Announcement: Thomas Hough Taylor (son of Martha Jo Hough of Cleveland, Ohio) and Mari McAvenia (granddaughter of Anna Hough of Eldon, Missouri) are pleased to announce their marriage on May 3, 2003 on the banks of the North River in Norwell, MA. This pairing brings together two seperate branches of the Houghs (Tom's descends from PA- Mari's from MA and CT.) The lovely, waterfront spot we chose to seal our union is very close to Green Harbor, where William Hough first landed in America in 1634, before proceeding to Boston where he met and married Sarah Caulkins a few years later. We two -very distant cousins, now husband and wife- wish you all peace and love!

Charles Worth Hoff: Genealogical Data Entry: Born 25 Aug 1889 in Dallas Co., IA. He was the 8th child of Powell Hoff and wife, Martha Brewster Hoff. He emigrated to Barhead, Alberta, Canada in ~1900 ostensibly to join his 2 older brothers, Oscar C. "Shorty" Hoff and John Cassius Hoff, who had gone to the Klondike in 1898 for the Gold Rush, had done well, and written encouraged the younger brother to come join them, but "for God's sake, don't do what we did going via the Chilkoot Pass. Instead, come by train to Edmonton, buy a horse and ride it for 6-8 weeks to Dawson", where they intended to meet. Charles did what they suggested, and then crossed his first Canadian river in February on the trail to Dawson, and swore he'd never cross another one. When he got to the second river at Barrhead, he stopped, cut a log cabin, and stayed. He wrote, telling the brothers he wasn't coming. They reportedly visited him enroute back to the "Lower 48", helping him clear the land and prepare to farm. After the Province was platted in 1902-5, he homesteaded, farmed and stayed. In 1907 me married Nellie Cox Morgan, and they had 4 children: 1. Gerald Hoff (B: 1909, died in infancy, buried in Lunnford, Alb.,Canada); 2.

A very useful book. I have found several people that I could help, and one that I hope can help me. Now I will add a query. I am looking for information about Douglas A. Huff, son of Douglas Manley Huff of Detroit, MI. All I know about him is that he was described as a colonel - branch not named - in his father's obituary in 1976. Any help will be much appreciated.

Wondering if you have any info on an Asa Hough, s/o Chauncey Hough, s/o of Smauel Hough and Hannah Page. Info I have is that Samuel, born in Meriden, CT moved to lewis County, N.Y. He and Hannah had son Chauncey. No birth date. Chauncey married a Lydia no marriage date. They had Asa and Aurilla. Aurilla was born in Canada. All this from THE DESCENDENTS OF WILLIAM HOUGH OF CONNECTICUT. Reason for asking is that I have two Asa's in Ontario that I have no parents. Also, at one time there was a letter at a post office, believe it might have been Kingston, in Ontario for a Chauncey Hough. Do you have any info beyond that which E. C. Hough provided ?

I've always known that MARTIN VAN BUREN HUFF(1837-1908)was my great grandfather but was unsure about anything beyond that. Recently have rec. info that states his father was either JACOB OR JAMES and his mother was MARGARET DOUMIT(1802-1881), his siblings were MAHALA E. HUFF(b.1936) and MARY A. HUFF(b after 1837) and....that JOSEPH (1766-1844)was MVB's grandfather. Joseph's father was MICHAEL HUFF, JR.(1741-1820), Michael's father was MICHAEL HUFF, SR.(1714-1787), this Michael's father was JOHN HUFF II(1686-1740) AND then there was two more John Huff's. Does anyone else out there have any of these people in your ancestors? I would love to hear from you. Thanks, Margie

Great sight! I too have hit a brick wall. My G-G-Grandfather was Samuel Huff in Portland, Maine. His wife was Orpha ne;Fuller. Samuel was born in 1805 but I don't know where and who his parents were. He was married in 1829 in Portland. There are a lot of Huffs and Houghs in Maine starting in the 1600s with Atherton. However common names filtered down like Samuel, Asa, Eliz, George I still can not find the connection between Samuel and his past. What is the book, Shirt tail kin?Can anyone help me? Thanks,gloria

My HUFF's hail from Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. The alpha male, Charles W. (1811-1877) married Sarah Ann Cowdrick, about 1830, and had 9 children(there might be more). He worked in the lumber trade all his life and died in Lock Haven, Pa. Charles W. is my g.g.grandfather and my census records indicate he may have been born in New Jersey. This is consistent with the history of the area; there were many transplants from New Jersey including his wife's family, the COWDRICK's. Anyone here have a missing Charles being born in 1810-1811 in New Jersey, Virginia, or Pennsylvania? If the names mean anything, his children were named James F., Catherine, John T., Charles W., Isaac L., Martha L., Susan E., Elizabeth, and George W.

They lived in Boutetourt Co., VA next door to DAVID (b.1791,VA) and MARY (b.1793, VA)Hoff and family. I suspect David and Mary are the parents of Daniel.

Kindly communicate with me to establish our lineage in more detail if you are of the view that you may have South African connections. How about that we stop worrying so much about detail and all get together? Maybe, we are able to build a better world!

In 1900, (probably in Hart Co, KY) Hardin Thomas Huff (a brother to Clayton) purchased a new bible and copied the family information in order to preserve the records. This was done because of the age and deterioration of the original bible. I am trying to find information on either of these bibles and what might have happened to them?

Good day, I am very excited to find this web site. I am currently researching the Haugh and Huff names. Interestingly enough, my great-grandmother was a Huff that married a Haugh. Her surname was Shaner, which is another family line that I am researching. The Haugh family is a descendant of Nathan Haugh in Pennsylvania in the mid-1800's. I'll post more information on this lineage when I have the book in hand. But, in the mean time, if anyone has any information on these names, or would like the information that I already have, please email. I also have photos.

She was born Aug. 1, 1855, in Prince Edward, Ontario, Canada, and died May 23, 1940 in Pueblo, Colorado. She married Charles E. Smith around 1873 and immigrated to the US with him and my grandmother Mabel A. Smith in 1892. Naturalized American in 1904.

I have just completed the Guestbook entries. So interesting, took some notes for my "gap" information, such as name change, Huff travel patterns and name identification from my childhood. My maternal grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Huff 1891-1966. She was born in Granville, TN and she married Charles Grover Lee. We were told (grandchildren) that he was a descendent of Robert E. Lee. The Guestbook didn't seem to mention our branch of the Huff line and I do not know my grandma Lees father or mothers names. The names I do remember being linked to grandma are: William Huff, Tolly Hall, Crystal Hall, Lyman Hall, Fannie Huff, Cora Huff, the last name Porter,(could be a first name). I have quite a few pictures of family Huff "Gatherings". I can not identify all. These pictures were taken mostly in the 1930s and all in TN. Charles and Mary moved from TN to OH before 1932. They had three daughters: Elizabeth Marie Lee b.1911 Oak Row,TN; Audrie Corrine Lee b.1912 PA (I believe PA) and my mother Nettie Anderson Lee b.1914 in Gallatin, TN. Really excited about my find "The Huff, Hough, Hoff Database" Great. Please let me know if my branch of the family has been "branching out" here on this site. Thanks in advance for the consideration and the great site. Mudd is my married name. Seems I have people circling Abraham Lincoln. My husbands tree contains Dr. Samuel Mudd.

My g grandfather was Karl K Huff Dob11-28-1878 DOD 1-10-1962 Throckmorton Tx. He married Nancy Bell Tharp. I have all kinds of stuff on Nancy But nothing on Karl. They had 1 son John Allen Tharp Huff died in 1971 I think in Throckmorton. Back to Karl He went by K.K. Huff he had 1 of the 1st Gulf credit cards and he voted I'm sure but it's like he never excisted.

I never realized there were so many interested in our last name! I'm researching the Hough family line that came out of Bucks County, PA. (The Howe is my married name, but his family claim to have Americanized it from "Haugh," originally from Ireland.) There's a couple of lines that are published on gencircles.com right now (mine included).

Royal Lines?? The Huff Coat of arms I have found is blazoned with the colour Gules (RED), witch in translation, was given only to Soveriegn Princes.. Wondering if anyone knew of a Huff connection to a Royal line. Also, My husband Tim Huff (Son of Brian and Cheryl Huff, Brian being the son of Dudley and Dorthy Huff) and I have just begun to search our family lineage and history. If anyone knows of Canadian relatives, or decendats in their own research I would really appricate the info. Thanks so much!!

I started looking up relatives shortly before she passed away, hoping to preserve as much of hers as possible. I never suspected I'd find some much information about Dad's side of the family. As soon as I can digest all that I've learned today alone I'll start looking for more.

Hello Max, In July 1999, you graciously e-mailed me a 6 generation file of ancestors of Truman Hough (aka Mortimer Truman), son of Joel and Sarah Hough. As you promised, that "answered many questions and generated many new ones". Truman's burial place still eludes me. You provided a death date of June 24, 1846 for Truman. Would you be able to offer any new leads. Sincere appreciation, Bonnie

Nice web page. The Houghs were indeed an old Cheshire (the Wirral peninsula) name. They were listed in the Henry VIII subsidy rolls of 1542 and before. We are interested to see if some may have been descended from the Norwegian Vikings who settled in the Wirral in the 10th century, and have instigated a DNA y-chromosome survey.

