HOFFART crest, as drawn by family descendant Jim Hufferd. The crest is found on a piece of art at the Lutheran church in Schwaigern, Germany. It is clearly labeled the HOFFART crest, and it is the church where Christian Hoffart/Hufford and his family gathered and worshipped before they came to America in 1729. Because Christian's family worshipped at that church, it is presumed (but not proved) that the crest was for one of his HOFFART relatives. It is correct that a family crest was *not* for every descendant of a person. However, I use that crest to "flower" persons descended from Christian Hufford b. 1716 who were born with the HUFFORD name (with any of the various spellings). I use is as a "stamp" or label, not as a suggestion that every person has the "right" to whatever heraldry there may be behind that image.
