![II] James Huffman was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1821, died in May 1893. He grew to manhood in his native county, was educated in the public schools of the locality, and after his marriage moved to South Beaver township, Beaver County, where he purchased a farm of more than one hundred acres near Elder’s Factory. In order that he might conduct farming operations on a larger scale, he purchased a large area of land adjoining his property, cultivating the entire tract. He became the owner of Watts Mills, shipping his whole output to Pittsburgh. In this occupation he gradually devoted less time to his farming, later selling the flour mills and giving his attention exclusively to his land. He finally sold all his property and made his home with his son, Frank L., until his death, aged seventy-three years. His life was one of successful activity, blessed with rich and abundant fruit, due in large measure to the hearty enthusiasm with which he entered upon any task, no matter how distasteful, and the unabating industry that characterized his working years. He was a Democrat in political belief, supporting his party in every issue requiring close party lines.
!He married Jane Maloney, born near Florence, Washington county, Pennsylvania, in 1921, died in December, 1893.
