Hi Liz, I'd post your request in every county where he did law enforcement work. I'd wait about a month and then I'd look up the towns where he worked and search for a genealogy society in the town or county. When I search for a gen. soc., I put Genealogy Society, County Name State in my web browser. I always find at least one.Many gen. soc's keep scrapbooks about a local famous citizen or can tell you more about the citizen. The local gen. soc. can tell you the local newspaper for the time, Rufus was living in that area. Also do a Google book search and enter his name. Maybe books have already been written about him. Successful Searching!
