Sherry, the Saffells in Lawrence County have me confused also. I do see one of your marriage dates if that is any help. Joe Collins to Bellzora Saffell 17 Oct 1897. My husbands line is through James Calvin Willmuth from Lawrence County. There is a marriage there that list J. C. Willmuth to Eliza A. Saffell 1 Aug 1889. We know that James Calvin Willmuth two daughters by his first wife that were living with him and his next wife. I suppose that wife number one is this Eliza Saffell, but I can't put her in a family. There is a girl there by that name but she always shows as single. I think it was rare for the father to get the daughters if the mother was still living. I would love to solve the Lawrence County Saffell puzzles. I have always wondered if there was a Eliza Willmuth buried there somewhere around Reeds Creek.

You state in your msg the "1890" census but I think you meant to say "1880", didn't you? My first thought was that maybe the older Saffell children listed there were his and the Daniels child was hers, but then I found a marriage record for John A. Saffell and Mary Taylor on 13 May 1865 which would indicate they are the parents of all of the Saffell children. I have tried to find a Saffell/Hardin marriage and the only one I see is a male Hardin and a female Saffell at a later time. Very confusing.
