The Children of Robert Huff
Sarah H. Huff
Born in 1828, she was 14 when her father died. She received 3 Negros (two men and one woman) from the Estate. Nine months later she married William H. Glenn, the son of a neighboring farmer. Her sister, Lucinda married Thomas L. Glenn, the brother of William H. Glenn, in 1848.
In 1850, she and her husband and 3 children were living near her mother on land purchased from two of her brothers, William B. Huff and Thomas P. Huff. In 1851, William Glenn bought the 1/12 Interest in the Sarah Huff Dower lands of William B. Huff at a Sheriff’s Sale. During the same year, her husband recorded another deed of a tract of 70-acre tract from William B. Huff. (This may be the same tract as the first purchase.)
In 1853, her husband died and she was left to raise five minor children. Apparently, she was left with the farm until the majority of her children. Her youngest son, William M. Glenn died in 1856 at age three. He had been born two months after her husband’s death.
During this decade, she obtained two shares of the Sarah Huff Dower Lands from the estates of her deceased brothers.
Elizabeth Huff Glenn was living near her mother in 1860 with four children, ages 15 to 10 in 1860. She owned 2 male slaves in 1860.
At some point, she became the caretaker of her mother, Sarah Huff, and continued in that service until 1868. That year her daughter Clara died and her daughter Sarah married Daniel Cleveland of Elbert County. Her husband’s estate was also liquidated at that time. Also, in that year, Nancy Kinnebrew and her husband, Henry Kinnebrew relocated her mother, Sarah Huff, to their home and Henry Kinnebrew took control of the Sarah Huff Dower Lands. Elizabeth Huff Glenn moved to Elbert County.
Elizabeth Huff Glenn over the years became close to her uncle, Richard Huff. During the 1860’s, her son, Thomas H. Glenn, became Richard Huff’s caretaker and remained so until his death in 1872. Richard Huff deeded his home farm (the Bradley Old Tract) of 941 acres to her in 1869, to be effective at his death.
The 1870 Census found her in her daughter’s and son-in-law’s home in Ruckersville, Elbert Co., GA. She was shown as a schoolteacher. Her son Robert, age 28, was also at the home as a farm laborer.
In 1872, Richard Huff died and left her the 87-acre Hubbard Tract in addition to the 941-acre Bradley Old Tract. She moved back to this home in the Goosepond Dist. about 1872. Also, in 1872, Elizabeth Glenn sold her ¼ interest in the Sarah Huff Dower Lands to Henry Kinnebrew for $ 600.
In 1880, Elizabeth Glenn was living in the Goosepond Dist. with her son, Thomas Glenn and his child of 8 months. At some point in the 1880’s she married Gideon Bunch. He died in 1890.
She, at age 71, was shown in the 1900 Census living in Goosepond Dist. with her son Thomas and his two children, ages 20 and 17. She died in 1908 at age 79.
