Juliana Hoke

Juliana Hoke Zimmerman
Juliana was christened Christina Juliana Hok in Plieningen, W├╝rttemberg (now Germany) (Evangelische Kirche, Church Records: Kirchenbuch, FHL 1,055,927 p171. " 1798: Nov born 26; chr. 27; Lorentz Hok, miller, Frederika, born Hartmannin; 72 Christina Juliana..." Plieningen (OA. Stuttgart) Taufen 1558-1808). I love her name, Juliana. She is my 2nd great-grandmother and she came to the United States of America as a young girl. At 17 she married another German emigrant, George Gottlob Zimmerman 14 April 1816 in Pennsylvania.

Juliana and George had 12 children, 9 girls and 3 boys. Sadly, 2 boys and 3 girls died as infants or young children. George was a teacher so the family moved frequently. She and her family came to Utah in 1852 with the Henry Walton company. They were early settlers of the town of Lehi, Utah. She died in Utah in 1864 at the age of 66.
