There is a photo of a gravestone in Cherokee Cemetery, Oroville, Butte County, Colorado, that says this: ELIZABETH ANN Wife of Jacob Hufford DIED Oct. 13, 1880. Aged 77 yrs & 6 mo.
Whoever made the entry quotes from "Chico Semi Weekly Enterprise, Tuesday Evening, October 19, 1880, pg 2," from a newspaper column called "Cherokee Notes":
"We had two funerals last Thursday [Oct 14, 1880], that of Mrs. Huford [sic: Hufford], and that of Mr. Hazard, two very old people."
Other HUFFORDs found buried in the cemetery match the children of Jacob (of John of Christian I) and his wife Elizabeth ALLEN.
I find what appears to be a match to Jacob (of John of Christian I) on a voter registration list in Cherokee, Butte Co., California, in 1878: age, 77; born in Ohio(not a match); occupation, jobber. Son James Allen is on the same voter list, also listed in Cherokee.
And, I find what appears to be a match in an 1885 county directory for Cherokee, Butte Co., California.
I do not find him after 1885.
Now, what I have found would not conflict with what Eva Myrick said she found in a newpaper obit in 1891 in "The Chronical" of Scott Co., Indiana.Eva said the old newpaper obit says that Jacob died in Scott Co., Indiana, in December 1891.And Eva Myrick said another obit in the same publication said his wife "Elizabeth" died that same month.
It *is* possible *if* Jacob secondly married another woman named Elizabeth.
But, this has been several years since this was addressed here, and perhaps others already have smoothed out the wrinkles with this situation.