Hi, Max! I am brand new at this genealogy thing and have already hit a wall. Please help if you can. My ancestry is unique because I am related to the huffs on both sides. Here is what I know so far: My maternal great grandmother was born in 1845 in Waterford, Louden Co., Virginia. Her father was Howard Huff, born in 1817. On the other side, my paternal great grandmother was Fannie L. Hough who was married in 1874 in Jefferson Co. Ohio to Howard A. Deitch. When I was a young child, I used to hear my grandfather Charles Albright (Elizabeth Huff Albright's son) and my father's aunt Fannie (daughter of Howard A. and Fannie Hough Deitch) say that they were cousins through the Huffs. Any information on where the connection was formed would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, Max! I am brand new and inexperienced and just stumbled onto your site. I hope you can help me because I have already hit a wall on finding my Hough/Huff ancestors. What is unique about my ancestry is that I am related to them on both sides. I was told as a child that my mother and father are distant cousins. Here is what I know so far: My maternal great grandmother was Elizabeth Huff, born 1845 in Waterford, Loudoun Co., Virginia. Her father was Howard Huff, born 1817 in Waterford. Her mother was Phebe Ann Moore. In addition to Elizabeth, they were also the parents of Mollie, Thomas, and John Huff. Now on the other side...My paternal great grandmother was Fannie L. Hough, probably born in the 1850's. She was married 5-27-1874 in Jefferson Co. Ohio to Howard A. Deitch, who was my father's paternal gandfather. As a kid my mother's father, Charles Albright and my father's aunt, Fannie B. Deitch, used to say they were cousins through the Huffs. I need help in figuring out where the families connected. Any information from anyone would be so appreciated!

My line of Hough's supposedly were German. Jacob Hough was in Westmoreland Co. PA in the late 1700's, his father may have come from Germany. The Hough's migrated to Ohio, then Illinois, and then my line to Indiana.

Is there anything known about imigration to other european countries.....their are a coupleof Hoghs in Denmark and Slovakia and Germany..just a few.....but still;-) as far as I was able to learn, back to my grand-grand father...they came from slovakia....but their no further origin roots can be found there. Most of the dokuments where lost during WW2. And as far as I know .....there doesn´t even exist a similar kind or even a close spelling of the name Hogh in this region . Everybody says it´s at least a celtic Name. Do you kow more ?

have traced my family back to Paulus Dirckse Hoff. my current questions/concerns are that i have seen joseph stuff huff's wife listed as Jane Ellen Bronson and as Brunson. which is it? Joseph born 1839 is son of Nicholas Huff. Also ive seen many spellings of Bergan Huff son of Pieter Huff. is it Bergan, Brogon, Bergen, Brougon, Bergon or Bergan? There also seems to be confusion as to who is the mother of Pieter Hoff or Huff, is it Covert or Yeats. Also ive seen William Hoff listed as son of Derrick and sarah Yeats showing his birth as 1672 yet sarah and derrick didnt marry till 1684 and and sarah was born 1660 making her 12 when he was born. ive also seen his birth as apr 20 1685 yet derick hoff was born aug 1685, how did sarah yeats pull that one off????

They went to Hersey, MI and from there to Foley, AL. They had 3 girls and 8 boys, one of whom, was my grandfather, Edward. Would like to hear from some relatives. Think Uncle Fred was doing some genealogical work. I believe he was from Paradise, CA. This is a great service, Max. Thanks.

Again this is a great site Max! Does anyone have anything on Delanson M. Huff, b. 1819-don't know where, and died 1898 and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Paris Twp. Michigan. His wife is Jane and there are two other stones, one reads Rammond 1899 and one for Alfred-a two year old. (I think 1843-45.) Might he have been in the Canadian Huff's that came to Michigan? They are buried in a plot right next to my Charles Isaac Huff, son of Isaac P. Huff, son of James Huff. Both Isaac and James were born in NJ. Delanson was a glove manufacturer in Grand Rapids, MI according to the 1889 and 1890 directory. I'm researching this,just to find out where he came from! Does anyone have anything? He also went by initials, D.M. Happy hunting! Kathy Londo Barnes Researching: Affantranger/Affentranger, Huff, Thompson Switzerland>NJ>PA>MI, NJ>PA>OH>MI, Scotland>NY>MI

Max, I love your site and was refered by a wonderful lady Carol Huff. I am searching for a Huff but Im not for sure if it is spelled Huff(could be spelled other ways). His name is Greg Huff and served in the military in 1971-1972. He was in virginia stationed near Newport News(Fort Ustess,V.A or L.A.F.B in Hampton V.A.). His parents HUFF(SP?) lived in ILLINOSE and he is around 50-55 yrs old. I believe his parents lived around the springfield (IL)area. If anyone has any information reguarding a Greg Huff pls contact me at wendeee2001@hotmail.com. Thnk You

Hello Max, It's been several years since I logged on to your site. I'm hoping to dig into my own Huff line now, having largely excluded it up to this point working on my wife's OSTEEN genealogy. The "core" tree my search is centered on is thus: My father was THOMAS MARTIN Huff, born 6 Sep 1914 Empire CA, Died 15 Sep 1998 Austin TX. GF: MARTIN LUTHER Huff, b. 10 Feb 1882 Van Buren OH, d. 7 Nov 1958 Modesto CA. GGF: THOMAS GARRISON (AKA GARDNER or GREEN) Huff, b. 3 Apr 1844 Hancock Co, OH, d. 20 May 1918 Empire, CA. GGGF: LEWIS Huff, b. 14 Oct 1814 VA, d. 13 Dec 1901 Savonburg, KS. GGGGF: BENJAMIN Huff, b. abt. 1769 VA. GGGGGF: THOMAS Huff or HOUGH, b. abt. 1745 VA. The basic questions I'm seeking answers for begin with the "G" in my Great-Grandfather's name. I have pensions and other documentation...all with the initial versus full middle name. Next is Lewis Huff; the information I have is attributed to you (Max Huff). Is the link to Benjamin yours as well? Do you have any further information as to Benjamin's Father beiging a HUFF or a HOUGH? Any light you can shed on this would be most appreciated!

My father Merle Norbert Hough died in 1966 when I was 7. I am looking for my brothers from his previous marriages. One brother is James Hough and lived around Yankton Sd for a while, and the other brothers first name is George, the divorce from his mother was said to have been hard and my father never got to see him again and lost all track of him, I think his mother's first name was Ruth but not sure. My grandparents names were James Merle and Etta Mae Hough and lived in South Dakota for a while. Some old family friends of my father said that they are burried in Yankton SD and have IL listed as their state of birth. Merle had a brother, Russel but I do not know more than that.

Haven't visited in awhile, but trying again to sort out our NEW JERSEY HOFFS. I've established the following: JACOB RUSSELL (1875--) m. Seals >WILLIAM HALL (1848-1905) m. VanDeripe >WILLIAM (1817 or 1820-1860) m. Voorhees. The WILLIAM born 1817-1820 is thought to be a son of GABRIEL HOFF (1774-1830) & ANN CHAMBERLIN, but I don't have direct evidence of this. This Gabriel is likely the son of GABRIEL C. (--1790) & Mary Unknown, grandson of CHARLES S. & Angelica Unknown, great-grandson of DERRICK PAULUSZEN HOFF. If anyone has information on these Hunterdon (later Somerset) Hoff's I'd like to hear from you or share what I have.

I am a descendant of Peter Hough who was transported from England to Australia in 1799 on the "Hillsborough". In 1795 he was accused of stealing and was acquitted. In 1797 he was again tried for stealing and was committed to Newgate. In the court procedures it was stated Peter, late of the Liberty of the Rolls in the County of Middlesex. It also mentioned an uncle but unfortunately no name. In one of his papers whilst serving his sentence he stated that he was born in Paris. After researching for 15 years I am still at a standstill. Can anyone out there help me!!!!!!

Am looking for information on a Huff family that was heavily associated with the Day family in Southern Ohio (Brown County) and Central Indiana (Marion County)in the early 1800s. I have Agigail Huff (b. 1815) married to Reuben Day. I have Elizabeth Huff married to Reuben's father Mark as his second wife and a sister or half sister to Abigail. Also Priscilla Huff m. Matthew Day 26 Apr. 1825. She was under 18 so b. abt.1807 , Nancy Ann Huff married Ezra Day, and Mary Polly Huff b. 1803 in PA married Jeremiah Day (three Day brothers who were cousins of Mark and Reuben). Priscilla is reported to be also a half sister of Elizabeth. The others are probably also related. The father is Michael Huff and his wife's name is Deborah but this is probably his second wife. A daughter of Abigail mentions an Uncle Amos Huff so Amos must be a sibling of Abigail. The Day family came from Bucks Co. PA. Then settled in the Ohio R. valley (Clermont/Brown Co. OH & Bracken Co. KY) before some moved on to Indiana. Michael Huff and his wife Deborah are mentioned as living near Sardinia, Brown Co. OH (near Slab Creek) I have been totally unable to find anything further about this Huff family. I've only been looking for Huff. Maybe this was a "name change" generation and I need to look for Hoffs or Houghs. Any info would be appreciated.

