In Reply to: Mary Lapp nee Hockman , Bucks co, Pa by Terry Ruth of 167

Mary Hockman Lapp and her brothers, Henry, Jacob and Ulrich Hockman-Hackman, all came to America together, probably arriving on the St. Andrew in 1749 with large contingency of Mennonites from Ibersheim on the Rhine. Mary first married Christian Halti who died in 1766. He named his brothers in law in his will. Mary then married John Lapp who died in 1793 and Mary named her brother and their children in her will. There is no evidence that there were any other siblings in this family except Mary, Jacob, Henry and Ulrich. They were almost certainly children of Ulrich Hackman of Ibersheim who died between 1738 and 1743 and the children were probably too young to be listed in the ship lists when they immigrated with relatives in 1749. Johann Jacob Hackman, living in Mannheim, left a letter, dated 1761 in which he indicated that he was 64 years old, only surviving of three sons of Ulrich Hackman and Maria Egli. His brothers were dead and he had eight nieces and nephews- his brothers' children. "Four have gone to America, two live on the Rohrhof, two hours away and two are here with me" The two at Rohrhof and two at Mannheim were children of his brother, Abraham who lived at Rohrhof and died in 1752-- the other four would have to be children of his deceased brother Ulrich and are no doubt the four Hockman-Hackman siblings of Bucks Co.
The name Rood is obviously a corruption of Ruth -the "th" in German often transcribing to a "d" in English. Henry Hackman, brother of Mary was married to Mary Ruth and mentioned a brother-in-law, Abraham Ruth in his will.
