LEWIS C. HUFFMAN, retired farmer; P. 0. Springfield; is one of the old residents of Clark County; he is a native
of Vrginia, born in 1810. His parents, Herbert W. and Sarah (Arthur) Huffman, came to this county in 1816, and
settled in the School Sec. 16, Springfield Township, where they continued to reside until the decease of the father.
The mother's decease occurred in Springfield in 1843. They had a family of six sons and one daughter, of whom five
sons and one daughter are living. The subject of this sketch remained on the farm until about 18 years of age,
then came to Springfield and learned the carpenter's trade, in which he was engaged several years. In 1840 he married
Elizabeth J., daughter of James Donnel, a pioneer of Bethel Township. After his marriage, Mr. Huffman purchased
a farm in the vicinity of the old homestead and engaged in farming, which he continued until 1875, when he returned
to Springfield, and in the following year built the handsome residence, corner of South Limestone and Mulberry
streets, which has since been his family residence. He still owns the farm where he first began domestic life,
but has retired from active labor. Mrs. Huffman was born in this county, and both have resided here from their
childhood. They are members of the Trinity Baptist Church. They have three children - Mrs. Thomas C. Ackerson,
Mrs. C. W. Morris and J. Donnel. They also raised an adopted daughter, Maggie, who is still with them.
