John Riley Sammons and America Huffman
Posted by: Ed Bowman Date: September 23, 2001 at 09:11:25

Carole Treece Scaggs indicated that John Riley married an America Huffman. My great great grandfather Absalom Bowman had a daughter America who married a Mr. Huffman who died falling off one of the hotels in Eureka Springs AR. They lived near where the dam of Beaver Lake is now located. I've seen it reported elsewhere that America married a Mr. Sammons after her husband George Washington Huffman died. What puzzles me is that there is a brick stone in the Ruddick Cemetery in Garfield AR that bears the name America Huffman. That cemetary is not too far from the Roller Cemetery where John Riley Sammons is buried. The fact that the stone says Huffman makes me wonder if John Riley married a daughter of America Huffman or if it is a daughter of America rather than America d/o Absalom that is buried in the Ruddick Cemetery.
