I believe this John Hoffman is the father of my gr gr grandfather Alfred Felix Hoffman/Huffman who came to Missouri from Culpeper Co., Va.Born 1797or1798.His mother we think was Elizabeth Hoffman.I have been in contact with Carolyn Green of Virginia and her husband was related to I think Julia Green who married the Phelix Hoffman.I can give you Carolyn Greens e-mail.She agrees with my conclusion.On Alfred Felix Huffmans gravestone here in Missouri there is no Felix.One of his sons name is Felix Alfred Huffman (Alfred Felix Huffman Jr?) per his gravestone.I would like to share more if you are interested.In Columbia, Mo. there is a family started here in Mo. by name of Thornton Hoffman (Boone Co.)???Alfred Sr. in Phelps Co., had a son named Thornton.??? How are you related?