While cleaning out a spare bedroom, my mother came across a box of paperwork belonging to my late Grandpa Gordon Hough. He and someone unknown had worked on the Hough family genealogy. There is lineage going back to James & Sarah Hough, residents of Cheshire County, England. The family runs as: James & Sarah Hough children: John, Matthew, Mary, Joseph. Joseph m1. Ester Roe, children: Joseph, Jr., and William. Joseph m2. Elizabeth Ellison, children: three girls (unnamed), son John. William s/o Joseph & Esther m. Alice Shakeshaft, children: Jane, Elizabeth, Esther, Joseph, Alice, Peter, William, Matthew. All except Matthew born in Cheshire County, England, christened at Middlewitch church. William and family left England Aug. 12, 1829 on ship Nimrod, arrived NY Sept 23, 1829, settling in Conn. for eleven years and then moved OH. Peter m. Catherine Pryer, children: John, Mary, Pryer, Hattie, William, Elgie. John m. Margaret Ainslie, children: Jesse, Earl. Jesse m. Susie Burdue, children: Ainslie, Gordon (my grandpa). There is much more info but, no sources as yet. Does this family sound familiar to anyone? There is also an autobiography of Emerson Hough, by himself that was printed in The Saturday Evening Post 1917. Very interesting to read!

Max - I have learnt so much since my original posting. John Hough (b 1834 Oldham Lancashire, UK) married Elizabeth Heywood (b 1839, Oldham Lanc., UK) in Bendigo, Victoria in 1863. They had 9 children (born in Vic, NSW, Tas & NZ). Our rellie, John Joseph Hough was born in 1868 at Blue Spur, Hokitika in NZ. John Joseph & William eventually made their way to WA, not before John Joseph married Winifred Mary Clancy, in 1892 at Jerilderie in NSW. I also know that John Hough (John Joseph's father) came out from the UK aboard the "Titan" in 1857, whilst Elizabeth Heywood sailed on the "Donald McKay" in 1863. Along the way, I have stumbled across another big family of Houghs who originally settled in the Australind & Bunbury areas in Western Australia. There is a lot of info about this family also. Regards, Julia

Thought I would visit your site again Max after about a year and I thought I would let you and all other Huff's know I now have over 400 Huff's and family members researched that lived in the Mercer County Pennsylvania, Trumbull and Mohoning county Ohio areas from about 1805 to present. I also have finished with Seely Nourmond Huff's research on his children. There was a total of thirteen of which seven lived. I have all the birth and death dates now verified by a long lost family Bible. I have created a large network of Huff researchers in these counties and it just keeps getting bigger. I owe a great deal of thanks to you for steering me in the right direction a long time ago. Everyone please feel you can contact me for information. Love those Huff's! Bruce Warren Huff

Thomas and mary came to the U.S. via Canada.My research shows in Granville Hough's book 1620-1850 The Midwest vol v pp88 and pp100&101. I believe that the relationship to also mentioned William S. Hough was plural in that Wm.'s Wife is listed as Hannah Booth. Is it possible that brothers or cousins married sisters or cousins. I know the history after 1850 in IL.

I have not had a lot of luck searching for Hough so this site is fantastic. I am researching a John Hough who married Elizabeth Haywood, had a child Joseph John Hough born at Blue Spur, a mining community near Hokitika, on the west coast of New Zealand. Joseph was born 1868, & I have been unable to locate any other BDM material for this family, other siblings, how & why they left NZ and for where. We know they eventually made their way to the south-west of WA, Australia, but what happened in the meantime? I really hope that i can find out some more. Julia Mitchell

Great Site! It is early in my search of the Huff side, but I am running into some brick walls. My GGgrandfather was William Alonzo Huff born 4/1866, died 10/1952. One account says he moved to Ava, MO from OH at age 4 after his father was killed during the war. Another source says he was born near Springfield, MO. I have no mother's or father's name for him. He married Mattie Burchell 10/88, they lived and died in Ava, MO and I have names of 6 of their 7 children.... Mary Lydia, b 1889 (my Ggrandmother); Charles Francis, b 1891; Flora Abigail, b 1893; Leota M., b 1896; William Alonzo II, b 1899; Homer A., b 1901. Do you have any leads for me? Thank you!

I am now wondering after looking at this more closely if this is possibly my Mary Huff's family. The reason being that her and Levi Bowyer named one of their sons Mahlon. 1840 Census: Rush Township. William ia not listed, but within the household of Henry and Mary Huff is a male, age 20-30. This fits the age group of William. Henry and Mary are age 50-60, and they are the parents of William, Mahlon, Phillip, Isaac (Dr.),Anthony, ((Mary Ann???,)) Ellen, and Margaret. Do you happen to know anything about the daughter named Mary Ann who I put in paranthesis with question marks above? Thank you. 1850 Census: Rush Twp., Northumberland Co. - William Huff, 35; Mary Huff, 38; Margaret Huff, 32; and Isaac Huff, 34 (Teacher) are all in the same hh and adjoining the hh of Mahlon and Hannah Huff and their family. In the same Twp are the families of Phillip, 34, and Eleanor, 34, and son Francis, 10; and; Henry, 62, and Mary Huff, 61, with grandchildren (?) Mary Goodrich,7, and Harvey Goodrich,11.

My great great grandfather was Oliver Huff(Hough), born in
Monmouth Co. N.J. in 1813. His parents were William(b.1775)
and Charity Hough(b.1775)who settled in Monmouth about 1800,
moving from Brooklyn. All of Oliver's children stayed in
Monmouth except Abraham and George who moved to Pennsylvania
I am especially interested in the Brooklyn origins of
William and Charity.

I am descended from John P. Huff who lived in Clarke County Georgia (also Oconee, Oglethorpe, Telfair and Palding counties). John P. Huff lived from 1833 until sometime after 1907. He fought with Company C of 44th Infantry and the army of Northern Virginia. His wife's name was Lucy. His mother's name was Matilda(she lived with Lucy during the war) but I have no record of his father's name. John P. Huff had 1o children. Lorenia Eveline born 1855, Benjamin Franklin born 1857, John Thomas born 1858, Henry Marion born 1860, George born 1867, William born 1868, Cora born 1871, Edmound born 1873, Oscar born 1875 and buried in Palding county Ga., and Joel born 1879. Benjamin Franklin Huff moved to Texas sometime after 1887. He is my great grandfather and I am expecially interested in him. I have a great deal more Huff information on this family line in Georgia.
John P. had a brother or cousin named Doctor (or possibly David) who served with him in the war and was captured with him at Spotsylvania.

Phebe Emily MOREDICK (b 1840) married William B. HOUGH (b 1835 Ohio) 20 Jun 1861 in Ohio. Have not been able to find William's parentage. He had an older sister named Sarah. They claimed their father was from England and their mother from Virginia.

Phebe Emily was from Belmont County. They moved to Appanoose County, Iowa briefly in the 1870s then to Boulder, Colorado before 1880. William B. died in Boulder at age 70. Do not have Phebe Emily's death date yet. Children: James Willard HOUGH (1862-91), Tabitha Emily HOUGH (1863-98), Charles Magee HOUGH (1864), Mary Alice HOUGH (1865), Robert Malligan HOUGH (1870). There were also four others who died as infants. Would love to exchange info.

Great site!

Am just starting research on origins of our branch of Huff family reputed to have emigrated from Wesley, Maine to NW Wisconsin in 1800's. Grandfather's name was Charles P. Huff, born 4-13-1861. Family history never was certain of his nationality, but always was asserted to have been "Yankee" and that they went back a long time. No research ever done at Wesley, Maine courthouse since it was said to have "burned down" with all records gone.

Any assistance or knowledge on this subject will be appreciated.

Hi,
I've always loved my last name- I realized that if I ever
married again, I would keep it. I left a message before, but
it doesn't seem to be on there. Anyway- I am one of two
adopted daughters of Paul and Marci Hoff. My father's family
is: James, Arthur, and Charles (his father) Hoff, who have
children- Peter and Philip Hoff and Charles and Katie Hoff.
Most of us live in MN, SD, and ID. We are related to the
Santas by marriage. If that helps at all- I hope it does!
Oddly, there are a lot of Hoffs in my city, barely any of
which I'm related to. My father is Norwegian and Scottish
or Scots-Irish. He doesn't know for sure. My grandfather's
family came from Scotland, grandmother's from Norway.
Since I am adopted, however, I can't rightly say I'm any of
those things. Even so- I am a Hoff, and proud of it!
-Amy Hoff

an Amos Hough. The line I'm looking for today are the parents of Elizabeth Hough b. Kershaw Co., SC
10/12/1832. She married James Richard Thorne. I learned that Elizabeth's parents were Amos and Louise L Hough. This may mean Louise was a Hough who married a Hough. Can anyone shed light on this particular Amos and Louise l. Hough?

After reviewing your guest book (not even into the site yet) I believe that I found something to help me with my research. Two messages posted by Tyson Huff seem to be of my line. Thank you for maintaining a page. Sharing information on the Internet is a wonderful thing for a genealogist. Through pages similar to this one I have found people researching other lines of my family and that has been more help than any other source so far (it is hard to look up census records when you don't even know what state).
Very grateful
Sheila

I have information that Mont Herbert HUFF was born 19 AUG 1882 Success, Texas, MO and that his parents names are Jacob HUFF and Lurinda LINK. I do not know where they were born or where they were married.

