On the genforum for the Laffoon Family was a 2002 query about William H. Laffoon, b. 1862, Clay Co., Mo, specifically searching for information on his parents and grandparents,
We are relatively certain that we have found this William H. Laffoon in the 1860 Census of Clay County, Washington Twp, Missouri, page 137/973, but he was born ca 1856 as he is listed as 4 years of age, the oldest child in the James M. Laffoon and Nancy Laffoon family. They also had a son James M. (3 years) and Louisa J (1 year).
We think that he is the William H. Laffoon who married Mattie J. McCabe in Clay County June 16, 1878. However, we have NOT been able to find any further information on this William and Mattie (McCabe) Laffoon family and are wondering if they had any children and if they have any living descendants who might be interested in their McCabe ancestry.
