Johannes Hoffmann and Barbara -- 

Johannes Hoffmann was born about 1743 and was christened 18 September 1744 in Heckendalheim, Saarland, Germany (near Blieskastel), the son of Johann Adam Hoffmann and Magdalena Abel.

Johannes married Barbara —. Barbara was born about 1740 in Blieskastel, Saarland, Germany.

The Hoffmanns settled in Rohleder, Saratov, Russia in 1766. Johannes died before the 1798 census.

There is some speculation that Barbara’s maiden name was Jäger. This is because there is a Widow Barbara Hoffmann listed as one of those in debt to the treasury but the same widow does not show up in to the register of villagers. There is, however, a Barbara of an appropriate age to be the Widow Barbara. This is Barbara Jäger, born about 1740, wife of Peter Brumgardt (born about 1735).


Johannes and Barbara's children are:


    1. Johannes Hoffmann, born in about 1762 in Blieskastel, Saarland, Germany, married Katerina Muth.
    1. Christian Hoffmann, born in about 1765 in Blieskastel, Saarland, Germany, married Katerina Pink.
    1. Johann Peter Hoffmann, born in about 1768, of Rohleder, Saratov, Russia, moved to Graf, Saratov, Russia in 1795, married Katherina Bauer in 1794 in Graf, Saratov, Russia.
    1. Christoph Hoffmann, born in about 1770, of Rohleder, Saratov, Russia.
    1. Gertrude Hoffmann, born in about 1775, of Rohleder, Saratov, Russia, married Andreas Kraitser.
    1. Adam Hoffman, born in about 1778, of Rohleder, Saratov, Russia, married Katarina Fabel.
