Re: Mary S. Heffinger, b. 1873, Virginia
Glad to meet someone else researching the Heffinger surname. Do you know the origin?
One other bit of information I have on George Heffinger(also listed as Heffelfinger): he is on the 1909 Smyth Co. VA Confederate Pension List; I found him as well on the Confederate Pension Rolls, Veterans & Widows (Card #7 of 80-Library of Virginia Digital Collections; Roll 24, Page No. 375).
Where is your family from? I am related to Mary Heffinger by marriage of my ggrandfather, John Wesley Buchanan. They were last found in the Smyth Co. VA 1910 Census at the age of 43/36 respectively. I do not know when or where they died, or where they are buried.
Hope we can help each other.
