About Daniel Hallock

Early History of Pope Co D Porter West Feb 11 1903 Out of print

In 1846 a young man whose name was Jacob L Shinn organized Symp Moffit's

company of 'mounted men, which company was called into the service of

the United States by the president of the United States under the act

of Congress calling for volunteers approved May 13th 1846. During the

time they were preparing to get ready to march, they were called together

for the purpose of drilling, the music furnished was by Matison Shinn fifer,

and Daniel Hallock of Norristown drummer. The company prepared commissary

wagons and the day set for them to leave was a big day. They mounted their

horses and under the firing of cannon, started on the line of march to

join Gen Taylor in Mexico. I can't describe the scene, it was really heart

rending to see mothers parting with sons, wives with husbands, sweethearts

and lovers, and friends shaking hands with friends, perhaps for the last

time. Many never returned, Capt Symp Moffit never returned. Going to

Mexico at that time was harrowing to think of much less to face an

infuriated foe. No railroads, no telegraphs. After a battle it took months to get particulars.
