Notes for John J Nofziger: John purchased some land and took the deed to the County Courthouse to have it recorded. The clerk in recording the deed entered it as John Nofzinger instead of Nofziger. John being a modest person did not want to tell the clerk that he made an error, so he left the name as the clerk had entered it onthe records. From that time, John and his entire family adopted the name of Nofzinger so the story goes.
