|I am researching the Haft/Hoeft family.My Great-grandfather, Ferdinand Hoeft, his wife Karoline, daughter Auguste, and son August came from Germany aboard the SS Oder.They landed in New York on December 1, 1880.They settled in Dearborn Michigan.From 1880 on, I have fairly solid information, but, no knowledge of there life in Germany.Finding that information will be a real challenge!!Most (virtually all) of this family tree information was collected by my second cousin Barbara Hoeft Corwin.Thanks Barb!!|
I'm also looking into my mother's side of the family.Her maiden name was Roe.What I have on them indicates a much earlier presence in North America.
