Do I have any cousins out there you have surfed this web site? I am last remaining child of John Hoffman of Sheboygan Falls, WI. I am interested in finding relatives of the two sisters and four brothers (names unknown) who arrived in US in 1855 with my grandfather Peter Hoffmann who would have been 14 years of age at the time. I understand one of the brothers was John who was killed in the Civil War.
