Huffman - Hoofman

John Huffman/Hoofman was born ca. 1760 probably in VA. In 1829 he and two sons, Jacob and Joseph, were in Clark County AR. They were still there in 1840, but in a different Township. John died there in 1844.

During that time John married Mary (Unknown) and they had a house full of kids. Mary died in 1835 and family notes state she was "buried in the woods in the family cemetery".

John died in 1844 and those same family notes state he was "buried in the woods".

I have no clue where, in the area, they were living when Mary died, but have found the property John owned when he died. It is 91 acres of thick timber, dense underbrush, and wet lands. To much of a challenge to search without knowing if John actually lived on the property when he died.

I really would like to locate these graves, so, if anyone has any family history (oral or other) which may be a lead to the grave locations, I would sincerely appreciate hearing from you. You may contact me direct at jorgegrande@comcast.net
