Jim, Please go through E-Mail. I do not log into this forum often. Also you have a cousin? I have been working with over this same data. She sent you E-Mail. Wash, Co., VA Deed Book 4 pp 106 - 107 dated Aug 31 1808; Also Aronhime Microfilmed card file. Lists: Jacob Halfaker and wife Margaret, Frederick Halfaker, John Halfaker, Samson Halfaker, Daniel Troxel(m Catherine Halfaker), Elizabeth Halfaker, and Susanna Halfaker, Jacob Halfaker Jr. There seems no doubt there were two branches of Huffakers in Washington County and I believe you have some of them mixed that were cousins. The above seem related as parents and children and children's spouses. I am currently building a large database to help with who is who. We may have identified the earliest ancestors of Henry Halfacre and the above elder Jacob might have been Henry's brother. Our best current theory is that Huffakers came from Immigrant of 1732, who came w three sons under age 16. Anglosized as John Henry and Michael. John died early. Henry started the line you are interested in. His records are in Philadelphia but not much there. I am working on whether dates and places are consistent. I theorise he had a son named Henry that is the one who married Mary Barracks and brother to Jacob Sr. of Deed Book 4. Please take all of this as provisional as I haven't done critical analysis and the records of Wash. Co. are filled with people with same names. Aronhime (a historian) started naming Jacobs as Jacob I Jacob II etc. Let me know what you have and it might support the theory or kill it. If you have contact in Philadelphia we might could get help.
