The Mother of Jeremiah Shade. according to the information I have, was
actually a Hoffman, the oldest child of George Hoffman, though her first
name is not recalled. She died at an early age after marriage to
presumably Sebastion Jr., because their son, the Hoffman wife's only child,
was Jeremiah Shade. Jeremiah's son Jackson is also listed as a Hoffman
descendant. The other children were from a different and later marriage.
Perhaps eventually the Hoffman wife's first name will turn up somewhere.
Here is the information as printed in the Hoffman family genealogy:
"The Shade Group:
oldest daughter of George Hoffman married a Mr. Shade. It is known that
she had but one child and died comparatively young. The son's name was
Jeremiah. His son, Jackson, now lives near Covington, Ohio. Nothing
further is known definitely of the family."
Here is some information to complete the immediate family of the Hoffman
daughter who married into the Shade family (Sebastian Shade Jr.,
The children of GEORGE HOFFMAN and ELIZABETH KIMMEL HOFFMAN were:
1. Unknown daughter; married into the Shade family and died at young age,
leaving one son named Jeremiah; his son, Jackson Shade, lived near
2. Martha , married Michael Myers, lived at Deersville, Ohio;
3. Philip, married Eva Marie Kuntz, lived at Millerstown, Pennsylvania;
4. John, married first Barbara Limbert, second Susannah Long, lived at
5. Katherine, married John Walters, lived at New Concord, Ohio;
6. George, married first Elizabeth Limbert, second Elizabeth Wagner;
7. Daniel, twin of Joseph;
8. Joseph, twin of Daniel; married Susannah Limbert, lived at Dayton,
I hope this well help.
