Just a quick note to those of you who are doing the actual searchs.I'm the first-born of Donald Douglas Laffoon, Sr. and Elaine A. Wehling/Laffoon of Martinton, Iroquois Co., IL.
My father was born in Donovan, Iroquois Co., IL. to Paul and Vera Laffoon (later to be Doran).His siblings were: Wilbur, Helen, Mary, and Barbara.
I have one full-brother, Donald Douglas Laffoon, Jr. (second-born) and a half-brother, Allan Laffoon (by Don Sr.'s marriage to Marsha Bullard of Kentland, IN.
I'm related to Ruby Laffoon, past Govenor of the State of Kentucky.
My late cousin, James Robert Laffoon (U.S. Marshal-San Diego, CA.) was performing a thorough geneology investigation into our family.However, J.R. passed away from cancer and I lost complete touch with his widow and family.He had completed at LEAST two full volumes of material!Any help reconnecting with his family would be much appreciated!
