      Sherry, That is my Sarah "Sally" Renfro also....looks like we may be related on both sides of the family. I haven't really done any research on Sarah "Sally" Lucinda yet...but I am sending you what I have on her husband, Henry. Is this what you have for Henry and Sarah also???

      Henry Figin Winters
      My 2nd great grandfather
      Birth 1791 in Rowan, North Carolina, United States
      Death 22 Dec 1845 in Tippah, Mississippi, United States
      Henry went by the last name of Figgin Winters, variation of Feigenwinter from his father. But one story has his widow Sara applying for a pension for his War of 1812 service, and having to apply with the last name of Winters and Figgin as a middle name. From that point on Winters is listed as the family last name. KFergus 2/2/11
