Jacob (Buck) Bock from 2nd Regiment of York Militia participated in the War of 1812.

Biography

Jacob was born about 1789. Jacob Buck was believed to be the son of Frederick Bock and Mary Reichert. In the early 1800s this Menonnite family arrived in Upper Canada. From 1815 to 1850, Jacob and Catharine's children were born in Wilmot Township. He was the first potter in the area. He passed away about 1867. He was buried in Blenheim Mennonite Cemetery in Oxford County.[1]

During the War of 1812, Jacob Buck served as a private in the 2nd York Militia in 1812. On June 4, 1812, Jacob Buck was selected at age 23 for service as a volunteer in the 2nd Flank Company. [2]

On February 15, 1848, Jacob Buck, a yeoman of Waterloo Twp. and a former private in a flank company of the 2nd York, received scrip to the value of 100 acres. [3]

Jacob’s name was not found among the surviving payroll records and he was not recorded in the 2nd York flank company payrolls for the Battle of Queenston Heights on October 13th. His having received a militia land grant suggested that he must have served at some time in a flank company.
