Facts and Events
Information on Maria Volck (Folg)
- After the death of John Hoffman's first wife, Anna Catherine Hager, he married 13 July 1729, Maria Sabina Volck, daughter of John Michael Volck, deceased, of Wagenbach, Germany. She was born 19 Mar 1710 (German records) and was still living in 1782 when she was taxed for five slaves. She does not appear in records in later years, and is assumed dead by 1782/3. John Hoffman and Maria Sabina Volck had twelve children.
- John Hoffman, however, did not remain in Germantown. About the time of his marriage to Maria Sabina Volck in 1729 he moved to the Robinson River area (now Madison County) near the Lutheran people. Despite the distance, John Huffman fulfilled his obligation as executor of his father-in-law, Henry Hager, of Prince William County in 1737.
