My Hufford ancestor: Elizabeth Hufford, born 1851

Over the years of my HUFFORD research, some have asked, “But are YOU a Hufford descendant?”

The answer, of course, is yes.

My most recent ancestor who was born with the HUFFORD name is Elizabeth Hufford who was born June 25, 1851, in Carroll Co., Indiana.  She is pictured with her husband and children on page 81 of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY.

Elizabeth is front and center. Left front, with his cane, is Elizabeth’s husband, George Hooker. On George’s lap is their son Challence (born in 1889). Right front is daughter Dora (born in 1886). Standing, from left to right are Theodore (b. 1882), Sarah Catharine (b. 1871), George (b. 1877), Rosa (b. 1874), William (b. 1879), Mary Elizabeth (b. 1873), and James (b. 1882). The family dog is lying on the ground in front of them.

I am one of Elizabeth Hufford’s great-great-granddaughters.

Elizabeth was a strait-laced, German Baptist Brethren farm girl who married a Catholic man who had served in the Civil War.  Together, they had nine children and raised all to adulthood.

She lived out her life in Clay Township, Carroll Co., Indiana, part of the corn belt that crosses the middle of Indiana.  She was in Carroll Co. for all but a few years of her life.  In 1899, after her husband had lost everything when a flood washed away his logging business, they moved with their sons to Minot, Ward Co., North Dakota, and began again. Before 1910, Elizabeth and George returned to Carroll Co., but their sons remained in North Dakota.

Elizabeth and George were married for fifty years and seven months, until he died in 1921, and they argued about religion until the day that he died. In private, their argument must have ceased: They had nine children, with the first child born 11 months after they married and the ninth child born when Elizabeth was 38.

Always, Elizabeth’s attitudes were German Baptist.  Always, her husband’s attitudes were Roman Catholic. One time their sons were in the attic of their house playing cards. Elizabeth was scandalized that her sons were playing cards, and she complained to George that their boys were “sinning.”  George answered, “But they’re doing it quietly.”

By the laws of the Catholic church of that time, as soon as George married Elizabeth, he was excommunicated as a Catholic.

Here’s Elizabeth’s line: Elizabeth b. 1851 > Andrew b. 1827 > Abraham b. 1788 > Casper b. > Christian b. 1716 in Schwaigern, Germany.

The photo below shows Elizabeth with her husband, after many years of marriage.  Her head covering is typical of Brethren women.

Christian’s grandson Christian III (1780-1827)

Christian who was born in 1716 in Schwaigern, Germany, had a son named after him: Christian II, born 1746 in Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania.

Christian II had nine children, obviously, all grandchildren of Christian I. Only one of those nine grandchildren made it into the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY: Christian III, born August 1780, died August 1827 in Fairfield Co., Ohio. Christian III’s descendants are in Part II of the book, from page 200 through page 230. What is below includes all who are on those pages, and what is below includes corrections and completions of information that is on those pages.

The descendancy list begins with Christian b. 1716 Schwaigern. Christian III is number 3 on the list. Every number 4 is a child of Christian III.

I’ve tried to omit information on the living. Links are to findagrave.com pages where you may find more information. Christian III’s children are not arranged in birth order here. Rather, they are arranged in the order they show in the 1909 book. The arrangement in the 1909 book was incorrect because the editor had some birth years wrong. On this list, to make it easier to follow along with Volume I of the HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY, the arrangement is as it is in the 1909 book.

Ellen “Ella” Rinehart, a great-great granddaughter of Christian b. 1716

My puzzle for the weekend was one step beyond the HUFFORD name: Ellen Dorcas “Ella” RINEHART’s mother was a born Hufford. What is below can be considered a replacement for page 224 of the HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY. The first problem with page 224 is that the book editor misspelled the last name of Ella’s first husband. The correct spelling is LONGENECKER.

from page 224

Ellen Dorcas “Ella” Rinehart: 1st Mrs. Longenecker, 2nd Mrs. Frick, 3rd Mrs. Jennings.

