 Enoch Huff was a good hunter and good marksman.  He was a small man, not over 5 ft. and 2 or 3 inches high, slender build; small blue eyes.  He went into butchering business in Campbell Co. , and went to school to learn to handle his business.

                    Enoch’s children were born in Campbell Co. except Maggie and Robert.

                    Enoch would relate interesting stories about the early days.  He said his father would let him have the rifle to hunt squirrels, but required that he bring in a squirrel for each bullet he took out.  The bullets were counted to him.  Also, the squirrels must not be shot except in the head. Any violation of instructions would result in a whipping.

                   One day, he missed his squirrel, so he waited until he got his chance, and seeing two squirrels together, he maneuvered so that, getting them lined up right, he shot both through the head with one bullet.
