The Huff Family

About       Huff Family Notes     Robert Huff    Sarah Hardman Huff    Huff Family

The drive and ability to accumulate wealth of the first three Huff Family generations in GA deserted the fourth generation with three exceptions.  Of the twelve children to achieve adulthood, nine lived a hard-scrabble to low-income existence.  Only three achieved a middle-class to confortable life.  George R. G. Huff became a successful farmer with considerable resources.  Elizabeth H. Glenn inherited a large farm form her uncle and Henry and Nancy Jane H. Kinnebrew and her husband, Henry Kinnebrew, obtained the Sarah Huff Dower Lands of 600 acres after Sarah Huff's death with funds from an unknown source.  Listed below is each child and a narrtive of his or her life:
