John Albertini: Wehofer
My wife is a great, great granddaughter of Josef & Elizabeth (Lovranich?) Wehofer who we think were married in Odenburg (Sopron) Hungary. They had a large family (12 children we think - Anna, Antone, Elizabeth, Franz, Johan, Josef, Karl, Leopold, Maria, Paule, Rudolf & ?). Maria, my wife's great grandmother, was born in 1888, don't know about the others except Rudolf was the youngest. We have recently also made contact with descendants of Rudolf.

We know very little of the children except that while Maria married in 1909 in Vienna (Wien - Parish Margarethen, St. Florian) & came to New York, NY, USA shortly after World War I and Rudolf,s daughter, Olga, came to New York, NY USA (probably with her parents as she was only 16 years old then) in 1950 most others remained in Hungary/Austria at least until after World War II. We think there is a relative there named Arnold Wehofer and an Internet telephone book search for Austria turned up many Wehofers (about 100).

Our info on Maria's & Rudolf's families are very complete except that a son of Rudolf's, Frenec (Frank), went missing during WWII and was never heard from again.

We would be pleased if you can offer any assistance in our research of the Wehofer family. Does any of the above fit into your family history? Do you know other Wehofers who are or are not related to you & / or us?

If you are related to us I can supply what information I have if you would care to have it.

Thank you for your patience & assistance.

Zlatica : Re: Wehofer
Not related. Just want to help out.

The town of Sopron, Hungary is listing 4 WEHOFERs, LOVRANICS and LOVRANITSs. Possible they are distant relatives.

11 Wehofers passed thru Ellis Island which I am sure you have included in your search.

Rubies: Re: Wehofer
My mother's mother's mother died when my grandmother was so young that she couldn't remember much signifigant about her. My grandmother recently died and I've found out on the death certificate that my great grandmother's name is Marie Wehofer. I've tried looking at familysearch.org and haven't found anything and I have nothing substantial to prove that any of the Maria Wehofers on ellisisland.org are her. She was apparently German and married to a German named Christ Mueller (whether or not before moving to the US, I don't know). From what my grandmother told me when she was alive, she died around 1914 in Ohio (probably Paulding county).

Little bits of information about her have been off before I got the name on the death certificate so maybe there are some things wrong with the information I have. Maybe this is your Maria Mueller. Or maybe you've stumbled upon her in your own research. Any matches between the information would help greatly.

rubies: Re: Wehofer
Some corrections. I posted that my Marie Wehofer died approximately 1914 when I meant to type 1924. Also, her husband Christopher (I've seen records with both Christ and Christopher) Mueller was not German but in fact listed himself has Hungarian on the 1930 US Census. I'm afraid I have no information on where in Hungary he came from. I don't think the Maria you speak of could be mine, but thank you for the help and please inform me if you find anything else related to my search.

Also, Christ Mueller was born approximately 1888, if that helps.

rubies: Re: Wehofer
I found another Marie Wehofer at ellisisland.org. It was spelled Vehofer in her case. She arrived in 1905 at the age of 16 and was going to stay with her brother Franz? (spelling was little hard to decipher) in Pittsburgh. In 1910, it appears she had a younger brother (age 19) come to stay with her through Ellis Island as well. On her record it lists her last residence as Rumpot, Hungary and his as Rempot. I've tried some internet searches and am having no luck finding anything on either of those town names.
