I am happy to hear from you, I research Hefners, mine, I had run intoyour Hefners and couldn't figure out where they came from.
I have the earlist one as being Major Cannon Hefner b. abt 1792 NC.*Do you know anything about him.All I know is about his children!
Then I found one of his son's sa William Harvey Hefner b. bet. 1818-1824 GA. Married #1. Elizabeth Richards D. abt 1860
children: James Hefner Jasper Hefner John Prince Hefner-married Nancy Ellen Rogers Sept 27, 1877 White Co., GA She was born abt. 1845 in GA. Children: Albert Hefner b. abt. 1866 GA Vas Hefner b. abt. 1870 GA Ben Hefner b. Harvey (Henry) Hefner b. abt. 1873 GA Lona (Sonia)Hefner b. abt. 1875 GA Larkin Hefner b. abt. 1876 GA Raleigh Hefner b. abt 1879 GA
I have most of the census records for these childrens. Do you have access to the GA census images? It would be a while before I could copy/type all of this.If you have access to GA census I could tell you the counties and years to look.
