David Wilson  Dec 06, 1998
I am searching for the forbears of my great-grandfather Charles Whifield
Hoffman (also spelled Huffman in some records). A possible couple that might
have been the parents of my great-grandfather was Carles (possible
misspelling) and Eliza Huffman, who were living in Marion County TN in the
1860 census. They had a 3-year-old son named Charles, who would have been
about the right age as my great-grandfather. Carles Huffman was born in
Germany circa 1816, but his oldest child, 9-year-old George W., was born in
Georgia. I found Charles Huffman in the 1850 census for Dade County. He was
there with his wife Eliza, but of course had no children. Since Eliza was
born in North Carolina, there is a good chance that Charles (Carles) may have
emigrated into the United States via North Carolina. Unfortunately, I could
not find Charles (Carles) and Eliza Huffman in the 1870 or 1880 Tennessee
census. Perhaps the Civil War disrupted their lives. Has anyone in Dade
County run across this family and have they any clue as to what happened to

Co., TN in 1860 census. In 1886 he is listed in a deed/estate settlement

HANNA   JONES   STEWARD   STEWART
Searching for family of Susan STEWARD 1843 AL - 1871 Lawrence Co, MO. She
married Simeon H. JONES c1865 probably Dade Co, GA. Simeon's family lived
in Dade Co, GA, from the mid 1840's until the late 1860's. I believe Susan
was the Susanna in the following 1860 census:
#138 Rising Fawn Post Office
John STEWART c1808 TN farmer; Mary c1815 TN; Robert c1834 AL; Alexander c1841 GA;
William c1843 GA; Sarah A. c1845 GA; Joseph c1849 GA; Virginia c1855 GA;
Susanna 1843 AL; Margaret c1844 AL. It appears that Susanna and Margaret
were probably sisters, and nieces of John and Mary. There is also a
George Stewart c1837 AL enumerated in household #185 - of Alexander B.
HANNA c1807 KY and Matilda W. c1808 TN, who is probably related to the
other STEWART's. No other STEWART families appear on the 1860 census for
Rising Fawn Post Office. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
