If anyone has any information on the Gaffin family, I would appreciate an E-Mail letting me know what you have, or where I can find it. I am interested mainly in the Gaffin families around Adams County, Ohio, or in Kentucky. Thank You

Jillian, Have James Gaffin/Catherina Van Deusen Family from Schagticoke(sp?)Rensselear County, NY (member of Reformed Church in Schagticoke). James/Catherina had five children-Mary (my line)mrd John Tobias, Johannes, Abraham mrd Anna Carpenter, Margarete, Johanna. This is a new line of research for me. My Mary lived and died in Cayuga Co, NY and the only one I know any more about is Abraham and he died in IL.
Have been corresponding with a Mark re a William Gaffin from Ohio trying to see if if our families connect.
Do you have history before Ohio? From what state did your Gaffins migrate? Any hint in your records?
Let's see if we connect. Patricia

My grandfathers name was James Gaffin and we are trying to find more information on where he was from. All we know at this time is that he was from the Alamance County area of North Carolina. Any information would be appreciated

I am a great-great grandson of Clement Orville Gaffin, great-grandson of Anna Mae Gaffin Harris. I saw your entries in Family Search and here as well. It was a great help since no one here could remember much of anything about the Gaffins. Clement and America are buried here. I have some information that we could share about them that was not complete in your entry in Family Search.

Hi Brian!

I'm very excited to have picked up your notice on the Gaffins! Wow! And what is even better is we are from the same family! I am a descendant of Minnie Mae Gaffin, through Henry B. Gaffin and Caroline Leedom. In fact, I'm the one that did the original research on the Adams Co.,Gaffin family--descendants of William Gaffin and Mary.....So, I am really excited to hear from you. I would love to exchange information, because I think you can help me alot with the the rest of Clement's family--and with help on the descendants of his brothers and sisters. Where are you ? Are you in Ohio?
Email me back.....we can plan our strategy....

Hi, I hope this doesn't come too late and you haven't started your own research on the Gaffin's because it has already been done by several people already. Contact me at and I will share with you what I have.
