RUFUS CHILDRESS (DOB 1836) (DOD Unk)(Wife's name unk) may be the father of your Rufus M. Childress.My Rufus Childress was born in Bibb County Ala.His parents wereAlford Childress and Bedia Baggett.
Do you have any reason to believe that my Rufus Childress was not the father of your Rufus M. Childress?
Based on the information available to me (most of it is unproven), Rufus Childress (wife's name unk) had one son - Rufus M. Childress who married Delila W. or Delia J. (maiden name unknown). This information came from the 1880 US Census of Blunt County Ala.
My Rufus M. Childress had 8 children: Clemen C.,Walter G.,Maud M., Elvy, Grace,Katie, Gunter and Alberta.This information came from the 1900 US Census of Marshall County Ala.
Hope to hear from you soon. Robert Childress of Texas
