JOANNES PETER ZIOCK* - was born in Mailand in 1752 or 1754.  It is unknown at this time who his parents were. He is the earliest Ziock anyone has been able to find so far. His occupation was a glaser.  The Hattingen Archives found a Peter Ziock living in Hattingen in 1799.  According to the Hattingen Archives Peter had two sons:    Johan Friedrich born 1786 & Henrich Wilhelm born 1792.  (To see the correspondence regarding this click here.)  Peter was first married to Catherina Margaretha Wunnenberg in 1781.  She died between 1785 & 1791.  Peter Ziock's second wife is Anna Sybila Arens who he married in 1791.  Peter Ziock died before 1833.  According to Stadtarchiv Hattingen he probably died circa 1823.

There are numerous church records posted throughout the Ziock pages.  Thank you sooooooo much to Horst Lerner for going to Hattingen & photographing the original church records & sharing the information & pictures with us!
