Hi Sharon,
I found the Brauer Family Tree, and Katherine Hoffman actually was married four times.

In 1920 Kathrine was living in Milliken, Weld Co., Colorado.
Henry Kindsfather b. Siberia, Russia, 20, immigrated 1900, naturalized 1905, general farm laborer.
Kathrine Kindsfather, b. all the same except she was 16.

However the Brauer Family Tree says she married Jacob Kindsfather (b. 23 July 1906, Marienfeld, Russia and d. 13 March 1938, Thermopolis, Wyoming, USA) on 2 Dec 1923 but location not listed.

I don't know much about Wyoming but you can do a Google search for the local library in Thermopolis and find out if they have an obituary service.

They had children.

They divorced in 1926 and no location listed.

Then she married Michael Moraca (born 10 Sept. 1904 Bianchi, Cosenza, Calabria, Italy and died 1 Feb. 1979 Missoula, Missoula, Montana, USA) on 2 Jan 1930 Missoula, Missoula, MT. Source=Brauer Family Tree, .

In 1930 Katherine and family were living in Missoula, Missoula, MT.
Mike Moraca, b. CO, immigrated 1908, alien, 26, marr @ 26, clerk hotel.
Katherine, wife, b. Russia, 23, M1 @ 18.
Clara Moraca, stepdau, b. WY, 3 1/12th.
billy Moraca, stepson, b. WY, 1 11/12th.

I don't know when Mike and Katherine divorced.
