I think I can help you.I looked through a Laffoon Gedcom and a seperate Laffoon file that I received from one Jan Ironside.There is a Keith branch in the family that married into the Laffoon's.However, the trouble is not being told anything.If you could get your Laffoon grandparents names that we give me something to go on. I will tell you there is the proverbial skeleton in the closet in the Laffoon family. Perhaps thats why your mother won't say anything. I will try to enlist the aid of other Laffoon researchers and see what comes up. Keep in touch, cousin.
