I was wondering if anyone was related to the following people?

Frederick Hoffman, born 20 Feb 1830 in Bavaria, Germany. He married Mary Wolfe in 1859 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He died on 20 Feb 1830 in Decatur County, Indiana.

Mary Wolfe was born on 25 Jul 1837 in Germany and died 4 Apr 1903 in Greensburg, Indiana. Her parents were Jacob Wolfe & Mire(?) Keller.

They had 11 children.

1. Philip Hoffman, born 20 Oct 1859 in Decatur County, Indiana.

2. Henrietta 'Yetta' Hoffman, born 22 Apr 1862 in Decatur County, Indiana.

3. Henry P. Hoffman, born 13 Jan 1863 in Decatur County, Indiana. He married Clemma Catherine Land on 29 Oct 1889 in Decatur County, Indiana. They had 2 children, McKinley Hobart Hoffman and Mary Gay Hoffman. He married his second wife Mary Little on 4 Jun 1900 in Madison County, Indiana. They had 4 children: John Allen Hoffman, Hubert Don Hoffman, Paul Edward Hoffman, and Anna Elizabeth Hoffman. He died on 15 Mar 1921 in Anderson, Indiana.

4. Adam Hoffman, born 30 Oct 1864 in Decatur County, Indiana. He married Mary Jane Thackery on 31 Dec 1887 in Decatur County, Indiana. They had 4 children: Bertha May Hoffman, Bernice Jesse Hoffman, Myrtle Benise Hoffman, and Herschel Thomas Hoffman. He died on 9 Aug 1931 in Adams, Indiana.

5. Louisa Hoffman, born 29 Mar 1866 in Decatur County, Indiana. She married William Simons Korporal on 22 Sep 1903 in Grant County, Indiana. She died on 17 Oct 1946. It seems as if she had two sons before she married William, who were named John Fred Hoffman and Edward Frank Hoffman. I do not know who their father was.

6. George Frank Hoffman, born 28 Feb 1868 in Decatur County, Indiana. He married Joanna Lucy Larison on 3 Sep 1896 in Boone County, Indiana. They had a daughter Mary A Hoffman who died at 11 months of age. He died on 13 Mar 1937.

7. Katherine 'Katie, Kate' Hoffman, born 25 Jun 1871 in Decatur County, Indiana.

8. Rosa Hoffman, born 20 Oct 1872 in Decatur County, Indiana. She married John Henry Towler. She died on 3 Oct 1905 in Adams, Indiana.

9. William Louis Hoffman, born 23 Nov 1872 in Greensburg, Indiana. He married Maude Essie Burke on 25 Dec 1906 in Greensburg, Indiana. They had Hazel M Hoffman and Esther Hoffman. He died on 16 Apr 1959 in Madison County, Indiana.

10. Phoebe 'Bena' Hoffman, born 31 Oct 1873 in Fugit, Indiana. She died on 13 Feb 1905 in Decatur County, Indiana of tuberculosis.

11. Maggie Cena Hoffman, born 2 Nov 1877 in Kingston, Indiana. She married Herman Robbins on 20 Oct 1900 in Greensburg, Indiana. They had Frederick John Hoffman. She married John Henry Towler (who married her sister Rosa) on 2 Aug 1906 in Greensburg, Indiana.

If anyone is related to this family or knows anything about it please let me know.
