Theodore Hoffmann Gravesite

Jim did some preliminary genealogical research on grandpa Hoffmann starting with great grandfather, Ludwig (1846-1909). Below are photos of the Hoffmann tombstone located in All Faiths Lutheran Cemetery, Queens, NY, and scan of the important dates he recorded in his 1952 little red reminder book. Photo of tombstone taken by cousin Lud who recalled that at Grandfather Theodore's funeral (when he was age nine); Ludwig, Dorothea, Theodore Donald and Mathilde had separate tombstones crowded into a small space, but very neat and well maintained in the old section. The new tombstone containing all five is now in the pauper section either because there was no room for a fifth stone in the old section and all were reinterred or the cemetery decided to reinterred because the family did not pay for perpetual care.
