Friederick Hoffer II

b. 1878 Neudorf / Odessa. S. Russia

"In 1904 Fred and Katherine Hoffer came to North Dakota, "  [they were living near Delmont, S. D.] , "and homesteaded thirteen miles west of Streeter.  Fred put his trade to good use, as he became the blacksmith for the surrounding neighbors.  He was a man with a strong constitution, and a physique to match.  His  endurance enabled him to some times put in twenty-four hour days."  "He would rise at 4:30 A.M., work for a couple of hours in his shop, ready his horses for a day in the field, and, after the horses were done in the evening he would again to to the shop and work another four or five hours."  Taken from Tappen Book 1878 to 1966.
