Yankton County Queries - W

Vicki Okerlund Mon Oct 12, 1998 I am trying to research the WALLOCK surname. I am specifically interested in finding out information on Jacob Wallock (last name could also bespelled Walock, Waloch, or Walloch). Jacob Wallock married Eva Placzek in Poland or Germany about 1860. We have reason to believe he immigrated to the US around 1880 or 1882. We do not have any records about where he immigrated from, but know Jacob died in Lesterville, Yankton, SD in January of 1919. We know his parents were Adam Wallock and Katerina Mackovich but we have no other information about any of his (Jacob's) siblings. I have read in the Yankton County Book that there was a Joseph Wallock who son was August Wallock who was a Yankton County Commissioner for many years. We have reason to believe from an Aunt that Jacob had a brother named Joseph, but to date have not been able to link our Jacob Wallock with this Joseph--who we found on the 1900 census. I have also requested a death certificate for this Joseph Wallock from the state of South Dakota, but their files did not find anyone matching. If any one has any information regarding this family and could link these two names together,could you please contact me.
