Hello Valerie: Your query is quite interesting in that it gives Rufus Anderson and William Marcellus' mother's name as Margaret Elam. Both Rufus and William were enrolled in the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind in Staunton, Va. The school's records show their parents as Willis and Martha H. Mays. To this point, I do not know Martha's maiden name.
