Johan Georg Koch will be known simply as George Koch. He was
baptized in the Evangelical Brethren Congregation and the Society or more
commonly refered to as the Lancaster Moravian Church.
He will remain a member of the Moravian faith until we lose his records
and what appears to be a trend away from the church. George and Maria's
first home was in Lancaster and he appears on the Tax List in 1779 and
1780 as a tailor and in 1782 he possessed a cow. In October 1787, infant
Elizabeth was born, died and buried in Lancaster. In October 1789, Sarah
was born in Graceham, Frederick County, Maryland. Obviously, George,
Maria and their surviving three children moved to Maryland between 1787
and 1789. On June 28, 1791, their son George died and was buried at
Graceham Cemetery (plot 52) In 1794, Maria was a Probationer and in 1797
both were readmitted to communion.
In 1780 George was listed as a tailor and tobacconist in Graceham,
Maryland.
Maria (DUCKNESS) KOCH died on October 3, 1810. She was buried in
Graceham Cemetery, plot 52. Her birth is recorded as April 23, 1758.
After Maria's death in 1810 it appears George sold or had to sell
off his property with the last transaction on April 5, 1814. This last
transaction reveals Catherine who signed the deed with George.
No futher records of George and Catherine have been found but most likely
moved from Graceham where a prerequisite required active membership in
the Moravian Church.
Today, August 10, 1995 Found a reference in Jacob Engelbrecht's
Death Ledger Item 4790 on page 11: "John George KOCH July 31, 1835, age
86, of Moravian Church, 112". [Item 1000] This needs futher searching to
determine the burial place, assume it is at the Moravian Church.
