Jeremiah Huffman

Nancy Pollard Tate


Jeremiah Huffman was born 1828 in Kentucky, and died Bet. 1880 - 1900 in Kansas or Oklahoma.  He married Nancy Pollard Tate March 31, 1853 in Jackson, Macon, Missouri, daughter of Simpson Tate and Lucy Dawson. She was born May 11, 1837 in Adair, Missouri, and died January 1918 in Caldwell, Sumner, Kansas.

In the 1860 and 1870 U.S. Census, Jeremiah and Nancy are residing in Macon County, Missouri.  In the 1880 U.S. Census, Jeremiah and Nancy are residing in Falls Township, Sumner County, Kansas.  It appears that Nancy is listed in the 1900 Kansas Census in Caldwell, Sumner County, as Nancy "Hoffman". She is living as a boarder with apparently a daughter, Alberta, born in 1875, who is a servant.  In the 1910 Census, Nancy is living with her son, Ed, in Grant County, Oklahoma.  

Nancy died of pneumonia during a blizzard in 1919 at her son Ed's farm.  The roads were not driveable, so they walked to the cemetery and her grave remains unmarked.  Jeremiah and Nancy are buried at Spring Creek Cemetery, straight north of Deer Creek, Oklahoma.  The grave sites were purchased by Ed Huffman.

Jeremiah and Nancy had eleven children:  Lucy, Charles, James, John Yancy, Ed, Mary Olive, George, Frances, Arminta, Alberta Bertha and Lolah.