The info that I have begins with John born Yorkshire, West Riding, England in 1642. He came to America with his son John and John's wife, Hannah Rossell, on the ship Friendship. The family apparently settled in Buck county, PA. My gggrandmother was Rebecca Hough born May 24, 1828 in Ohio, daughter of Jonathon Hough born July 13, 1773 in New Britain, Bucks county, PA. I would love to exchange info with other members of the family. Yvonne

Great Site. My father, Harold Hough, was born in Pittsburgh around 1926 to Harold and Mabel Hough. My grandfather, a barber, was one of 7 or 8 siblings from the Manchester and Chorley UK area - they came to the US several years before my father was born (early 1920's). Harold and Mabel moved to Southern California in the 1940's but my father remained in Pittsburgh. As I understand, only 1 of my grandfather's brothers came to the US - would be interested in hearing in Hough's from the Manchester area who know of Harold Hough.

I hope you wiil attach the following to my previous message; The last Indian killing happened close to us. The family's name was Huff, and the old man happened to be some piece away from the house when the Indians showed up. There were too many for him to fight, so he ran off up the hill to get some help at his nearest neighbor's. There were too many Indians for them too, so they all set out and walked 15 miles through the night to our place. I remember them waking us up, and we spent the rest of the night talking about it. When we went over there the next morning, his wife and children were dead.

Woody] {Begin handwritten} FOLKSTUFF - RANGELORE {End handwritten} Phipps, Woody Rangelore Tarrant Co., Dist. #7 {Begin handwritten} [86?] {End handwritten} Page #1 (In Part) "The Indians really cut a figure in those days. While I never saw this happen, I saw the girl right after she was killed by the Indians. Sally Bette Bowman's father had a good many horses, and the Indians were awful bad about stealing them. In fact, oxen almost replaced horses for awhile there. Well, Sally Bette was up Deep Creek, watching the horse herd when a band of Indians showed up. {Begin handwritten} C12 - Texas {End handwritten} She knew her life was in danger, so she tried to get away from them. Since she was riding an awfully good horse, she almost made it. Those Indians chased her for three miles, then when she was right near a neighbor's house, they opened fire and killed her. The woman of the house happened to be looking, and she saw them scalp her after she fell from her horse. They couldn't catch the horse, though, and it went on to the ranch house. When her father saw the horse come into the yard without her, he and several men started out.to see what was wrong. They found the girl alright, but the Indians had gotten away with the horse herd. Dad took me over to the place and I saw the girl before she was taken home. "The last Indian killing happened close to us.

Max, Been working hard on John Gilbert Hough reportedly s/o Asa Hough, s/o Barnabas Hough. What information do you have ? I have a will of a Jacob Hough who willed his land to a John G. Hough who reportedly m. Margaret Embury. I believe that this person is assoc., with the Johaness Hough (prn'd Hoke) lineage. However, several authors give that marriage credit to the son of Asa Hough. I have tried every aspect of the children of Barnabas and nothing seems to work out as the sources point out as compared to the will of the Jacob Hough.

Hi Max and everyone looking for Hough info. If you can help, I'm looking for clues. Here's what I know: Daniel Jacob Hough and Mary Lee married (unknown date/location but estimated to be late 1890's in the Dakotas,NE,IA region) and had four children: Melvin Jacob Hough (born about 1900, based on a rough guess), Raymond, Margret, and Delores. I have no information about Marget or Delores. Melvin Jacob Hough married Catherine Oster (from North Dakota) and had two children: Daniel Jacob Hough (b October 1924 in Yankton Co., SD and named after his grandfather) and Dorothy Hough (b October 1930, presumably in Beloit, WI). The family traveled briefly to Minneapolis, MN before finally settling in Beloit, WI. Melvin and his brother Raymond ran some sort of carpentry/handy-man business in Beloit. However, a tragedy happened in the early 30's which left Melvin institutionalized in Rock Co., WI mental facilities until his death (suspected Insulin overdose) in the early 50's. He's buried in Eastlawn Cemetary in Beloit, WI. After the accident, Raymond left WI (family reports indicate he left (reportedly to CA) on "other than good" terms). Any names/places sound familiar to anyone? Thanks for the great website Max!

I also descend from the line of Johann "Hans" Adam Hoff who came from Friedelsheim, Rheinland-Phalz,Germany to Philadelphia, PA on November 30, 1730 on the ship Joyce. The Adam Hoff family farm in York Co. was located on the Codorus Creek about 12 miles from York on the southern edge of the present town of Spring Grove. Later generations of this family migrated to Tuscarawas County, Ohio (Godfrey Hoff and his wife Anna Elisabeth Hoffman) and their descendants lived in Sandy Township, Port Washington, Salem Township and others. These families are noted in the book, "History of Tuscarawas County", a reference book which can be ordered at your local library and used only at library branches (not for home use). A few other unrelated Huff/Hoff families are noted in this book also. This line changed the name from Hoff to Huff in the early 1800's and the branch I descend from migrated to Oregon and Washington state. Many of them still live there near the original areas of migration. My branch of this line also has these names in it: Seib, Strieby, Dalton, Farley, Edmonds, and Isbell. I have found several distant cousins online by joining the Roots Web surname lists and posting my family information on various web sites like this superb one!

A comment to let everyone know how helpful you are in helping out searchers. I am quite sure what you sent me today is My Fred Huff Woody. I know the family did have relatives in Fountain City. Also in the Lily Library of Indiana Univ. in the Neely Manuscript there is a book of poems owned by Emily Nixon so that tied up another loose end for me. Thank you.

Anyone who might be looking for any of the Haff family, and yes this includes Jurian Haff B.1610 in Augsburg, Germany D.Recife, Brazil 1653, both Holland and New york ancestors can be found in the Latterday Saints file under the Name of Rena Renfro, an ancestor of mine, whose mother' maiden name was Carrie Haff before she Married Millard Renfro. Rena married a John Hallett. By the way, if anyone knows how the Rodden family, Lewis family of Nebraska, the Thompson family of Ft. Scott, Kansas and President John Adams family lines link together, could you please let me in on it? My father, Douglas Lewis Thompson says we're related, but I can't seem to find the missing link, Your help would be much appreciated. Oh-check this out!Hauff to Haff, Hauff to Hoff,Hauff to Huff (or any other spellings of how these names sound to you in no particular order, of course!) This means I've got more work cut out for me than I thought! Happy hunting, everybody, and WHAT A MASTERPIECE TIS SITE IS!!!

Great site, and so much information. I have started some research on my own Haugh family and finding so many variations of spelling of name. We pronounce it like Haff or Huff. Anyone have any information on the Haugh family in PA. My father came from Pennsylvania. Joseph D. Haugh born in Harrisburg Township in 1913 according to my birth certificate. That is about all I know except he had brothers named Harold, Harry, Phillip and sister Grace and others but don't remember names. We lived in Nortern Florida, Jacksonville and worked on East Coast Railroad. Also family may have come from Germany at some point, through England or Scotland, not sure. Also family was Catholic. Any help appreciated. Thanks Richard Joseph Haugh Tacoma WA richpatrol@earthlink.net

Enjoyed reading the guestbook. The HUFF that was my ancestor was: Florence M. Todd b: 1873, Arkansas married George R. Huff. I believe that Florence was the daughter of Harriet Matilda Neal that married Andrew Jackson "Jack" Todd. They lived on farms in Wright and Washington counties Missouri. Their children were: Alba, Lucy, Charles and Elmer. Alby (we called Uncle Alby) was the one that I knew the best. He lived in Attica, Kansas and owned a little "fix it" shop, and used to visit my parents often. Do not know who he had married, but he did have a daughter, Cleda. Usually when I find anything in the genealogy, it's typed Hoff, but we always knew them as HUFF.

I will subscribe to your newsletter soon. I am just pleased to finally find a family for my one lone Huff. Anyone wishing to find data on the Werts/Wertz/Virts line can find it on my web site along with a whole bunch of other German, Dutch, Scotch and English ancestors. Interesting that many came from the same areas in PA, MD and VA that the Huffs did. Good luck and I'll keep checking back.

Jacks, from Randolph County, Alabama (1860s) who had 2 sons, George (I think) and Thomas Franklin; later moved to Georgia, remarried, with my grandfather (Dave) a product of that union. Think Jim's parents were Young and Judith Jacks, supposedly kin to the James boys and/or Younger brothers. Also, searching for history of Pyle family...supposedly started out from France as dePeall, thru Wales where pronunciation was changed to Pyle. My maternal ggrandfather Charles Hemphill Pyle married a Lou Amy (or Amy Lou) Putman or Putnam (Cherokee) whose first marriage was to a Knighten. Would appreciate ANY information, however small.

I'm not certain your Amos is the same as mine but I can now research some more based on your response. Your work is invaluable to those of us seeking knowledge of our Past generations! If anyone has any information prior to Wilson C Hough b 3/25/1834 in SC (probably old Camden District)d 5/5/1905 in NC (probably Union Co (Monroe?)) m Sarah Carolina Horton 9/6/1855 in Camden District SC, I would be most grateful for any thing you can share. I know Wilson's father was Amos Hough, but have no information about Amos or prior generations. I truly did not know there were so many of us Hough's around!

