from Judy Hufford-Diederich
Going back to Wyandot Co., Ohio, Christopher Hufford
& Cathrine Corfman. I think Coonrad Hufford was a
son. My parents always told me Christopher gave the land
to the Mt. Zion Church for the cemetery; it's west of
Sycamore, Ohio, and that they are buried there. Many
other HUFFORDs are buried there too. My father was Merle
Hufford, son of Harley and Corabelle. Coonrad was father
to Harley, Harry, Homer, and I don't know if there were
any more children.
Yes, Conrod (or
Coonrad) was a son: Conrod, son of Christofer, son of
Casper, son of Christian born
1716 in Schwaigern, Germany.
The cemetery is now
known as Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. It's in Tymochtee
Township, on the southeast corner of State Road 103
and County Road 37, between Tymochee and Sycamore. CLICK HERE for a photo of his gravestone.

Alice, we communicated a long time ago. I am descended
from Rebecca Hufford and John Burrier.
Just visited your site again and found lots of new
relatives. Thank you!
(1778-1848) was a daughter of Christian (b.
1716) and his second wife. Rebecca married John
BURRIER on April 19, 1803, in Frederick Co., MD. The
couple moved to Fayette Co., Kentucky. CLICK HERE for a photo of her gravestone.

I'm related to Hukills, but can't find
the connection to your family yet. My Hukill family
"starts" with Richard C. Hukill II who was born
in 1765 in Cecil Co, MD. Most of this family went to
Fayette Co, Ohio, and later, to Illinois. His wife was
Letitia Parr and the story goes that they met inside a
fort in MD while seeking protection from Indian attacks.
I'm really happy to have found your website. Thanks, it's
great. Just great. Judi Goodwin
The farthest back
HUKILL I have on this web site is the father of Henry Brevard Hukill who was a Circuit Court judge of Ripley
Co., IN. His father was Henry Hukill who was born
about 1768 and who died before 24 Jul 1798, and who
was married to Elizabeth FOSTER. The father of Henry
Hukill b. abt 1768 was Richard Hukill, Sr., b. 1733
Cecil Co., MD. That man's father was Richard Hukill
b. 1699 Cecil Co., MD. That man's father was Daniel
Hukill II, b. 1674, in MD, with records found in St.
Stephen's Anglican Parish, Cecil Co., MD. That man's
father was the immigrant: Daniel Hukill b. abt 1640
in England. He was transported to Dorchester Co., MD,
in 1666 by John Felton and in Dorchester Co., MD, by

Hi. I have visited here several times and left messages.
People have replied, and I tried to answer but did not
always get the info out that some wanted. A few years ago
my mother had almost completed a genealogy that dated
back to the late 1400s when she passed away. My oldest
son is starting to take over on some of the work she did,
and he has posted it at http://www.hufford.org. If you
excuse the rantings of a college student still trying to
find himself, you will find the information somewhere on
his site. It lists a lot of the Huffords that ended up in
the Toledo-Perrysburg, Ohio, area, and the information
was up to date through about 1995. I also see that cousin
Douglas from Columbus has been here since I last was
here. Hey, cousin, say "Hi" to your dad Doug
and Mom Barb for me. I last saw them about a year ago up
here in Oregon, Ohio.
hufford.org site has gone dead. If anyone knows where
(or if) that information has migrated on the
internet, please let me know.

