Fleming County

JAMES M. HUFF was born in Fleming County, Ky., February 2, 1841, a son of
William and Elizabeth (Stickrod) Huff, natives of Pennsylvania, his
grandfathers, Samuel Huff and Jacob Stickrod, having brought their families
from that State to Fleming County, Ky., between the years 1800 and 1805.
During the war of 1812 Samuel Huff took an active part; his son, William, is
a blacksmith and farmer, and resides at Maysville. James M. Huff was reared
in Fleming County, and learned blacksmithing under his father; he followed
the trade about seventeen years, and in 1872 removed to Ashland, where he
was engaged in mercantile business until 1879, when he relinquished the
business, and in November of the latter year established the Ashland
Republican, which is now at the front of Journalism in Kentucky. It now has
a circulation of 1,500. He also owns a fine job office, running six presses
and giving employment to six regular hands. In 1861 Mr. Huff married Mary
J. Donaldson, of Fleming County, a daughter of William Donaldson, deceased.
The only child born to this marriage is Lizzie Belle. The family are
members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