During a recent trip to my very with-it 87 year old Aunt Erma Cornell, she expressed a desire to do more background on her grandmother Amelia Ann Hough; so I asked Max to help me identify Amelia's grandparents. I knew Amelia's parents were James Hough and Jane Randolph. Max was very quickly helpful and gave me a great deal of background, which I have since mailed up to my aunt. My husband and I helped her with her e-mail, but I felt more certain with snail mail. Amelia Ann was born in 1849 to James T. Hough and Jane Randolph (possibly Frances Jane Randolph says another source). James T. Hough was the son of John Hough and Pleasant Purcell. Amelia Hough married Milton Clapham. According to information at Heartland Estates website, "after they were married they resided near Boone, Iowa. In the fall of 1869, Frank Hough (Amelia's brother) traveled to Kansas" and staked a claim. The next year Milton, Amelia, their first born, and Amelia's parents arrived with all their stock and belongings and settled on adjoining claims. Milton and Amelia had eight children: Francis Malvina, Arthur Thomas, William A., Estella, Bertram, Daisy Anna, Edna F., and Waldo Randolph. My grandmother is Daisy Ann Clapham. Daisy married Milton Addison Burdick. They had six children. My father was the oldest: Verne Addison Burdick. My aunt is the only girl, Erma Daisy Burdick Cornell. Thanks again Max. Beth

I wrote this in answer Miles Ray Hough's quary. Perhaps it will fill gaps in other peoples queries too. I would appriciate more information also. I'm Gail, Leola Hough's daughter. Her PParents were Miles lamb Hough and Violet Wood. Miles Lamb was a fun-loving, hard working, kind rancher. their ranch was a thousand+ acres on the site of the old town of Anglan, Okanogan, WA. We are presently living in Casper, Wy. and have had an opertunity to go to the sites where Miles was born and find out more about our facinating heratage. His father was Willis S. Hough. Willis was born in Dec. 22, 1860 in Elk City, Montgomery County KS. He married Addie Belle Reece 10/10 1887 in Bighorn WY. He died Feb. 3,1942. I question Addie's Natave American hearitage. I've not substanciated that one way or the other, yet. Willis's obituary paints a very dinamic, interesting person. He was a pioneer of the west.

This site is truly a tremendous asset to anyone involved in the task of researching the Huff/Hough lineage. We have just recently begun such efforts and have a long way to go. My own information is quite sparse but hopefully with effort it will grow. My Father was Miles Ray Hough (SR) born in Big Horn Wyoming. (His siblings: Carl, Leola, Vern & Dale) My Grandfather was Miles Lamb Hough, believed to have owned a saloon in Big Horn Wyoming; known to have siblings, one of which may have been named Buster, another possibly Charlie. I do know that Miles Lamb served in the Army in WWI. He died in Tonasket Washington around 1950-53. My great grandfather's name is unknown. All that I know is that he was married to an Indian woman (name unkown) and that he pioneered an area in Washington state known as Squirrel Creek. Miles Lamb was married to a Violet Wood, daughter of Ray Wood (birthplace unkown but known to have died in Gunnison, Colorado in the 1960's, one of the 3 co-founders of Casper, Wyoming. Violet had sisters, also named after flowers but I do not have their names. Also, I do remember my father saying that Emerson Hough was a cousin. I look forward to any help anyone can offer! Good hunting everyone!

I did a web search for Abiga Hough and found Granville Hough's Article in your newsletter about his "non-existence. Then I went to the next link and found the following from a woman in Seattle: I am wanting information about James McIntryre that lived there in the 1760's and reportedly left with a group to settle in present day Greene County, PA. Before 1781 it would still be considered the VA and from 1781 until 1800 it was Washington County, PA. Other men reportedly in this group were Abel McCullough, John Horn, John Hardtman, Jacob Wiever, John Watson, and Abiga Hough. John Stickles, Enock O'Brine, and James McIntyre settled Teegardenm now Millsboro, in September 1770. So, maybe Abiga did exist after all???

Hello, I am looking for a long lost cousin of my grandmother's, Milton Hough or Milton Huff. My Grandmother's name is Florence Corron she was Florence Lucia and her knickname growing up was "Jo". She has lived in Clinton County New York all of her life. She grew up in Chazy New York and she now resides in Beekmantown New York. She says she hasn't seen or heard from him for over 50 years. It seems he was crossing a fence with his brother. His brother pushed his rifle under the fence or something like that and the rifle caught on a twig or something and discharged killing his brother. She says he left after the funeral and has never been heard from since. She would like to know if he is still alive and if so, where he is. Thank you Wendy F. Darling

Does anyone have any additional information about him. I would like to try to nominate him for the Basketball Hall of Fame. He is one of the forgotten greats of basketball.

Hello Max, What an amazing site you have invented! I searched through all the interesting messages but have not encountered information on my German HUFF ancestors.....yet. My great-grandfather Adam HUFF was born 16 May 1829 in Hesse, Germany. He came to Canada with his parents and two brothers: Johannes and Henry and perhaps asister, Elizabeth. They settled in Bridgeport, Waterloo Co., Ontario. He married Veronica S. Seibert in 1852. They had nine children....6 girls and 3 boys. I'm hoping that someone on this site can give me a clue as to the German origin of the HUFF family so I can solve that mysterious puzzle onceand for all. Thank you for a fantastic genealogical tool.....you are certainly helping a lot of HUFFs to make some great discoveries.

I have just learned that when my great great grandfather John Huff went to California during the gold rush, he took 2 brothers with him. One, William, stayed in California and the family lost touch with him. Is anyone out there descended from a William Huff who would have been in California during the gold rush (1849)? William was older than John who was born in 1832. Both were born in Georgia.

Hi Max, I found your web site while searching for my son-in laws mothers' ancestors. Its a great site and I would appreciate any help I could get from all those Houghs out there. The lady in question was born Dorothy Hough on the 8th July 1934 in Westminster Hospital, London, UK. I think her parents home was in Southwick, Sunderland(near Newcastle on Tyne). Fathers name was John and mothers was Florence Foster. Grandparents were Robert Foster and Isabell(maiden name unknown)also from Southwick, Sunderland. She married John Turner at St.Marys, Hadleigh, Suffolk, UK on the 24th March 1956. She also had a stepfather by name of Albert Sutton who I think was born 8th October 1825 in Birmingham, UK. How she came to have a stepfather is unknown but she was brought up as a Sutton and did not know that her real name was Hough until she had to obtain a birth certificate to be able to marry John. If anyone knows of any sites where I can research my own ancestors I would appreciate an email from them. Thanks, I will be back to look at your great site again.

Hi Max, a big thanks for the information on my branch of the Huff family and your words of encouragement. My g grandfather Lewis Huff had stopped in PA for a long time and I could not tie him in anywhere. Then after stumbling onto Lewis in Bradford County, PA in the 1850 cencus I contacted Max and I believe he has got me tied into the Isaac Huff and Elizabeth ?? family. Isaac goes back to N.J. born in 1782 and he left there and came to Bradford County, Standing Stone along with his brothers Henry and Samuel and sisters Isabella and Martha. The 1850 cencus listed these people. Isaac Huff age 68 b, N.J. Elizabeth Huff age 48 b, PA William Huff age 46 b, PA Amanda Huff age 2? b, PA Joseph Huff age 18 b, PA George Huff age 15 b, PA John Huff age 13 b, PA Sarah Huff age 10 b, PA Lewis Huff age 8 b, PA Does any of this fit in with anyone else who has more information to help confirm this information, please send an e-mail to me at huffdl@clover.net Thanks again for your generosity Max Best Regards

Searching for parents of Benjamin HOUGH, supposedly born in 1756, in Loudoun Co. VA. Married, in Loudoun Co. 1784, to Rachel OR Rebecca Greene FAIRCHILD. Moved to OH in 1785. Had the following children, all born in OH. William, Samuel, John, Michael, Paton, Ashford, and Rachel, who married her cousin, a MALLET, in Steubenville, OH. Casper Yost's " History And Genealogy Of Casper Yost The Palatine And His Descendants" incorrectly states that Benjamin was the son of John HOUGH and Sarah JANNEY. They had a son in 1756 named MAHLON, but there are NO records anywhere for Benjamin. Can anyone solve this mystery for me? Benjamin HOUGH died in Sept. 1819, in Chillicothe, OH. WHO were his PARENTS?

Hee, hee! It's no wonder that nobody ever pronounces our last name correctly ("Huff"), since we all pronounce it differently! What a great site! I think our family was originally Huff in Germany, then someone went to England and became Hough, and I think my g-g-g grandfather came here. I'm not sure where we settled...my grandpa, Harry William Hough, grew up in Kansas, and most of the Houghs that I know I'm related to live in Kansas or Oklahoma.

