Nathan H. HUFF Sr.

NOTES: He was married first to Eliza Jane Wolf, then he was either married are living with Polly Ann Jones Loftis, then he was married to a widow by the name of Louisa C. Camern. This widow filed for a pension for the service of both Mr. Camern and Nathan Huff, who fought in the Union Army during the Civil War. Some sources say he died in 1897 and some say in 1901. I think I will send for the pension record and see if that says when he died it should. According to some family traditions Nathan was the meanest man in Tennessee. That could be true because some of the stories I have heard about his son Samuel H. Huff. Apparently Samuel was the meanest man in Tennessee and Kentucky. He must have taken after his father.

COURT RECORDS: Jackson County, Tennessee
State vs Nathan Huff ; pages 20, 21, 43, 73, 108, 167, 276 & 364; Jackson County Minutes, Circuit Court Minutes, Civil & Criminal Courts; Vol A Sept 1872 thru Jan 1875; Roll # 12 Sept 1872 to Sept 1876 A & B; Nathan Huff alias Tosh Huff indicted for the murder of Thomas J. Meaddows. (happened on 31 Jan. 1872) indicted by grand jury 12 Sept 1872, for 1st degree murder. Bond set for $4000.00. I can't figure out why he would have went to Carthage (Smith County.), but he was before Judge S. M. Fite and also taken to Flynns Lick (Jackson County). I know he lived in Flynns Lick, and I guess it depends upon how they ran the Court System then. Very Confusing..... He was in Carthage after the indictment and by 18 Sept. 1872. By Sept 15, 1873, the case was dismissed because James W. Meadows (father of the dec'd) would not appear to prosecute. James was charged with the Cost. (Another case which happens earlier.) You said something about why Polly may have left Nathan, this might have been why, but something else I found before I found this was in another, older Rule Docket book was a page that states: Mary Huff vs Nathan Huff Divorce Bill - Pauper; Bill filed 3 June 1867; Copy and spa to answer issued to sheriff 4 June 1867; Spa to answer returned executed by delivering a copy of bill & summoning deft as commanded 4 June 1867 W. C. Purdell, Sheriff Attachment issued June 1867 to J. Roberts, Deputy Sheriff; Attachment returned nothing found this the 5 August 1867 J. Roberts, Deputy Sheriff Ended August Term 1867; I think this has to be Mary (Polly), and even later on, in 1869 Nathan is being sued by R. A. Cox, Clerk & Master of Chancery Court (Case folder found in basement of Courthouse also on film) for the costs of this divorce, along with other cases they had tried for him. Among the cases mentioned: "by Judgement rendered in said court at August Term 1867 for costs of suit in the case of Mary Huff against said Nathan Huff ............ for judgement recovered before Thos D. Cassetty Justice of the Peace in favor of Gailbreath on the 7th of Nov 1851........assigned and trasnferred on 11 Jan 1869 to your orator, said Nathan Huff is insolvent and nothing can be made out of him........... Cox goes on to state that "said defendant Huff is a quirky unreliable fellow very much averse to paying his honest debts and your orator has reasons to believe that he will unless prosecuted by your honors weits of attachment & injunctions dispose of his interests in said land as to defeat your orators only remedy against him." (the land lies on Andersons branch of Flynns Creek in Dist #11---where Nathan Huff now lives..(Received this info from Jodie Bowman Chinoy email: Jodie1954@twlakes.net 6 Jan 2002.)