Yes, that Earl family [the one with Lizzie Borden]. No
murders in recent history! Putting together our genealogy
and this was somewhat helpful. Could you reveal the
sources of the one listed on your web-page? Thanks!
So many web pages, so
many sources, so many itty-bitty bits of information
pieced together to give the whole. You'd have to tell
me exactly which itty-bitty piece of info you are
I spent from 1986 until 1997 researching before I
began writing. I spent hours, days, weeks, months in
court houses, specialty libraries, archives,
cemeteries, and attics reading from microfilm,
microfiche, aged paper, cemetery headstones, old
Bibles, old letters, books by others; learning how to
read some basic words in German, Dutch, French;
learning old handwriting; decifering poor
handwriting; learning how to make faded print
visible. I would discover new information and decide
instantly to make an onsite visit to the original
records in New York, Indiana, wherever.
I was an at-home mom. It allowed me amazing freedom,
and my kids learned to be quiet while sitting beside
me in a library, and they learned how to line up a
row of library chairs to form a bed to sleep on after
driving all night with Mom, and they learned how to
play in cemeteries.
The writing began on Veteran's Day 1997 when I wrote
two pieces, one for each of two ancestors who served
in the Union Army during the Civil War: George Hooker and Tom Doyle/Frank Reed. I put them online, linked them, and was
thrilled with my tiny, itty-bitty contribution to the
information highway. Since then, no one's been able
to shut me up, and my web site just keeps growing.
So, which itty-bitty piece of info are you interested

Trying to find a link to Ada Mariah Payne
who married Robert Cox on Oct 28, 1875. Robert Cox was my
Grandmother's father. Also curious that the Songer
Cemetery in Vermilion Co., IL, has the same name as I do.
Your Ada was the
daughter of John Davis Payne (1836-1878) and wife
Mary Ann McCrachen (b. abt 1841). The couple married
4-Jun-1857 in Livingston Co., IL. John Davis Payne
was the son of Squire Lee Payne (1811-1884) and his
1st wife, Charity Reynolds (1812-1850). Squire Lee
Payne was the son of John Payne, Sr., and wife Hannah Earle.

Very interesting! My father-in-law had always talked
about Jacob Greib; your
research verifies his stories. I didn't know we were
related to the Studebaker family; that is quite the honor
in South Bend, Indiana!
It is not my research,
and the connection is remote. ... Let us begin with
Stephen ULRICH, born about 1680. He had six known
children: Stephen b. abt 1710, George b. abt 1724 ,
Daniel b. abt 1726 , Elizabeth b. abt 1724 , John b.
abt 1728, and Susanna. (Yes, the dates look odd with
a span of 14 years between children.) ... Stephen the
Jr. married Elizabeth Cripe (sister of Jacob Cripe
the immigrant). Stephen the Jr. and his wife had a
son Samuel (m. Mary Brumbaugh). Samuel and his wife
had among their daughters Mary b. 1783 (who m. David
Studebaker b. abt 1780) and Hannah b. 1789 (who m.
John Studebaker b. 1787). ... Mary Ulery b. 1783
(name had mutated by then) and her husband David
Studebaker had a son Samuel Studebaker b. 1814;
Samuel m. Mary Metzger who was herself an
Ulrich/Cripe descendant. ... That Samuel and Mary had
definite connections to Carroll Co., IN, since they
had a daughter who died and was buried there. ...
Now, back to John Studebaker b. 1787 & David
Studebaker b. abt 1780 who were brothers; they had at
least one other brother, the Rev. Jacob Studebaker.
Those three were the children of Jacob Studebaker who
was the son of the immigrant Peter Studebaker, b.
1695, Solingen, Germany. ... Peter Studebaker is the
patriarch of the family that produced the 19th
century brothers who founded the wagon making
business that became the Studebaker car making
business. ... Whether the Studebaker brothers who
founded the Studebaker business had among their
ancestors any descendants of Stephen Ulrich (the
ultimate progenator of all the Cripes since Stephen's
daughter Elizabeth married Jacob Greib/Cripe and
Stephen's son Stephen married Jacob Greib's sister
Elizabeth) I could not tell you! ... These people
were Brethren, German Baptist. The Studebaker
brothers of fame had roots in Carroll Co., IN. These
folks were WELL intermarried, and sorting their lines
is challenging. ... In short, don't expect any
invites to Thanksgiving dinner from the folks with
the kind of money that produced the Studebaker
mansion in South Bend, IN! The familial connection is

