Hardy County Families
The Peter Huffman Family
From Hardy County, VA to Greene Co. OH

Peter was an older brother of Daniel Huffman. Peter and Daniel married sisters, Barbara and Rosanna Peterson. Peter and his family came to Ohio from Hardy County in 1805, seventeen years before Daniel made his move to Ohio. Although they settled in different counties, I would guess that their homes were about 25 miles apart.

The grave markers are located at the "Love of Light Chapel", formerly the Selma Methodist Church. Selma is in Clark County, Ohio, just a mile or so from the Greene County line.
