Dear John ,

You are forming some interesting theorys here in this missive and hitting on one of my reasons for being VERY INTERESTED in James P. Hoff .

Amos has son born about the same time as Powell .

Amos leaves Fairfax county Virginia in 1823.

Amos is missing the oldest son on the 1830 census of Washington County Ohio. Powell is listed at Fearing in 1830.

Powell Marries Martha Brewster in 1824.

What is saying James P. Hoff was the son of Enoch ??

What is a good theory about Amos FULL name ?
Was he the James Huff/Hoff born 1775 and living on/near Powell's property in 1850 Peoria Illinois ?

We have with undisputable legal documents (land deeds ) proven Amos was the son of POWELL Hoff and Prudence Sutton.

Now just what year was James P. Hoff born in and what did the P. stand for ????

This was the line I was talking about that MAY be disturbed as we continue to search by documents this Washington county Ohio clan of Hoffs.

Here is what we can prove by documents for James P. Hoff

Born in Virginia about 1804.

Has children outside of Ohio ,even though Enoch was in Washington county AT least by 1810.

Amos name POSSIBLY James Amos Hoff. Amos father PAPER PROVEN named Powell/Sutton.

JAMES P. (maybe Powell) Hoff.

Who is the most likely candidate as being Amos son if not Powell born 1801 ????

This is just in the WHAT MIGHT OF HAPPENED theory stage to see where we need to look at documents , but it does have some merit.

When did Nancy Duncan Hoff die ? She was left many tracts of land by her father . Did she leave any that had to be divided amoung her heirs after her death on a land deed ? Did Nancy go back to Fluvanna County Virginia after Enoch died ???

It is my belief that where ever Nancy Duncan Hoff died, there is a record of heirs on a deed of sale or estate settlement, and it will be important if we can find it.

Just rattling on with theorys ,
Your Buddy,
Cuz Larry HUFF