Just started researching my great grandmother's family,
the Bullas. My great grandmother was Nancy E. Bulla b.
1882 where unknown d. 1966 in Decatur, Illinois. Her
father was William Wilson Bulla from Carroll Co,
Indiana. Nancy's grandfather is Uriah K. Bulla.
I see he is buried @ Beard Cemetery in Owasco, Indiana. Thank
you. Ron Wiandt, Jr.
Uriah K. BULLA's wife
(Jemima, d. 6-Dec-1857, age 37 years 11 months) was
buried with William NICE and his wife Lydia (Weaver)
on one side, and Erastus Nice's first wife, Priscilla
(SHOEMAKER), on the other side. These are not my
people, but Uriah Bulla's wife Jemima was a daughter
of William NICE and Lydia WEAVER. I know that land,
that cemetery, and that community; there's no other
reason she'd have been buried where she was. ... The
information is at the Beard Cemetery
page, but you've got to read both the list of burials
as listed alphabetically, and the list of burials
listed by "body placement," and being
familiar with these old families helps also. ... My
connection to these people is that Wm. Nice and wife
Lydia had a son William Nice who on 13-Oct-1842 in
Carroll Co., IN, married Sarah BEARD, b. 12-Jan-1825
in Darke Co., Ohio. Sarah Beard was a daughter of John Beard and Sophia More. Sarah Beard (Mrs. Wm. Nice) died
10-Apr-1912 in Miami Co., Indiana, and was buried
there in Chili Cemetery.

Your web site has been most interesting! I certainly did
not intend to spend all these hours today on the
internet. After going through all of your genealogy (all
because you are related to Samuel Copeland!) it just got
better and better! I am really interested in the reasons women don't have to change their names -- just because they got married! (I tried to
convince my daughters they should keep their surname of
Copeland!) But the icing on the cake was when I found
your journal while attending law school! All I can say--you are one hell of a lady!
(And, I'm a minister's wife . . .) Being in genealogy, I
am appalled how women's maiden names are forgotten and
not easily traced. I've enjoyed the biographies of women
you wrote. In fact, I've enjoyed the entire website so
far -- and am anxious to read it in its entirety. My
husband, Jim, and I live in White County, IN, between
Monticello and Monon, on Lake Shafer. He is a retired

WONDERFUL site! I'm just starting to get things together
so I don't know how we connect, but among others I have Cripe,
Plank (from Blankenship, I'm told, yet
to be confirmed), Ullery, Studebaker,
Mast, Miller, Keim, Hochstetler,
Hertzler, and Brumbaugh. The main claim to fame right now
is I'm a direct decendant of the first (and probably the
second too) Amish Bishop in North America: Jacob
Hertzler. I think one of your Ullerys was a
brother or sister (but I'm not sure it wasn't in-law). I
still have trouble picturing it all, but my girlfriend is
good at it. Anyway, I hope to be back and discover how we
connect and if I connect to the Todds or Bordens. I'm
looking for sites for Amish, Mennonite, and Brethern
information and hope to hear from others with similar
connections. Elkhart County, IN, has quite a bit on the
web. That's where I grew up and all my relatives are. The
Stutsman cemetery (previously owned by my Uncle) has just
been turned over to the county with the understanding
that the county will build an access road and do some
basic maintenance on it, but we fear it will only open up
more opportunities for vandals. Sorry to ramble; it's

the immigrant Peter BARTH, from

I come back again and again, Alice; your site just has so
much to offer a new genealogist. I e-mailed you a short
time ago. (I'm the one who gets the stuff mixed up.) How
do you keep so organized? I am related to the Borden
family by John Borden and Sarah Earle's
daughter Elizabeth who married William Wordell
(Wodell). So somewhere, Alice, I think that we are
related. I thank you for the site. I love finding stories
about my family. They make them live for me.
The ancestors we share
are Ralph EARLE (1606-1678) and Joan SAVAGE (1609-aft
1699). I descend from their son Ralph's son William.
You descend from their son William's daughter Mary's
son John BORDEN who married Sarah Earle. Now, the
interesting thing is that, so far as I know, no one
has successfully placed Sarah Earle on that Earle
tree. The assumption is that she belongs on it, but
no one has found her parents.