Ellen Dorcas “Ella” RINEHART was the 11th child of Sarah Hufford (page 218), who was the 6th child of Christian III (page 200), who was the son of Christian II (b. 1746), who was the son of Christian the immigrant (b. 1716 in Schwaigern).

    (As an aside, the number in front of each person in the book is the birth order for that child. There is no real index in the book, and understanding the code to birth order is key to finding people in the book, and to finding both the ancestors and descendants of a person. The book was put together for family, family who knew how they all were related.)

Ella married Franklin W. LONGENECKER on December 24, 1874. With Franklin, she had seven children: Iva E. (m. Donovan SHIELDS), Artha F. (m. Jesse VAN HART), Leona (m. Charles W. McDONALD), Pearl A. (m. Elmer HARTER), Olive (m. Earl WISE), Dessa Z.    (m. Walter “Bob” TIBBETTS), and Webster Orville. Ella’s husband Franklin died in May 1894.

In 1896, she married the widower Rudy FRICK (b. 1845), a carpenter and Civil War veteran. He was the father of at least seven children from his first marriage. In November 1903, well into her 40s, Ella gave birth to Rudy’s son, Robert. In February 1904, Rudy died. Nineteen months later, Rudy and Ella’s son Robert died.

About a year later, Ella married a third time, to another widower: William Calvin JENNINGS, a farmer born in 1852. Calvin died in March 1930.

In April 1930, Ella was living in Washington Twp., Darke Co., Ohio, with her daughter Pearl and Pearl’s husband Elmer Harter.

Ella died of bronchial pneumonia on March 3, 1931, in Darke Co., Ohio. Her remains were laid to rest at Hillgrove Cemetery, with her first husband and her son Robert.

Her gravestone and her death certificate together show that the puzzle pieces have been fitted together correctly:

Death certificate for Ellen Dorcas Rinehart

Jacob Hufford of Scott Co., Indiana: TWO WIVES

Success today!

I long had puzzled about Jacob Hufford (son of John, son of Christian b. 1716 Schwaigern). The facts on him just weren’t adding up.

The 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY said this, at page 264:

snip from page 264

I found his marriage record to Elizabeth Ann ALLEN in Scott Co., Indiana, 25-June-1823. I found him in Scott Co. in 1830, living near his brothers Solomon, John, and William, and near Samuel HOPPER, his sister Elizabeth’s husband. He and his wife had four children under ten – two boys and two girls.

In 1834, he bought 38 acres in Scott Co.; in 1837, another 38 acres; in 1839, 40 acres. All land was in section 1, township 3-N, range 7-E, 2nd PM meridian.

In 1840, they were still in Scott Co. They were living next to Jacob’s brother William and a few farms down from Patsy Hufford, the wife of their brother John. Seven children in the household: five boys and two girls.

In 1850, the family had moved to Decatur Co., Iowa. In the household were their children James, Jacob, Elizabeth, John, and Eliza. In 1860, John and Elizabeth were back in Scott Co., Indiana, with one grandson. By 1872, Jacob was in Cherokee, Butte Co., California, where he was listed on the voter registration list.

In June 1880, his wife Elizabeth was in Butte Co., with their son James and daughter Elizabeth, but Jacob was not in the household.

In October 1880, Elizabeth died. Her death notice appeared in the Chico Semi-Weekly Enterprise on October 19, 1880, and her gravestone says she died October 13, 1880:
ELIZABETH ANN
Wife of
Jacob Hufford
DIED
Oct. 13, 1880.
Aged 77 yrs. & 6 mo.
Elizabeth's gravestone

Buried in the same cemetery are Jacob and Elizabeth’s son James Allen and John Newton. It is a clear match for Jacob’s wife Elizabeth.

However, there are death notices for Jacob Hufford and his wife Elizabeth in the old weekly newspaper The Chronicle of Scott Co., Indiana. Elizabeth’s notice appeared Dec. 17, 1891, page 3, column 2, saying she died Dec. 9, 1891. Jacob’s notice appeared Dec. 24, 1891, page 3, column 2, saying that he died Dec. 18, 1891, in New Frankfort, Scott Co., Indiana.

