Anna Margaretha Weigel
DeHoff died before 1796. He then married Louise Krack and had at
least ten more children.
Our line continued through George Philip and his first wife, Anna Margaretha's son, George William DeHoff who married Catharina Weissleder on September 26, 1813 in Columbiana County, OH. They had about nine children. We continue through their son, John Dayhoff. John used the spelling Dayhoff on his marriage license to Elizabeth Flowers. All of the other children used the DeHoff spelling. And for whatever the reason, John and Elizabeth's children all used the DeHoff spelling. Click here to see their Family Group Record.
We continue through their daughter, Rachel E. who married Daniel Courtney.
