Elizabeth Hoffman Garst
Birth: Feb. 28, 1779
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: May 28, 1841
Summit County
Ohio, USA

My 4th Great Grandma.

Daughter of Johannes Hoffman and his wife Catharina.

Church Records: Adams, Berks & Lancaster Counties, PA 1729-1881:
Hoffman, Elisabeth
Date: Feb 28, 1779
Event: Birth
Record ID: 277018
Relation: Born
Location: Berks Co., PA
Church: Zion's and Spiess's Reformed and Lutheran Church

Married Frederick Garst, in Mt. Joy, Lancaster Co., PA.

Known children:

1. Catharine (born 1806, died ca 1876)

2. Peter (born 1808, died 1887)

3. Jacob (born 1809, died 1850)

4. Nancy Emma (m Abraham Bender Hunsberger)

Although the stone looks like the death date is May 28, 1846 I have been told that it actually reads 1841.

June 3, 2016 note from Mary MacCracken, "The cemetery stone shows 1841 (and that would mean she was 62 when she died). Soon after Elizabeth (and Fred Gerst) moved to Inland/Greensburg(h), Summit County, Ohio, her mother Catharine came to live with them. Abram wrote that 'mother Hoffman died soon after she came to Ohio' -- buried Klinefelter Cemetery on the Dillman farm, Greensburg, Summit Co., OH."

Many thanks for stone photos, Pugluv, who first listed and graciously transferred memorial.
