Jacob was the son of Christian HOFFART and his second wife, Anna Catherine.

Jacob was baptised on May 21, 1773, at St. Peter's Rocky Hill Lutheran Church, in Woodsboro, Frederick County, Maryland.

After his father died in 1788, Jacob's mother moved the family to Fayette County, Kentucky, where she died in 1807. By the time he was 35, he was parentless.

Jacob was the father of Cornelius, Jacob (Jr), Elizabeth, James, Levi, William, Isaac, and Catherine.

By 1850, he was living in Sandusky Co., Ohio, with his son William and William's family.

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

The great ancestor from whom have descended the Huffords now living in Sandusky county, Ohio, was Jacob Hufford. He was born in Maryland 1772, where he learned the trade of blacksmith. It was in his native State that he met and married Miss Catharine Creager, and shortly after their marriage they came to Kentucky, where for a few years Mr. Hufford worked at his trade. About 1811 they emigrated to Greene county, Ohio, where they lived until 1836, during which time Mr. Hufford continued at his trade, and it was here that his children - Cornelius, Jacob, Elizabeth, James, Levi, William, Isaac and Catharine - were born and brought up. In 1836 this ancestor came to Sandusky township, Sandusky Co., Ohio, where he purchased, in Section 31, 200 acres of land, which was held in the family until about 1881. After his death, in 1851, the land was owned by his sons, Jacob and William. None of the children of this old pioneer are now living, the last one, James, having died in the spring of 1895. The descendants of the children of Jacob, the pioneer, are now, many of them, living in Sandusky county.