Looking for information on the family of Nicholas
Browne, b. abt 1525 of Snelston, Derbyshire,
Mr. Juchau, the
chances are good that you're hunting for Nicholas
BROWNE who was buried 15 Jan 1587. His wife Eleanor
SHIRLEY was born about 1525, and was buried 28 Apr
1595 Snelston, Co. Derby, England. Eleanor's line
ultimately goes back to William the Lion, King of
Scotland (born 1143, died 4 Dec 1214) and a mistress
who was a daughter of Richard Avenal. William was a
grandson of Scotland's King David I. David I was the
son of Malcolm III and the grandson of Duncan who was
murdered by Macbeth. Malcolm III later killed Macbeth
in battle. Macbeth was a first cousin of Duncan. This
line wanders thru Edmund II, the "Ironside
King" of old England; Henry II, King of Norway;
Charles IV, King of the Franks; Alfred the Great;
Charles the Bald, and Louis the Pious on it's way
back to Charlemagne and Hildegard. The information is

I wish I could make the connection. My great-grandfather
was James William C(r)umbley born 1858 died 1928; on his
death certificate it lists his father as William
"Bill" Crumbley and his mother as Jane Hufford;
they were of Pike Co., MO. I had another gentleman e-mail
me, and he thought that Jane could possibly be the
daughter of John Hufford born abt 1790 son of Daniel (son
of Christian). Jane was supposed to have died young,
possibly at childbirth of William? If you have anything
you could share with me, it will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. Jerry
Jerry likely is
talking about James W. Cumbley who married Rosa B.
ROBERTSON. They married in 1890:
Ralls County, Missouri: marriage license No. 3639:
James W. Cumbley of New London, Ralls Co., Missouri,
over the age of twenty-one year, and Rosa B.
Robertson of New London, Ralls Co., Missouri, under
the age of eighteen years. Rosa's guardian, Ezemiel
F. McSutyee, was present and gave consent.
License dated the 3rd of May, 1890, and
was signed by James W. Lear, Recorder.
James Lear also signed as Justice of the Peace who
performed the ceremony, also on the 3rd of
May, and James Lear signed again on the 5th
of May as the County Recorder who recorded that the
marriage had taken place.
The couple show on the 1900 U.S. Census in Randolph
Co., Arkansas, with James born July 1858 in Missouri
and Rosa born Sep. 1875 in Illinois; married 10
years; James was a stove maker. By 1910, they're in
Tulsa Co., Oklahoma. James consistly reports his
mother as born in Indiana.
Wish I could help more, but this time all I can do is
preserve the information for a future genealogist.

Devon, is about 15 miles from where I live. The Burdens
have lived in this county for centuries. Many of my
ancestors are alleged to have emigrated to the east coast
of the USA.

I believe we may be connected to this family although I
do not have all the verification on my side as yet. My
great-grandfather was Charles Gilbert Hufford
from Indiana. My grandmother tells it like this:
It was just amazing that young Charles came to Texas. He
had been visiting three maiden Aunts who lived on Grant
Place in Chicago, IL, with his sister Florence
when he became bored. He ended up in Texas. In or near
Denton Co./Dallas Co. is the small town of Little Elm
where he met and married my great-grand mother Katie
Izora Shaw. They were married 20 March 1904. My
grandfather Eugene was born 24 December 1904. About mid
1905 Katie went to Ft. Worth to buy clothes for the
growing baby. When she returned to the farm the next day,
it was to find Charles very ill. He had been stringing
barb wire when it came back on him. Katie sent for the
Doctor. The next day Charles died. They were both still
in their teens. I don't know if it was months or a year
later that Katie went to Chicago to visit her
sister-in-law and the three maiden Aunts. She stayed for
a few months then returned to Texas where she re-married.
My grandparents were called when Annie (the maiden aunt)
passed away. My grandmother thinks it was in Lebenon,
Warren Co., Ohio, where there was a little cabin back in
the woods that had belonged to the family. It was sold to
settle all debts before my grandparents arrived. Annie
had left a trunk of old clothes, letters, etc., which
have been lost since 1971, so our info went with it. My
grandfather had a degree in Architecture from A&M.
It's 2011, and my
answer to this question has changed since I first
answered it. Kathryn is hunting for a brother/sister
combo of Charles and Florence, with an Indiana
connection, born in mid-1880s into a family where the
"Charles" got lost to the family. I am
unable to place him. I find Charles' widow remarried
by 1920 when she is listed on the census in Denton
County, Texas, with her 2nd husband, Will M.
CARTWRIGHT. Next step would be to check for a death
certificate for Charles Gilbert Hufford who died in
about 1905 in Texas, probably in Denton County.
Kathryn mentions a connection to Warren Co, Ohio. The
Warren County Huffords
whom I have found are not
connected to the Huffords whom I research.

