From HISTORY OF FAIRFIELD AND PERRY COUNTIES, OHIO, at page 306, compiled by A. A. Graham; published 1883:

HOFFERT, ELIAS: farmer, Rush creek township, postoffice Bremen, Ohio; born August 17, 1818, in this township, and about one mile from where he now lives; son of Solomon and Margaret (Hendricks) Hoffert.

Mr. Hoffert was raised a farmer, and has given his attention to agricultural pursuits up to this time, in which he has been successful, having accumulated an abundance for his declining years, and came into possession in 1857 of the farm that he now makes his home upon by arduous industry and economy, upon which is a good two-story frame farm dwelling that denotes the thrift and enterprise of the owner.

Mr. Hoffert was married in the year 1841 to Miss Hannah Stoneburner, daughter of Philip and Christina (Souters) Stoneburner. They are the parents of fifteen children, viz.: Philip, Emanuel, Susannah, William, Daniel, deceased, Noah, Mary, Joseph, deceased, Elizabeth, deceased, Sarah, Nancy, Matilda, deceased, Maggie, Elias J., and Ellen.

NOTE: Both the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY (at page 30) and the above quoted history fail to include one of Elias' children. Elias and his wife had a twin son who died when he was one day old. A gravestone was found for the baby at Ruff Cemetery.
