk, and Mauks in this record.
Rudolph appears in the records of the Lutheran Minister John Casper Stoever when Stoever baptized Rudolph's daughter Elizabeth at Opequon 02 May 1736 (2). The last name in this record is spelled Maag. Opequon referred to the area of current day Frederick County, VA that borders Opequon Creek. It is possible Rudolph traveled to this area to have his daughter baptized, versus living there. Rudy and Mildred's births are estimated as being at least 17 years before the baptism of Elizabeth, however, the above court record in Lancaster County, PA would indicate Rudy was probably born before 1714.
On 20 Jan 1744 Rudia Moak appears in the probate inventory of George Everts (3). On 21 Apr 1746 Rudolph Maag appears as an appraiser for the estate of Abraham Strickler dec'd, in Augusta County, VA (4).
Rudolph purchased 400 acres on Mill Run in Augusta County, VA 17 Jan 1749 (5). This area later became Frederick County, then Dunmore County in 1772 and was renamed Shenandoah in 1778. It was part of Orange County, prior to the formation of Augusta County
On 22 Aug 1749 Nicholas Long, son of Philip Long, had 400 acres surveyed. The chain carriers were Jacob Rodecap and Rudy Mock (7). This may have been Rudolph Sr., or it could have been Rudolph Jr.
Rudolph appears as an adjacent property owner to Jacob Roadcap who lived adjacent Mill Run, 16 Sep 1749 (5). Rudolph Moick appears as an adjacent property owner to Lodowick Selser, son of Mathias Selser, in Augusta County 8 Aug 1750. Rudolph's property is described as being on "Massanuttin Run" (5).
On 27 Nov 1750 Paul Lung [Long] was appointed administrator of Rudy Mauck, with Frederick Frailey and Peter Scholl sureties (6). This established Rudolph's date of death. Rudolph's inventory was conducted by Mathias Selzer, Daniel Stover and Jacob Burnet 7 Mar 1751 (6).
On 30 Mar 1755 Casper Taylor, assignee of Lewis Pence, assignee of Rudy Moick, assignee of Mildred Moick surveyed 200 acres on the South fork of the Shenandoah River by Mill Run adjacent Rudy Moick, Jacob Rodecap, Matthias Selser. The chain carriers were Rudy Moick and Paul Long. This deed states that Mildred was widowed, and had remarried and moved to Carolina (@@@@7).
