Bio and Links
I've been working on family geneology for a number of years and have a huge family to track. Most of my ancestors are from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. My favorite searches take me to small, out of the way and forgotten cemeteries with old stones. I will often clean the stone and weed around the base if needed before I take a photo so that families may find their loved ones online.

Further info on Floyd Hoffman
In addition to Moses Hoffman and Pearl Hershberger being Floyd's parents, Christian "Christopher" "Christ" Hoffman and Sarah "Sallie" "Sally" Livingston were his grandparents, Moses' parents. See the 1910 U. S. Federal Census for Christopher Hoffman living in Bowne, Kent, Michigan. See also the marriage record for Moses P. Hoffman and Pearl Hershberger in Cambria County, Pennsylvania (where Pearl lived) on 27 February, 1912. Moses and Pearl moved to Michigan shortly after their marriage, and Floyd was born on 5 December, 1912 in Bowne, Kent, Michigan, where he is buried. Bowne, evidently, was once a town. Now it is Alto, in Bowne Township, Kent County, Michigan.

Wrong Parents
According to Michigan, Death Records, 1897-1920, the parents of Floyd C. Hoffman (# 26546230) were Moses Hoffman and Pearl Hershberger. The birth and death dates, as well as the location of the cemetery are the same as posted.
