I am responding to a very old (1998) post of yours at Genealogy.com.
Your post said, "Looking for any information on Rufus Thrall, born 10/20/1861 in Omaho Nebraska. Family tradition says his Dad's name is Charlie, possibly born in Ohio, mother's name was Rachel Smith."
I am conducting research that includes the descendants of Rufus S. Thrall, born 20 Oct 1861 in Pickaway County, Ohio (often erroneously listed as being a native of Omaha, Nebraska).
Rufus' father was, indeed, Charles W. Thrall. His mother was Rachel Smith, daughter of Jacob Smith and Catherine Lister. I am attempting now to obtain information about Charles' parents, but have had no luck so far.
Rufus married Nettie May Haught, a native of Indiana. They had three children: Rufus Enlow Thrall, Edgar Allen Thrall, and Charles Walter Thrall.
If you are still out there and are interested in exchanging information, I sure would love to correspond with you.