To anyone who is visiting this site, let me tell you it is "top notch". Thanks to Max I was able to confirm some information and also find some leads. Now, for one more favor from Max... I'm puzzled about the lineage of Peter J. Hough. His father (for certain) was Joseph Hough, b. about 1815 in SC, d. August 27, 1891 in Luverne, AL, m. Elizabeth White. According to your note to me on this lineage, Joseph's father was also named Joseph Hough (or Hogh). Is this the same Joseph Hough who was born to John Hogg and Margaret ??? about 1780 in Newberry, SC? This is the only instance I can find of a Hogh/Hogg/Hough named Joseph born in SC to a John H. in a date range that makes any sense, BUT in this instance my research shows he died in 1789, making this guy only 9 yrs. old! Something is not adding up. Can you help sort it out??? Thanks a bunch! Bill

Just visiting... this is a great site for future reference in my search for Hough ancestors. My great-grandfather was Peter J. Hough of Union Springs, AL, USA, b. April 27, 1840. He was a Confederate veteran, 15th Alabama Infantry. Our family has always pronounced this surname phonetically as "how" instead of "huff". I was wondering if anyone has done any research into the origin of this pronunciation ... how common is it, and is it restricted to a certain region? Thanks for the good work!

I am related to "Big Valentine Huff" Sr. he is my 6th great grandfather. The info I have on him and his children is limited, so any help would be appreciated. I don't have his wife's name at all. I know their crop was corn, though. I found his son in law Charles Hunter's birthday and his will listing his wife and children, so if anyone needs that, contact me. I mostly have all other info on Valentine Jr.'s children and so forth, but NOT exact birth and death dates. If I could eliminate the word "circa" from all of my records, how happy I would be. Hope to find some answers here. God bless and happy searching to you all.

I am collaterally related to a Huff/Hoff family of NJ. I am descended from the Rutger Johnson Family thru his son Garrett thru his son Robert. Rutger Johnson's(d 1748)daughter Eve is reported to have married John Huff son of Derrick Huff and Susan Yates. Garrett's (d 1766) daughter Ann marrried Cornelius Hoff. Robert's daughter Rebecca married (1806) William Hoff in Randolph Co VA. This Robert Johnson family left Hopewell, Hunterdon Co NJ about 1770. I am looking for any information that would relate to when & why they left Hunterdon Co NJ and where they were until Robert Johnson buys land in Randolph Co VA ca 1788. Information remembered by the Robert Johnson descendants I am in contact with have few records which indentifies where this Robert Johnson family lived from 1770-1788 If you have any thing in your data that would help in this search please email me?

Great page! I'm searching for the parents and siblings of a ZERILDA HOUGH/HUFF who I'm told came from the Paducah area of MCCRACKEN CO, KY. On the 1850 census she, her husband JOSEPH W. KERBY and family are in FRANKLIN CO, KY. By 1855 this family is in Tarrant Co, TX. Would appreciate any information anyone has about Zerilda's ancestors.

Hello Max, What a wonderful site!! I just e-mailed you with basically the same info I'm going to post here. Maybe someone out there will be able to help! My great-grandmother, Lillian A Ward (1856-1925) was married to a Mr. Stevens who died. She, Lillian Stevens, then married Ellis W Hoff on Aug 25, 1881 in Rice Co MN. In the family Bible he is listed as Elis Hoff, born 1851 and died on Feb 8,1896, and buried in Castle Rock Township in Dakota Co MN. Lillian and Ellis had 3 daughters: Maude (1885-1949), Lillian (1891-1918), and Vera (1893-1955) plus a half sister from Lillian's first marriage, Gertrude Stevens (1880-? no info on her). Any info on Ellis Hoff would be greatly apprecated. Or on Gertrude. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Max I was just browsing when I found your web page and was amazed at how many Houghs had responded, so I thought that what information I have got may be of some interest to some of the Hough clan. My g-g-g grandfather Charles Hough was born in Scotland in the 18th century I believe he was a stone mason his son Maurice Hough was also a stone mason he fought in world war 1 and lost his speech through shell shock. He did however regain is speech after world war 2 by the doctors breaking finger method I am told he had brothers and other relatives in London. some time after world war 1 the Hough family had a brick company called Hough & Co this was stamped on the bricks one of which is on display of EH Smith builders merchant brick library at Shirley in Birmingham. The brick company was in Kings Rd, Kings Heath, Birmingham. This quarry was filled in and built on and one of the roads was named Hough Rd which is there to this day. Maurice had sons one of which was my grandfather also named Maurice Hough he was a bricklayer and my grandmother Vera Hough lived in Stirchley Birmingham they had four children Betty, John (my father), Margeret and Alan. Maurice my grand father was a flight seargent in the Royal Air Force he fought in world war 2 as a rear gunner in a Lancaster bomber where he was killed in action in 1944 at the age of 35. This is all the information I have at this time but if any body has somthing else my father and I would love to here about it.

I would like to my ancestry on my fathers side. His name was Ray James, born in Newport, TN. His father's name was Riley James, born in 1894 somewhere in North Carolina. His parents brought him to Newport and I think his mother died enroute when he was only about 3 weeks old. I was told that he was raised by an aunt and his father, Alan James, left him there. I have no idea where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm a descendent of William Huff and Elizabeth Lundy of Brunswick Co. VA whose children William Jr, James, Thomas, Daniel, Silva moved to Handcock County GA around 1800. Thomas's (my line)children were Whitfield, Lundy, Harrison, Ranson, Silva, and Franklin (my line) b1801 and married Anne Boman. My father Charles Adam Huff has compiled a good bit about these lines. He's listed in your index at 111 now 142 Northampton Rd. Leesburg, GA 31763. He is happy to share any information and is looking to fill in gaps in what he has collected. He's particularly interested in Franklin's son Jefferson Jackson Huff (his grandfather)who married Epsey Jane Pierson(sp?) and details about the Pierson/Pearson line. If anyone has any information about this line you can contact me at huffstep@hotmail.com or my father at the above address. Thanks. Great site!

Wow! This is certainly amazing. My maiden name is Hough (pronounced Huff). Actually my legal name was Mary Catherine Hough; thanks to my mom have always gone by Missy, just to complicate things more. My father is William Clark Hough, born in Nebraska in 1932. I have two brothers, Thomas Clark Hough born in 1968 (Tom and I were both adopted into the Hough family) and Adam William Hough born in South Dakota in 1981. My Dad and Adam still live in SD now. Oh, I was born in SD, also. My grandfather was M. Clark Hough (Melvin) and my grandmother was Wilma V. Hough. Her maiden name was Hoffie. I forget where they were born, but fairly certain somewhere in the Mid-West as well. I think my great-grandfather was a Thomas Clark Hough also. Well, I was just going to say hi. That's all the info I can think of for now. VERY interesting site!

My grandfather was Frederick Lincoln (Laws) Huff (b.6-7-1893,Del Rio, TN. - d.2-11-55, Ennis, TX.) His mother was Elizabeth Huff who married James Laws in 1888, although her 4 children were raised as Huff's. I would love to know why!! She is the daughter of Rhoda Justice Huff and John C. Huff. Would love more information on John C. Have gotten two different stories. Can you help?? Thanks again form a Texas Huff too. Sonna

Thank you so much for the new information on Seeley and all others brought to light. I do have a few corrections for you and anyone else that is researching any of these people. The spelling is Seeley N. Huff. Margaretta Elizabeth Greer was his wife, not Margaret Storm. The spelling is on his death certificate and other records I have. Margaretta used a shortened version of her name, Margaret for most of her life. Seeley and Margaretta's children I also have a lot of information on, especially my grandfather. However, I do not see Richard (Dick) or Mable. Norman and Albert are all new. I will be interested in finding out any birth and death dates for all of Seeley's children that are of record except Lee's.

My mother and I never had a problem about my adoption, questions..?, plenty. I finally met my father in I think 1983 or 84. I was with him only twice before he passed away. What I saw of that part of my family, I haven't been back or contacted them since. But I would like to know more about the Hough history. My adopted mothers maiden name was FOOTE. I'd like to know if my blood relatives are connected in any way. You have my e-mail give me a whistle when you can.., yes I'm listed in the Foote book. Mike J.

Max, great site. I just discovered it and just recently found out I have a Huff ancester. My maternal great grandmother's name was Anna B. Huff. I recently got a copy of my grandfather's birth certificate. He was Noble A. Pace. His parents were listed as James K. Pace and Anna B. Huff. He was born on December 29, 1900 in Urbana, OH. James died on October 27, 1931 in Greene Co., OH. That is all I know about James and Anna. Family lore said Anna was of American Indian descent. There is a picture of her in the possession of an aunt that would bear that out only as far as dark hair and prominent nose. Otherwise dressed in typical Victorian ladies attire. Would appreciate it if you might have any information on Anna.

Just found your site Max and when you have time I am searching for information on my father Donald LeRoy Huff, my grandfather Lee Greer Huff and my great grandfather Seeley M. Huff from Hubbard, Ohio. They all lived there from sometime in the mid to late 1800's until 1938. My father and grandfather then moved to the Burbank area and worked at Lockeed during WW2 where my father meet my mother. Mr father was born March 9, 1914 in Hubbard, my grandfather was born in 1893 in Hubbard and I have the date along with his marriage date in 1912 in Hubbard. The real tough one is finding when Seeley was born. Seeley died in 1932 in Ohio. He and his wife, Margaretta were born in Ohio but I do not know where. I have just found the death certificate for Seeley and sent away for it. Oh, my father was an only child but my grandfather had some sisters and brothers. I have some names such as Richard,Mable,Walt and more. They might tie in with some of the other folk on your site. I have a bunch more info so please get in touch! Thank You!

