Twelfth Generation


2302. Daniel Paul BOPFF (BOFTZ) was born about 1704 in Katzen, Dio.of Speyer, Palatinate, Germany. Persons educated in the German language and familiar with German sunames believe that the name is likely "Hopf".1610 He appeared in the census in 1724. The name was spelled "Yopf". He lived with his father-in-law, Simon Kuhn, on Bienville's land beginning at the upper line of Audubon Park. Bienville had given some of his lands to victims of an incredibly destructive 1721 hurricane. There were conditions to these land titles, however. They were to pay from six to eight livres annual ground rent for each arpent of land and, every year, two capons and two day' work "in the form of corvee" for each arpent. Each recipient of land was to repay the advances given to them by Bienville which include provisions for one year: "a cow in calf, two hogs, four chickens with a cock, and the necessary utensils and agricultural implements". After a short time in which Bienville failed to keep his promise of building a levy, many sold their land titles and moved on. The Kuhn family along with son-in-law, Daniel, were of the few who still remained on Bienville's land.1611 He appeared in the census in 1726. He was residing on "Bienville's lands above New Orleans between Simon Comme (Kuhn) and Thomas Laisne". The census enumerated his family to include Daniel, his wife (Marie Eve Kuhn) and one child. They were residing on three arpents of cleared land. Daniel appeared in the census in 1731 on the German Coast with his wife, Anna Maria Weyrich. The family owned three slaves. He, once again, appeared in the census in 1732 on the German Coast. In September 1741 on the German Coast (St. Charles Parish), Daniel signed a farming partnership agreement with Joseph Kintereck. Kintereck was to contribute three Negroes, two Negresses and two negrettes against "Bopfe's" children and his slave. In addition, Kintereck was to contribute his twelve horned cattle and he promised to add six sheep and a ram in order to match "Bopfe's" seventeen horned cattle. They partners agreed to equally divide the pigs and poultry they already owned. It can be assumed that the purpose of the agreement was to ensure that both men had enough to feed their families.1612 In August 1749 on the German Coast (St. Charles Parish), Daniel sold 1.5 arpents of land for the sum of 180 livres to a man named Portier.1613 There are records that place Daniel Bopff (Boftz) and his family at St. Charles Parish in October 1749. However, it appears that the family moved to Pointe Coupee a short time later because his wife, Anna Marie Weyrich, was buried there on 20 June 1750. He died on 15 March 1758 at the age of 54 in Baton Rouge (East Baton Rouge Parish), Louisiana, USA.1614 Daniel was buried on 15 March 1758 in Baton Rouge (East Baton Rouge Parish), Louisiana, USA.1614 Anna Maria WEYRICH and Daniel Paul BOPFF (BOFTZ)1391 were married on 16 June 1727 in (Orleans Parish), Louisiana, USA. At the time of their marriage, Daniel was the widower of Marie Eve Kuhn.1615

(Note: Daniel's 1st marriage was to Marie Eve Kuhn prior to 1724. His 2nd marriage was to Anna Maria Weyrich and 3rd marriage was to Veronique Wesele on 11 January 1751 at St. Charles Borromeo on the German Coast.)
