He went to Kansas in 1899 with his parents and then on to California around 1903. It is said he and his cousin Ancil Hoffman "rode the rails" to California. There he met and married Adelina Mildred Cecchittini in Sacramento in 1906.

CHESTER M. HOFFMAN.—The name of Chester M. Hoffman, owner and proprietor of the Sacramento Rug Works, stands for a public-spirited business man; his enterprise and energy have brought him a liberal degree of success and his pride and interest are centered in Sacramento. He was born near Quincy, in Adams County, Illinois, December 29, 1882, a son of Marcus O. and Mary V. (Hughes) Hoffman. His father was a merchant in that county and later moved to Dodge City, Kans., where the father died; the mother still resides here.

The public schools of Illinois afforded Chester M. Hoffman a good education; and after completing his school work, he came to California when nineteen years of age, locating in Sacramento in 1902, where he was engaged in clerical work, which he followed for twelve years. He then established himself in the candy business at 1128 Tenth Street, as Hoffman's Candy Store, continuing until in 1916 when he established his present business, the only one of its kind in the city. By strict attention to his line, he has built up a good clientele. The Sacramento Rug Works are located at 815 W Street, where Mr. Hoffman erected his own two-story building equipped with looms and machinery for manufacturing fluff rugs.

Mr. Hoffman was married in Sacramento, October 21, 1906, to Miss Adeline Cecchettini, who was born in Sacramento, a daughter of Mose and Esther Cecchettini, early settlers of Sacramento. The father was one of the old business men here and is now retired. Fraternally, Mr. Hoffman belongs to the Eagles.
