WARNING: We do not have proof that this is a family with the father named JOHN VAN AKEN/ VANNOCKER OR VAN OCKER. The connection is highly circumstantial based on the commonness of locality, names and dates. We welcome all comments, additions and corrections. Please contact Ann Croston firstname.lastname@example.org with updates.
We have many “cousins” related on these lines and help with researching, especially in Albany, Schenectady, Genesee, and Chenango Co, NY, would be very much appreciated.
There has been some suggestion that John Van Nocker/Van Ocker could be of the lines:
Marinus, Pieter, John, John….
Marinus, Pieter, Jan, Johannes…
Marinus, Pieter, Gideon, Johannes…
Research on these lines might prove or disprove a connection.
