Seneca County New York Biographies

In the 1980’s a series of newsletters were published four times a year by Seneca County NY featuring historical information concerning Seneca county and her past residents. The current historian for Seneca County placed these online using PDF files. One of the main features of each edition were biographical sketches of early settlers of Seneca County. Unfortunately, while they provided an index inside of a spreadsheet for the 189 biographies, it is difficult for the average user to quickly get around. I’ve taken their spreadsheet and linked each edition to the PDF file. Once you’ve found the biography you...

Biography of Thomas J. Huff

One of the pioneers of the northwest and one of the old residents of Caldwell is Thomas Jefferson Huff, the present assessor of Canyon County. He is a man of the highest integrity and ability, and stands well in the estimation of all who know him. A lifelong Democrat, and devoted to his party, he has never occupied a public office before, and has not been an aspirant for political honors and emoluments. In his business career he has met with success, and by well directed energy and good judgment he has amassed a comfortable fortune. Philip Huff, the paternal grandfather of our subject, was born in Germany, and coming to America in early manhood, settled in Tennessee. In that state his son Jefferson, father of Thomas J. Huff, was born, and for some years he made his home in Indiana. He married Lutilda White, and twelve children were born to them. In 1852 the family set out on a long and dangerous journey across the almost interminable plains, seeking for a new home and better prospects. The year was an especially trying one, as the cholera was raging in this country, and the emigrants along the way appeared to be favorite subjects of attack by the dread enemy to life. Four of the children of Mr. and Mrs. Huff succumbed and were buried on the dreary plains. Newly...

She was loved by everyone, being one of the north end pioneers, having lived here most of time since 1898. The family left the north end once and went to southern Oregon where they stayed only a short time. Mr. Hulse died the winter of 1911 and since that time Grandma had made her home with her only daughter, Mr. Ida Moore, north of Flora, only visiting with the other children a short period at a time. Only her son, Eddie and her daughter, Mrs. Moore were with her during her last illness as her son Minor had left a few days before she was taken sick, for a mining camp in California. There was no way for them to get word to him. Her son Lon left on Sunday for the upper Salmon River to trap this winter. Messengers were sent at once to find him, but no clew was found of him or any camping place. Harry Hafer of the upper Eden country, rode over that part of the country two days and Charlie Davis and others of Troy rode the Salmon country over two days, but no word was found of Mr. Hulse, so this...
