Hi Nancy:

Sorry I was of no help, it could be possible
that Johann Ernst had a son that I did not find. Johann Ernst did bring his family to the USA. I am not sure of the year.My great
grandmother (his daughter) was married in the USA 21 Sept 1856 Alexander County Illinois.She was 18 years old.They probably
rmigrated from Hahausen in the yrs 1844-1846
as the son Johann H.Andreas was confirmed in Lutter in 1844.There were a lot of other
Hofmeister families who emigrated to USA from
Hauausen mainly in the years 1852 to 1854.
SUCH AS Christian Hofmeister (b.1820)Philipp H.(b 1805)and Philipp H. (b. 1831).
His wife Anna Catharine Elisabeth Keck Hofmeister died on 15 Jan.1877 as it is told in her birth entry.So perhaps she did not emigrate to America with her family, I must find that out.Hope this may have helped a little
