John Levi Hoffecker Jr.

John Levi Hoffecker, son of John Levi and Rachel (Hazzard) Hoffecker, was born July 19, 1870, in East Vincent township, where he received his educa- tion in the public schools. On reaching manhood he engaged in business as a butcher, succeeding to the proprietorship of the establishment conducted by his father. His prosperity in this calling was such that after fourteen years he was enabled to retire from business, and to purchase the farm on which he has since resided. In 1896 he came into possession of this property, which consists of fifty-six acres of valuable land. The farm is managed in such a manner as to yield the best possible results, and during the threshing season the owner further displays his enterprise by conducting a thriving business with a traction engine. Mr. Hoffecker has been placed by the votes of his neighbors in the offices of town clerk, auditor and inspector and has discharged the duties of these positions in a manner entirely satisfactory to all concerned. The men and measures advocated by the Republican party find in him a stanch supporter. He is a member of Spring City Lodge, No. 557, Free and Accepted Masons, and also belongs to Phoenix Chapter, No. 198, Royal Arch Masons and Jerusalem Commandery, No. 15, Knights Templar. He holds the rank of past master in the Blue Lodge. He is a member of the German Reformed church.
Mr. Hoffecker married Adella, daughter of Nathan and Edith (Brownback) Yeager, the former a farmer of East Coventry township. Mr. and Mrs. Hoffecker are the parents of a son and a daughter: Nathan A. and Annie E. Hoffecker."
