My name is Holly Harcrow and my grandfather was Jesse Orban Daffron, from St.Clair Co, Alabama. His father was William Sherman Daffron, his father was also a William. His name was William Taylor Daffron, born 1849 in AL. His father was Noah Daffron, b: 1813 in South Carolina. Noah's father was Owen Daffron, b: 1791 in NC. Noah had a brother named Jospeh Daffron b: 1782 in NC. Joseph had a son named Smith Daffron, b:1813 in SC. Smith had brothers named Martin, b: 1806, James Marion, b: 1824, Joseph, b:1825, John A, b:1827. and a sister named Malinda, b:1830. Joseph and Owen Daffron's father I think was John Daffron, b: 1761 in Fairfax Co. VA. He had a brother named Rhody Daffron, b:1757 in Maryland. I am not positive, but I believe their father was Michael Daffron. I have not found much about Michael, but I do believe he was their father. So there were several William's and I am not sure which one, but I think this might help you.
