RICHARD WORLEY NORTH CAROLINA PIRATE HANGED SC. FEB 17 1719
HISTORY OF BEDFORD
The Kernel Of Greatness, a traditional story was included which stated that a "recorded" settlement of eleven families took place in the year 1728 by a group of Virginians. In that year, Joseph Powell, a grandson of Thomas Powell, led a group of thirteen other men into the Town Creek Valley to look for a place to settle. The group consisted of Powell and Herodeus Blue, Philip Brandwater, Robert Fleethart (Freehart), Michael Huff, Richard Iiames, Joseph Johnson (Johnston), George Painter, Thomas Prather, Ignatius Rock, John Spergen (Spurgeon), John Still, George Tunis and Achor Worley (Wooley). Powell, himself, returned to Virginia without homesteading in this region at that time; he would return later. Of the remaining twelve men, all but one, George Tunis, traveled back to Virginia and brought their families northward to live in what would become Bedford County.
It should be noted, that of this group, only Michael Huff's, Joseph Johnson, John Spergen and Achor Worley's names (or those of their descendants) appeared on any tax assessment return for this region ~ perhaps because the others died prior to being "caught" by the tax assessors. Joseph Johnson became the first Euro-American to die and be buried in this region. His tombstone, engraved with the death date of 1731, was located in the Shawnee Graveyard. It was, unfortunately, destroyed by highway construction. Iiames died in 1758. Brandwater died in 1768. Still died in 1770, and his wife, an Indian, took their children and moved west. Worley died in 1775. Blue, Fleehart, Painter and Rock's death dates are not known, but they died by drowning early on while trapping.
MICHEAL HUFF WAS A INLAW OF CAPT SAMUEL GIBSIN TEATER,
ARCHOR WORLEY WAS THE SON OF JOHN WORLEY AND A COUSIN UNCLE OF CPT SAMUEL GIBSON TEATER BOTH OF THSE HAD A CONNECTION HERE AS WHY GEORGE WILLIAM TEATER AND SAMUEL GIBSON TEATER, CAME HERE TO EARN LIVING AS LONGHUNTER FUR TRADERS AND PELT HUNTERS
Michael Huff bap. 29 Mar 1714, St Paul's Episcopal Ch., Kent Co., MD as son of John & Hannah (Morgan). D. either Bedford of Washington CO., PA. Md. Elizabeth c. 1715 in MD.
Michael was identified in the John Huff Will to receive 50 acres of land John had bought in 1717 from Thomas Gideons. On 21 Oct 1740, Michael Huff, John Huff, J.S. Calder & Grorge Cooper, Jr. had inventoried John Huff's estate; with Morgan Huff & M. A. Page as appraisers. On 12 Dec 1741, Michael Huff disposed of the 50 acres he had received. Michael on 16 May 1735 witnessed Will of William Bayley of Kent Co. Michael may have left Kent Co. about the time of his father's death, as he does not show up again on records there.
During 1757/58, one Michael Huff served in the French & Indian War in Capt. Norris' and Lt. Richard Well's Company. This unit was recruited in Balt. Co., which then included Harford Co. This Michael, from circumstantial evidence is believed to be the son of Michael & Elizabeth, but this could be wrong. After the War, Richard Well led the move to Western VA, which then included part of present PA.
By 1768, 1769 & 1770, Michael Huff Sr. and Micheal Huff Jr. were with Joseph Doddridge in Bedford and Colerain townships of Bedford Co., PA. Later, some of the sons moved to Washington Co., PA.

Michael, Jr. lived in Bedford and Washington counties in PA and moved into Ohio when it opened for settlement.
2. John, b. c. 1743 MD; d. c. 1783/84 OH; md. c. 1763 Sarah Elizabeth Doddridge, dau of Joseph & Mary (Biggs) Doddridge and sister of Hannah. John & Mary were moving their family to KY when he was killed by Indians on the Ohio river The family continued on to Hardin County, KY.