I am researching the line of Dr. James Huff and Obedience Koger's through their son James Jr. I think my great great great grandfather Isaac was James Jr's son. Isaac married Elizabeth Lewis in 1839. I think that an Elisha was Isaac's younger brother. This group was from Lee and Wise County Virginia and Harlan County, Kentucky. I would appreciate any information concering James Jr. and his children and also any information concerning the parents of Dr. James Huff

Hi Max - I'm from the South African branch of the Hough clan. Our family originally came from Scotland. According to my Mom, my great-great-great-great-granfather, George Hough, went to South Africa with Revs Andrew Murray and George MacGregor. His son was James Hough. His son was Jacobus Petrus Frans Hough. His son was Johannes Hendrik Valentinus Hough. His son, my maternal grandfather, was Johannes Hendrik Hough, born 1883. My mother was the eldest of 12 (living) children born between 1911 and 1930. There were seven girls and five boys. The boys were: Johannes Hendrik, born 1914; Jacobus Petrus Mynhardt, born 1917; Michiel Andries, born 1919; Pieter Jozua, born 1924; and Gabriel Emerson, born 1926. I don't know if George Hough had any brothers, and if they emigrated to the US.

Your Huff line is different then mine. My ancestors came from Holland, arriving in the 1600's. They mostly settled in the New York area, and in the mid 1700's to 1900's, lived in upstate NY. There are still descendents of the family in Holland. The spelling there is van der Huff. The van der means 'family of'. If anyone wants information on my line, please contact me. My ancestors were Jacob, and Petter Huff.

I have always wanted to find the origins of my family...you can imagine the excitement of finding this web page...I loved hearing the stories about my great grandfather being a traveling medicine man and marring my great grandmother (14) at the ripe old age of 40. The family joke is that Benjamin traded a bottle of his tonic for his wife (my great grandmother) Lizze. it seems as though most of you are looking for the northern states...I would be more interrested in the South Georgia area where my families roots point too. I am told that my family name use to be Hough but was changed to Huff...I do not know why...I am also told that we are of the English decent...not german. Sorry for rambling but I have not gotten this much info on the Huff family since my grandmother past away a few years ago.

Hi Max! Great Page! Looking for my long lost histroy. My grandfather was was Burksville, KY (Roy Huff) and his wife Daisy had 3 sons and moved to Indiana, in the Indpls area. Sons names are Jim, John and Lee Hope you can help me out on this one, last Huff tale that was told to me years ago was My grandfather Roy was sent to Jail for bootlegging moonshine in Burksville, KY, he was sent out on a chain gang, a few months later supposably the Burksville court house burned and all records of the crime were destroyed. Roy and others heard the news and...well lets just say there sentance was cut short, not by the wardens liking. Couple weeks later he was home with his family doing the family business and state troopers showed up notifying him the court house had burned and they couldn't do anything to him but they would be back in 24 hours, if the Huff family was still there they would all be sorry...So its told they packed up and headed North, winding up in Indiana, the only place for jobs at the time. Like I say thats all I have and thats the story thats told by my father about the Huff name..Please tell me thats not all. circleh1@hotmail.com

Max did it again. He found some HOUGH's I've been looking for. Here is the authroitative source for all HOUGH's/HUFF's. Anyone looking for Hough's/Huff's in Wisconsin: Brown County Library in Green Bay has the books: EARLY FAMILIES OF WALLINGFORD, CONNECTICUT and HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD by Charles Henry Stanley Davies. Another great resource center is the Winnebago County Library in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It has several books on the men who fought in wars from Connecticut. Plus all the volumes of the DAR set. The Brown County Library has 120 volumes of the NEW ENGLAND HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY along with the index for the 120 volumes. The State Historical Library has a copy of Early families of Wallingford, Connecticut and several volumes of the books by Granville Hough.

Hi Max, A few weeks ago sent an e-mail with list Hough's i didn't know about. There are two more that am interested in finding: they are GUY HOUGH and a Walter HOUGH. No idea who their parents were were. HoweverGUY m a Hannah Bailey and lived in Bozrah, CT. WALTER had a son by the name of Samuel Lockwood. Walter m a Martha Lockwood.

I found your site most impressive and very interesting. I am reseaching the surnames McCLURE and ASHBRIDGE who both farmed on the north shore of the Susquehanna River, about 1 1/2 miles up river from Pine Creek. James McCLURE was born c1788-1861 and his father was William McCLURE b:? and his mother was Mary Ashbridge 1766-1841.I am looking for any info. or where to obtain any info. or vital records on William McClure. I'm hoping to drive down to that area this spring to do research. I have found data in "History of Lycoming Co." and "The Ashbridge Book" by Wellington Ashbridge. Where should I start and search this spring? Open for any comment from anyone. Thanks...FRANK

Max I just picked up death certificates for Lewis C. Huff and his wife Dorothy M. (Bowers) Huff. They confirm Lewis's father is Isaac Huff and the dates of birth and death are correct. Parents of Dorothy, Joseph Bowers and Mary Yearlings from Ohio are correct, both certificates were confirmed by Lewis's daughter Estella Barringer, apparently she did not know who her grandmother was because it plainly states under those questions "don't know". I believe Lewis moved to Ohio from Pa. and married Dorothy Bowers in Meigs county, I just have to find the proof!! what a find!!!

I,too, was thrilled with your web site.My grandfather's family came from the Mohawk Valley to Alabama. I don't know what my great grandfather's name was. My grandfather, William came from Alabama to Texas. He settled in Gary, or Carthage, in Panola county. That is in East Texas. His sons were James Marshall, (my father) Curtis, Dave, Wren and two daughters Myrtis, and another one they lost track of and never knew what happened to her. Curtis settled in Shreveport as did Myrtis. Dave settled in Houston, Wren in Carthage. Any one having information concerning the Texas Houghs, I would appreciate hearning from you. I have also heard from a Bryon Hough that decended from North Carolina. He now lives in Corpus Christi. Growing up, I too did not have any relatives other than my family. My dad, James Marshall, Had four children. I am the youngest. Would love to hear from you. Thanks

Max, Thank you so very much for an excellent web page. After post ing my note more than a year ago,I still continue to get information. I'm a gggggg-grandson of Leonard Huff who arrived in Botetourt County,Virginia before they started keeping records in 1770.Have several references to his "surveying a road over Bent Mt." Latest find says that on 15 March 1786 he was ruled tax exempt "for age and infirmity". I'm not sure when he left here but am still looking for anybody with concrete evidence as to where he came from and where he went. If I can help anybody at the Fincastle Courthouse (Bot-a-tot)Botetourt please let me know and I'll try. Thank you again.About 75 Huffs gathered 12 September 1999 for our annual Huff Reunion in Cosby,TN. We all say a fond "Howdy" to our cousins. Jerry Huff

It was nice to see so many Hough's. I was the only one were I grew up, and no one could pronouce my name right. I went through basic training bieng called "hoe" because our name is different. I'm proud of what I've learned so far about our family, and I'm alway willing to learn more. For those who want to know what or family crest is... It is a silver shield with a solid black bar going from the upper left to the lower right. (as you look at it) It has a knight's helmet un top facing left. Some family variations have a wolf head atop the helmet. Also depending on the branch the fringe around the shield is either blue, or red. These colors though are just added for color, they are not a part of the crest itself.

My grandfather's name was Benjamin Franklin Hough, and he had several brothers and sisters including Arthur and Port. He was born near Whitsett, PA which is on Jacob's Creek. Thanks to this web site, I have found that Jacobs Creek is named after Jacob (Hofe) Hough. So it seems very likely that my grandfather is a descendent of this Whiskey Rebellion leader. My mother's name is Blanche Hough and I am currently going through her records to find more information on the family. I have already found my grandfather's (he was born in 1894) World War I discharge papers and several other documents. His wife's (my grandmother) name was Susan Beattie. I will post more information as I find it and am anxious to hear from anyone who could help me in my search. Thank you.

Hi Max; I'm still working on the info. you gave me on my Great Grandparents Jaemes E. Mc Gowen and Mary J. Hough. At this point I'm convinced every other Hough girl must have been named Mary and every other male Mc Gowen was named James. I'm convinced that the Mary J. Hough and James E. Mc Gowen married in 1854 in Natchitoches LA. are my greatgrand parents but the Mary Mc Cowan buried in the St John's cemetery is not my Great grandmother Besides the birthdate I made some calls this morning and found out that my Mary J. is buried in the Santa Ana CA. cemetery in an unmarked grave in a different section from the rest of the family except her son. I'm wondering about Mary the daughter of Larkin Hough in the 1850 LA. census. the age is right but the state of birth is different Mississipi instead of Alabama. I haven't been able to find anything further on Larkin. Do you have him anywhere else? Thanks again for all your help.

Seeking help with husband's Hough line. Cemetery records tell us gg grandfather Charles H. Hough was son of Truman Hough and Mary Powell. Believe Truman may have been in Floyd, New York Oneida County. Charles was born 5/2/1835, perhaps in Floyd. Floyd's records for that time period were destroyed by fire. Any leads greatly appreciated.

