Thanks so much for posting all that information about William Hoff. William is my gggggrandfather through his daughter, Nancy, (16 Nov 1810 - 4 Feb 1874) and her husband, whom you have correctly (AFAIK) listed as Richard Milton Young, (1 Aug 1800 - 1870). They had 6 boys, all of whom fought in Louisiana units in the Civil war, and one girl (or two, depending on the source, but I think only 1 is correct, unless the second died very young). Their second youngest son Burgess Theodore Young, is my gggrandfather. He was a lawyer and served in the LA legislature.
I'll send you an email, in case you're not following this thread any more.
