About Johannes Zook

- Labeled "Tory" during the Revolution, he was said to have spent time in the Reading jail for refusal to bear arms. - Moved from Berks Co to Mifflin Co in Kish Valley with his brother Christian, 1 mile southwest of Belleville in 1793. By purchase from the Commonwealth and from earlier Scotch-Irish settlers, the soon accumulated more than a thousand acres of land stretching from the center of the valley to the top of Jack's Mountain. Both John & Christian had large families, with a total of fourteen sons. (ZkHd p. 180) - Locust Grove Mennonite Church began 1898 on ground about 1 mile west of Belleville or a half mile north of original John Zook farm. - Upon Johannes' death, John & Christian declined to take their father's real estate at the appraised value. In 1807, they requested the Orphans' Court to award the upper part of the old plantation to their brother David. Jacob took the lower part, Joseph accepted the merchant mill adjacent Hugh McClelland, and Abraham took the 174-acre tract east of Allensville.... (ZkHd p. 183) - Johannes owned 700 acres at the time of his death.* Reference: RootsWeb's WorldConnect - SmartCopy: Aug 22 2017, 22:39:30 UTC
