Harriet:
Just found your message. Take a look at my posted note to <Http://rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igmpostem.cgi> Also look at GenForum msg #3949. This is my attempt to provide a reason to look for John & Margaret Huffman in Loudoun Co. I know that other folks claim John Huffman, Sr. d. & was buried in SW PA but so far no one has provided any proof of that claim.
John & Margaret Huffman lived in Loudoun Co. where John d. in 1792. John's will gave his plantation to Phillip Huffman, his oldest son. I don't yet kknow how Phillip disposed of the property but hope to answer the question.
Unfortunately John Huffman, Sr.ignored his other children proably due to the fact they were female and well married.
Look at Loudoun Co., GenForum msg. 2461. 1790 [Second Battalon] only John was taxed on specific personal property. Then John, Jr. in 1791A was taxed. How this impacts the property of John, Sr. Is beyond my ability to explain unless John, Jr bought the property from Phillip after their father died.
Paul Huffman, author of "Family History of Paul Huffman" on WorldConnect mentions Phillip, Henry and Peter Huffman the 3 named heirs of John Huffman, Sr.
The fact that Abel Davis and probably William Smith were from Loudoun Co. I see as further indication that John Huffman, Sr. wife, Margaret and their daughters lived in Loudoun Co. before the girls were married. If they eloped and m. in MOnongalia Co. the records were probably lost in the 1794 fire that destroyed County Court records.
If you turn up any record of William & Elizabeth please let me know. Thanks,
Joe
