Huff Family History

Posted in Research Questions

I have been receiving many queries via Google for the “Huff family history.” I am a Huff by marriage, and I am afraid I know very little about my husband’s lineage. I am happy to confer with anyone who has information about the family, as living family members, to date, have not been able to provide much information, either.

The Huffs into which I married are from Nashville, Tennessee. My husband is Steven Eric Huff, son of Bobby Richard Huff and Margaret Lovene Lane. My father-in-law’s parents were Ben Martin Huff, who died in Spring Hill, Maury County, Tennessee in 1994, and Frances Milred Bolton, who was born in Hart County, Kentucky. My husband believes his great-grandfather to have been Will Martin Huff. At any rate, the name Martin does seem to be popular in his branch of the Huff family.

If any visitors querying “Huff family history” see a connection, I would like to hear from you.

    I am the granddaughter of Lettie Huff, born circa 1881, and married to Ervin Hecox in Missouri in June 1896. They passed away before I was born. All my parents generation are gone. I can find information on the Hecox side, but nothing at all about Lettie…not her parents, her actual birthdate or anything at all.
    My father once said Lettie’s mother was a Sioux Indian. He told us a lot of other things that weren’t true, so I don’t know if that was. My daughter recently did the Ancestry DNA test, and there was no Native American listed in her results, so I have reason to doubt my father. He has been gone 50 years, so I can’t ask.
    I would appreciate any information about Lettie Huff, parents, siblings, etc.

    THAT sounds familiar. I thought the fight and jail all came from my father’s side. Apparently the Huffs out of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Indiana are a contributing factor. I have some almost miniature cousins on my mom’s Huff side. But their dad was short, too!

    Hello. I live in the hill country of Texas, my husband and I live on a ranch that has cliffs along the river, we have many names carved on them going back to the mid 1800 hundreds.
    A piece of a cliff scaled off that has what appears to be E.M or F. M Huff 1886 carved on the rock. I would like to find someone that may be kin to the line of the Huff Family. I have a photo of the piece but do not see a place where I can attach it to this post.
