I too am a gg-grandson of Rufus Huffman (Jul 1850 - 29 Apr 1927) and Georgia Prather Huffman (7 Mar 1851 - 21 May 1918). My great-grandfather was James Edward Huffman (23 Jan 1873 - 21 Apr 1947) who married Viola Newman (b.1909) of Grovetown, GA. My great-grandmother turned 101 years old this year and is still sharp as a tack. Obviously, she was much younger than "Jim" Huffman so she remembers Rufus (her father-in-law) and has told some "colorful" stories about him.
As a matter of fact, our Huffman ancestors were pretty "colorful" all the way 'round. Rufus' mother, Sarah Elizabeth Powell, actually shot and killed his father, Wiley Huffman in 1853. I can send you a copy of the newspaper article that was published.
I have quite a bit of information on this family and will be more than happy to share with you. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com with your questions and we'll go from there.
