A. E. Shoffner, one of the leading planters of Jackson County, was born in North Carolina, on April 18, 1831, and is a son of Frederick and Susan (Danison) Shoffner, both natives of Germany, who emigrated to this country with their parents, and settled in North Carolina, the grandfather becoming a prominent planter in Orange County. The father was married in the same county, and died in that place in 1845, near Hillsboro, the mother dying several years later. They were the parents of two sons, Aenes E. and T. M. The former son was born and reared in Orange County, N. C., and received his education in that place. In the fall of 1858, he emigrated to Arkansas, and located at Batesville, where he remained until 1860, when he removed to Jackson County and settled in Richmond Township. He bought some land and commenced farming in that locality, but a few years afterward he moved to Breckinridge Township, and settled on a farm in that place. On his arrival in Arkansas he possessed very little, but being a man of industrious habits and economy he became very successful and accumulated considerable property. He now owns about 960 acres of valuable land in Jackson County, with about 300 acres under cultivation, and a great many improvements on his other land. Mr. Shoffner has passed through many hardships in his life, and encountered obstacles in his path on almost every occasion when seeking to make his fortune, but his strong will, determination and upright character, have placed him in an independent position, and he is now a respected and highly-esteemed citizen of his county. In the spring of 1862 he enlisted in Company I, of Ganze's regiment, and served until the surrender. He was principally assigned to the quartermaster's department during that time, but also took part in several battles. Mr. Shoffner was married in 1854, to Miss Martha N. Patterson, [p.899] by whom he had eight children: Emily I., Queeny A., Susan L., William H., Charles C., Edwin P., Daniel L. and Nanuie B. Mr. Shoffner has served as justice of the peace and constable of his township, and has also been one of the school directors. He is a member of the Knights of Honor and Royal Arcanum, and also of the Masonic fraternity.

B. R. McDearmon, one of the prominent citizens and manufacturers of Weldon, Ark., is a native of Tennessee, having been born in Wilson County, September 19, 1858. His parents were William W. and Martha (Wright) McDearmon, of Tennessee. His father came to Batesville, Ark., and engaged in business of contractor and builder, till his death in 1879 or 1880. The mother died April 19, 1887. They were members of the Missionary Baptist Church, and the father was a Democrat, and served four years in the Southern army, being once captured, but never wounded. The subject of this sketch spent his school days in Batesville, and attended the State University at Fayetteville one year, receiving a good English and scientific education. At the age of eighteen he went to Tennessee for his health, and spent two years as apprentice with S. L. Garrett, a noted architect of Louisburg, Tenn. In 1879 he returned to Arkansas, and, on account of his father's ill health, ran his saw-mill on what is now the Pickett farm, at the same time carrying on the same business ten miles south of Newport. In 1880 he sold his father's mill (after his death), and in 1888 his own, in the meantime having built the grist-mill and machine shops at Weldon. He also in 1888 built the largest cotton-gin and press in the county. November 15. 1881, he married Miss Susan L. Shoffner, daughter of A. E. and Martha (Patterson) Shoffner, Mr. Shoffner being a prominent farmer of Jackson County. They have two daughters: Pearl, three years old, and Node, eight months, respectively. Mr. McDearmon, who has been
active in the development of Weldon, now owns several town lots, [p.884] and two blocks in the town. In connection with the milling and ginning business, he does general repairing and manufacturing, and takes no part in politics.

**********
Notes from Brenda Thomas, RootsWeb, WorldConnect:
Martin was seventeen when the Revolution started. An account by his grandson Loton Shofner states " Martin Shofner was actively engaged as a soldier in the War of the Revolution serving in the North Carolina Line. I have often listened to my grandfather as he told me stories of those troblesome times. Martin was a man of wonderful physical strength and great activity even down to old age. One story illustrates his great strength. He was a member of a regiment of calvalry. On one occasion a regiment of infantry, being encamped near them, sent a challenge to bring out their best man for a trial of strength and skill at wrestling. Grandfather was selected to meet their champion and after the match, came off victor."

Post by Larry Shoffner:
Chris: There isn't a lot of information on Peter and his wife, Delilah, but here's what my research shows:
Peter was born on 20 Nov 1770 in what is now Alamance County, NC. He was the son of Michael Shofner and Margaretha Fogleman. He married Delilah Henderson, probably in 1794, with whom he had at least six children. The possible 7th child is Hezekiah, supposedly born in Bedford County, TN, perhaps in 1822. Hezekiah reportedly married Emily Pitt in 1847 in Rutherford County, TN, had nine children and by 1860 had moved to Dyer County, TN. He is believed to have died sometime after 1880. As for Peter, he had moved to TN in 1808 only to return to NC in 1812 to manage lands he had inherited from his father. Later he sold these lands to his brother, Frederick, and was back in TN by 1820. His other children's names are as follows:
1. Caty Lattimore; b. 1795; d. 1822
2. William; b. 1797; d. 1879
3. Plummer L.; b. 20 Mar 1811; d. 8 May 1888
4. Gabriel; b. 1814; d. 1880
5. Elvira; b. 17 Jun 1817; d. 25 Sep 1886; married Thomas Gore
6. Elisabeth; b. 1819.
Hope this helps some.
