Barry Wood sent through a quick reply: The short answer is that Benjamin and Jacob are NOT descendants of Christian Hufford b. 1716 in Schwaigern.

Barry's words are below:

The Dauphin County Huffords are, if I recall correctly, from the family described in Isaac Hoffert’s genealogy published at Mt. Joy, Pa. I believe that the immigrant was a Johan Hofer. Basically these people are called “Hoffer” more than half the time in the records, but inexplicably a “t” or “d” gets added, which can be more than a little confusing. They even had a “Christian” in their family in Lancaster County, who now and again is called Christian Hoffert rather than Christian Hoffer. The branch of this family that moved to SW Va. standardized their surname eventually as “Hoffard.”
