Peter Huff, Jr.
The Huff Family
He used the name “Huff” throughout his adult life. He was never married and had no recognized children. Baised on the Will of Richard Hoff, his brother, some of the heirs of Richard Hoff may have been the children of Charles Huff.
As he achieved adulthood, he apparently became his father’s overseer on the Goosepond properties.
After his father’s death in 1828 he received 3 male adult slaves and $ 1, 404.16 from the estate.
He signed a note for $ 404 to the estate, possibly for the Ashmore tract of 200 acres and the Winny Huff Dower Lands of 800 acres. The record is silent as to the date of transfer for these properties. In 1829 he bought 562 acres from James Glenn on Mack’s Creek.
In 1830 the Census showed him living in Simpson’s District west of Goosepond Dist., apparently on the Glenn Tract. He was shown with 10 slaves at that time.
In 1833 and 1836, he sold portions of the Glenn tract to Robert Cox and Tandy C. Goulsby.
He was shown in the 1840 Census as living in the Simpson Dist. and owning 23 slaves.
In 1844 he bought 370 acres from Blanton Thorton and in 1846 he sold a tract of unknown size to Talor Clark, Jr. Both these tracts were on the Mack’s Creek waters.
He died in 1850 and left his entire estate of 1427 acres, a home and 47 slaves to his brother, Richard Hoff. His estate included 152 hogs, 58 cattle, 80 sheep, 7 horses and a cotton gin with running gear. He held notes from 11 people for a total of $ 647.17. A note from Charles M. Huff, his half-brother, had no amount listed, apparently because it was deemed uncollectable.
