Jonah Hoke's Grave

This is the Headstone for Jonah Hoke, b. November 20, 1830, Elizabethville, Dauphin Co, PA. He was married to Caroline 'Lovina' Moyer, December 08, 1864, Dauphin Co, PA. Shortly after giving birth to two sons, William (1865) and John Henry (1867), Lovina Hoke died and I believe the two sons died soon after birth or around the same time their mother died. This wiped out Jonah's entire family so he moved to the Valley View area of Hegins Township, in Schuylkill Co, PA, to start over. He married Carolina Gable, May 15, 1870, Schuylkill Co, PA. To this union was given 5 children. Jonah Hoke died December 18, 1901, in Valley View, Hegins Twp. Schuylkill Co, PA, and is buried in the Valley View Church of God Cemetery. He served in Civil War, Co. A, 172 Regt, PA Vol Inf Militia Union as a Private. His Headstone says he also was in the 176th Reg but his pension papers does not mention this. He was a member of GAR.
Date & Place: at Valley View Church of God Cemetery in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania United States
