My great greatgrandfather was Rufus Lemley. I believe his father was Manes, but I am not sure. I am also clueless about who his children were. I do know he had a grandson named Luther Cross who was my grandfather. He married Mary Arnold circa 1913 and had three kids: Luther Henry (my father 1914-1982), Lois, and Catherine. Luther Cross was killed in a mining accident in 1927. Luther Henry went on to marry Ruth Gwendolyn Lombard of Mobile, AL in 1955 and had 3 kids: Sharon Ruth, Luther Terrell, and Henry R.
I would like any info people have on Rufus, his kids, and who my greatgrandfather was. I know that Rufus was a Confederate Army Veteran and spent time as a POW in NY state. Any blanks you can fill in would be great, like occupations, religion, and burial sites. Thanks!!!
