Bio and Links
Bio Photo Sinner Saved by the Grace of God. Calvinist by the Five Points. West Virginian by birth. Virginian by family history, choice, and the Grace of God. Physician Assistant/retired Navy MSC Officer, now working for the Army at Ft. Lee, VA.
Thirty second degree Mason.
When writing or rewriting the bio of an especially noted person my goal is to create something a high schooler can use as the starting point for a term paper. Always ready to discuss Mr. Jefferson, I posted the bios of him, of his dear Patty and Patsy, and three of his biographers. Proud Southerner and member of the SCV (AP Hill Camp #167, Petersburg, VA). Actor/American Revolution (Patrick Henry's speech at St. John's Church, though I don't play Mr. Henry) interpreter. Member of the American Legion; Life Member of the NRA.

Professional memberships include the John Bell Hood Historical Society, the Edgar Allan Poe Foundation, the Army Society of Physician Assistants, and the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA)

My roots are in Southwestern Virginia, and southern West Virginia...family names would be Hufford (and the alternative spelling Huffard), Caldwell, Taylor, Ross, Bowman, and Farley, though I confess that my knowledge is limited.

Errors of fact, grammar, or spelling are 100% MINE. Please notify me when you catch them. Famous memorials are NOT 'first come first served' and people named "anonymous" will be ignored...unfortunately past events force me into a policy of deleting any unsolicited page sent to me.

My thanks to all who visit my dear Leila and our good friend Mo. God Bless you for your kindness!

RE: Dr. Nash
You don't owe me a thing Bob. I was glad to transfer the memorial to you. I think we share a mutual respect for each other's work. I could not have written a better bio for Dr. Nash than the one you did.

RE: Dr. Nash
Awesome bio Bob! I sent AJ a message asking him to credit you for writing it. I do not want to get credit for something I did not write.

Have a great weekend!

Robert E Lee CSA
Hat's off to your for doing God's work. As a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, I am preparing to do a talk on General Lee for our Lee, Maury, Jackson Luncheon at the end of the month. In preparation for my research I have created my one Robert E Lee Family Tree using only published documents as a resource. I don't copy other people's data because it is often incorrect. The Lee tree will give me a bare-bones structure to begin my talk. I will limit dates and battles and focus on "Lee, the man." Looking at the family members that lived before him, he had no choice but to answer the nation's call. I do feel that it was God's blessing that his parents passed on before the Civil War and had no knowledge of what their son faced. Thank you for the excellent history lesson on Lee.

RE: Eliza Hufford
Mr Hufford,

You are so informative. Thank-you.

G-G Grandmother was Eliza Hufford, Washington,Pa.
I do not believe she was an Elizabeth,I do not know why she wasn't one. Thank-you for your thought gesture of looking her up.

Have you checked www.deadfreds.com, for Hufford, surnames?

I saw a couple Hufford, photos,on Deadfred.com.


Hufford's, on the link below, may be from the larger Hufford family.

Thank-you

Matthias (Mathias) Hoffer
Hello,
I was doing some research on our ancestor and noticed that on Findagrave.com there are two submissions for Matthias. You may want to check out Find A Grave Memorial# 58957531 as there is a photo of the gravestone for Matthias and family showing there. I asked the page owner about why the grave is listed as 50 feet away and his guess is that the farmer plowed the field (unexcusable, in my opinion) and that a non-profit placed the stone there to at least have the family plot remembered.

AMB
found some of your HUFFORDs
Bob, I bumped into some more of your HUFFORD, originally from Pulaski Co., Virginia; died in Tennessee. Here's the link to one:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=87531945

There are some others in that same cemetery.

Hope all's well!
