Looking for info on SUSAN SOPHIA MOFFETT, born in 1748 probably in Northern Virginia (but possibly in NJ), and who in ~1771-2 married the Rev. DANIEL HOFF (1746 Raritan, NJ - 1802 VA), following the death of his first wife, LAURA TITUS, with whom he had 3 sons. SUSAN and DANIEL were believed to have been married in VA shortly after he moved to VA from NJ in about 1770, and his first wife died. SUSAN's husband, DANIEL HOFF, died in 1802 at their farm near Manassas, Prince William Co., VA, having left SUSAN with some 7 children. SUSAN SOPHIA MOFFETT's father was the Rev. WILLIAM MOFFETT, as noted in a May 1815 obituary of Susan's eldest son, ENOCH HOFF (1773 - 1815) in Washington Co., OH. It indicated that WILLIAM MOFFETT was a minister (denomination unknown) and that he made the move from Alexandria, VA to Washington Co., OH with his daughter and her children in 1805. He does not show up on the 1810 Census in Washington Co., OH, so it is believed that he died there in Washington Co., OH between 1805 - 1810. SUSAN SOPHIA MOFFETT HOFF died in Washington Co., OH on 16 July 1819, but her exact burial site in Washington Co., OH is unknown, as is her father's.
I am a descendant of WILLIAM MOFFETT and is daughter, SUSAN SOPHIA MOFFETT, and her son, JONATHAN F. HOFF (1775 Pr. Wm. Co., VA - 1812, Fearing Twp., Washington Co., OH), and his son, POWELL HOFF (1801 VA - 1870 Dallas Co., IA), and his son, JOHN H. HOFF (1830 Chesterhill, Athens (now Morgan) Co., OH - 1909 Dallas Co., IA), and his son, JOHN CASSIUS HOFF (1875 Dallas Co., IA - 1960 Des Moines, IA), and his son, JOHN RICHARD HOFF (1909 DSM, IA - 1970 DSM, IA), and me, JOHN SCOTT HOFF (1946 DSM, IA - now in Chicago).
