Andrew Shuck of NJ, VA, KY


Andrew Shuck (c.1733-1803). Born in the Rhine area of Germany, or the Netherlands. Married Margaret __ c. 1754. Migration path is not certain, but most likely he was in New Jersey by 1759, and lived in Virginia from 1760 to 1783. Some sources contend that he lived in Pennsylvania (possibly Berks Co.) The family moved to Pack Horse Ford, Frederick Co., Virginia (now Shepardstown, Berkeley Co., West Virginia) in 1760, where they lived until after the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). The deed index for Frederick Co. VA does not show any Shuck, Schock, Schock, etc., owning land there during that time period. He migrated c.1785 to the "Low Dutch Colony" in Shelby Co., Kentucky. Andrew died between March and May of 1803 in Shelby Co., KY, naming in his will his wife Margaret, born in Rhine Germany, and his 10 children. Margaret died 1 Jan 1820 in Shelby Co., KY.
