Biography of Dr. David C. Huffman
Springfield, Clark County, OH Biographies





DAVID C. HUFFMAN, M. D:, physician, Springfield; is a native of Clark County and a grandson of the pioneer Jacob Huffman, who located at what was called New Boston. The subject of this sketch is a son of Jacob and Sarah (Tennant) Huffman. She was a daughter of David and Elizabeth Tennant, who came to Clark County from Lancaster, Penn., about 1830. Jacob Huffman, Jr., was a miller by trade and for a number of years, with his brother, was proprietor of the "Peru Mills;" also operated a stone quarry, and at one time was engaged in merchandising. He died Feb. 3, 1877. His widow and five children survived him, of whom David C. is the oldest son. He was born near Enon in 1855; graduated from the Miami Medical College in 1878, and immediately located here in Springfield and rapidly built up a practice which warranted him in taking Dr. Driscol into partnership. This partnership was formed in 1879, and still exists. Drs. Huffman and Driscol are young men possessed of culture, native skill and energy, as is proven by the extent of their practice, built up in so short a time. Dr. Huffman is the only one now here of six young physicians who located in Springfield in 1878. The fact that he was born and raised here speaks volumes in favor of his character, both as a citizen and a physician, for "A prophet is not without honor save in his own country," does not apply in his case. He is a member of the Clark County Medical Society, and a member of its Board of Censors.
