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 them? Michael P. Hoffman  Dec 06, 1998

Looking for information on Samuel Dodson born 1840 in TN and married Nancy (Ballinger?) on 8 Oct 1865 in Dade Co. He died April 1901. I found that Nancy applied for a pension for Samuel's service with the 39th Reg of GA Volunteer Infantry, although his name does not appear on the roster. There is also a Samuel in Co F 34th Reg Vol Infantry. Are these two different people or do they have the wrong military info? I found a Samuel Dodson in the 1860 census in Dade Co, wife Martha and children Joseph and Mary. The Samuel in the 1870, 1880, and 1900 census is my great great grandfather.

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.
