Research Note

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.[19]

On the 1850 census cited above the children's last name is spelled Stumph, probably a transcription error.

Cannot find any source to prove birth and death date given on Huffman-1379. Just think to disconnect this profile as his wife. Have found that two family's are mixed together in error. Sharon

Huffman-5 and Huffman-1379 do not represent the same person because: Should be higher into lower number. A correct merge has been made.

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.

Elizabeth is 20 degrees from Cari Starosta, 19 degrees from Marie-Antoinette d'Autriche and 16 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