Alice, I hadn't been able to get beyond my ancestors
Arthur Knowles & Abigail Hamlin. I had his mother as Innocent
Phillips (not Butts as was her maiden
name). I was so happy to find your site and discover a
wealth of information on that side of the family. I
really appreciated all the research you had done on Alice
Lake and her sad ending. It makes some of my
Puritan heritage more alive, and now I wish I had paid
more attention when I read The Crucible in high
school. It is not too late to pass on the information to
my kids (age 13 and 15), which I have already! Hopefully,
it will make history "come alive" for them
knowing their 10 x greatgrandmother, Alice Lake, met such
a fate. I also thank you for the information on Thomas
Cornell and Lizzie Borden who are also
some type of relations to me. I am related through Thomas
Cornell/Rebecca Briggs and their son John
Cornell who married Mary Russell. Nancy B. Thorne

I am a descendant of:
1) Stephen Ulrich, Sr. (whose daughter
Elizabeth married Jacob Cripe);
2) Daniel Ulrich (Daniel married Christina (Holsinger?);
3) John Ulrich & Christina Brumbaugh;
4) Jacob Ulrich and Mary Hoover;
5) John Ulrich and Lydia Brewer;
6) Charles E. Ulrich and Margaret Rebecca Eberhart;
7) Everett C. Ulrich and Helen Coley.
I have been compiling an Ulrich family history, primarily
covering my descendants, but have included many
collateral families, concentrating primarily on the
families from an historical perspective, ie, how and
where they lived, failed, prospered, successes, failures,
accomplishments, etc. I have also included many pictures
including as many old ones as possible. I started it as a
chronicle of my immediate family for benefit of my
children, grandchildren, and future generations, but my
interest grew, and I started delving further into the
family background and discovered some wonderful
ancestors, most of the Brethren faith. I am willing to
share with any seriously interested. It presently
consists of almost 200 pages, most of it historical data.
It presently costs me at least $10 to reproduce at
Kinko's and the cost of mailing so I must charge that
amount to cover my expenses. I use Family Tree Maker and
can send a disc at no charge for those interested. Joe
For any who might
wonder, Mr. Joe Ulrich is for real! He learned a
while back that my father had a stroke, and Mr.
Ulrich has been sending cards to his distant Ulrich
cousin, my father, since then. Dad's
"thing" was always stamps, not genealogy,
so Dad's a little fuzzy on how the Ulrichs connect. I
say, "You know your great-grandma was born a
Hufford. Well, HER mom was born a Cripe, and the
Cripes descend from the Ulrichs." And Dad says,
"Uh-huh," and gives me one of those looks.

