Lori, Did you ever find information pertaining to your Horace Hullon Hefner and Lucien B. Hefner ?? From looking at several census pages this afternoon, it appears that Lucien B. Hefner was the son of Washington Hefner and the family was living in Lawrence County, Alabama. The father of this Washington Hefner was Peter Hefner who was born abt. 1802 in North Carolina. This is the Hefner family line that goes back to a Johann George Hefner who was the family immigrant from Germany - this was determined through DNA testing. P.S. I am wondering is the "B" in Lucien's name is for Bracken ??
