Re: Duffords of Pennsylvania

Edward, can you confirm the children of Frederick and Mary Dufford, parents to your Ephraim? This has been the biggest block to my research, actually proving that my Jacob Henry Dufford, born 16 May 1834, is their son. What I know comes from the 1850 census, in which Mary Dufford is recorded with two sons, William and Jacob H. Duffords. An analysis of the earlier censuses, which do not included names of every member of the household, would seem to indicate that Frederick Dufford who died in 1845 was their father, but I have not been able to prove that.

It has been a long time since I researched this family, but I discovered in my notes that Frederick and Mary Dufford were the parents of at least Ephraim, born 21 Nov 1823 in Butler County, Pennsylvania, and a daughter Elizabeth. Can you confirm or deny that they were also the parents of Jacob Henry and William? And do I have Frederick's lineage straight, as well?

Frederick (1795-1846), son of
Salome Handshuh and Johan Frederick Dufford (b1774), son of
Susanna and Adam Dufford (c1725-1778), son of
Eva Anthoni and Philip Dufford Jr. (c1690-c1767), son of
Philip Dufford Sr., (c1660) the original Dufford settler of Germany Valley.
