Sorry, I don't have any information on the Letitia McGuffin you are looking for, but this may be of interest to you:
Jane Barr Christened February 11, 1801, Belfast, Antrim, Ireland
Parents: Henry P. Barr & Letitia Turnly
Married: May 2, 1795, Belfast, Antrim.
Henry P. Barr born abt. 1775.
Also son: Henry Barr Jr. BORN Dec. 20, 1807.
*This info can be found by searching LDS database: http://www.familysearch.com/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp
Another interesting note: A letter copied to me by Alan Johnston, written by his grandmother about their McGuffin family history, states that Thomas McGuffin (married to Catherine Coburn) was very proud of his Hugenot connection. The hugenot name given in the letter is "Barre". Thomas' father was also Thomas McGuffin (abt. 1783-1866). The info I don't have which you claim is, Thomas's wife is Jane Barr.
Putting all this together and recognizing the repeated use of the name Letitia throughout McGuffin family history, I would tend to believe that Henry P Barr & Letitia Turnly are indeed your ancestors as well.
Note: A Hugenot is a French Protestant, many of which fled from France after the "Revocation of the Edict of Nantes" in 1685 facing persecution from the catholics.
Good luck verifying this.
(This also goes out to Bill McGuffin, Alan Johnston and Shiela Church).
To Gordon McGuffin for his research also!
