Stephen, According to information I currently have (unverified), Laura Rafuse was the dau. of Nelson A. and Sophie (Swinamer) Rafuse. In the 1871 Hants Co. census she was listed as being 8 years old, living in the Upper Vaughn Area. Nelson A was the son of George Daniel George Daniel was the son of John Philip John Philip was the son of Johannes (first Rafuse in Lunenburg County). Hope this may help.
