Thank you for "hooking me up"

My Huffmans are very well documented (not by me) I will give you a sketch and an explanation. John Huffman, of Eisern, Ger. b. 1663 -md- Gertrude Richardson and among others had a son John, b. 1692 in Siegen, Ger. He came to America with the German colony & married 7, Nov. 1721 Anna Catherine Haeger in Faurquir Co.Va. He died there 3, July 1772. Among others they had a son John, b.10,Apr. 1739 in Fauquier. He died after 1812 in Butler Co. Ohio. His wife was Elizabeth, maiden name unknown. Then we have another John (there is one in every generation) among others (I do have all these names of other children) This John's wife was Mary, again no maiden name he was b. 1775 in Rockingham Co.Va. & died in Fulton Co. Ill. Their children were:


& Harriet.
William married
Alice Davis & Harriett married Edmond Davis Edmond & Alice were twins. Edmond was my G.G.Grandfather and Alice was the G.G.Grandmother of John'i Cherny of Ancestry Inc. She sent me every thing on this line with all the documentation as I said I just gave you a quick outline. If you want to next library trip look for "Ancestry's Guide to Research, case histories in American Genealogy" by Johni Cerny & Arlene Eakle. It is loaded with Hoffman information on this line, you can imagine the war hoop I let out when I found this book. Johni was just as excited as I was when I contacted her as she had no information on Edmonds descendants (they all went to Oregon). Anyway she sent me ALL the information on the Davis line from Immigrant to present time with all the Wills, everything. I was just flabbergasted. Do you have any idea of how hard it would be to trace a Davis line ? I had just kept shoving back for later and here I was handed it all on a silver platter. The first & last time I had a break like that but why be greedy [Smile] If you can find any connection let me know & I will fill in the blanks. One more thing this name is sometimes written "Houghman". Mary
