1844: The Huffman family had been around the area for a while and the young Jacob N. Huffman was the high bidder grabbing all three tracts (641 acres) of the Skyland/Dutch-Fork Stark Estate for $10,427.00 (Sarah Stark to Jacob N. Huffman transfer: Lexington County Assessor's Office, Lexington, S.C.). Jacob would have a great life on this land and would bring in a new and large generation of Huffman's. His large home would be occupied by Sherman's troops in 1865 but spared only to meet its end in our generation to the neighborhood Food Lion grocery store. In 1897, the Quarry took on the Huffman name.
