Daughter of Adam Silas and Catherine (Eckert) Hoffman.

Married John Fritz about 1834. They had 14 children between 1835 and 1858 (Harriet, Amanda, Thomas, Michael, Charles, Angeline, John, William, Catherine, Maria, George, Tamar, Silas and Henry). As of Apr 2016, Maria and Henry remain missing. Located son Henry in Camden, NJ, in Jul 1913, per his sister Amanda's obituary. Daughter Maria was not listed in the Jul 1913 obituary of Amanda.

She died in Sugarloaf, Columbia Co, PA: per research I have from Ellsworth Shoup. NOTE: FindAGrave does not have Sugarloaf posted anywhere in Pennsylvania. I located Sugarloaf on Wikipedia on 25 Sep 2012. It is located in Columbia Co, PA.

Per a newspaper article pubished 1 Feb 1881, she died 12 Jan 1881; making her marker incorrect
