Hi John,

Yes, he was German. Family legend says he was from Alsace Lorraine, but all research on that area or immigration records have not found him. I would really appreciate a look-up for this. Right now all I know is he was married in Quebec in 1772 to Marie Charlotte Perillard and was a soldier. I have exausted all leads with French military records and from the fact that he was an Anglican have been trying to find British records too. I haven't found any German troop records except Hessian but that is too late in time as he was in New Orleans by 1777. I can't get a clear picture of the military in MOntreal between the end of the French & Indian War and the beginning of the Revolution. So, yes, please see what you can find. Thank you, Linda

The spelling variations so far in Canada for Hoffbauer are Hossbauer and Ofpower. But others would be Hofbauer and Hofbaur/Hoffbauer and Huffbauer/Hufbauer and various uses of -bower.
