Birth

11 MAR 1749
Tulpehocken, Berks, Pennsylvania, United States[6][7][8]

John Nicholas Hoffman, a member of the Hoffman family reknowned for the number of its men who served in the Revolutionary War, was born in Tulpehocken Twp., Berks County. His father, at minimum, had immigrated from Germany through the port of Rotterdam, Holland, and arrived in Philadelphia in 1739. John Nicholas Hoffman lived near Short Mountain, Lykens Valley, PA. He owned a large tract of land and deeded the land for the building of Hoffman's (St. Peter's) Church. During the Revolution, John Nicholas participated in the battles of Long Island, Brandywine, and Germantown. He was elevated to the rank of Lt. during the Battle of Long Island. His name is listed on a historical cemetery marker erected by the state of Pennsylvania, which is located at the front entrance of the cemetery. His specific gravesite in this cemetery has not yet been identified due to the age and deterioration of the oldest stones, and the fact that many are written in German script.
