Johann Engel Stockman came to America in 1749, giving allegiance to King George II at Philadelphia Courthouse on 17 Oct of that year. He was baptized Johann Engelberth Stockmann on 2 Dec 1725 and married Anna Maria Schmidt on 2 July 1747 in the German Reformed Church in Burbach, Nassau Siegen (Westphalia). The same Church records reveal a daughter of this couple, Anna Elisabeth, b. 24 Oct 1748.


After arriving in America, Engel Stockman lived for a few years in Frederick Co., MD, then came to the S.C. Dutch Fork. Ingle Stockman obtained a 133 acre grant near Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Pomaria, in 1786 and which he sold shortly afterward to John Kinard (Nby Deeds I-30). In this deed the occupation of Ingle Stockman is given as Surgeon. When he sold land in 1786, his wife's name was given as "Katherine."


Angel Stockman lost a horse in service under General Pinckney during the Rev. War. (AA7402).
