Joel Hufford was born in 1808 at Carlisle, Nicholas county, Kentucky, and was descended from Christian Hufford, who emigrated to this country from Germany. Louisa Jane Miller was born on December 8, 1813, in Kentucky, and was united in marriage with Joel Hufford August 31, 1830. About two years later they came to Indiana, locating at once in Hendricks county. They made the trip from their native state in a one-horse wagon, which contained all their worldly possessions. They had belonged to families of prominence in Kentucky and had always been accustomed to having their work done by slaves, but they readily adjusted themselves to conditions in the state of their adoption, entered a tract of eighty acres from the government, which they proceeded to clear and convert into a comfortable and happy home for themselves and family.