I got interested in the Huffords thru
some Mowery relation. My g.g.grandfather's sister married
a Hufford, but the name escapes me right now. She was
Catherine Mowery, and he was a minister.
Her brother was John Mowery(Mowry) married to Lucinda
Redd, and he died in the Sultana Tragedy at the end of
the Civil War. She later married Andrew Blosser,
and they had twins: Lucy and Andrew. Her sons from her
marriage to John Mowery came west to Iowa, and I think
several of the Huffords did also as I find several at the
cemeteries in Tama County.
sister was Catherine Mowery b. 1849. In 1869, she
married the Rev. Caleb Hunsaker b. 1848. He was a
twin; he was a son of the Rev. John Hunsaker and
Catherine Hufford b. 1814. She was the dau. of
Solomon Hufford, Sr., b. 1786, who was the son of Casper Hufford b. 1762, who was the son of Christian
Hoffarth b. 1716. There also were intermarriages
among the Blossers and the Huffords.

Am looking for information on Benjamin Franklin Hufford
(son of Samuel Hufford) (son of Abraham Hufford Jr.).
Need information on both of his wives. Thank-you
Hufford, b. 1879, Clinton Co., Indiana; son of Samuel
b. 1855; son of Abraham Jr. b. 1821; son of Abraham
Sr. b. 1788; son of Casper b. 1762; son of Christian
b. 1716 in Schwaigern, Germany.
First wife: Otta May THOMSON (b. 1883, Carroll Co.,
IN). They married April 11, 1899, Clinton Co.,
Indiana; he married as "Frank."
He appears on the 1900 census in Carroll Co., IN, as
"Frank." He's on page 75
of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY as "Benjamin
Franklin Hufford, listed with his wife Otto May and
children: Mary Lavina, Jesse Samuel, Roy Lee, Agnes,
Iona, and Eva Eliza. Note that there is an error in
that listing. From what I can determine, there was a
daughter named "Agnes Iona," not one
daughter named "Agnes and another named
"Iona." According to the HUFFORD book, the
family lived in Colburn, Tippecanoe Co., Indiana, on
Route 19. There is a photograph of Benjamin F. on
that page, with his parents and his sister Elizabeth.
By 1910, Benjamin Franklin's children Roy and Agnes
are living with their Hufford grandparents in
Tippecanoe Co., Indiana. By 1920, Eva is also with
Benjamin Franklin (B.F.) is with his second wife on
the 1910 census in Tippecanoe Co., Indiana. She is
listed as "Melzora." Her full name was
Lillian Melzora GOLDEN. She was the widow of Jacob
DAVIS when she married Benjamin Franklin. In the
household are a mix of children in a "yours,
mine, ours" kind of situation, and the census
taker got the last names and the relationships wrong
on some of those children. Here are the children who
were in that 1910 household:
- Harry Davis (correctly named; from Melzora's
- Lucy Davis (correctly named; from Melzora's
- Jessie Hufford (correctly named, from
Benjamin's 1st marriage)
- Bessie Davis (incorrectly named Hufford; from
Melzora's 1st marriage)
- Emma Davis (incorrectly named Hufford; from
Melzora's 1st marriage)
- Eva Hufford (correctly named, from Benjamin's
- Joseph Hufford (correctly named, child of
Benjamin & Melzora)
Harry Davis (b. abt 1896) and Lucy
Davis (b. abt 1898) show on the 1900 census in
Burnettsville, White Co., Indiana. Their father was
Jacob Davis. Their mother (Lillian Melzora) is listed
Benjamin Franklin and his first wife (Otta) divorced
and each remarried. Their divorce became final on
February 2, 1909. On February 6, 1909, in Tippecanoe
County, Indiana, each married again. Benjamin
Franklin ("Frank") married Lillian Melzora
GOLDEN, the widow DAVIS. Otta married Abraham
Franklin "Jim" HUFFORD, Frank's first
cousin. It was a double wedding, with Frank serving
as the witness for Jim while Jim married Frank's
former wife, and with Jim serving as the witness for
Frank as he married again. There must have been some
major gossip in that neck of the woods back then.
First, there was the marriage
