Huff-Weir Genealogy

This section is for the family history and genealogy of the ancestors of Janet Huff Roe. The intention is to preserve and document their history for our children and grandchildren.

The four grandparents - Huff, Weir, Kettman and Shaw - immigrated from Germany, Ireland and Scotland in the late 1800's and early 1900's. They stayed within a small geographic area that primarily included Northern New Jersey.

The genealogy is broken into the families of Janet's four grandparents. As a starting place just the male line of each is planned. I haven't done much research of my own. This relies on collected family documents and stories. the documentation is not rigorous.
