      Gershom A. Hoff
      Birth: May 16, 1839
      Death: Oct. 29, 1902

      Judge Gershom A. Hoff, lawyer, Flora, Ill., was born in Livingston County, N. Y.,May 16, 1839. His father, Jonathan Hoff, was born in Freehold, N. J., in 1796. He was reared to manhood in New York, and served as a soldier in the war of 1812, and in 1816 was married to Euphemia Pullis. She was born in the year 1800 in the city of New York. They emigrated to Illinois in 1843, settling that year in Washington County near Nashville, on what is known as the Dry Arm of the Looking Glass Prairie. There, in 1846, Mrs. Hoff died, leaving five children who grew to maturity, viz. : Peter, Jane (wife of J. Van Emburg, of New Jersey), Ann P. (wife of Capt. J. G. Owens, of St. Louis, Mo.), Gershom A. and Frank Hoff. From Washington County, the father removed to Clinton County in 1846, settling at Aviston, where he subsequently was married to a Widow Clark, and where, in 1853, he died, having devoted his life to the pursuit of farming.

      After the death of his mother, G. A. Hoff became a member of the family of his uncle, C. Pullis, of St. Louis, where he remained until he was fourteen years old, when he went to the city of New York. He remained there five years, in the meantime adopting the trade of brick-mason. In 1861, he went to Nevada, and until the close of 1863 was successfully engaged in the mining interest.

      He then went East, and in March, 1864, came to Clay County, Ill., and purchased a tract of land of 380 acres in Oskaloosa Township, returning the same year to New Jersey, where, in July, he married Miss Cornelia Van Ness. She was born June 14, 1 847, in New Jersey. They then moved upon the farm in this county, where they remained until 1869, when Mr. Hoff exchanged his farm for a stock of merchant goods in Xenia, where he was in business until 1873.

      He began the study of law in 1868, doing the preparatory reading under the Hon. G. V. Henry, of Louisville, Ill. He was admitted to practice in January, 1872, since which time he has been a member of the Clay County bar. He was originally a Pro-Slavery Democrat, but supported the administration during the war and until 1872, when he used his influence in support of Horace Greeley, and that year received the unanimous nomination of the Fusion ticket for the office of County Clerk.

      In 1875, he was elected to the office of State's Attorney, serving two years, and then in 1875 received a unanimous nomination for the office of County Judge at the hands of the Democratic party. The ability with which he performed the functions of this important office is evidenced by the fact that after an incumbency of five years, he was again nominated by a unanimous vote of the convention to the same office, which he is now filling to acceptance, in connection with which he still engages in the active practice of his profession.

      He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His family consists of Cora L., born April 5, 1865; Alonzo G., April 23, 1869; and Cornelia G. Hoff, July 3, 1880.
