I found more information on Stanley Coe Pyfrom’s family. His father’s full name was Harold Theodore Pyfrom and he was born in the Bahamas. His parents were Lucien Arnaud Murat Pyfrom and Ella Thurmutus Bethel. I couldn’t find their birth places, but both had Welsh surnames.

Also, Stanley Coe Pyfrom’s obituary is listed on Find A Grave.

Shawn’s paternal grandmother’s first name was Mary, as the obituary notes. Her maiden name may be Bright, but the only documentation I’ve seen is not official. Rootsweb lists her maiden name as Broght, but I think that’s a misspelling.

Thank you. That obituary confirms that it’s his grandfather, and it helped me trace Shawn’s paternal grandmother’s ancestry, as well.

How do you know that Stanley was Shawn’s grandfather? (although he did have the same name as Shawn’s father, so it’s likely).

Shawn’s brother Chris lists him as a family member on an old Myspace account. Also noteworthy is that Stanley was born and lived nearly all his life in Florida, where Shawn was born.

According to Ancestry.com, Priscilla Coe’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced all the way back to John Coo, who was born in 1340 in Gestingthorpe, England.

He’s a talented actor and he appears to be getting his life on track after dealing with some personal issues.
