Would you go in and double check on the edit you sent me. It looks like you have sent me Effie's number to add as her father instead of her father's #-- Do you know what Effie's father, William's # is?

RE: Sarah Cynthia Hon-Morton # 5980431
That memorial page aggravates me to no end. I have tried on several occasions to straighten it out. Since I am not in Sarah Cynthia's direct line, her brother William is my line, you might have a better claim in contacting the edit department. I'd say give it a shot.

Thomas D. Ruffin
Hello Pat. My actual connection is through his wife, Darthula Paralee Byrn.

The following are excerpts from the Lauderdale County Enterprise:

Lauderdale County Enterprise - Issue 25 Jan 1913
Thomas D. Ruffin, born Dec. 18, 1836, died at the Old Soldiers' Home, Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 1, 1913...Baptist since early manhood. Married in 1858 [1861] to Miss Paralee Byrn to which union were born eleven children, five of whom survive: R. J. and C. D. Ruffin of Memphis, TN., Mrs. R. C. Chaney of Tomberlan, Ark., and T. V. Ruffin and Mrs. J. M. Meacham of Ripley. Two sisters, Mrs. Agnes Bass and Mrs. Rowena Turner of DeWitt, Ark., also survive. Deceased was not subject to military duty, but early in the war volunteered and fought for his country in the cause that lost. In April 1912, while making his home with the oldest son, R. J. Ruffin in Memphis, he suffered a stroke of paralysis and was later moved to The Old Soldiers' Home in Nashville where he remained until his death which had as direct cause nauralgia of the heart. His remains were laid at rest in The Home cemetery at Nashville
[Lauderdale County Marriage Record shows the marriage was June 30, 1861. -BBD]

Administrator's notice - Thos. D. Ruffin, deceased; C. D. Ruffin, adm'r; T. V. Ruffin is a resident of Arkansas.

I believe the same family member gave information to the newspaper as well as for the tombstone which is slightly incorrect.

I also relate through the Meacham family.

Some of the family moved to Blytheville, Mississippi County, AR. I believe Thomas D. Ruffin was most likely born in Fayette County, TN.