Hi Max; I just located your website after looking at a microfilm o Granville W. Houghs books about the Houghs from La. and Alabama. You really have a wealth of info just in the queries and comments sent in. I have wondered about my Great Grandmother Mary J. Hough. I see in one place that a Mary J. Hough married a James E. Mc Gowen 16 Nov. 1854 in Natchitoches Parish LA. and in another place I see that Mary Ellen Hough married James Mc Cowan. My Grandfather was James E. Mc Gowen Born in Mississipi in Abt 1837. I'm wondering if Mary J. and Mary E. are the same person. They are both listed as being born in Alabama. Also I was wondering why my grandfather would have Died in Tulare Co. Calif. when he lived in Orange Co. Ca. but I see in Dr. Houghs' writings there where Houghs in the Tulare Co. so maybe he went to live with one of them in his last years. He is listed in the 1900 Orange Co. Ca census with Mary J. but in the 1910 census he is listed but not she. I was at the Santa Ana Cemetery yesterday and there are 2 unmarked graves. The director said one was a James A. who died in 1918 and I think the other Is probably Mary J. I am new at this so I forget to find out a lot of things. I guess I get too excited over anything I find and forget to follow up at that time. The only thing anyone knew when I started out was that she was of Welch descent and he had served in the Confederate army so I don't feel too bad as I just started last Sept. Sites like yours and the LDS family history center near home have really helped Thanks Again. Deane Mc Gowen

I do have some information dating beyond that point, but it has not been proven. This you may already know, as I sent my info to Granville several years ago.

So glad to learn that there are other HAUGH to HAWKs out there. Had learned just in the past 7 or 8 years that we used to be spelled HAUGH, pronounced HAWK, and the spelling was changed for "ease". Never found any truth to the rumor until this year, when I may have found the HAUGH link. My oldest known relative, George HAWK, b1833, MD; m bef 1858 to a Caroline, may be the same person as one George Peter HAUGH, b 1833, Carroll Co., MD, son of Samuel and Maria HAUGH> My George moved to Va, W VA, and then settled in Southern Ohio. If anyone knows of George HAUGH/HAWK b 1833 in MD, please contact me. I've got lots of information on his descendents!!!

I am looking for a Paul Way Huff who married his second wife Mary McRae of Aberdeen Scotland (B9/11/1849 D1882) I believe they had a son Colin McRae Huff. He may have had a son named William. This should all eventually lead to a William Piggott - who had 2 sons William and Morley Piggott. Morley had a son Colin McRae Piggott.

I stumbled onto this WEBsite and think it is great. I have been researching my Great-grandfather Albert Green HOUGH. He married Ella Rhoda Bohannon 23 Dec 1908. I do that his parents were John HOUGH and Martha Wilson. Any information that anyone could supply would be greatly appreciated. I have bookmarked this site so I can come back and read more of the comments in the guestbook. Diane

Haugh, pronounced hock, because it is of scots gaelic origin, does not bear any geneological, or entymological, or whatever, relationship to the other family names on your website. The name originated in Scotland but somehow got to be Irish; perhaps the Haughs fled rather than convert after the defeat of Montrose.

Cousin's wife sent me information going back to Barnabas Hough of Canada and CT/MA up to the children of Asa H. Hough. His son William Bell Hough is my g-g-grandfather. Really helped last month doing research on my family. There found more information going back to Edward Hough of Cheshire, England. Plus while there found lists of all children of many of ancestors and descendents of William Hough (b: about 1683). Thank You. Have a great uncle who disapearred. Was WILLIAM JUDD HOUGH, b 1866, Stirling, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada. Father was Daniel McAthur Hough. Mother was Margaret (Leggett) Hough of Marmora, Hastings Co., Ontario, Canada. William used his middle name frequently. Move either to NY or PA in early 1890's or 1900's. Any help would be appreciated.

It's me again Max, with the still elusive parents of Jesse Huff (b.1828) from Wayne Co. Ky. But because you supplied me with the name of Jesse wife, Elizabeth Abott. I have found that she descended from a Cherokee Chief named Doublehead of the Eastern Cherokees Tribe. I just wanted to thank you again for helping me find new family members and if I find Jesse's parents I'll let you know. Also, I really enjoy your newsletter! Angie Goecke

You certainly have a excellant site and for once, it is one that is easy to follow and read. I look forward to keeping in touch with you and the organization. My ancestor was Daniel (Rev.) Hoff (c.1747-c.1802) who married in 1769 a Laura Titus in Hunterdon County, NJ. Daniel later married again to a Susan/Sophia Moffitt c. 1772.

Max, I am Lt Col Paul Hough, USAF, stationed at RAF Lakenheath. My father is Fay F. Hough, born in Albion, PA, son of Sumner Hough. Before I leave England this summer, I'm going to visit more "Hough" villages. Been to Houghton Hall, New Houghton, and Houghton so far. Plan to pick up the pace this spring and get Hough on the Hill, Hougham, Houghton House, Hougton Regis, Houghton Conquest, etc., etc. I hadn't been very interested in genealogy in the past, but 've gotten hooked here. By the way, most Brits can't pronounce Hough right either, but more tend to get it right than do Americans. If you have any information on my grandfather, Sumner Hough, and his roots I would be interested. My father thinks that our ancestors came from England in the 1800s to Canada then to PA. Thanks, Paul

Hi Max - I'm so glad to find this Huff site! My father's mother was Nettie Huff, the daughter of James Louis Huff and Lizzie P. Mercer. They lived in McCrory, Woodruff Co., Arkansas. James Louis' father was (James) Elias Huff. He married Nancy Field (showed up in Jackson Co., AR), who died. Think she was from Missouri. Elias then married my gg-grandmother, Sarah Jane Couch, and they settled in McCrory. Elias was born in Kentucky (where?), according to the census. His father was James Huff, who I don't have any information on, but would like to find some! Gloria

My wife is a Hough from northern Indiana. Her Great Grandfather William Hough moved from Indiana to Radersburg, Montana in the mid 1800's. We are looking for background on William. We think he was born in Manchester, Eng around 1831, and may have come to the US with brothers who settled in the eastern states, perhaps Pennsylvania. If anyone has any info that corresponds to this sketch please e-mail me. Thanks MAX for all the effort you put into this site, it is really appreciated. DF

MAX, great site! I am looking for information on Lewis Calvin Huff b 28 Apr 1844 in Bedford Conty, PA, married Dorotha M. Bowers. Trying to find out where I came from, looking for his Parents and back as far as I can go. Lewis and Dorotha had seven children, William Harrison, Cora, Delano, Ida Mae, Estella, Clarence Ray, and Otis. I think his fathers name was Isaac Huff, some information says Lewis carried the mail in Pomroy, Ohio and he possibly had a sister named Minnie Orchid, Lewis may have served in the French and Indian war and could have been raised by two people named Yearing and Conrad, could their last names be Huff? Your help would be much appreciated, and keep up the good work on the site!

Max, It appears that the Huff I'm looking for is one Joseph Huff,born in Botetourt County VA about 1750. Wife Elizabeth. Had 10 children, one being a Rev.John Huff(b.1786) who moved to MO and then back to Cooke Co.Tennessee. No grave found for Joseph so he may be buried near St.Louis,MO. His father was the infamous Leonard Huff and we don't know where he came from or is buried. All inquiries about above welcome.Thanks Jerry Huff (jerhuff2@juno.com or hufrap@rbnet.com<)

She was born 2/22/1893 and died 2/9/1970. I believe she was born in northern Illinois and she is buried in Wilson, Michigan. I am interested in further knowledge. She married Frank Messersmith.

I am beginning to research my grandmother's family. She was a Huff in Marion County, IL. According to the records I've gleaned locally, I descend from Leonard Huff. LEONARD HUFF was born in Alsace Loraine and came to America about 1725. Leonard was a surveyor in Botetourt Co., Virginia. After the Revolution, the Huffs moved westward through Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, and Illinois. The family came to Illinois in 1814 from Jackson County, Tennessee. We think that Leonard's wife was Sallie Hix (not confirmed) Their children were Samuel, William, Leonard, Richard, Rachel, and Sally. Leonard's son SAMUEL (b. Aug 18, 1778; d. April 24, 1845 in Marion Cty., IL) married Mary Proctor (b June 10, 1778; d. Oct 19, 1847 in Marion County, IL. Your site looks like THE PLACE to meet and share family history with other researchers. Thank you for the time and effort you've given the members of the family tree.

What an incredible site! I have always wondered about my last name - where it originated from etc. The curiosity began when I found a book written by Emerson Hough in a flea market. I have not known too many people with my last name so I pondered the idea I was a descendent of Emerson. Although I am a full time student, and a single mother with the drive to explore the last frontier, I think I may have just stumbled upon a new hobby when I found this site! I am originally from the Missouri Ozarks, if anyone is interested in the Midwest settlers. I think we have been there for 5 or 6 generations.

My family has lived on the eastside of Washingto state since the late 1800's but the first Hough of record of my family is George Hough born 1780 in Morehead PA. He had three brothers that I am looking to find out more about. I am also trying to find a journal that my grandmother had about the trip across the country in a wagon in the 1880's or around that time. My father rembers it but no one knows what has happened to it. If I find it I will send some of the transcrips to you as they may be af some interest. At this time I do not have a E-mail adress.
