Re: Huffman Family Bible
I thought that I would write in response to this posting after having read Re: Need parents of John Huffman, died 1827 SC Annette Edgeworth-Smith 12/27/05 #3579
I don't have the parents of John Huffman but am reasonably sure that I have a copy of his pension records. The Records indicate that John Huffman of Amherst County, VA was born about 1757. In that he filed for pension and filed an affidavit 4 Aug 1818 stating that he was then 61 years of age (Lucretia was then 62). He served in the Continental Army Infantry having joined in Amherst, VA July of 1780. He was discharged from service in Camden, SC 9 Jan 1782. He was married to Lucrecia,(no last name mentioned) 18 Feb 1784. John Huffman died 25 June 1828.
Lucinda recieved a pension until 20 Nov 1838 while residing in Edgefield District, SC.
In 1820 John mentioned he had three children, one dead and 2 grandchildren. In 1825 he efers to one child a widow with 8 children, and a son who had 9 children.
notes in the margin say something about Henry Huffman and JP 1838 in Edgefield, Dist, SC.
Hope some of this helps. I was trying and still am to link him to a John Huffman from My line who would have been born in Md about 1762.
Can you let me know where the bible record is from and exactly what it says?
