Laffoon family genealogies have a Sarah E(lizabeth) "Sallie/Sally" Boat(w)right Si(m)ms (pick your favorite spelling) married to William Samford "Rufus" Laffoon.

Family history says they married in Giles County, Tennessee in about 1844. Sarah is from Tennessee. William is from Kentucky.

This Laffoon family is living a short distance from the Heneger Simms family in Carroll County, Arkansas in the 1850 census. Simms is household 659 and William S. and Sarah Laffoon are household 666.

Sarah was b. 2 Oct 1823, d. 10 Oct 1906 and is buried in Bellefonte Cemetery next to her youngest son George Martin Laffoon and his family. Other than that I have been able to find absolutely NO information about Sarah E. Laffoon.

Does anyone have any information that could connect her to this Simms family living so nearby?

Kelvin, I am a Boatwright descendent, and have a fairly sizable tree on Ancestry.com, but do not have any Laffoon's in it, nor a Sarah Elizabeth Boat(w)right Sims.  Sorry I didn't see your inquiry years ago, but if you are still searching for her, I will be happy to help if I can.    E-mail me at: margaretecurry@cox.net, with any info you do have, and I'll see if I can connect your Sarah to my family.  Meantime, I wish you luck.
