I have since found out it is James Hoff not John who was the father of Vianah Jane Hoff. I do not know who his parents were. I'm still looking of them. I do not know when James and Lydia were married but they are both buried in the Baker Cemetery in Franklin County, Mo. Their daughter Vianah Jane married Cyrus H. Baker in 1854 in Washington County.That's why the Baker Cemetery. Their children (I have 5 girls) were born in Franklin and Washington Counties, Mo. Which line are you from?
