Anna Hoffmann was born October 2, 1851 and was baptised the same day in Kout na Šumavě, Domažlice, Plzeň, West Bohemia, Czechia.[1] She was the daughter of Mathaus Hoffmann and Anna ?. Her death certificate gives different information, though her birth record is far easier to trust on her birth than her death record.[2][3]

In 1869 she was living with her mother, her older sister Katerina, her younger brother Josef, and her younger sister Marie in Kout na Šumavě.[4]

She married her husband Josef Drozda on May 5, 1873 in Kout na Šumavě.[5] Together they had the following children:

  1. Cecilia Drozda
  2. Barbara Drozda
  3. Christina Virginia Drozda

She immigrated to the US on May 18, 1874 with her husband, mother-in-law, daughter Cicilia, and Maria via the ship Weser.[6]

In the 1920 census she was listed as an alien, but in the 1930 census, she was listed as a naturalized citizen, meaning her naturalization took place between 1920 and 1930.

Anna Hoffmann passed away December 28, 1936 at eleven in the morning primarily from bronchopneumonia and coronary occlusion, secondarily from emphysema myocarditis.[3] She was buried at Evergreens Cemetery on December 31, 1936.[3]

  • Father?
    • Death: Kdyne 29, img 369, page 399 ... 50 yrs of age? In 1867?... so born 1827? Wife was 1817, may be wrong.
