Fredric Hoff imigrated from Germany.Married in St. Louis in 1852 to his wife Mary who was from England. Settled in town of Olathe in Kansas Territory in 1856. Children were born in St. Louis and Olathe. Moved from town to a farm in 1863 as town was deemed to dangerous following its sacking by "missouri bushwackers."That farm is now the oldest "same name" homestead in Kansas and is still farmed by descendants.(although soon to give way to suburban encroachment.) My great-grandfather George (1866?) and my grandmother Emma (1895) were both born in the house that still stands there. I have more detailed information and would like to share and trade it with other descendants.
