The good news is they have a file  on the Haack/Haag families. The bad news is most of the stuff is by Jerry Haag about the Bernville Haag's and not our clan. I did find the following in a list of wills he reviewed.
Will of Jacob Haak probated 9 Feb 1829, Maxatawny Twp., Berks co., PA
Berks co. Will Book Vol 6, p. 291
Son John
 Children by John's first wife: Jacob H., John H.,  Barbara(Hottenstein), also Susanna, George and Esther
Dau Barbara(George Sell)
Exexcs; Grandsons John, Jacob and Benjamin Hottenstein
Now I'm wondering if this son John is mine. He's in the right generation, and he had a son Jacob. Perhaps I'll find out someday!
The Society has a publication, Berks of Old, a compilation of all kinds of records. In them I found some references to civil court dockets which I'll have to look up at the court house. There are seven volumes of these and I didn't have time to get thru all of time!
Vol II No. 3
Civil Court Docket November 1764
Hawk, Andrew vs Hawk, William Henry
Capias Case
Berks County Special Bail Docket 1784-1804
November Term 1784
William Zoll of Reading bound for L 200 as special bail in the case of Jacob Haack vs John Bast and Theobald Bast
Vol II, No. 4 p.22
Civil court Docket August 1765
Hawk, Andrew vs. Philip Scholl Capias Debt L200
Hawk, Andrew vs. Philip Scholl Capias Debt L200
Hawk, William Henry vs Peter Hawber Capias debt for rent L4
Hawk, William Henry vs Philip Scholl Capias Covenant
These forced me to find out what capias means, basically a case in which the sheriff is asked to arrest someone to force him to pay up. If so, looks like Andrew had William Henry arrested once in the first one.
Vol III, No. 3 p. 26
17 Apr. 1743
Andreas Hawk listed among those naturalized who were opposed to swearing an oath; some times these were all lumped in with the Quakers, but Anabaptist German sects also had religious scruples against swearing an oath. This is the Naturalization record you saw listed by Genealogical Publishing Co. It was probably copied from the old Pennsyvania Archives Books. 
I found Grave Stone records for Jacob and Margaretha Dubs at DeLong's German. They verify dates in the  pedigree. I also looked thru the following books and found no Hawk variants:
Maxatwny Union Church
Zion Lutheran in Maxatawny
Hope Cemetery, Kutztown
New Jerusalem Church, Rockland
Hope Cemetery, Dryville
Also found the will of another Jacob Haack who died in 1816 in Cumru Twp. He owned land in Heidelberg Twp and Mahantango Twp, Schuylkill Co. He had a sons John and Jacob also! He is not included in the pedigree, so we don't know where he fits in, if at all. Maybe he is in the Bernville group.
