Johann Jost Hofheintz, later known as Joseph Hoffhance, was christened on 24 May 1743 in Bergerbersbach, Hessen Germany and died between 6 Jan 1825 (date of his will, located elsewhere on this site) and 25 Oct 1826 (date the will was received in court) in Walnut Township, Pickaway County, Ohio. Johann Jost married Susannah Woolery in 1769, Pennsylvania. Susannah was born 1749 in Hagerstown, Maryland and died 18 May 1839 in Walnut Township, Pickaway County, Ohio. She is buried in Reber Hill Cemetery, Section 10, Lot 12.
 
According to a notation in the book, "Die Nassau-Dillenburger Auswanderung", authored by Adolph Gerber, Johann Jost Hofheintz departed from the Ritterhausen, Germany emigration office and came to America in 1766 along with Johann Jost Schmidt - "Soldiers in Holland".  He first appears in the tax records of Donegal Township, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania in 1783. Then in 1785, 1786, and 1788, Johann Jost appears in the tax records of Bullskin Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, as well as on the 1790 census of the same location. By 1800, Johann Jost was situated in Saltlick Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania with a family consisting of three daughters below the age of 10 years, three sons and one daughter ages 10 to 16 years, and himself and his wife above the age of 45 years. By 1802, Johann Jost had picked up stakes and moved farther east to Madison Township, Pickaway County, Ohio, and it is here he remained until his death.
