  • Notes 
    • J.T.Scharf, HISTORY OF WESTERN MARYLAND, p. 951 (1882), states:
      J. Henry Hoppe was born ... Feb. 17, 1801. His father was Ferdinand Frederick Hoppe, and was born in Stuttgart, Germany."

      Writing about Ferdinand's daughter Rachel and her husband, Doyle F. Wildasin, History and Genealogy of the Stonesifer Family of Maryland and Pennsylvania (Hanover, PA: 1983), p. 124, wrote:
      "Abraham Daniel [Stonesifer] ... married Rachel Hoppe - b. Dec. 29, 1805 - d. Oct. 7, 1846.... Rachel was a sister of John Henry Hoppe (known as Squire Hoppe) who was a well-known Justice of the Peace for nearly 50 years in the Westminster area. Their father was Ferdinand Frederick Hoppe from Stuttgart, Germany who, after immigrating to America @ 1800, came to what is now Carroll Co., married Catharine Snouffer, and settled in the area of Jerusalem Church in Bachman's Valley. In earlier years this church was often referred to as Bower's Church & Bachman's Church...."

      Vol. 9, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, p. 48 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds: 1993), restating records from Krider's or St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church, show various spellings of Frederick and Catharine's names. Regarding son John Henry, they state, Ibid, p. 85: "Joh. Henry, son of Friedr. and Cathr. Hoppe" was b. 17 Feb 1801, and bp. 6 Apr 1801. Recording son Jacob David, they show that "Fritrich and Catharina Hobi" had a son, Jacob David, who was b. 15 Mar 1815, and bp. 11 Jun 1815. Ibid p. 48.

      Ferdinand is buried in Krider's Lutheran Church Cemetery, Westminster, MD, in sec. B, row 12, lot 35. See vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 98 (Carroll Cnty Genealogical Soc'y, Westminster MD: 1999).

      According to "Old Krider's Cemetery Inscriptions," vol. 16, Carrolltonian, p. 8 (1996), the tombstone states:
      "In | memory of | Fardinand (sic) Frederick | Hoppe who departed | this life March 25, 1819 | Aged 50 (?) years 1 month | and 25 (or 23) days."
