Fred Huff, an early and well-known settler in the southeastern part of this county, died early on last Friday morning and was buried in the Nescatunga cemetery on Saturday. He had not been in good health for some time and death was not unexpected. Mr. Huff was a native of New York. He witnessed the building of the Erie Canal in 1825 and was a passenger on the first boat which made the trip through the canal. In 1885 he, with his family, came to this county and had since continued to make this his home. He lived a rather exclusive life, especially during the past few years. His former years, however, were active ones and he frequently related to busy scenes of his earlier days. A wife and two step-daughters, Mrs. Richardson and Mrs. Wm. G. Deubler survive the deceased. At the time of his death Mr. Huff was 86 years of age.
