6. Jacob Shook (Might be a child but is unproven)
(Had land surveyed in Randolph Co WV on Cheat River

***(From the section of the book pertaining to Hermanous) When and where
Hermanous Shook/Shuck arrived i nthis country is unknown. Likewise where he
lived prior to Hardy Co is unknown. Lawrence Shook came out of Maryland to
Hardy Co (Source: Maryland Land Records). Lawrence went from Maryland to PA
to take the Oath of allegiance. Some speculate to York Co PA. (Records show
the year 1770 Book 6011 "Naturalization of Maryland Settlers in PA").
There is no proof of the wife of either Lawrence or Hermanous. If one refers
to the ROHRBACK GENEALOGY by Lewis Bunker ROHRBAUGH (1970) Vol III, a
possibility exists for Hermanous.

Lawrence Shook Deed 1758 Frederick Co MD
Lawrence Shook is on the 1776 Rent Rolls of Hardy Co VA
Lawrence Shook is on the 1782,83,84,85 Hampshire Co VA Tax List
Lawrence Shook is on the 1786-87 Hardy Co VA Tax List
Lawrence Shook is on the 1791 Shenandoah Co VA Tax List
Lawrence Shook is on the 1793,1795,96 Greenbrier Co VA Tax List

13 Jan 1802 Hardy Co VA - Lawrence Shook granted power of Attorney to Job
Welton to sell land.

Thats all the book has on Lawrence.. I've kept track of him in a small way,
because of the probability of his connection to my Hermanous Shook.. I've
never found anything to connect them except for their apparent closeness in
Hardy Co. I do know that there are a lot of errors and misinformation out
there, especially on Rootsweb (World Connect), concerning both Lawrence and
Hermanous. We really should all get together and clean it up someday.
