I have been doing some research on my geneaology. Christian Roof was married to a Sarah A. Roof and they had a son in 1871 by the name of Adolphus J. Roof. He married a woman named Catherine Strader Roof and they resided in Ohio together. One of their sons, Sheldon Roof, was my grandfather.
I am also trying to figure out who the parents of Christian Roof were. He emigrated to the U.S. from Germany at the age of 1 year in 1837. If you have any information on his family please post it.
