My grandfather Paul HOFFER was the Werner blacksmith. He and my granmother Rosa were the parents of 11 children of whom 3 died in childhood.
Paul built the first home in Werner with running water and a cement basement. Paul died in Werner in 1929. Rosa lost her home to back taxes in the early 1940's. Do you have any information on them?
My father was their son John E. HOFFER born in 1919.
When the priest, Father Goldschmidt would arrive in Werner once a month to say mass, he would stay at my granparents home. Any information on that?
All of the children went to the Werner grade school. Any information on that? Thank you.
