I am researching a Jacob Huffman (b. about 1795 probably in TN) who married Polly Lawrence in Blount Co, TN in 1818 and moved to Marion Co, TN, and then on to St. Francis Co, AR in about 1835. His last appearance on Census records was on the St. Francis Co listing of 1860. I believe that he had a sister, Elizabeth, who married my Great Grandfather, George W. Roy. On the 1850 Census Jacob is shown with a child of 10, William Roy, residing in his household. I'm not sure if William's last name is Roy or Huffman. Interesting that your father's first name is Roy.

I know that Jacob had some sons according to the 1830 Census of Marion Co, TN. I have not been able to trace them. There is a fairly large gap between my Jacob Huffman and your father. There may not be a connection. Do you know the name of your Huffman grandfather? Is your father still alive?
