Rufus M. Salmon was md. to Elizabeth and they had 3 children. It is unknown what happened to wife Elizabeth, but it appears she died prior to the death of Rufus.
Rufus died before the 1880 Federal Census and just before his death he send the youngest child to be raised/adopted by F.C. Woodard. Further, the first child of Rufus. Mary Frances, was taken in by the Murdock family to became a domestic servant for him and his wife. The two middle children, James and Arabella, have not been accounted for and it is unknown as to what happened to them. Arabella would have been abt. age 12 or less and James would have been abt. age 14 or less when their father died. It appears they were surely taken in by someone, but who?????
