Re: Hofackers in Pennsylvania

In Reply to: Re: Hofackers in Pennsylvania by Charles H. Hofacker of 48

Killian Hofacker fostered the branch of my
family in Pennsylvania. His Civil War pistol
is now in my younger brother Ted's possession. I've notified Charlie Hofacker
of our existence, and he is now following up
on the research we've done. My dad, Richard
Sr., was born in Palmerton, PA, son of Edwin
and Beulah Hofacker, and passed away at age
90 in 1994. The family had a Pennsylvania
Dutch (actually Pennsylvania German, since
the term is "Pennsylvanisch Deutsch") back-
ground, and both my parents spoke that
dialect. It's much less prevalent now, and
neither I nor my brother nor my two sisters
spoke it, although I am fairly fluent in
high German, having worked in Germany for
some years.
