Re: DAFFRON, 1752-present

The problem with sharing the DAFFRON information I colected is that it is on a now defunct storage disc!
Also the reference I posted about the name D'Affron, I believe to be suspect. It was sent to me by somebody long ago, but some other researchers from both Britain and France told me that name does not exist. I personally feel it may be derived from DAFFORN as the DAFFRON spelling does occasionally show up in British DAFFORN records.
From memory, I know a RHODY DAFFRON was born in St. Mary's Co., Maryland about 1757 and served in the Rev War. He left Md. at an early age and wound up eventually in Kenucky.
I feel this Daffron family may be related to the DAFFINS and DAFFANS of Md. and Va. due to the way surname spellings changed.
I am sure that what I "remember" is pretty much standard knowledge amoung DAFFRON researchers and apologize. My notes were on a "Syquest" cartridge that is no longer produced. I don't know if it is the cartridge disc or the machine itself that is defective. I would otherwise gladly share what I had.
