Elizabeth "Betsy" Huffman, daughter of Alexander and Hannah Vannoy Huffman, born September 1824 in Randolph/Barbour County, (West) Virginia and died after 1900 in Calhoun County, West Virginia where she was living with Levi Stump, her son. Alexander Huffman, her grandfather was one of the first settlers in what became Calhoun County who moved with Elizabeth Johnson, his sister, from Barbour County, (West) Virginia in 1829. She married John Stump Jr, son of Absalom Sr and Margaret Bush Stump, in Lewis County, (West) Virginia about 1841/2.
Levi H b Jul 12 1873, d Oct 10 1948, m Bertha Stump Feb 27 1893 Catherine Bush 70 y/o born Pennsylvania.
A picture of Elizabeth "Betsy" Huffman Stump with her children: 1st row: Arena "Neen" Vannoy, Hannah Linger, Margaret Wright, Betsy, 2nd row: Levi, Jay, Alexander, Benjamin Stump can be found here. 
With this family keep in mind that Gilmer was created from Lewis in 1845 and Calhoun from Gilmer in 1856 as cited above. In fact, they probably lived in the same area throughout their marriage and the birth of their children. Barbour County was created in 1843 from Harrison, Randolph and Lewis Counties.
On the 1850 census cited above the children's last name is spelled Stumph, probably a transcription error.

Huffman-1379 and Huffman-5 appear to represent the same person because: Source: 1870 Calhoun County, Census names all of John and Elizabeth Huffman;s children. Part on Huffman-1379 and part on Huffman-5. Other sources on the latter.
