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
Regarding son of Henry and Sally, from Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Eastern Arkansas:
H. C. Winters is widely remembered as an old settler of Bedford Township. A native of Alabama, he is the eldest son of Henry and Sarah (Rinfrow) Winters, who came originally from North Carolina and Tennessee, respectively. Henry Winters went to Alabama in 1828 and settled in Morgan County, where he remained five years, going thence to Tippah County, Miss. He was twice married, and by his first wife had two boys, one of whom is living: Aaron, a resident of Pope County, Ark. Mr. Winters was married to the mother of our subject in 1828. They were the parents of six children, all of whom are still living: H. C., J. J. Thomas, William C., Mary E. (now Mrs. Harbinger) and Sarah J.