It just was not making sense. Did I have the wrong Jacob? Was there another Jacob in Scott Co., buried in the same small cemetery where Jacob’s brother William’s wife was buried?

Then I found online a book of Scott Co., Indiana, will abstracts: “Index and Scott County, Indiana, Will Book Records,” by Carl R. Bogardus, 1974.

And at page 20, I found this:

    HUFFORD: JACOB. Date 3-2-1881. Prob. 3-21-1892. Exec: Elizabeth Hufford, John T. Mitchell. Witt: M.B. Reynold, Dexter Davis, John T. Mitchell, Heirs: present wife, Elizabeth. Sons, David, James Allen, Jacob, John. Daughters, Nancy Jane Fields, Elizabeth Cushman, Eliza A. Sewell. (not found recorded in indexes of Will Bk, A & B)

The names were an absolute match. The daughters’ married names all matched. How, if Elizabeth died in October 1880 in Butte Co., California, could Jacob have named her in a will that he wrote March 2, 1881? Then I read a little more closely: “present wife, Elizabeth.”

Present wife.” In other words, there had been another wife, another Elizabeth.

Indiana Marriage Collection, 1800-1941, (found at ancestry.com) shows that Jacob Hufford married Elizabeth McFADDEN December 21, 1880, in Scott Co., Indiana. Two months after his wife died in California, Jacob married again in Indiana. But, he was 79. Why waste time?

Further research showed that Elizabeth McFadden was born Elizabeth BRIDGEWATER in about 1816. She first married Henry SMITH; he died in 1849. She second married the widower Henry McFadden. Jacob Hufford was her 3rd husband.

Puzzle solved! Here are the three findagrave entries:
Jacob HUFFORD (1801-1891)
Elizabeth Ann ALLEN, the 1st Mrs. Jacob Hufford (1803-1880)
Elizabeth BRIDGEWATER, the 2nd Mrs. Jacob Hufford (1816-1891)

All of Jacob’s children were born to his first wife, Elizabeth Allen. His children and descendants are on pages 264 and 265 of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY. Below is his list of descendants extended. There may be some wrinkles still to be ironed out.

Finding a child you never knew of: son of an Andersonville POW

Finding a child you’d never known of is always a surprise, especially when it’s the child of a man who died young in the Civil War after time in the Andersonville Prison.

Jefferson C. BEERY was born in 1832, the son of Susannah HUFFORD and her husband David BEERY. Susannah was Christian Hufford’s granddaughter through his son Casper. Susannah was 48 with eight or nine children living when her husband died in the Mexican War. Her children ranged from six to 29. Susannah’s basic information is on page 166 of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY. Information on Susannah’s descendants is at pages 166 and 167; the only mention of Jefferson is that he was dead.

Jefferson was a surviving twin; his twin brother John died as an infant. Jefferson was eight when his father left for the Mexican War, and Jeff never again saw his father. Jeff was ten when his father died.

When Jeff was 28, in June 1861, he married Sarah A. SEVITTS. When he was 30, in November 1862, he left for the U.S. Civil War. He enlisted as a private in Company C, 72nd Infantry Regiment, Ohio. On June 11, 1864, he was captured in Ripley, Mississippi. He spent time in Andersonville Prison and died of disease in late October 1864 in Savannah, Georgia.

And that’s where Jefferson Beery’s story was believed to end until a death certificate was found:
William Beery's death certificate

Jeff Beery had a son: William Beery, born four months before Jeff enlisted into the U.S. Army. William died in 1946 in Sandusky Co., Ohio. Whether William had any children is not known. I can find him on the 1880 census, 16 years old and doing farm labor in Sandusky Co., Ohio, but the next I find him is in 1910 after his marriage had ended. Lots can happen in thirty years.

If you descend from William, I’d love to hear from you: alicemariebeard@gmualumni.org
