Subject: [Dayhoff] Answers to Cecil Co, MD Dehoff questions

I have some answers for Alicia but not all of them. Perhaps someone
else on the list may have another part of the puzzle.

1.Hendrick of Cecil Co, MD mentions in his will, son John and daughters
Mary, Caterina and Elizabeth. John seems to be the John DeHuff of
Lancaster who married Catherine Brecht.

2.Jeff Gibson has put together a list of John DeHuffs descendants.
Perhaps he would post it again to the list for the first 4 generations
only. There is only one Daniel amongst the descendants and I believe he
died near Harrisburg.

3.Father John Dehoff, minister of the gospel is one of the sons of John
George and Elisabeth Kisl DeHoff of York Co, PA. I believe John's son,
Jacob and also a grandson, Moses Deahofe were also itinerant preachers.
Perhaps it will help if those of you looking for help with the
Miscellaneous Maryland DeHoffs post some family groups to the list - 3
or 4 generations might be all that is needed to make a match.
