Catherine, I have (probably) all of the Washington County Court records w Huffaker in them prior to 1820 about. The Historical Society of Washington County says regardless of spelling it is the same family. My ancestor Michael came there in 1768 and his direct descendants have been well researched, but in late 1700s early 1800s there are marriage and land records for some "Huffakers" that are unconnected to Michael. Then early 1800s some of Michael's sons migrated to Wayne COunty KY and bought land. In those records are more "Huffakers" that are not (yet) connected to Michael-- yet they bought land in the same area as Michael's did. This seems too much of a coincidence and I am working on the theory these "unconnected to Michael" Huffakers were nieces and nephews. Hugh Dayton Huffaker in his history of the family (1927) claimed Michael had brothers John and Henry. The Mahanaim Methodist church history (on land Michael gave for the purpose) also claims Michael had brothers. No direct evidence of the brothers has turned up in VA or PA but I'm still looking. If you have any suggestions to pursue please let me know and let me know what information you need out of VA and I'll let you know if I have.
