Mary Denlinger Hockman's father, Michael was a Mennonite from the Ibersheim area of the Rhineland, who immigrated to the Conestoga region of Pennsylvania about 1717. Mary was specifically named as Mary, wife of Jacob Hockman, Jr., in the settlement of her father's estate in 1749 (Ralph Denlinger, The Denlinger Family; Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage, July 1980).

After Jacob Hockman's death, Mary and her family apparently lived on Sandy Hook and rented out the land near Woodstock. As the widow, Mary received her third from the settlement of Jacob's estate in May 1772. She is called Mary Hockman when Leonard Balthis appeared as a witness for her in a suit against John Marr in November 1772. She probably married Joseph Funk, perhaps as his second wife, shortly after that. Joseph Funk died before 1783 and by 1785 Mary was married to Michael Klipple of Shenandoah County. Her death date is unknown but it was before December 1801, when Klipple wrote his will. No mention was made of Mary. The will was probated 12 April 1803 with Jonas Crabill as executor (Shenandoah County Will Book F, p. 110).

Mary married Jacob Hockman, son of Jacob Hagmann and Unknown. (Jacob Hockman was born about 1720 in Ibersheim, Rhein Pfalz, Germany and died in 1766 in Strasburg, Virginia.)
