born in 1839 in Bethanien, St. Jan and was the son of
Adolf Hermann Ziock and Marie Caroline Lindemann. In 1868 Herman (Jr.) was called
to service in Laborador and left the West Indies with the trading ship "Harmony".
He served as a trader and clerk in far north Labrador at the station
Hebron. He died on July 20th, 1868 when his shotgun accidentally
discharged. He was buried in Hebron July 24, 1868. Hermann Ziock
is on the list of Moravian Missionaries in Labrador. Dr. Hans Rollman informed me that the
settlement of Hebron is no longer operative but that the cemetery &
grave of Herman Adolph Ziock could still be there.

Hello! I stumbled across your website, and
wanted to let you know that
I've transcribed the tombstones from Hebron, Labrador, and
I did transcribe the tombstone for Herman Adolph Ziok (how it is
on the tombstone). It reads:
Herman Adolph ZIOK geb d 9. Juli, 1839 in Emaus auf St. Jan
heimgegangen de 20 Oktober, 1868.
I hope this is of some interest!

Thanks to George
Brown of Cadet, Mo. for telling me about Google
is where I found the above picture from circa 1860.
These are some GREAT photos!
One includes what they think is the old cemetery.
This is probably where Herman Adolph is buried.
No tombstones are visible. Dale Jarvis who
sent the email above told me that the Moravians had
small, flat tombstones. So if unattended grass
could easily cover them in time.
