Elizabeth Houx Hufford
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 23, 1789
Frederick County
Maryland, USA
Death: Feb. 7, 1867
Miami County
Ohio, USA

George (Jerg) Jacob Houx (1758-1832)
Catharina Schulz (1749-1813)

paternal grandparents:
Theodor Friedrich (Frederick) Houx (1725-1802)

Anna Maria Federhoff (1731-1811)

Married John Hufford on 29 Mar 1812 in Creagerstown, Frederick Co., MD.

According to the baptismal records of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Frederick County, Maryland (p. 41) Elizabeth Houx was born Oct 28, 1789 and baptized on Dec 13, 1789, the daughter of Jacob Houx (Haux) and Catherine (Schultz) Houx.

Her marriage license to John Hufford is dated Mar 28, 1812. But in volume 1, page 121 of "Newspaper abstracts of Frederick County" by F. Edward Wright (Westminster, MD, Family Line Publications, 1992) is an entry from Bartgis's Republican Gazette dated April 4, 1812 that states, “Married same evening [Sunday evening last] by Rev. David F. Schaeffer, John HUFFARD to Miss Elizabeth HOUX, both of this co.” which would put the marriage on Mar 29, 1812, the day after the marriage license.

The Huffords left Frederick County, Maryland in 1838 which is confirmed by an entry in Jacob Engelbrecht's diary dated Friday Oct 19, 1838, 9am, who not only records their eventual departure but explains his relationship to Elizabeth Houx. He writes: "Mr John Hufford & family & Several of their relations from this neighborhood of Woodsborough in this County just now Called to see us & bid us `Good bye`. They are Moving to the west. Mrs. Hufford is my first cousin, a daughter of my mother's brother, Jacob Houx."

This corresponds to the 1840 Census where they are enumerated in Dayton Township, Montgomery County, Ohio. It is believed that they followed the National Road from Frederick County, MD heading west towards Ohio and stopped near the then western terminus of the Road near the Miami Valley of Ohio.