between Benjamin and Otta, on 11-Apr-1899, when Otta
was about 16 years old and Benjamin was almost 20.
That marriage quickly produced five children: Mary
Lavina, Jesse Samuel, Roy Lee, Agnes Iona, and Eva
Marie. (Note, however, that the HUFFORD book
incorrectly lists Agnes Iona as two individuals.)
That first marriage ended, and both Benjamin and Otta
- Benjamin 2ndly married Lillian
Melzora GOLDEN (b. 25-Sep-1875, IN, the widow
of Jacob DAVIS).
- Otta 2ndly married Abraham
Franklin "Jim" HUFFORD (b.
15-Feb-1885, IN, son of David HUFFORD and
Sarah E. FELTHOFF).
Benjamin and Abraham were first
cousins; their fathers were brothers. And, it is
likely (but not yet proven) that their mothers also
were related, perhaps cousins: Benjamin's mother was
Elizabeth FELTHOFF, b. 24-Oct-1857; Abraham's mother
was Sarah Elizabeth FELTHOFF, b. Feb 1858, IN.
Benjamin's second wife, Lillian, had
herself been previously married to Jacob DAVIS (b.
April 1858, IN; d. 1907). With Mr. Davis, Lillian had
five children: Harry, Lucy M., Grace M., Betty
"Bessie" Leona, and Emma R..
With Lillian, Benjamin had four more children: Joseph
F. (b. 26-Jan-1910), Cecil O. (b. 25-Feb-1912), Alice
Elizabeth (b. 21-Oct-1913), and Virgil Willard. All
four of those HUFFORD children were born in Indiana.
Sorting out the children is something of a mess
because of the 1910 census for the household of
Benjamin and Lillian. The wrong last names were
listed for some of the DAVIS children. Here's a list
of the children in the household, by correct name and
with notations to show which ones the census taker
- Harry Davis (correctly named)
- Lucy Davis (correctly named)
- Jessie Hufford (correctly named, from
Benjamin's 1st marriage)
- Bessie Davis (incorrectly named Hufford)
- Emma Davis (incorrectly named Hufford)
- Eva Hufford (correctly named, from Benjamin's
- Joseph Hufford (correctly named, child of
Benjamin & Melzora)
Benjamin and Otta's son Jesse died
in March 1918 in Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co., Indiana.
He was about 17 years old and died of appendicitis.
Benjamin died by his own hand on 16-Jun-1921, in
Indiana, probably in Tippecanoe Co.
As Benjamin's widow, Lillian married a third time, to
Frank RINIER, on 9-Nov-1925, in Tippecanoe Co.,
Indiana. She had no children by her third husband.
Lillian died in March 1946. Her burial site in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Cass County,
Indiana, is marked with a gravestone that says
"Lillian Hufford, mother."
Otta and her second husband, Abraham Hufford,
had four children: Esther Leona (b. 28-Feb-1910, m.
Alvie ALLEN), Roscoe David (b. 3-Feb-1912), Chester
Abraham. (b. 6-Aug-1914), and Sarah Mae (b.
6-Nov-1921; 1st m. Carl SUMMERS; 2nd m. Charles
COOK). Otta and Abraham were buried at Davis
Cemetery, Cass County, IN, under a shared
headstone, near their sons
Roscoe and Chester.

originates from the village of BARAHAM in Cambridgeshire,
No, but thank you for
the question. It allows me to point out that the
surname HUFFORD has more than one origin. My research
has me saying that the Hufford line that is part of
this web site has no relationship to a Hufford line
that originated in the UK. When my Hufford line came
to America, the name was spelled "Hoffart."
The German pronounciation had that "t"
sounding like a cross between a "t" and a
"d." The name mutated into several forms;
the most common one (or the one that produced the
most name-carrying descendants) was
"Hufford." Best wishes!

of our family to leave the German Baptist Church, as did
his two brothers Oris Eldon Cripe and Herman S. Cripe.
Dad and Herman both had the initial "S" for a
middle name only because the Army insisted that they had
to have middle names, according to family lore. The
"S" is supposed to stand for my grandmother's
maiden name of Shuman. I could go on and on for a good
long time about the recent family history. Since they are
