The SHOOK family name is actually an Americanized spelling for peoples of German, Dutch, Swiss, & Austrian origin. The original European names were probably Schök, Schuch, Schuh, or Schoch. Some other spellings found in America are Shuck & Schuck. The original spelling of our Shook line was SCHUCK, as revealed on a tombstone in the Shook Family Cemetery, on Kemp Lane in old Shookstown, just outside of Frederick Maryland.
The ancestry on these pages is dedicated to Peter Shook(Schuck), 1772-1855, born & died in Frederick Co. Maryland, & his hundreds of decendants. Nor should we forget all the wives & thier ancestral families, while not being born into the Shook family name, were just as much a contributor to the bloodline.
