Abraham Hufford, Sr
Birth: Mar. 6, 1788
Frederick County
Maryland, USA
Death: May 14, 1859
Carroll County
Indiana, USA

Abraham Hufford, Sr., was a soldier in the War of 1812. In 1813, he married Elizabeth PLANK in Fairfield County, Ohio. They had 12 children: John, Margaret Rebecca, Suzan, Mary "Polly," Abraham Jr., Hannah, Joseph, Andrew H., Lydia, Emanual, Elizabeth, and David.

He was a farmer and a timber man. He was raised in the German Baptist Church, and he and his wife raised their children in the German Baptist Church.

In the fall of 1833, he moved with his wife and their first eleven children from Fairfield County, Ohio, to Carroll County, Indiana, an area that was mainly timberland. He erected a log house and covered it with bark, put out several acres of corn, and split timber for the flooring in his log house. He later erected a water power saw mill on his own farm, and he constructed a mill race in order to operate the
mill. At that saw mill, he sawed the lumber with which he built his house and barn.

The nearest market for his lumber was in Lafayette, Indiana, a distance of 16 miles.

He owned 1,900 acres of land in Clinton and Carroll Counties, Indiana. He gave to each of his children, at the age of 21 years, 160 acres of land. After gifting each child, he had 170 acres left.

Abraham's story begins on page 56 of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY.
