HOFER, HOFFER - Greene & Macon Co, Ill
Posted by: Pat Date: October 22, 2000 at 12:49:31
  of 185

Henry HOFFER (name later shown as HOFER) came from Baden, Germany as a teenager with his widowed Mother (who later remarried, name of husband unknown). First name of Henry's father also unknown. Oldest record I've found of Henry is the 1880 Census (Greene Co, IL) showing he was married to a Hattie (Claracie Harriet Stumbaugh) and they had a 2 year old son, Otis (Otis Oliver). Henry was born December 25, 1849. Census in 1900 shows that Otis (b July 15, 1877) is married to Etta (Sarah Etta Marshall) and living in Decatur, Macon County, IL where he was a barber.

Anyone knowing anymore information, especially about Henry and/or his mother please contact me pinetree@telepath.com.
