From "Commemorative Biographical Record of the counties of Sandusky and Ottawa, Ohio, published 1896 by J. B. Beers & Co.:

James HUFFORD, the third son of Jacob Hufford, was born Nov. 23, 1812, in Greene county, Ohio, and came with his parents to Sandusky county, in 1836. Here he started in life for himself, his only endowments being good health and a determination to accomplish something in the world. In June, 1837, he was married to Miss Susan Arnold, of Greene county, and to them were born three children: George W., born in 1838, and died at Memphis, Tenn., during the Rebellion, a member of the Seventy-second Regiment, O. V. I.; Harriet A., who married William Slates; and Joseph M., born in 1845, an died in 1868. Mrs. Hufford was called from earth June 23, 1846, and was buried in Muskalonge Cemetery. On Dec. 24, 1847, Mr. Hufford was married to Elizabeth Fisher, of Sandusky county. She was born in Perry county, Ohio, Jan. 9, 1829, and came with her parents to Sandusky county when eight years of age, where she has since lived. Mrs. Hufford is a daughter of William and Jane (Anderson) Fisher, the former of whom was born and married in Virginia, and to them were born five children, three of whom are now living: Mrs. Hufford, George Fisher and Mrs. Margaret Hummell; the father died in 1872, the mother in 1831. To Mr. Hufford by his second wife was born one child, William T. Hufford, whose sketch follows.

James Hufford was a highly esteemed citizen, and an affectionate husband and father. He was a very intimate friend of Dr. Wilson, president of the First National Bank, of Fremont, Ohio. By hard work and strict integrity he accumulated a handsome property, west of Fremont. At his death, which occurred Mar. 31, 1895, he owned 277 acres of as fine land as can be found in Sandusky county. Mr. Hufford had all of his business settled, his will executed and his son, William, appointed executor of his estate. The property is to remain intact during the life of Mrs. Hufford, then descend to the children - William T., and his half sister.
