any history
My grandmother emigrated from Holland to America via Canada down through Wisconsin to Iowa, then to Michigan. Her family name was Ver Hof. I have been unable to find any record of that name nor its meaning. Can anyone help? My Great Grandfathers name was Garrit or Gerrit ver Hof.

Ver Hof is a contracted form of Van der Hoff whose origin you'll find at tinyurl.com/y8sx295r. For the contraction of van der to ver, see tinyurl.com/n34dvgu.
