My husband, Roger Shoffit's grandfather was John Shoffit, and he was born near Spavinaw, OK.John was married to Elizabeth Staton, by history, an Osage indian.They had six children:Margie, Alene, Carl, Orville, Jearl and Jessie,They are all now deceased. Jessie had three boys; Mark, Dennis and Jeffrey.Jearl had two sons: Roger and John Wayne. They are the only Shoffit surnames, along with our son, Joanthan, that we are aware of. John Wayne Shoffit has a daughter Kimberly. John and Elizabeth moved to the Houston, Tx area, but the timeframe is unknown, possibly before or during WW II. We now live in northwest Arkansas, and have encountered several Shoffits, but have been unable to make a connection to John and Elizabeth Shoffit.
