More on Lauretta (Hufford) Siple
There is this on her husband:

Siple, Samuel Jeremiah, was born in Lehigh County, Pa., July 18, 1853, and died Dec. 20, 1938. Most of his life was spent in Indiana. He was married to Lauretta Hufford in 1883. There were ten children, four of whom, with their mother, have preceded him in death. Besides the six who are left, there are eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was a member of the Church of the Brethren since 1935. Funeral services were conducted by the writer, with burial in the Moss cemetery. Ray E. Zook, Flora, Ind.

That is from GOSPEL MESSENGER January 7, 1939.

Lauretta Siple, nee Hufford ???
Regarding Lauretta (Hufford) Siple, findagrave # 7493917, she is a real puzzle. If anyone can help, I would appreciate info. Please allow me to share this here, so that other researchers might find it. Thank you kindly for your indulgence with this:

I have worked the HUFFORDs for many years. I am not able to place her, and I find no couple "David HUFFORD and Mary HEDDRICK." However, that is what her death record says.

More Indiana records have come online. Here is the info from the woman's death certificate:
State of Indiana Certificate of Death # 17730.
Lauretta Siple
Died in Flora, Monroe Twp., Carroll Co., Indiana, on June 5, 1935.
Female, white, married.
Born Sept. 3, 1863; age 71 years, 9 months, 2 days.
Born in Indiana.
Housewife. Husband: Sam Siple.
Father: David Hufford, born in Indiana.
Mother: Mary Heddrick, born in Indiana.
Informant: Elmer Siple, Flora, Indiana.
Buried in Moss Cemetery, June 11, 1935.

1900, named as "Laura," she and husband are in Monroe Twp., Carroll Co., IN. Married 16 yrs; birthed 8 children; 7 living; children in household: Lillian, A., William Y., Elmer L., Walter C., Blanche M., Hazel E., Ruth M.

1910, named as "Laura" (last name indexed as "Sepel" by Ancestry), in Monroe Twp., Carroll Co., IN, with husband and children Walter, Hazel, Ruth, Rachel, Russel. Birthed 10; 8 living.

1920, named as "Laura," in Monroe Twp., Carroll Co., IN, with husband and son Russell.

1930, named as "Laura," in Flora, Carroll Co., IN, with husband, dau. Hazel, son Russel, and 2 grandsons.

Indiana marriage record: Lauretta HUFFORD and Samuel J. SIPLE; 2-Mar-1884; Carroll Co., Indiana.

A possibility is that she was born to a young couple, her mother died soon after her birth, father remarried, and she's on the 1870 and 1880 census records under a different last name, perhaps the last name of her maternal grandparents. No match has been found.

However, both her marriage record and her death certificate absolutely give her maiden name as HUFFORD.

Lauretta (Hufford) Siple
Followup to that May 24, 2015, comment about Lauretta (Hufford) Siple: She would not be a fit for child of David Hufford and Mary Jane Replogle. With more figuring, I found this: On the 1900 census, Mary said nine births; six living. Still alive in 1900: Frances, Emma, Sarah, Owen, Eli Elmer, Lottie. DEAD: Theodore, Anna Bell, one unknown. No room for a Lauretta. Now, regarding who Lauretta's parents were, I would be interested in the source for your information. I am doubting the accuracy of HUFFORD as Lauretta's maiden name.

Lauretta (Hufford) Siple
Regarding Lauretta (Hufford) Siple:

Your bio for her says that she was the daughter of David & Mary (Heddrick) Hufford. There was no such couple. Perhaps you mean David A. HUFFORD (1840-1924) and Mary Jane REPLOGLE (1845-1915). I cannot find Lauretta on any census, and she is not with that David and Mary couple on the 1870 or 1880 census. However, the info that Mary gave about births and living children on the 1900 census was 9 births and 6 living. I know only 8 names for Mary's children. But, I cannot find Lauretta on the census with that family.
