My family history reasearch has moved a long quite well,in the pass four years. Fredericia Hardies, Hoffman, Mazuranic, Schwantes has been found ,with her resting place in St. John's
Evangelical Church Cemetery in Spencer WI. Anton Hoffman's marriage to Fredericia ,in February 1878 at Junction City,WI.has been found. The birth of Frank Henry, November 1878 has been found.
Second son Anton, was born July 16, 1890. I have found the birth of a daughter Anna, six weeks before her father died in July 18,1891; of heat stoke. I found this out in Anton's " Last Will and Testament", which was made out two days before he died. I have not been able to finded out what happened to Anna or where her father Anton are buried. Anton may be buried at St Killian's cemetery in Blenker ,next to his father and mother but there is no tombstone to mark his grave. I have a burial document from St Killian's on his burial but have found only one elderly priest who could read latin but he had a hard time translating it because the handwritting was so bad. Fredericia married for the second time in November 18,1893 to a Simon Mazuranic (Mazntz) Simon was the son of Mathias Mazuranic and Katherine Frank of Domosleza Bohemia. Simon and Fredericia were married at the Luthern Church in Auburndale, WI. Simon was employed as a cheese maker in Sherry. Simon disappeared somewhere about 1899. In 1900, Fredericia married a Wilhiem Schwantes in 1900 at Spencer, WI. She beared him five children : Lydia in 1901 (still born). Linda in 1902.( came Mrs. Wm Naddler ). Harry in 1904 ? Arthur in 1905 ? Another Son in 1908 ? Fredericia passed away of thyphio fever in February 30, 1909, in Spencer. My Uncle Ray Hoffman helped me find Fredericia's grave. Ray is my father (Frank) younger brother. I also have found Anton's father Joseph, mother Barbara Siedl. They are buried in the St. Killian Cemetery in Blenker.
