Kentucky, USA
Death: Jun. 3, 1895

John Wesley Hufford was born in Woodford Co., Kentucky. He is found in records as "J.W.," and for reasons unknown he was called "Bob." As a child, he moved to Scott County, Indiana, with his parents and siblings.

His siblings were George, Martha, Hezekiah, James Lloyd, Solomon, Elizabeth, and Nancy Jane.

From Indiana, the family moved to Iowa.

In Iowa, in 1847, John Wesley married Nancy Jane MERANDA. Nancy gave birth to his first child, Sarah, in 1848, and Nancy died soon after childbirth.

From Iowa, he moved to Clark Co., Missouri, where he married again on December 4, 1853, to Margaret Ann GEORGE.

Soon after 1854, he and his new wife moved to Shasta Co., California, where John Wesley mined for gold. Ultimately, he became a farmer and livestock rancher.

With Margaret, he had nine children: Solomon Joseph, John Wesley "Pete," John George, Ella, Jefferson, Robert Edmond (or Robert Edward), Louis Lee, Howard Henderson, and Anna Laura.

John Wesley died when he was 65. His widow survived him by 22 years.
