(1) DARLING HUFF who was born Abt. 1826 in South Carolina and died c 1896 in Lancaster County South Carolina. Darling Huff married Lydia Angeline Knighton 10 Apr 1851 in Benton/Calhoun County, Alabama. For whatever his reason Darling Huff returned to Lancaster Co SC between 1866 and 1870 leaving his wife and children behind. Darling Huff's obituary says he "went out to Alabama before the war" and that "he still has family living there".
Darling Huff and wife Lydia Angeline Knighton had the following children:
JOHN W. HUFF, b. 16 Aug 1852, Benton County, Alabama; d. 28 Sep 1927, Forney, Cherokee County, Alabama.
MARY F. HUFF, b. Abt. 1858, Benton County, Alabama; d. 28 Jul 1924, Cropwell, St. Clair County, Alabama.
THOMAS MERCER HUFF, b. 10 Sep 1856, Shoal Creek, Benton/Calhoun County, Alabama; d. 24 Mar 1942, buried at Cleburne Memorial Cemetery, Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas.
WILLIAM HUFF, b. Abt. 1866, Calhoun/Cleburne County, Alabama.
It is the youngest child William Huff born about 1866 that I need to locate after 1880 where he is in the household of his mother Lydia/Letta HOUGH. I have more information I would share about the other three children but I do not know where to begin in searching for William Huff b. 1866 in Cleburne County, Alabama.
