History Of Levin & Mary Lizzie Molock

Levin was the son of Lacey E. Molock. Lacey Molock was born in 1836 and died in 1911. There is no known information about his father. Family members have said his father was German. He went back to Germany and left the farm land to Lacey and her son Levin. Levin and his mother Lacey, cleared the land of trees. Levin was a farmer all his life and according to accounts, a very enterprising one. He and two other farmers brought a wheat thresher together and went around threshing other farmers wheat for profit. He also rigged up a contraption that would saw up wood. When crops were laid by, he sawed wood for other farmers. Evidence of being successful attest to the fact, he was among the first to own a new Oldsmobile car. One of his nephews told the tale that "he had a hard time learning to drive. Once he was following a friend riding a bicycle and every time the biker turned he followed him until he almost caused the biker to drive in the ditch." Most of his nieces and nephews remember the Oldsmobile being in the garage most of the time.

He had a very strong faith in God. He became local preacher at the Waters Chapel Church in Fork Neck. He could often be heard every Sunday morning singing loud and sometimes off-tune (smile).

One grandson's wife recalls he often preached very long sermons. She related an incident in which Benjamin Wilson pulled his coattail to try to get him to bring his sermon to an end. He interrupted his sermon and told him, "you better let go of my coattail."

His strong influence became a motivating factor in influencing three of his children to become ordained ministers.

Mary Lizzie was hired by a wealthy family as a nurse maid for their daughter and to do domestic work. This gave her an opportunity to travel to Europe and other countries with the family. She worked and saved her money. This accounts for the fact that she and Levin did not marry until she was twenty. Even though she was mother to nine living children, she took pride in keeping a well appointed home. She found time as her did to give time to the church. Her grandchildren remember spending unforgettable summers running around the farm. We especially recall eating delicious food on tables laden with food under the trees in the yard
