Klock Connections


The registry came from Roy Nichols, (Arizona) via Dave Klock (Klock Family Newsletter). These pages were typed about the time the typewriter came on the scene, some are fragile and not readable.

Complied and Arranged by George K. Nellis. Ashtabula, Ohio, May 7th, 1866, copied on the typewriter, April 18th, 1884.

Page 1. For the information of the inquisitive, George G. Klock is desirous to give all the information in his power, viz.-It seems that Queen Ann who was a German, was desirous to settle a part of this new country, America, and sent over a colony of Germans to settle here from the River Rhine, and Hesse Cassle, etc., among whom was Henry Klock, grandfather to George G. Klock. The Germans sent a Mr. Livingston over to England to get a charter for them, but he took the charter in his own name, so the Germans left Livingstone manner; some went to Schoharrie, and some to the Mohawk. Henry Klock aforesaid came to the Mohawk in 1708, and settled on the farm now in possession of Joseph G. Klock, Christian Klock, and others. Said Henry Klock is buried on the same old farm, his grave stone says, in 1760. His sons George Klock, John, Jacob, Adam, Conrad, and Joseph Klock, were born on this farm, and some of their children, grand children, great grand children, and great great grand children; and the greater part of the farm is now possession of Joseph G. and Christian Klock.

The deceased, George G. Klock, was born Nov. 12th 1742; this would make his age 91 years, 8 months, and 14 days. He lived in the married state about 60 years. His wife was a Miss Catharine Bellinger. She was born July, 1748; and died July 11th, 1827, aged 79 years. They together, had children born in number 16; and of these 10 are alive (at the writing of , the above, which seems to be without date) five sons, and five daughters The number of grand children is supposed to be about 80; and great grand children, about 81.

Remarks:-The above was copied by Stephen Klock, son of Aunt Susan Klock, the widow of Peter Klock, who resides now in Homer, Cortland Co., N.Y., from a record in his possession. It was doubtless

George Nellis.

Queen Ann who was a German, was desirous to settle a part of this new country, America, and sent over a colony of Germans, to settle here, from the River Rhine, and Hesse Cassle, etc., among whom was Henry Klock, Grandfather to George G. Klock. The Germans sent a Mr. Livingston over to England to get a charter for them, but he took the charter in his own name. So the Germans left Livingston manor, some went to Schoharrie, and some to the Mohawk. Henry Klock aforesaid, went to the Mohawk in A.D. 1708, and settled in Openheim, Montgomery Co., N.Y., on the Genesee turnpike. The old farm is still owned by his (Henry Klock's) descendents, or the greater part of it at least. His sons George (my great Grandfather) John, Jacob, Adam, and Conrad Klock were born on the farm, and so were some of their children, grandchildren, great-grand-children, and great-great grandchildren.

The above was copied from a writing left by Geo. G. Klock, and Peter Nellis.

I copied the above from Peter's Record May 7, 1866. George K. Nellis.

Mary Minnie Nellis, March 25, 1861.

Louisa left me for the first time, while in Dayton Ohio, on the 23d of June 1861.

She left me the second time in 1880. It occurred I think, in the same month, and on the same day of the month, and while living in Chicago, Ill.

She sued me for a divorce, and her bill of charges was so false I left the state, and refused to defend my case, and the consequence was, she was granted a divorce, Oct. 28th, 1880, by Judge Tuley, of the Chicago Courts.

The following I cut from the Chicago Tribune of Oct. 28th, 1880 as it appeared in the Court Decisions in the columns of that paper.

"Judge Tuley yesterday granted a divorce to Louisa J. Nellis from George K. Nellis on the ground of cruetly."

The Chicago Times of the same date had the following report in its columns:--"DIVORCES. Judge Tuley, 1, 23, 3 Louisa J. Nellis from George K. Nellis, decree for divorce for cruelly."

John D. Nellis was my Grandfather. His father was born Dec. 25, 1729 and died at age of 89 years and 4 days. His name was David Nellis. He was a Farmer and Weaver; he had but one Son, but he had 3 or 4 daughters. He was small of stature, and wore short breeches and knee-buckles; used tobacco and ardent spirits, as was the customs in his times. He is my Great Grandfather.

My Grandfather, (John D. Nellis) married a widow Keller, whose husband was killed in the Revolutionary war, in battle. Her maiden name was Nancy Garloch. She had two sons by her first husband, (Mr. Keller) and one daughter, who died in infancy. Her oldest son was named Jacob Keller; and the youngest son was named Henry Keller. They both grew up to manhood, and married, raised families and have long since died. Occupation, hasbandman. Jacob had a large family, and died with the dyspepsia. In those days the law gave all the property to the oldest son, and the rest of the children got nothing. Hence Jacob inherited all the property of his father, and

Page 16. The following in relation to the death of David Nellis was copied from the columns of an Elmore Paper.

"Our community was shocked on Tuesday last by the announcement that Mr. David Nellis had died on Sunday last at Rome, N. Y., and that his remains had been brought home for burial.

Mr. Nellis accompanied his wife to Rome, NY about the first of Sept. to have a cancer treated by a physician at that place. After the treatment had been commenced, Mrs. Nellis was confined to her bed and endured excruciating pains. Mr. Nellis was untiring in his attentions as a nurse, and would scarcely suffer anyone to wait on her but himself. The confinement and anxiety, together with a loss of rest, brought on a fever which laid him on a sick bed for about two weeks. He was slowly recovering, when an attack to erysipelas caused his death on Sunday last. He was buried in the old cemetery here on Tuesday afternoon, attended by a large concourse of citizens.

Mr. Nellis came to this county about 17 years ago, and by his industry and business tact in the disposal of his farm products, and by rigid economy in his expenses, he had amassed a large fortune. The source from which he derived his greatest income, was loaning money at exorbitant rates of interest, and by discounting notes at such rates as the necessities of the sellers would compel them to take. While ignoring the law regulating the rate of interest to be charged, Mr. Nellis firmly believed it to be a perfectly fair business transaction to get such rates as he could.

He has had business relations with a very large portion of the

Page 17. community, and will be missed on our streets as much as any of our business men."
